Long time coming....
Many apologies for the lack of blogging. We have no excuses. We're tired and joyful, achy and blessed. Chasing Chloe around day and night is a wonderful, exhausting experience. She is babbling and crawling. She can recognize animals and make the appropriate noises, point to all her body parts, and say lots of words: mama, dada, bawl (ball), uish (juice), peas (please), no, yesh (yes), boo (book), boo (boo), bubawl (bubble), rock-rock (as she is rocking in her chair), moh (more), uh(up), dawh (dog), Desda (Dixon), owha (flower), tee (tree), birr (bird). She's amazingly bright, adorable and loving.
Despite all of these things, mommy and daddy occasionally need a break. I pulled something off that I have been thinking of for a long time. I arranged babysitters, time off work for me and Jared, and obtained hotel reservations and restaurant recommendations and swept Jared away to Asheville with me for the weekend. He was floored, and excited. We had a great time, and were able to regroup for the fall season. If you've never been to Asheville, I highly recommend it. We'd move there in a heartbeat if given the chance. Enjoy pics below. We'll try to start posting again on a more regular basis.
Look! We're both dressed and not covered with various bits of yogurt and nuggets and other toddler food.
Happy, relaxed Amanda
Happy, relaxed Jared.
Hot dogs for lunch. Jared's dream come true.
In the hot dog restaurant. Jared thought this was cool.
Yummy yummy cupcakes. Best of my life.
Who knew Batman lived off the Blue Ridge Parkway?
