Bug Bites!

Since we've had such great weather here the last few days, Noa and I decided to go to James Island County Park and take a walk. It was wonderful! She LOVED being outside and loved being able to look around at everything. I convinced Russ to come with us after dinner for another walk. The 2nd one didn't go so well. She definitely did not want to be in the stroller and let us know as soon as we strapped her in. So 10 minutes into the hour long walk Russ picked her up and walked with her the rest of the way, which, if you've ever held Noa can get REALLY heavy. Then came the mosquitos. Blah! They were everywhere! I didn't even see one earlier in the day, but they had suddenly come out and were feasting on Noa. She has bites on her legs, her fingers, her forehead, and you can see how bad this one is on her eye. :( Poor thing. It doesn't seem to bother her though. I just know it took about 3 weeks for the last bug bite to disappear, so I'm hoping this one goes away sooner.

On a brighter note, Noa received a sweet package in the mail from Char the other day! Yay!! Thank you Jim & Char!! Actually, Mommy liked the cute outfits that were inside and Noa Jane liked eating the paper. To each his own. :)

And here's Noa in the John Deere outfit Abby got for her - hat and all! I think she looks soooo funny! I couldn't stop laughing, and I had to take a pic!

Awww, Noa! Eli had a similar eye this week too, but it was swollen on top. We miss you, Sweet Girl!

Ohhhh, poor Baby Girl! That looks really nasty. We'll hope they disappear as quickly as they came!
You are most welcome for the gift. We think of you often, and are looking forward to seeing you during the Holidays!
Love and Prayers,

Awwwww -- she looks like Joshua did with the bug bites! Poor baby.

Hey -- pin dryer sheets all over her little outfit the next time you go out. I think it helped Joshua not get eaten alive. Just something I picked up from Georgia. : )

Hope you guys are well. Miss you. Want to hear about Voddie!

Poor baby! That happens to Jazmin's eyes when she gets mosquito bites, too. I hate mosquitos!
