The Leaves Are Falling

Here Lilly is seating in front of our house with our pumkins on the front lawn.

One Friday night Lilly and I went golfing with Rusty. It was so much fun and Lilly loved riding in the golf cart.

The leaves are falling and we are enjoying this beautiful weather. We have a really neat park near our house and Lilly has had fun swinging in the baby swing. You can tell by her fun smile. Lilly is 8 months old and has just started to clap when you ask her to and occasionally wave bye bye. She is the most curious thing ever. She does not sit still for a moment unless you put cheerios on her highchair. Then she will sit there intently for 30 min. trying to pick them up with her hands to put them in her mouth. That saves me some good cooking time in the kitchen!

Lilly is at the stage where she wants a lot of attention. She likes to play, but would rather play with you or at least have you in the same room while she plays. I'm taking it all in, because I know children do not want you around forever.

I have been enjoying attending MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) and going to a Women's Bible Study called Can We Talk. It has been great to get to know some other Mom's. Something I have been praying for. Lilly has been doing pretty well in the nursery as long as there are a lot of other babies to play with. The most fun for me is when her eyes light up to see Mommy is there to pick her up.

Cute pictures! Lilly is really getting big. I can't believe it. She is going to be turning one before you know it!

A while back you asked about when we were going to Bartlesville next, and I don't remember if I ever responded. We will be there at New Years...that's when we always celebrate Christmas with Joel's family. You don't happen to be planning a trip there then, do ya? =)
