Happenings at Home

Sorry it has been so long since our last post. Mary Paul is growing bigger everyday and learning new things all the time. She has been pulling up to a stand on things for awhile now, but is now cruising around holding onto furniture like a pro!! She also climbs on top of any piece of furniture that she can. She can sit on her knees and has learned to clap. She now claps between bites during her meal times. Mary Paul is also an avid pointer. She points at everything and everyone. She occasionally does the double point at you. When she sees Daisy, she points at her (of course) and says something that sounds very close to Daisy. She continues to love bath time and make spitting noises with her mouth. My family was in town this past weekend so it was full of sisters, mom, cousins, brother-in-laws and fun. Today, Daisy chewed up a dirty diaper that had belonged to a cousin.

Weekend at the Lake

This past weekend my friend Kelly invited us to her family's lake house on Tim's Ford Lake. It was beautiful!!! We had great weather, great company, great food and conversation. Mary Paul had so much fun playing in the kiddie pool and sitting in the middle of this huge round float!! Bryan and I had fun on the jet skis and tubing....but I think the award for Most Fun Had During a Lake Weekend goes to....Daisy the Wonder Dog!!! She loves the water and played and played and played all weekend. The dog who never tires got off of her bed for breakfast Sunday morning (we got home late Saturday night), ate and then went right back to sleep.
