So since we added baby Carlisle to our family, life has been super busy! She is growing like a weed-almost 9 weeks already! She'll be getting her 8 week shots on Tuesday (boo!) and we have LOTS of questions for the pediatrician. Just as we did with Sherrod, she is having to try every kind of formula out there because nothing seems to work-not even the expensive "liquid gold" as my doctor calls it. Poor baby girl! But she is beginning to smile a good bit :)
Sherrod has been a great big brother. I thought when we came home from the hospital that it was going to be rough considering he loved to hit her but daddy dearest put a stop to that quickly! Now he always wants to know where she is and why she isn't going somewhere that he is. He loves holding her hands and playing with her feet. Sweet boy! I can't wait til they can actually play together and communicate with each other!
Two healthy babies-God sure has been good to our family!

Best Buddies

This little boy has been in lots of my previous posts. Sherrod and Hudson absolutely love playing together. Last week their school went to the PDS pumpkin patch to pick out a pumpkin. I didn't get to attend since I just started back to work from maternity leave, so thanks Candice for the pictures! We also took the boys to the air show in Merigold where they could see old fighter planes and ride on a hayride. They had lots of fun and we finished at Locals where they got to pick out and paint a pumpkin. It was a wonderful, relaxing weekend with perfect weather!

Jackson Street Fall Festival and State Fair

We went down to visit my parents a couple of weeks ago so that Sherrod could go to the Fall Fest in Ridgeland and to the Mississippi State Fair. He had a blast! He was able to ride a train, paint pumpkins, ride a pony and more at the Fall Fest. It was a bit chilly, but fun for the family. We also went to the fair and I think the highlight was either the race car ride or the petting zoo. He insisted we do those twice and of course we did. I was disappointed I didn't get to eat much of the greasy fair food, but it's a little bit different with a little one wanting to go in a million different directions all at once! Can't wait for next year!

Sherrod and Carlisle's First Bath Together

Sherrod LOVED this!!! He thought it was the funniest thing ever! Wasn't too easy for me so for now they take separate ones...

Carlisle's First Day at Delta State

Dove Hunt 2009

I am so far behind - we're going all the way back to Labor Day weekend with our annual dove hunt we have at the Lester Farm. It was a weekend full of fun, friends, family...and of course lots and lots of food! Oh and a little bit of hunting! Wow how things have changed...This used to be a weekend ALL about hunting, but then we all got married and started families! Although some of the men would probably prefer more hunting, I doubt any of them would change a thing :) The kids played their little hearts out from jumping in the space jump to swimming in the lake. I'm sad to say that we were missing 2 of the usual little munchkins (the Carter boys)but hope to see them next year so we can add to the craziness!
