Surgery Update!

Nolan did not have his surgery today because of his asthma (we had him on the nebulizer and the risk for putting him under was too great). So, looks like it will be the end of September now. I will update when we know for sure! :-)

What's new with the kiddos?

Nolan started back to school this past week! He was soooo excited to go back after a very LONG summer.
I cannot believe it's his last year of preschool and next year he starts kindergarten. Hardly seems possible that I am old enough to have a child in kindergarten.

Here are some pictures from his first day. He looked so handsome and was so proud of himself!

And... Arden Grace is 10 months old this month!

I am not rushing it by ANY means, but her first year old birthday party plans are in full swing I cannot wait to show you how cute everything is!

We are just enjoying her being the happy baby she is...I don't want her to grow up so fast!

At 10 months old, Arden, you...

Have 4 teeth and several on the way. 2 more on top and looks like 2 more on the bottom.
You play peek-a-boo now, and love to cover your head with your arms when I say "where's arden?"
You clap for yourselff all the time, and still love to wave at everyone. You also can say "Hi!" but it comes out very southern...it's hysterical!  You are SUCH a flirt!

You also say "mama" and "dada".
You shake your head "no".
You love to dance and "sing" to your musical toys.

You love, love, love your baby dolls. It is so cute to see your face light up when you see them, and when I say "kiss your baby Arden" you lean in and smother them. It's so cute!
You stand alone without support for a few seconds..I dont think it will be long before you are walking!
Oh boy!


Photobucket

You play with Nolan and the two of you just laugh and laugh. I love that you are such great friends even though you are 3 years apart.
You caught your first cold from Nolan when he went back to school this week. You are such a healthy baby and have not been sick once! This week you have been so sick though. :-(
Looks like you are on the mend though and we are very thankful for that!


You are sooo much fun, Arden, and we love you to pieces!


Stay tuned for lots to come in the next few weeks!
Also, pray for Nolan as he is having surgery on Thursday. I am very nervous!!  I know everything will be okay, but I just have that momma worry. :-) I will update later this week!

Pretty Girl

That's what we call her around here...either pretty girl, or baby girl...also known as our sweet baby Arden.
Even Nolan calls her "pretty girl". Its so cute!

Photobucket

Arden, you are 9 monthys old already, and I cannot believe how fast time goes!
At 9 months old, baby girl, you weighed in at 22lbs 6oz and are 29 inches tall.  This puts you in the 95% for height and weight, just like your brother!

You are doing so many new things this month.  You are officially a crawler. EVERYWHERE. And now you are fast!
You love to pull up on everything. I am thinking you are going to be walking soon!  You are ready!
You love to crinkle your nose and smile so big. It is so cute and makes everyone laugh so hard!
You are such a little flirt, you love to do that to everyone we see when we are out and about, and they melt!
We are in trouble!

Photobucket


You have 3 teeth, 2 on bottom and 1 on top. The other is starting to come in as well.
You are eating everything, and I mean everything.  You love to eat what we are eating.
So far there isn't anything that you have been allergic to, so we just kep trying all kinds of new things!
You are such a good girl. You are so content when we are out.  SO much so, that people don't even believe that you really do fuss.  You just love to be out and be social.
You love baby dolls, and your face lights up when you see them.
You are playing with everything, and love to explore new things. You love to try and keep up with Nolan.
You are still sleeping well. We put you down at 7 and you sleep until 7. Sometimes even 7:30!
You nap twice a day, for about an hour or so both times.
You are still in a size 4 diaper and clothes are about 12 months. We are getting close to needing the next size.
You are very vocal and love to get our attention any way you can. It is so funny!
You love to wave at everyone.

Photobucket

Arden, you are such a blessing. Daddy and I are so overwhelmed by the love we have for you and your big brother.  Thanks for all the joy you bring into our lives. We can't wait to see what 10 months brings!
We love you!
Momma :-)
