Mimi's First Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving day with my parents in Corinth and Friday with the Darbys in Germantown, and Mimi got more attention than Suri Cruise and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt combined! Our main objective for the holiday was not to see who could eat the most turkey but to compete to see who could get Mimi to smile or squeal . . . and she did plenty of both!

JR is crazy about his cousin Mimi! He wanted to hold her and kiss her all day!

Ruthie was even invited to the Nixon Thanksgiving festivities, but as you can tell, she got herself into a little trouble . . .

How do I fix my blog? It's tacky because I did something wrong when I changed the background.

Pepperoni Pizza Head

So Clint has given our child a new name -- Pepperoni Pizza Head. We were eating pizza one night while Mimi was chilling in her swing, and Mimi smiled every time we said Pepperoni Pizza! Now Clint calls her Pepperoni Pizza Head, and she thinks it's so funny!

This is Mimi's new coat -- it has swallowed her head!!
Mimi and Spike are becoming friends -- he knows she will be sharing Cheerios with him before too long!

Mimi has an adorable little cousin, Oriana, who was born 5 weeks before Mimi. They haven't been able to meet because Oriana lives in California (my brother and his wife are finishing school at UC Davis). Right now, Oriana and her mom Melina are in Peru visiting Melina's family, BUT they will be coming to Tennessee for Christmas!! We can't wait to meet this sweet little bundle, and I know my brother is ready to have them home again!
Oriana was only a few weeks old in this photo

Now she is much bigger!

Halloween and my new trick

Mimi is now 14 weeks old, and she has finally mastered rolling over from her belly to her back! The day before I started back to work she rolled over three times in a row, but didn't do it again for about a week. Now I try to put her on her belly to play and she immediately flips over on her back!

On her belly . . .

. . . almost over . . .

. . . now on her back!

Mimi was a sweet little ladybug for Halloween

She's still not happy about the car seat!
