Party Party Party

Hey guys! How's it going? Man, summer is one crazy busy season. I don't know about you all but Daddy and I have been all kinds of busy. He says that's pretty normal for the summer months around here and that things will settle down eventually. But I don't mind the busyness because all our running around makes for great adventures. For example, we get to take Tuck on most of our car rides and he gets super excited whenever Daddy says the word "ride" or even jingles the car keys. Today Daddy, Mimi, Papau and I were going to a graduation party and Tucker wanted to go so bad that he jumped through the car window since Daddy wouldn't open the door so he could get in the car!! Can you believe it?! Thank goodness the window was down, he would have bonked his head good. He didn't get to go that time but when he does come with us he rides shotgun with his head out the window. It's really cute.

OK, enough about Tuck. Let's talk about me. I mean, it is my blog after all. So, Daddy and I have been keeping real busy with reading books and taking walks and going on little adventures. On Friday, Daddy and I even went over to the house of one of Daddy's friends from swimming and had a grill out. Friday nights are usually "date night" for Daddy and me and we typically read, play around or just watch a movie. I snuggle in with Daddy and take a good nap while he watches a movie. But this Friday was different. We went and hung out with our friends instead and what a great time!! We just sat out on the back porch and chatted. They all were amazed at how big I am getting. Daddy says if he were a betting man, he would put my weight just shy of 11 lbs. Maybe, 10 lbs 14oz. We'll see on Friday because that is when we go see my tummy doctor.
Speaking of tummy stuff. Mine seems to be working just wonderfully. Actually, I even showed our hosts on Friday how well my tummy is processing my meals. I must say though, even though Daddy is a champ with changing diapers this particular diaper messin' took a ton of wipes to clean up. And I think Daddy even got some do-do on his hand. Eeewww!! Hehe.... But anyway, all that is to say that I am feeling fantastic and I can't wait to see what my doctor says. We will be sure to keep you posted.

Saturday was SUPER busy! Daddy and I woke up around 7 but just snuggled together until 8ish before getting out of bed for breakfast. I had my usual meal and then Daddy and I got our things together to go spend the day at Mimi and Papau's for Uncle Ian's graduation party. That was a great time! Lot's of people were there and I even got to wear Ian's funny looking hat. I guess when you graduate they make you wear a goofy hat that looks like a table atop your head. Well, it may not be much of a fashion statement but Daddy says I looked great in the cap and that some day I will be wearing one for my own graduation. Do they come in pink?
I got to meet all kinds of new people at Ian's party. I have to say we have some pretty cool family and friends and they all wanted to see me. Uncle MJ and I got to kid around with eachother and had a blast! (see pic below). Anyway, it was a great time getting to see and meet everybody but gosh, it sure is exhausting. Daddy, Tucker and I headed home around 8 and after my 9:30 bottle of boob juice, I sacked out until 7:30 Sunday morning. I was pooped!!
Today was totally awesome because my Grandma and Poppy came over to watch me in the morning while Daddy went to church. It was soo good to see them. They have been out of town on vacation for the last week and I was starting to have withdrawal. Apparently the symptoms of withdrawal were mutual and they were really excited to see me too. We had a great time together going for a walk and hanging out in the front yard. I am soo happy that they are home and tomorrow I get to spend the whole day with Poppy since he is watching me. It's gonna be great!!

Once Daddy got back from church we headed over to Mimi's again because we had another party to go to. Boy, there sure are a lot of people graduating! For those of you who don't live in the 'Nati (that's street jive for Cincinnati if you didn't catch on), it was pretty warm today and the party was outside. We didn't stay long at the party on account of it being so hot but it was really neat to go to. Daddy and I met a bunch of people who follow my progress on the blog who we never knew existed. I have to say it's pretty cool to have so many people we don't know pulling for us. So, if we met you today (and you know who you are) thanks for coming to say "hi" and introducing yourself. We loved meeting you even though it was a short chat. You rock!
If this running around wasn't already enough, Daddy, Tuck and I had one more stop today. We had family dinner and Grandma and Poppy's house. We love family dinner night!! I get to love on my aunts and uncles and Daddy gets to love on Ella and Connor (my cousins). Things can get kinda crazy when you get the whole clan together and we had a blast. Uncle Grady even fed me. That's big people. Except, I gave him a hard time when he tried to burp me. I didn't want to burp, I just wanted to keep eating and when he pulled the bottle away I would get sorting mad. You are probably thinking, "snorting mad, what the heck is that?". Well, when I get cryin' and am getting really mad, sometimes I start snorting when I try to catch my breath. Daddy thinks it's hilarious. I don't see the humor. So, since I was giving Grady such a hard time Daddy did the burping and then handed me back to Uncle Grady to eat. It worked out pretty well and next time I will try to be easier to make belch.

As you can see we have had a real busy weekend. We are super pooped and ready for bed. Keep on rockin'. We love you like crazy and will talk with you soon!!

Love, Lily
