Surprise Visit from Grandma and Grandpa Loden, Great Grandma "B"

The kids got a nice surprise when the doorbell rang this afternoon. (So did I, as it awoke me from my sleep in the recliner) It was Grandma and Grandpa Loden, and Great Grandma "B". We all had a blast catching up and eating pie! Grandpa Loden brought over a lawn mower and I gave him a grill.

Grandkids with the grandparents!

"I love being held!"

Air Hockey


After finding every puddle in his grandparent's backyard, Nathaniel stripped down and enjoyed a game of air hockey. He picked up the rules rather quickly, excepting the one where you can't lay your body over your own goal. Being so scrawny, his cousin was able to manuever the puck between ribs and score nonetheless. Nathaniel managed to slip a few pucks in his opponent's goal as well. Bonus points if you noticed Gram's whoops moment when she put a hot iron to rest on the table top!

Naughty Nora


Even at 11 months, Nora knows that she shouldn't play with the kleenex. That doesn't stop her from making it snow in our living room. The grin is because dad is taking a picture instead of taking it away from her!

A Halloween in a Galaxy Far Far Away

Hope your last name doesn't begin with M


Dave B. was right. I feel pretty good that I got out and voted. It turns out the Official Alabama Voter website pointed me to the Best Western on College St. where I was turned away. I drove over to Dean Rd. Rec Center and cast my vote there and filled a change of address form.

Peas and No Thank You



Nathaniel has a special place for peas in his heart ... somewhere near the bottom. Knowing he had done wrong, he tried to appease me ... Guess its back to the drawing board as we teach him to mind his Ps and Qs.



Our little first tailgating experience as a family including little miss Auburn here. We all went to the Neptune Tailgating RV and watched football, chatted it up, and ate some great BBQ.

First Date

Now that I am a mother, I am a huge supporter of arranged marriages. So, needless to say, Nora is already "attached" to Gavin Lamb. Here is a picture of their first "date" and, as you can see, both are thrilled. :)

(We put Nora next to Gavin when Brian and Lisa came to visit us in the hospital. Gavin smiled and we caught the moment on film.)
~ Aren't they an adorable couple?!? ~

Roly Poly

Nora started rolling over about 1 1/2 months ago. We thought it was a fluke at first, but now she does it all the time. It just took us awhile to finally catch it on tape. ;)

The Weigh In...

This past week was "Weigh In" for both Nathaniel and Nora.

Nora, at four months, weighed in at 11 lbs. 3 oz. and 23 inches tall. She is in the 35th percentile for height and the 5th percentile for weight. Well...she's "chunky" to us, because Nathaniel was a lot smaller at her age... ;)


Nathaniel, at 25 months, weighed in at 27 pounds and 35 inches tall. He is in the 50th percentile for weight and 60th percentile for height. Our little boy has come a long way from being in the <5 percentile for weight...we're so proud!

Nathaniel loves holding his little sister.

Nora doesn't let the straight-jacket swaddling blanket get between her and her freedom. Let my fingers go!
