baby toupe

which way to comb is the question! poor annabelle! if i dont get the comb over just right, she is going to have a hair day like this-
The problem is i hate combing over too much, i dont need a donald trump baby. but if i comb over too little then her little bald spot is quite obvious- glaring in the flash :) And no matter how hard i tried to get that hair to stay down it kept popping right back up!

we have grass!

This is huge! with two boxers and no sprinklers we had given up. But then annabelle came around, she's going to need an outdoor space of her own that is poop free-complete with a tree swing.

So we had Chris build a fence on one side of the house for the dogs. what is now lush green grass was all dirt not long ago.
Then Dimmi came and put in a french drain. You can see it to the left side of Boston.
The grass was looking so good i was inspired me to plant some fall flowers
I even planted some tulips (my favorite flower) in the pots, with the pansies. I totally copied Chesapeake, they have the most gorgeous tulip/Pansie combo in the spring. I couldnt pull out the geranium though- can you see it about to bloom?? i decided she could stay for that last flower's sake.
My new backyard wouldnt have been complete for the season without a pumpkin. I think my backyard now looks much better than my front yard.

Minus the whole needing surgery/no paycheck part of being hit by a car, having alfie home has been a blessing. annabelle is totally smitten with him. i actually found myself a little jealous yesterday because she would only smile at him. i got worried she liked him more than me. i guess that whole daddy's little girl relationship starts early.
Of course he and i have lots of fun together too. This is how we spent our afternoon together yesterday. Fall has been so beautiful this year!
Correction- Oklahoma is actually having the season of Fall. Usually it goes from crazy hot (why do pools have to close on Labor Day) to freezing cold with ridiculous wind gusts (that make you wish you didnt have bangs) with perhaps a day or two, of what could be referred to as Fall, in between.

It has been mentioned several times now, that annabelle is going to be a red head. I have been rolling my eyes and saying whatever (under my breath). I mean she doesnt look red does she?

Then i saw this picture...

i guess anything is possible.

Bath Time!!

My daughter is always cute, this goes without saying, but she is especially cute during her bath or wrapped up in a towel after.

does it look like she might be a little scared of the flash??

Race for the Cure

I've only done it one other time, but it is always sooo much fun! We dominated the hill (aka mountain) at the end, so dont mind our sweaty faces or the fact that i am trying to stand sideways to the camera so i dont look so pregnant... thanks michael for patiently waiting for me to approve a shot...

And of course, we had to get a picture with our trainers

Because i am working on taking more family shots

need to take more pics

i honestly believe i would blog more if i had an iphone. i'm not saying i need one, just that i think snapping a photo and uploading it straight to my blog would be awesome. one of those time savers i now appreciate a whole lot more.

here's the first photos i have taken with annabelle, plus a family shot, since her birth 3 mths ago...

Can I Go Too?!

Annabelle helped Alfie pack for his tournament in California. We both wanted to go, unfortunately she was the one that fit into his suitcase...

Bad Car Day

Early today i got pulled over and issued a ticket for expired tags- fair enough, they had expired back in April.

Then this afternoon alfie was walking into work and got hit by a car backing up in the parking lot. We spent the afternoon in the ER.

No broken bones, but waiting for swelling to go down for an MRI on friday. Hoping he is just a little banged up and nothing serious... for now he is on crutches.

Daddy Gave Me a Bath Last Night

and he brushed my hair. It's a new look.

Mid-Life Crisis

I think i am having one. This morning i woke up wanting to get something pierced or get a tattoo, perhaps even spend my Saturday night at Sky Bar... seriously?? I think it started with trying on a skirt yesterday and looking at the length thinking "this is so not practical" All the bending over and picking up a sweet little baby would make me look like a hoochy momma, not a stylish momma. I have the urge to do something wild and crazy... my husband is still out of town... what should i do??
