Happy Halloween

What a fun first Halloween we had... We went to visit with Pam and mom took Callie Grace to see Cito, ( her other grandmother.. Cito, is arabic for grandmother ) :) I had a bad headache so had to rest during that visit, but I luckily got to feeling some better. Callie Grace and I stayed home and passed out candy to all the trick or treaters... I loved all the kids and seeing their costumes, so sweet!

MTSU pics

For some reason I couldn't place these pics on the last post...

Trip to Mississippi and MT vs MS state game

Well we had an unexpected trip to Mississippi for my grandfather's funeral, but while there we got to get in a quick visit with MaMa and Aunt Cynthia, so that part was nice. I am just still so amazed at how fast Callie Grace is growing up. She is about to be 8 months old !! She is still not crawling yet, but she is so close! once she starts going, I have a feeling we are never going to be able to catch her! Another great visit was this past weekend when Aunt Amy, Uncle Darren, and Isaac came to visit and go to the MTSU vs. Mississippi State game. The weather was miserable, but we had a great time. I think Isaac was much more interested in Callie Grace this visit because she could actually interact and try to play with him. They were so cute together.

Bath Fun and check out her 6 month pics!!

I am so excited to say that Callie Grace's 6 month proofs are now in, and they turned out so cute!! Heather Latimer is such a talented photographer, I have known her for years and watched her career grow, so proud of her! You can go and look at her proofs by going to her web site :, you will then click on "visit web site" on the left and then click on "client galleries", in the bottom right corner you will see a place to enter a password, which is "cgp", then you will see all of the proofs... Let me know which are your favorites to help me decide... THANKS!! Callie Grace has a great time getting her first bath in the sink, She has been taking a bath in the big bath tub but her bath ring broke and so far I cant find another one, not sure why... so we used the kitchen sink and she had the best time making the biggest mess splashing wather EVERYWHERE! she was covered in baby food already so she had a great time!!

Go Raiders Go!!!

Callie Grace attended her first MTSU tailgating. If you know my family, they are dedicated Blue Raider fans who attend every game and spend almost the entire day tailgating. Thankfully at this game they didn't show up with blue hair, or blue beards, or some of their special outfits.. :) Callie Grace wore her dress that Pam had given her at my baby shower and showed off her Raider pride. This will definately be a regular part of her life, so a good thing we are breaking her in early. We had a great time getting to see everyone...

This is one of my favorite pictures, i love her smile and that you can see her two teeth she has now... so sweet..

Callie Grace meets Callie Marie

Callie Grace woke up early on Sunday morning so I decided to not wake the rest of the house up and take her outside for a quick photo shoot before it got too hot... I love how they turned out in her overalls.. too cute..

We spent this weekend in Mississippi visiting family. Callie Grace got to meet my great Aunt Callie that she is named after. I had not seen her in so long and the visit meant so much to us all. Gina, her daughter was there as well. Callie Grace was having a rough day of teething, I so wish she had been in a better mood, but we still had a nice time.

Growing up so fast...

You always here people talk about how fast kids grow up, and in my line of work I have definately seen and felt this, considering that some of my students have now graduated college, and some have come back to work as my staff. Its just crazy how fast time flies, but now that I have my own child, I can say its going by even faster. Each everyday she changes and matures in so many ways. These pics I took this weekend were just on the spur of the moment after she has just woken up, but she just looked older, wiser... from even just the day before... but with every passing day I think I am more and more in love with her...
