Onslow County Fair

A week ago, we went to our local county fair. It was very small but it didn't matter to the kids. Nathaniel had a blast and it was Amelia's first fair experience. Amelia also had her first taste of lollipop, thanks to Hubs.


We purchased the unlimited ride bracelet for Nathaniel. It was $16 and we definitely got our money's worth. This boy looooves these rides.


This "grumpy" photo of Amelia cracks me up. She wasn't really pouting--just very serious and taking in all her surroundings. But the cherry on the top is perfect placement of the cup. I didn't notice it until I was going through the pictures later. I thought it was very ironic and hilarious! And see the photo I took immediately after? Back to my sweet, silly, happy baby.


Hubby won this huge Spider Monkey by knocking all four blocks at the same time with a baseball. He had three chances but I guess he only needed one. Nathaniel was ecstatic with his prize and I am both impressed and annoyed. It's huge!


This fair also had the best chili cheese fries I have ever had. Yum! And speaking of food, it has been a while since we had fair food that we went a little overboard. We knew we were going to regret it and boy we surely did: we were so sick that evening and the next! And Amelia loved sitting on the grass and wanted to eat it, too! She was very upset whenever we stopped her. Such a silly girl.


 It was a great day and I'm always for spending time with my favorite people.

Eight Months Old


Amelia turned eight months old yesterday! She is growing up so fast and even said her first word! Just like her older brother, it was "Dada." At first it was just babbling but she is definitely using it now correctly. She has since added "Mama" to her vocabulary, too. Nathaniel is working hard on teaching her how to say "Kuya" but we told him it may be awhile before she can say that.

Amelia has not figured out crawling yet. When I place her on her belly, she still pushes herself backwards or goes around in circles. She tries to go to crawling position when sitting up but hasn't quite figured out how to move her other leg so it is not stuck underneath her. Amelia also still only has two bottom teeth. Sometimes I wish that is all she will have because they are so stinkin' cute when they stick out when she smiles.

If you noticed in the photo with her stuffed bunny, Amelia's hand is in her mouth. She does that when she is feeling an extreme of emotion: happy, excited, sad, scared, shy, etc. I actually find it super adorable! In the photo, she didn't know what to think about her Bunny's texture so she was a little unsure of it all. See her leaning away from it? Babies are so silly sometimes.

Amelia was sick again this month. Less than a week since Nathaniel went back to school and we were all hit with a nasty virus. Thankfully, Amelia avoided oral steroids this time. I started giving her the inhalant steroids daily and the albuterol treatments as needed as soon as I noticed she was coming down with something. That seemed to do the trick and she didn't get nearly as sick as did back in July.

As long as Amelia is not sick, she is a great eater. Sweet potatoes mixed with rice cereal is her favorite. And when she is sick, she prefers crackers and SkyFlakes (Filipino saltine crackers) are her absolute favorite. And yes, we are still co-sleeping and she is still waking up a few times to eat.

Smiles for Kuya


There are so many things I love about these photos! (The nasty yellowish-green tint isn't one of them though. Boo.) I love that they get along and play so well together. Of course they don't always share but 90% of the time, they are always laughing together. And my son taking a photo? What's not to love about that? ;) That is a boy after my own heart. And the last picture is mine and my son's favorite and we still laugh and talk about it.
