An afternoon at the Park with Breahna

Before I begin I want to warn you this post has a ton of pictures in it!!  LOL
So last Friday was a pretty awful day at work, I'll just leave it at that, and it's so wonderful when the Lord sends just what you need JUST when you need it isn't it??  He's cool like that!! ;)
So just when I was about to unload on some coworkers and some students for that matter..... my sweet girlfriend Robin texted and asked me if I would like to go to the park with her and her precious little girl Breahna?  Ummmm seriously???  Like yes, a million times yes!!! This was just what my heart needed!!
So as soon as I let my class out, I ran and picked up Chloe at Day care just down the street, ran home and let the doggies out, and then we were off to the park!!!  This is such a cool park!!!  In fact this is the park where we will be having Chloe's first birthday party in a few short weeks!

Anyway, we started by putting the girls on the you can see Chloe was happy and giggling, and Miss Breahna was so tired she was kind of being lulled to sleep..... poor baby!!!  We tried everything to get her to smile..... nothing
then her mommy spun her swing to the side..... and there is a little one creeping out......
and then we got some smiles!!! She is sooo cute!!!
So after swinging for awhile, some other little ones wanted a turn, we took the girls to the slides, and Bre had a fit, she was loving those swings!!!  The next set of pictures are some of my favorites ever of Chloe and a friend.  I wish the sun was not so bright and masking the color.... but you can still see them okay.
So we put them on the top of the double slide, and neither one knew quite what to do!  Bre was a bit pensive and Chloe of course couldn't go down alone...
So I helped Chloe down and she smiled and thought it was so fun!!!
Then she was waiting for her friend to come down too, but Bre was still pensive and tired......
I lifted Chloe back up there and Chloe decided she was going to make friends whether Bre was or not!!!
Bre seemed kind of happy until Chloe touched her!!
I think this picture is hilarious!!!!  Chloe is so happy to touch another baby, but Bre is like "Dude don't touch me!"  LOL  But she didn't really say anything, and as Robin and I stood there and watched
Chloe began to blow Bre kisses......  be still my heart!!!!  My precious little girl
was blowing her friend kisses!!!!  If you look at the next 4 pictures kind of quickly you can see how fast my camera captured her blowing 2 kisses....mmmmmmwwwwwaaaaa! she says with each kiss.

Too stinkin cute!!!!

Then while I played with Bre on the slide for a minute, Robin was helping Chloe with her walking skills.  She is getting better and better!!!  My hope is that she will be walking by her 1st birthday, or better yet her 1 year photos.  But she probably wont, so we will have a bunch of sitting photos again!!  :)
Love this little girl!!!

I'm coming to you Momma!!!
After we left the park with 2 very hot and tired babies, we headed to Mexican for an early dinner.  It was so nice to just catch up with my precious friend whom I don't see nearly as much as we used to or I would like to.  And it's only going to get busier, because Robin is 10 weeks pregnant with her second little bean!!!  Her hubby is sure hoping for a boy this time, so we will all have to wait and see what God has planned!!!
Thank you Lord for the true companionship and love of good friends and for sending them just when I need them!!! 

11 months old already!!!!! (and 49 weeks if your counting)

Another month has passed us so quickly, it hardly even seems real that Chloe is already 11 months old!!!  But yesterday she was 11 months exactly-- as well as 49 weeks!!!  Her 1 year birthday has been a date that seemed so very far away, and now it is breathing down my neck.  I almost have a 1 year old!!!
She is soooooo busy now...... goodness gracious, this child can not hold still for a minute.  As you can see she wont even leave the dry erase board alone now for her weekly picture!!!  She is such an inquisitive little girl and I am happy about that- but wow does she keep me hopping!!!
Miss Priss was not feeling particularly well this past weekend.  So when we took these pictures yesterday she was not wanting to cooperate at all.  I absolutely adore this outfit, and I have been saving it to be one of the outfits she will be having her one year photos made in, so I may try to get some better pictures one day this week when she is her normal happy self.  And I can't hardly wait until her 1 yr professional pictures are made on Saturday Oct. 6th!!!
But we had a pretty low-key weekend, just enjoying spending time with her and Sweetness.  Life gets so busy during the week I feel like I don't see either one of them much at all.

Oh a small bit of good news:  Chloe's birth mom L said she would like to come to her 1st birthday party!!!  I am really happy about that!  Now whether she actually makes it or not we will have to see, but she said her boyfriend and his sister would like to come as well.  I would love to have that picture for Chloe as she grows into a young lady of her birth mom and me at her 1 year birthday.  Unfortunately we were not able to get any pictures together when she was born due to her parents, so this would be a wonderful beginning for her to build a relationship with Chloe.
I hope the Lord blesses you all with a great week and you begin to enjoy this cooler Fall weather that is now upon us!!!  I know we will be outside a lot more often ourselves!!!  Happy Fall Y'all!!!!
