The Coleman Update!

Marlie had her first picnic in the park. It was nice and relaxing. I love being outdoors, especially in the fall. Fall is by far, my most favorite season. I love the colorful leaves, the weather and Mums are my favorite. There are so many fun fall festivals that I can take Miss Marlie and of course Halloween! It is my second favorite holiday after Christmas. Just wait till you see her Halloween costume.

I don't want Marlie to grow up because she is too adorable and cute but I kinda do at the same time. Is that bad? I have so much planned for her. I can't wait, I mean, can't wait, to take her to Disney World!! I want to enroll her in baby swimming lessons and dance classes and storytime at Barnes and Noble. There is so much but I know she isn't ready for all that yet. So I guess I will just be forced to cuddle with her and hang out. :) Speaking of cuddling, it is raining today. I loooove rainy days and snowstorms. It makes your house so cozy and cuddling is much better. Marlie is sleeping on me as we speak.

Opal decided that she wanted to get her diaper changed. She is so funny! She is my other baby. She loves to take naps everytime Marlie does. She insists on sleeping on top of her. Don't worry, I watch Marlie!
My cousin Joanne had the best idea ever and told me about Granny Showers! I have never heard of them before. I thought it would be so much fun so we did it! My Mom has helped out so much. She definitely deserved one. She was completely surprised and confused at first. It  We dressed her up like a Granny and played this fun guess what candy Marlie pooped out game.We had 7 diapers with different chocolate candies melted inside. It looked gross! Everybody had to guess what type of poo (Candy) it was. Carolyn (the one in the picture) won the prize. It was a blast!
Last but not least. Our recent family photo in the park.

The Jersey Shore!!

Our first family vacation down the shore. For all my western friends, we say down the shore, not down to the shore. Nick makes fun of me for this but this is how a true New Jerseyian says it. I'm sure Nick will say it like this real soon.
We had a really nice time. We hung out by the pool, walked the board walks, played some arcade games and had a nice breakfast on the boardwalk. The ocean water was nice and warm so Marlie enjoyed it. I was too afraid to go in any deeper and make Marlie shark dinner so we just dipped our feet. She wasn't however too fond of the wind and the sand. She kept rubbing her feet together to try to get the sand off. I'm excited to make this trip a family tradition every summer like it was for me. Good memories.

She is now teething. My little baby is growing up so fast. She has a little one trying to break through on the bottom right in the middle. She's not handling it too well. Poor thing. She just went to the doctors and is now 4 1/2 months and weighs 11 lbs. 12 oz. and 24 1/2 inches long. Her cheeks are getting bigger by the second. She looks like a little chipmunk getting ready for the winter. hehe. I love you Marlie!

I think she was over the wind at this point.

Hanging out at the pool.

What up yo?

Her classic serious face.
She smiles a lot but never wants to do it for the camera.
