Dressed up and going to church. These smocked outfit are super-popular here in the South (I don't really get the appeal, to be honest). Someone gave Eleanor this newborn smocked outfit as a gift so we got her all dressed up for church. I have to admit, she did look cute.

I adore this face!

Eleanor has discovered her hands! She loves to chew and suck on them, which gives her beloved green pacifier a bit of a break lately.

This was one of Mommy's first adventures out in the world by herself with the two girls: we went to our local Oak Grove Library storytime. It happened to be a show-and-tell day with the Hattiesburg Zoo, so Lila got to see (and pet!) a python and a huge barn owl. She was fearless with the python--crying "more" when they moved it away.

"Baby parking." Eleanor slept through most of the animal excitement. Mommy felt quite accomplished getting both girls dressed, out the door, and to the library on time for this first outing!

We don't normally allow Franklin to be so close to Eleanor while she's on the floor, but I noticed him gradually inching closer and closer so he could give her a little cuddle.

heart-melting smiles for mama

Lila has always been an avid reader, and now she's passing that love on to NorNor. As her expressive vocabulary has grown in recent months, she'll "read" each page to Eleanor, saying, "Look, Nor." She's also growing more and more independent and wants to do everything herself (like any normal 2yo). Lately, she'll say, "No sing, Mama." And when she's reading, if I even try to ask a question about the book, she'll say, "No read, Mama. My read."

This is (sadly) the quality of the very few kids activities we have around here. I was excited to hear about a Kidsburg event at the local multi-purpose center with a petting zoo, pony rides, arts/crafts center. So, we all went over on a Saturday afternoon. This was the "petting" zoo...no petting at all!
pixel
The highlight was the pony ride, which was probably worth the $5 admission. Lila was very confident and sure of herself on the pony.

This is what happens to Lila's hair on a sweaty, hot, humid August afternoon. I love these curls.

Sunday, Aug. 17: Lila's first night in her big girl bed! We'd been talking about and building up this moment for months. With so much transition moving back from Jackson and Eleanor's arrival, we didn't want her to feel like she was being kicked out of her crib so we waited a couple of months. She was so excited!
pixel
Her favorite phrase (still weeks later!) is "my own big bed." She loves to brag about her big girl bed.

Look at me!! Craig and I were prepared for a sleepless night, but she never once got out of bed. She did bounce and jump around for about an hour but finally settled down to sleep. We devised a sticker system where she would get a sticker for each night she stayed in her bed, and when she got 7 stickers she would get a special treat. This girl is very motivated by stickers!!

Still catching up...bear with me!
