Happy Halloween Eve! We decided to dress the kid up in her costume and get some pictures in case we have meltdown tomorrow. Juliette is the cutest mouse you will ever see! We are soooo excited for tomorrow! Probably more than Juliette is! I'm sure you will all agree that she's the cutest thing there ever was.
It's been a year since I started JulietteMargot.com...craziness! I started the blog as a way to document my journey to motherhood for our relatives that live 800+ miles away...so they could join us on the ride. It has become so much more. THIS is Juliette's baby book. How cool is that! When she's old enough and reads allllll these posts, she'll get to see how cool her mom & dad are. Or she'll think we're nuts. She'll know how much she is loved. The past few years have been the most wonderful years yet. We got engaged, got married and had a baby (the best honeymoon souvenir!) without wasting any time. And I can honestly say, that I wouldn't change one single moment. As I sit here and look back, I realize how damn lucky I am! We are so blessed. I have a hot husband, two crazy dogs, and the World's Cutest Little Girl.
I look forward to writing/blogging the rest of our story for many years to come. Keep on reading...and thank you for all of your sweet comments & support. Love you all!
We had a great trip to visit the family in Kentucky! This was Juliette's second trip to Kentucky. Fall is my favorite time there! The leaves had not really started changing yet but the weather was gorgeous!
We first visited Grams in Northern Kentucky. Grams babysat while Uncle Chris, Josh & I went to the Bengals Game. Josh's Cousin Bill & his wife Jen joined us for tailgating.
Juliette got to spend some time with her Great Grandma Betty...whom we are now calling "Honey Grams." Honey Grams sure is something else!
And of course, Uncle Chris was excited to hold Juliette!
My absolute FAVE part of our trip...was going to Huber's Orchard & Winery in Starlight, Indiana. That place ia amazeballs! We're talking my kind of place! I could go back every day. It's a real pumpkin patch. We're talking PICK YOUR OWN PUMPKIN OFF THE VINE! They also let you pick your own apples, berries, tomatoes, you name it! I could go on forever about this place. Josh had gone there many times as a kid so he wasn't nearly as impressed as myself. And poor Juliette slept through most of it. I guess we will just need to go back...every Fall!
Their Spiced Apple wine was delish!
My first freshly picked pumpkin!
Along with our two pumpkins, we picked up some of their pumpkin bread. I made the most delicious French toast out of it...someone needs to send us another loaf!
Aunt Jenny took us to a beautiful park in Louisville called Cherokee Park. It was a gorgeous fall morning! We walked the 2.5 mile scenic loop. Juliette enjoyed the ride...Olive slept most of the way.
We also went to the University of Louisville vs. Rutgers game. Juliette and Baby Cousin Olive joined in on the tailgating fun and then Granny took them home while we went to the game.
After a fun-filled week, it was time to pack up and head back to Florida.
Thanks for a fun week Kentucky! Time to catch up on some sleep!
My Dearest Cheekie,
I didn't think it was possible...but you get cuter EVERY month! You are eating like a champ! You love just about everything you try. Let's hope this continues! You are sweet as can be! We love you more than you'll ever know...even though we will try our best to cover you in hugs & kisses every day!
This adorable outfit was another one of mine from when I was a little girl...thanks for saving it Grams!
Happy 8 Months Juliette Margot!
Juliette finally got to meet Cousin Olive today! They are destined to be best buddies! Aren't they cute!?!?!!!
Juliette's first tooth magically appeared today! Getting a picture has proven to be quite the challenge as you'll see below. Thankfully, she has been easy going so far as this first tooth has come through!
There's about 30 pictures of her mouth...and not one good shot of this mysterious new tooth. It IS in there!
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jen and I am the proud Momma of Juliette Margot! We are so blessed to have a healthy and happy baby girl. Check back often and watch as Juliette grows...you never know what great adventures are ahead of us!
