We couldn't call ourselves Texans if we didn't...

Take pictures in the BLUEBONNETS!

So the first experience of taking Caroline's pictures in the bluebonnets went incredibly well. It probably didn't hurt things that Grandmommie was right there standing behind making ridiculous noises and swinging all types of toys to capture and keep her attention. She seemed to enjoy it. There were no melt downs to speak of...I was impressed!

Getting placed in the Bumbo...let the picture taking begin!

What a smile!

She really enjoyed it!

So after pictures in the bluebonnets we ran errands and got back to the house around 5:30. Caroline was such a trooper. Then it was time to wash all of her 6-9 month clothes. Quite the undertaking if you have seen her closet! But I got it done nonetheless. I also got her baby food made for the next two weeks, hopefully. She'll be having sweet potatoes, butternut squash, green beans and applesauce. She had applesauce for the first time Sunday and she loved it!

Uncle Eric dropped by on Sunday on his way home to Austin. Caroline just loves her Uncle Eric and had the best time smiling at him.

Then there were some restroom issues with Caroline and Karo syrup was involved so my Grandmommie decided to spend Sunday night just in case the syrup took effect in the middle of the night. If I had just been a little bit patient things would've worked themselves out and I wouldn't have had to make the THIRD trip to Wal-Mart on Sunday! She was just so miserable I felt so bad for her. But I got my loving and sweet baby back Sunday afternoon and Grandmommie got to finish our window boxes. I'll have to share pictures of our new plants in my next post.

Off to know that thing that pays the bills! HAPPY MONDAY!!!!!!!!!

Kate, I'm going to need a tutorial about how to upload the video. I swear I'm trying but it's kind of hard these days with the baby but I'll try my hardest I promise.
