We were supposed to go to a band function on Saturday but it got rained out, so I got very creative. You guys won't believe what I have learned to do! Post coming soon. Stay tuned...

- Babylegs. Like baby leg warmers, these little things are SO cute and so far, Margaret Anne likes them too! They are warm, not nearly as difficult to put on as tights or leggings are, and the best part is that you don't have to take them off to change her diaper! I have her some in several colors: pink, white, orange (war eagle that), black, and purple.
4. NEW EPISODES!!! My favorite TV shows have finally started showing new episodes. I love "House, M.D.," "Criminal Minds" (the show last night was SO good), "The Office," "30 Rock," "Grey's Anatomy," and "Private Practice." I have NO idea when I will ever be able to catch up on everything that I have DVR'd!
5. This weekend is the Greek Food Festival at the Greek Orthodox church downtown. I love going and we try to go every year. They have fantastic food, wine, Greek music, dancers, and shopping! Not to even mention the yummy desserts (baklava, anyone??)!
One more thing I love... my husband, of course!!!

Margaret Anne ate a good dinner tonight (peas, pasta wheels with chicken and carrots) so I thought I would let her have a treat that I used to love when I was little - oatmeal creme pie! I will have to say this isn't her first one. I also have to say that I asked the doctor if she could have a few treats like this, and he said as long as she doesn't stop eating her regular food it is fine, and so far she is still eating it. I think she is so good that she deserves a few treats. I hope you enjoy the video as much as she enjoyed her dessert!
She keeps looking up at Hays who was standing behind me. We had a little drop at the end, but that bib is awesome and catches everything that falls! Thanks Jessica!
A cute story. Margaret Anne goes to daycare with 2 year old Addison ( I teach with Addison's dad, Jason) and Jason told me this morning that he asked Addison if Margaret Anne was her best friend and she said "yes." Then later she was playing with her cell phone and said she was going to "call Margaret Anne." I think that is SO cute.

We had family in town last weekend. Alan and Sandi were here, and my mom and dad (he just came for a little while). We went to the high school football game on Friday night, and it was SO fun because Margaret Anne just loves the marching band and loves watching my girls dance. I think we may have a future dancer on our hands! We watched Auburn vs. Mississippi State on Saturday night and had great fellowship with the family. My Aunt Donna, Uncle Tim, MeeMaw, and Mary Margaret came over to join us all and brought some yummy homemade chili, and we had a great time visiting with everyone and watching my Auburn tigers win!
I hope I have time to put up some more pictures soon and blog a little more, but I have a lot to get done! School has been so busy, it seems like everything is happening at once. I am also working on a new baby wreath for a friend, so stay tuned for pictures of that!

We better start saving now for all of the therapy bills, but (or should I say "butt") it was too funny not to post. Happy Labor Day!

Scott and Stephanie
My good friend Rachel. We just happened to be tailgating right next to them! She and I have been friends since 4 year old kindergarten. It was so great to see her and her husband Daniel, who I have also known for as long as I can remember.
That is why I LOVE returning to Auburn. It is nice when our team does well, but it is the tradition, the beauty of the campus, the old and new buildings, and all of the other wonderful things about being an AU alum that make me say "I believe in Auburn. And love it."

This has been a really busy week for me, and for everybody that I work with. We have our big rival football game this Friday night, and my girls have been trying to revamp their field show routine and perfect their routine for Friday's pep rally. They have practiced in all of their spare time this week and are even getting to school at 7am tomorrow morning to get in a few extra minutes of practice. I love those girls! They work so hard and I really hope it pays off for them.

She is totally off of bottles and baby food, and I honestly don't think she even noticed the transition. She LOVES whole milk (as you can see in the video from the previous post) and will drink out of any type of sippy cup. That is a good thing because when I was introducing her to the sippy she wouldn't take any of them and I think I bought every kind of cup ever made. She loves to eat and will eat pretty much anything, but she has a major preference for chicken fingers and cookies. I asked the DR about the cookies and he said they are ok as long as she is eating her other food, and she is. She laps up green beans and diced carrots, too!
She has this new thing with putting her food pieces on her head and when she does it she just laughs... she has to get a bath every night after dinner because her hair is usually crusted with food. YUM.
She is still sitting backwards in the car seat... even though she did get a new big girl car seat for her birthday (thanks Nonna and Grampa)! We just installed it rear facing. The doctor said to keep her rear facing because it is safest and she really doesn't know any different, and is pretty happy in the car.
There you have it, MA's big girl stats. I don't know about you guys, but I am floored by the changes made in just a year. She is growing up too fast!
