Lovin' Litchfield

Last week we found a Toddler bed on Craigslist and decided to go for it. Noa's definitely not ready for it yet, but it was a good deal and it will allow me to start working on the bedding before Ruthie comes. In the meantime though, we might as well have bought a jungle jim for her - she climbs all over that thing all day long. In. Out. In. Out. Giggle. Fall. Cry. Giggle. In. Out. In. Out... Our days go something like that. I just hope we can get her to sleep in it when it's actually time to!

By the way... What the heck is going on with her hair lately? Our little raggamuffin...

We had the opportunity earlier this week to go to Litchfield (about 2 hours north of Charleston) for a day and a half conference. Matt, Chris, and Russ went to the conference all day and Ashley, Shelley, and myself stayed with our kids in a 3 bedroom condo. It was so nice to have some time together even though a lot of it was craziness with the kids. We hung out by the pool a little bit, talked and laughed a lot, and tried our best to organize everyone's naps so our kid wouldn't wake another kid up. Seems like we could never quite get that down, but it was still worth it - especially when the kids were down for the night and we could finally have some grown-up time! Anyway... it was fun and we should definitely do it again!

Tub time for Lilly and Noa

Here's the difference between being in the 10th percentile (Lilly), and being in the 97th percentile (ah-hem... Noa). :)

Noa and Eli sharing an afternoon snack. Yummy watermelon! Noa's hair's struggling again... greased down from sunscreen. Oh well... she's still the cutest girl I've ever seen!

I LOVE Litchfield!! It's soooo relaxing. Anyways, I'm glad ya'll got to go! The kids all look SO cute! And- adult time - after the kids go to bed, c'mon- that is priceless!! So.... I can't wait to see what kind of linens you're making Ruthie Joy! What color/theme will you be doing?
PS. I am a little obsessed with Craigslist. I'm glad you got the toddler bed off there- yay for saving money!
