Pat, Sarah, and Ty came to visit this weekend. Saturday, I had my first cross country meet in Rushville, so Sarah helped with Lily while visiting with Monica, Kendra, and Hannah. I was happy to be able to see all of them when I finally got home. Sorry to Ty for all of Lily's rough play. She was very excited to see her cousin!! Sunday, after church, we visited Nana and the girls went to the mall. Mimi and Papaw Jim had the Greiner family Labor Day picnic later on Sunday. It was lots of fun seeing everyone.

We can't keep up...

Lily is doing so many new things. Each day, I watch her learn something. She recently started saying "baba." On Friday, when Mimi (Grandma Mel) was leaving, she was trying to pull herself up in bed. On Saturday, as I was organizing things in her room, she crawled to my phone! Yes, she isn't even 7 months, and she is crawling. We are in for trouble! She can now get into everything. Nothing is safe! It is fun to watch her work so hard to get to the object she wants-her favorite is cell phones (wonder where she gets that from!). You can see that she doesn't like the feel of carpet on her knees, so she tries to pick them up. Goofy girl!

hi ty!

lily needs to work on being nice, but she gets excited to see ty!

WOW! We have a busy, fun weekend! Sarah, Pat, and Ty came on Friday night. Lily and Ty are so cute together. They "talk" baby language back and forth and play toys! Saturday, we had a baby shower at the Quinn's for Holly and Eric. Holly only has about 10 more weeks before she is due. We can't wait to meet baby Jones! Dan, Jen and Caitlyn came up for the weekend. We were able to see them at the shower and swim with them on Sunday. Caitlyn is growing up! Lydgia's Aunt Mary is also in from North Carolina. She was able to meet Lily and Ty at a Greiner family baptism and Pizza King party! We hope Lily is sooo tired she will sleep all night (hahaha).

Traci and Holly-I know you love to check pictures daily, so I will keep taking them :) Here is Lily, entertaining Jeff and I! She has started "yelling" at her toys. Later in life, she might need anger management classes or maybe she is just practicing to be a teacher! AND just look at her belly. I couldn't believe how it was folding over her diaper today!! Must be all those fruits and veggies!

This was a busy weekend for us. Saturday morning, I had cross country pictures and then spent a few hours working on my classroom. Jeff was in charge of Lily. She hasn't really been the best of babies because she has a little congestion and teething issues, but he made it! Later that evening, we had "date night" and went to Olive Garden for dinner. We were going to go to a movie, but we were too tired (give us a break, we have a daughter who doesn't sleep at night!) so we went and bought running shoes and called it a night at 8:00. Pathetic, I know! Baby steps!

Today after church, we had our parish picnic. I help organize the event, so it was kind of busy. The turn out was great, and everyone had a good time. Lily even had her first experience in a jumpy thing (don't know the technical term). She laughed and had fun.
It was also Jeff's 34th birthday today. Sadly, we did nothing too exciting after the picnic. Lily and I did allow him a birthday nap, and then the day went on as usual. After Lily FINALLY fell asleep, we celebrated with some cheesecake! I even sang a "Happy Birthday" solo :) Both of us are off to work tomorrow. BOOOO!
I am posting lots of random photos/video clips for your viewing. Thought you would enjoy!
