We are Family…

Last Thursday, we were so excited to get to spend the day with my dad and sister, Maggie.  They picked us up early that morning and we headed to Tupelo for the day.  It was so much fun to be with them!!! 


Myla was beside herself to be with Maggie!!  Her new saying when she is having to be patient is “taking for too long”. So, all morning before they came to get us, she kept saying, “Papaw and Maggie are taking for too long to get here!!”  Needless to say, she was so excited to see them!


Selah was excited to see them once she realized that they weren’t taking her without me or that I wasn’t leaving her with them at the house!  She is a mommy’s baby big time!!  She finally relaxed, I think, once she realized I was going with her!  She did great considering we are normally “schedule” people who are home for nap time, etc.  She really enjoyed herself, for sure!  (Isn’t her hair wild??  She is sporting a baby mullet that we must take care of ASAP!)


When we got to Tupelo, we ran by the agency doing our homestudy so I could deliver something to them, and our social worker and his intern got to meet my dad and Maggie.  That was really neat since they pretty much know everything about them already!  After that, we went to Newk’s to eat lunch with my brother, Peyton.  Selah enjoyed the crackers while we waited on Pey Pey to get there!  She LOVES to eat!


Maggie and her sidekick for the day!


Deddy (yes, that is how we spell it!) or Papaw with Myla


Maggie caught this picture of me and Selah, which I think is pretty funny because she makes me crazy half of the time!  She is a very temperamental baby!  Obviously, she wasn’t wanting to cooperate for the picture!  I promise I’m not a mean mom…I was really just trying to get her to smile!


No smile, but at least she is looking!


Selah loved sitting in Pey Pey’s lap while we finished up lunch!  Pey Pey loves his girls!


I love this picture because it wasn’t until I was looking through all of the pictures later that I realized Selah had gotten a hold of a chip. HA!  She took the opportunity while nobody was looking for find something else to eat, as if she hadn’t had enough already!


After Newk’s, we went to the mall so the girls could play on the indoor playground.  Selah conked out from Newk’s to the mall, which is all of about 1 block, if that.  Poor baby was TIRED!


Maggie and Myla on the carousel!  Myla never wants to ride on an animal…she always wants to sit on the bench.


The girls loved playing on the playground in the mall.  If we lived in Tupelo, I think we would go there often!  Selah thought she was for sure a “big” kid, and she had a BLAST!!  Good thing she got that little power nap because she needed it as hard as she played!  They loved going down this slide together.  Myla was such a sweet big sister…always wanted Selah to sit in her lap to slide.


Sweet Myla in her pig tails!  We got her hair cut off tonight into a little bob, so when I was looking at these pictures, I couldn’t believe how long her hair really was!


Selah tried her best to climb up this slide over and over, but it was a little to slick!


She’s a persistent little thing!


She was SO happy on the playground!!  She didn’t want to leave when it was time to go.


I still can’t believe she is just walking everywhere!


When we got back to Oxford, Myla wanted to go to Holli’s.  When Deddy, Macy and Maggie came last year, they took Myla to Holli’s, so as soon as we started heading home from Tupelo, she asked if we could go!  She doesn’t forget anything!  Here she is holing the “Grace’s Goody” named after her…the “Myla Mini Loaf”. 


Selah has one too…the “Selah Spectacular”!!


I had to show you a picture of Maggie’s shoes that she had on!  She painted an old pair of her TOMS, and I thought they were so cute!!  I told her she needs to contact TOMS and sell her designs and become a millionaire (and I’ll get half the profit)!  HA!  She is so talented and artsy!

Thank you, Papaw and Maggie, for a FUN, FUN, FUN day!!  We love you!
