lunch date x 2

two lunch dates in one week....i don't hate it. :)

did you know wednesday was national taco day?! so naturally, we had to partake. thanks fuzzy's for delicious dollar tacos!
on thursday we had a little picnic at the ranching heritage center....for all you locals who haven't been, go! and if you ever have people visit from out of town, go! i absolutely love it! you can check out their website and upcoming fun events here
^^^mc loves a good windmill...or in his words, "win-wheel". 
^^^mc may have accidentally head-butted this steer. the steer won.^^^
 ^^^hi, sweet, sleepy aplin^^^
i don't know about you, but our life needs more lunch dates and more picnics.

happy weekend! hope it's full of fresh-crisp autumn air, some sort of pumpkin goodness and a red raider WIN!

baby girl is 2 months

sweet aplin turned 2 months on friday. 
i was very anxious for her 2 month check up to see how much she had grown.
being born 11 days early she was smaller than mclain when he was born (5 days late).
but she loves to eat and since i'm her only food source i am very proud to announce that she is growing.

weight: 12lbs 11oz -- 90%
height/length: 22.8in. -- 75%
head circumference:  15in. -- 50%

she surpassed her brother in every area.

if we're being honest, i'm kind of obsessed with her. she is so sweet and loves to be cuddled. i'm looking forward to all the fun we're going to have and all the trouble we're going to get into together. 

the other day matt mentioned he didn't want to wear a pair of socks because they were bad luck (he's the superstitious type) and i asked him why they were bad luck. he said he wore them the day aplin was born.  now, i know that sounds terrible but it is actually very sweet.  there were several scares on her birthday...even the doctors and nurses let down their guard and had us fearing the worst. 
she is an absolute blessing. a gift. and we are so very grateful she is ours and that she is strong and healthy.

she is perfect.
i am loving all her squishy rolls--more to snuggle. 

hugs and kisses~m, s, mc, a, b, b, m, t, m, b, m and bc
