What We've Been Up to Lately

There were two directions that this post could go. After typing the title, I thought that I could sum things up by posting only one word: "WORK." But upon further inspection, I realized that we have managed to squeeze in some fun recently, we just haven't had time to blog about it, so here goes.

First up, Stella and Daddy following their normal morning routine of watching Elmo in bed on the laptop while Mommy gets ready. Double chin twins...
Grandmere and Stella breaking the "no battery powered riding toys" rule for the second time in less than a month...
Stella telling Grandpa, "No! You cannot have a bite!"
Grandma Tonie and Stella enjoying the comics...
In Dubberly Mommy's standards for her personal appearance are a little more relaxed...
Daddy and Stella participating in her favorite pastime at Grandpa's house: visiting the cows.
Thinking about running away to join the herd...
Stella promising me that she will be "right back."
Feeding Zonaida treats...
One is never enough. More, please!
We even sneaked some to the neighbors' dogs. (This is what happens when you're not home, Em!)
We visited a cool park while we were in Minden. While at the park, Stella had a moment of panic when she realized that her daddy was actually stuck in the slide...
Of course, we went to the playground only for Stella's enjoyment. We're sacrificial like that...
Ummmm, could you stop playing and help me slide again?
Ready.....set.....go!
Wheeee!
Snack time at the pool on Labor Day, our last pool trip of the summer....
It had been a few weeks since we had been to the pool, and Stella had gotten really brave, which resulted in her dunking her head a few times, but it did not seem to phase her at all.
Moving on from the joys of summer...tonight Stella got to experience one of the joys of fall: her first football game. You can tell that she was totally engrossed in the action on the field and not distracted at all by the other kids in the stands.
In other news, Stella has been cutting her eye teeth recently. The two on top are already peeking through, so we now have 14 teeth. The bottom ones aren't far behind! She has also been expanding her diet. One of her new favorites is rotini noodles in red sauce which she affectionately calls "Noo's." We have big plans for weekend fun, so tune back in soon to hear more about that!

Audrey and Stella have so much in common...watching other children, eating noodles dipped in sauce, etc!
Sorry that work is in full swing but it does look like you've been having some fun too!
