September and Flood

Hello everyone!  Sorry I have not posted in a while, but things have been a bit crazy around here.  Between my work schedule, Fran traveling all the time, the "flood" in our condo, and a crazy 19 month old running around.... I have been quite busy! But that being said things are good.  We went to the first home SC game in September and had a blast! I also went to the DNC which was super fun, really a great experience.  Bella is getting bigger every minute and is really talking and trying to use her words. She is also very independent and needs to learn a little patience ; )  A couple weeks ago, our condo got flooded due to a pipe that burst.  Needless to say, we had to move out of our condo and move into a temporary one until ours is fixed.  Oh do I love moving ; ( Can you sense the sarcasm??  Anyway, right when it happened, we stayed at the Gaylord hotel and I think Bella had some fun.  The crib she slept in was pretty horrible, looked like a crib you find in the hospital, but it worked and she slept like a baby.  We have adjusted well to our temporary condo.  Bella seems to like it.  I think we will be here for a month or so. This weekend we are headed down to SC for the Georgia game and for Shannon's baby shower.  We can't wait to celebrate her and the twins!

First Trip to Cape Cod, MA

Bella and I flew up to Chatham, MA last weekend to meet up with Fran. It was all of our first visits to Cape Cod and we had a great time!  Here are some pictures from our trip!

August stuff

We have had quite a busy August and I am sorry I have not posted in a long time!  Shame on me!  So the month started off with Bella going to her first MLB game. I took her to see the Nationals play the Phillies.  Daddy had to work during the game, but we were able to meet up with him and hang out.  Bella loved it!  She loved clapping and saying "yay" for the team!  She also loved the hot dog, it's one of her favorites!  The first weekend in August we headed down to SC for Hampton's First Birthday party!  And also to celebrate my best friend's birthday, since she shares birthdays with her baby Hampton.  Last year she didn't get to celebrate her birthday as she was in labor, so this year we went out and had some fun.  Hampton's party was a pool party and we had a great time.  There was even a suprise visit by Cocky!  Bella points to the pictures now and says "Cocka"...haha close enough.  

The next weekend I headed down to Charlotte to celebrate my friend Carrie's wedding.  It was so much fun, as a bunch of my college friends were there, who I don't see much.  We had a great time and Carrie was a beautiful bride!  I also got to spend time with some friends who I know from living in Charlotte.  It was so nice to see them, as it has been way too long!

Bella is growing up so fast.  She is really starting to talk more and more each day.  She is quite the little actress as well and loves to dance.  Her favorite songs right now in Bella's own words are "Boom Boom" (Super bass by Nicki Minaj), "I, I" (Like a Love Song, Selena Gomez) and the always popular "Baby" by Justin Beiber.  Right now she is saying "No" quite a bit and testing her mommy and daddy, so that is loads of fun, haha.  Bella is such a happy girl and we enjoy every moment we spend with her.  Bella also loves spending time with her BFF Elle.  Pictures to follow of course.

So in no particular order, here are pictures from the month of August so far!
