7 Months Old


The boys had their 7 month birthday yesterday. They are getting so much bigger. I remember holding them when they were 3lbs thinking how tiny they were and now when I pick up one of them my back hurts!!

They are much more "mobile" now adays. You can't put them down on a play mat or blanket and walk away anymore because you will find them across the room! Carter is still trying to crawl but not quite there yet. They are a little behind on the sitting up unassisted thing but they are getting really close. People say one day they will just sit up and do it!

Our food palate is ever expanding. We have moved onto the pureed meats and meals. They seem to really like trying new things which is good. I can tell when they really like something because they both kick and reach for the spoon, super cute.

And getting pictures of them together now is nearly impossible. I tried my monthly pictures yesterday and it did not go so well. The one I posted is the best I could do! One will wiggle down, the other will look away or poke the other in the eye...not fun!

We are getting ready for our first Thanksgiving which my brother and his wife will be hosting this year. I am ready for some Turkey! I hope everyone has a great holiday:)

I got my new camera!!!







And I love it! It's awesome even though I have no idea how to use it properly!! haa! I have a lot of reading and learning to do but I am so happy with the purchase. We got a Nikon D60 digital SLR camera. It's pretty user friendly but far more advance than my little point and shoot that I am used to.

I did a mini photo shoot yesterday with the boys. They were great. It was Daddy that was not so great. Daryl is not into the picture thing and it's quite obvious! He's a terrible model...so tempermental! haha!!

And if your wondering how and why we would spend money so freely in our current economic situation.....well, I sold our Nintendo Wii because it's been sitting next to our T.V. since about August and I have not turned it on once!! Now I just need to sell the Wii Fit and the camera is essentially paid for. I also have to thank GiGi (my grandma) for donating to the Richburg camera fund as well. I think she hopes that I will be the next Anne Geddes!! haha!! A girl can dream right?

Enjoy the pictures! And anyone who wants to buy a Wii Fit...CALL ME!!

New Kids On the Block





AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! That's all I have done for 48 hours straight between the Gator game and the New Kids concert I know sound like Kathleen Turner, and not the sexy Kathleen Turner...more like the "older" Kathleen Turner.
The concert was incredible! They were just as good if not better than they were 20 years ago! We once again had amazing seats and Steph got MUCH better pics than I did but I am fairly certain that no-one that reads this blog cares anything about seeing a close up of my dream guy...JOE MCINTYRE!! I guess I should rephrase that and say my runner up dream guy cause Daryl is my real dream guy! (Do your teeth hurt yet from the sweetness?)

Florida vs. Georgia








So on Saturday Daryl got husband of the year award and stayed home with the boys so mommy could go watch the Gators beat the heck out of the Georgia Bulldogs! We had amazing seats right on the 10 yard line. We even got on T.V.!! Of course I had to pause and rewind a few times but we are on there and that's all that maters! The game was awesome! We got total revenge for what happened last year.
We started tailgating at 9am with mimosas and I think I cracked open the first beer of the day at 10am. But let me say this, I can not hang like I used to! I was exhausted by 1pm and the game didn't even start till 3:30pm! But it was all worth it to see such an amazing game.
The picture of the stands is after the game, Enough said!!

Where do I start after the weekend we've had?






How about Friday...Halloween! We decided to stay home and hang out with our neighbors to hand out candy since it was our first Halloween in this house. We had a great time hanging out but didn't have too many trick-or-treaters though. The boys did great just chilling in the stroller in their dragon costumes.
