Meredith had her first haircut on Saturday. She only had a tiny trim because she has too much hair to try to cut it all at once. Not that we want her to have it short or anything. I didn't do bangs because that is just more upkeep and I know I cannot trim them myself. That is just not a skill I have. Enjoy the photos...
I took these last week during all the rain and I am just now getting around to posting them. I am so glad the rain is gone (for now anyway). Our days have been better this week now that we can go outdoors.
Last Saturday Bill and I took the girls to Washington Farms. It was our 2nd annual trip and one we will continue to take as long as the girls like it.
Meredith had even more fun this year than last. She showed no reservations in climbing up the stairs to the big slide and wanted to do it over and over again. She and Bill picked out our family pumpkins, she got one for each of us, plus a big one to carve. Tinsley did very well for only being three weeks old. Here are some pictures from the day.
I am adjusting to life as a mother of two, which isn't so bad, except it is hard taking them out right now. I have managed to go to the grocery store twice, but that is it. My fear is that if we go to the park I won't be able to play with Meredith and if we go to the library, Tinsley will break down. All this wouldn't be so bad if it would just stop raining. All the wet has kept Meredith inside a lot, which I hate. So here are a few pictures from this week. Meredith helped me make a cake. She liked the batter, but won't eat the cake, which cracks me up.
That evening we needed to bathe the girls so we started with Tinsley and it became a family affair. Meredith helped keep her warm by pouring water on her and Norton was there for moral support and to drink up any water he could.
I can't reiterate enough how good Meredith is at being a big sister. All she wants to do is help and she has only had a few tantrums when I can't get to her when I am feeding Tinsley. I hope this continues!
Bill and I are the proud parents of two girls. Meredith is our first and Tinsley was born in September. I work as the Coordinator of Student Life at Gainesville State College-Oconee Campus and Bill is currently Mr. Mom as his position at his job was eliminated. I am growing to love where we live more and more as we make our house more "ours" (Bill owned it before we married). We will have to move eventually as the family expands but it doesn't seem quite as necessary as it used to.
