Meggie tells Darcy about shopping

Look what we found in the pumpkin patch!!

I swear, I take 30 pictures and this is the best one...

(it's not easy propping up a baby on pumpkins, you know.)

Darcy's new puppy toy from Grandma MaeMae

Reading her new monkey book

Enjoying her first real bath?

Logan missed Darcy so much he jumped in the car when we got home

and of course, Daddy missed her too.

Darcy and I had a lovely time visiting Charlotte and some family last week. Darcy Jean got to meet Great Grandma Jean for the first time, and also Auntie Meghan and Uncle-Elect Chad. It was Darcy's first real road trip, and she did pretty well. I went in the middle of the week, (what else am I doing - not working!?!) so Tony stayed in Nashville to work. He'll come with us over Thanksgiving.

Grandma Maeve & Great Grandma Jean got to see what fun it is to put Darcy to bed at night. (Hint - not very!) But Grandma Maeve came up with a dare-I-say-it brilliant(!) routine that includes a screamingly fun and relaxing bath, pjs, a nice long feeding, and falling asleep with barely a peep. I don't think the bath is really relaxing her, given the sheer volume of her screams, but maybe it's wearing her out enough that she gives up and falls asleep. I have never seen a baby fight sleep so much. But regardless, it has been working this whole week - asleep around 9 or 10, and not a sound until 3 or 4. That's pretty good for a 5 week old I think - 5 or 6 hours straight. We'll take it at this point.
