Pictures from the day

Here are the pics from the day. We did a mile walk around the park and there were booths set up handing out candy. My arms are VERY sore today for carrying Baylee, her diaper bag, and my 20 pound purse. Had I known it was layed out that way I would have taken her stroller. GEESH!RJ is a FEROCIOUS Lion!See the red stain around her lips? The first booth that we came to was passing out slushes. She loved it.
Best Buds!After scoring LOADS of candy for the Lion and Piglet we let them play on the playground before leaving. Poor Ray Ray got his work out juggling both kiddos on the slide. After the little while of playing we headed back to the house.

Dancing Piglet!

video
Today Baylee and I headed to LaVergne to hang out with The Russell's. Daddy is in Louisiana to see the LSU v. Georgia game. Alison found out that a park in her town hosts a Trick or Treat event. B and I headed to LaVergne to tag along. I will post pictures later but I am VERY tired and wanted to post this tonight so Daddy could see. As we were walking through the path we came across a football field and they had music playing over the loud speaker. Well little Piglet took it upon herself to entertain EVERYONE that was near us. I laughed SO hard...as you will hear on the video. I was even given a flyer and business card from a woman who owns a talent agency and told me to call her. NO LIE!

15 month stats...

Baylee turned 15 months on October 4 but due to her severe ear infection and the high fever it caused we decided to hold off on all of the shots until she was well. Monday morning she went to see her pediatrician. Here are her stats... Weight: 21 lbs 9 oz (25th percentile) Height: 30 1/4 inches (35th percentile) Head: 18 3/4 inches (88th percentile)...still has the large noggin She received 3 shots and goes back on November 1st for her flu shot. She was given a clear bill of health and we were told her ears looked great. Now, Fast forward ONE day... Yesterday (Tuesday) I go to pick her up from daycare at 5:00. She was lying on the floor on a pillow and her teacher was rubbing her back. She was awake but her eyes were SO weak. Normally when I pick her up she runs as fast as her little legs will go to get to me but not yesterday. She just looked up at me with her weak eyes and I knew she wasn't well. By 6:15 she was down for the night with no supper in her tummy. She wouldn't eat a thing. Around 9:45 I was getting ready for bed and I heard her coughing in her monitor and she started crying. When I walked into her room I leaned over in her crib to feel for her pacy and I put my hands in vomit. :( From that point on she was up and down all night and she probably threw up a total of 4-5 times. I called her daycare this morning because I was worried that it was something that she had eaten. One of the teachers assured me that there was a stomach bug going around and she was convinced that Baylee had caught it. I called her doctor's office and the nurse told me that if it is indeed a stomach virus there is nothing that they can do. It just has to run it's course. Luck for me Carl's grandmaw kept her this morning until she had to go in to work at noon and my boss let me leave at 11:00 so grandmaw could head to work. Baylee is asleep now and has been for over 2 hours. I am hoping that this is indeed just a 24 hour thing and she will be back to her wild self by tomorrow morning.

Pumpkin Patch 08

Saturday Alison and I took the kids to the Pumpkin Patch while the boys stayed behind to watch football...so what else is new? I have uploaded TONS of pics to this post but this is only a small number amount compared to all that I took that day. They had SO many different kids activities. Our first stop was the little pay area for the younger kids. RJ had just woken up so he was still in his "zombie" mode. I tried and tried to get some good shots of the two of them together with the pumpkins. Unfortunately there were WAY too many screaming kids to keep their attention away from the camera. I love her expression in this next one. If only we could get rid of that passy rash once and for all! RJ did not like Baylee putting her hands on his steering wheel! YES they are that age already! We came across some kind of apple tree and their were apples EVERYWHERE. I say "some kind of apple tree" because the apples are all bumpy and knotted. Alison told me more than twice the name and I have yet again forgotten. The kids kept calling them "balls"....close enough. RJ has quite an arm on him and kept HEAVING them. We didn't mind as long as we weren't the ones in his path ;PRight before we left we came across a wagon that I think belongs to the farm. B and RJ loved riding in it and I got some sweet pictures. Not much longer and baby Averly will be here. I can't WAIT!B and I.......and you can see she is STILL holding her "balls"We had SUCH a fun time and I know they got much more enjoyment out of it this year than last.
