Happy Thanksgiving

Magnolia had a very busy week this week.  She went to the doctor on Monday for shots and a check up.  She is one healthy girl!  She weighs 17.8 lbs and is 26 inches long.  She was such a big girl getting her shots.  She also had her first Thanksgiving today.  She met another little boy at Thanksgiving that was just a few days younger than her.  She was very interested in him and liked to hug him.  These pictures are her in her Thanksgiving outfit.

Visiting Daddy At Work

Magnolia and I took a trip to visit David at his office the other day.  She wore her pink "Dr. Magnolia" scrubs so she could be just like her daddy!  Her gums look great and she should be getting her first tooth anytime!

Cute as a button!

Here are some pictures that we have taken of Magnolia that I thought were pretty darn cute.  She is doing great and continues to love her cereal and has even expanded to sweet potatoes!  Her latest tricks have been throwing toys and splashing in the water.  We took her swimming last night, which she adored and then signed her up for swimming lessons that will start in January.  You may wonder what that thing is on top of her head in the second picture... it's a bow!  She has about 5 strands of hair that are actually long enough to put a bow in.  Somehow I am raising a girly girl.  I think David loves having a girl and is bringing out the pink and bows in all of us!

We took the plunge into food this week!  As you can see by the first two pictures Magnolia was not thrilled over the idea of food in her mouth.  Then she realized that she is actually getting full again and loves it!  The bottom two pictures are the next day and she is so happy about eating.  What a big girl she is!

David's parents were here this past week.  Magnolia had a great time showing them all of her new tricks.  We spent a few days in northern Idaho poking around and enjoying the last bit of fall color.  Magnolia is becoming so photogenic!  She loves to have her picture taken!

Happy Halloween

Magnolia had a wonderful first Halloween.  She charmed everyone at our "Orange Dinner" with her bumble bee costume. She was very excited to be a bee just like her big sister Ziggy!  We did a new kind of trick-or-treating and brought cookies to our neighbors instead of getting candy from them!  It was so warm out that Magnolia got hot in her costume! I dont ever remember a Halloween when I was a kid that I got hot in my costume. She was such a good sport and looked absolutely adorable! What a great first Halloween!
