Weekend in Nashville

This weekend we went to Nashville for my sweet friend Meghann's gorgeous wedding at the Governer's Club Mansion. Meg is a good friend from college, and I was so excited when she asked Mimi to be a flower girl. I must point out that Mimi couldn't even hold her head up well when Meghann asked, so she really took a gamble on Mimi even being able to walk down the aisle. When it was showtime for Mimi, Clint dropped her at the back at the back and Miss Priss ran to me down the aisle swinging her short little arms as fast as she could!Do you know The Itsy Bitsy Spider . . . or maybe If You're Happy and You Know It?This is Meghann and, well, not her husband. I didn't have a good pic of her and Jesse, but I do have one of her and her new brother-in-law Charles, who is the singer in Lady Antebellum. I know I'm a goober, but he was such a super nice guy and was so sweet to Mimi. I think this makes him blog worthy.
Mimi climbed all the way up the mansion steps . . . several times. Thanks, Daddy, for letting her do whatever she wants!
We were able to stay with my sister, and Mimi loves playing in her cousin Coco's room. She was busting a move in this photo.And I had to take a photo of her festive Halloween outfit.

Another month slips by . . .

. . . and Mimi keeps growing and growing. Of course, I knew this would happen, and I do want this to happen but not so quickly. Just yesterday Clint said, "I want her to stay this size and keep doing the silly things she does right now." I think I said the same thing last month, and the month before, and a few months before that. The truth is that each month gets better and better, but it's so hard for me to believe that life could get any better than it is right now.
Since we're officially out of the baby stage and into being a toddler, Mimi has to do toddler things like riding on a multi-colored Dora at the farm toy. This noisy little car/scooter is a constant fixture in our den along with the classic red Cozy Coupe. My parents brought some little pumpkins for our Little Pumpkin the last time they visited. Mimi thought the smallest one was her new baby doll, and she carried it around all afternoon . . . until she threw it on the floor and broke its stem.

Mimi keeps things in her hands all the time -- Little People, a plastic cell phone, puzzle pieces, the remote control, and the small measuring spoons and whisk she's holding in the photo.

Since Fall is finally here and our house has been a little cool at night, Mimi now has her first official pair of "slippers." They're big and fuzzy and pink, and she loves stomping around and chasing the dogs in them. (Check out that belly!)

I haven't taken the time to download a video in a while, so here we go. She's not doing any amazing tricks, but is just being her normal, silly self.
