Give Mommy Kisses

The other day we were playing with Anna on our bed and I was making kissing noises at her and telling her "give mommy kisses". She would lean towards me with her mouth open to kiss me and she did this several times. Of course, I had to get the camera to document her latest trick. Watch the video to see what happened when I tried to get kisses while the camera was rolling.

Texas Pride

We were so sad to see our beloved Horns lose the National Championship after Colt McCoy was injured on the first drive of the game. My heart welled up with pride and my eyes with tears during Colt's interview after the game. As always, he showed great character and acknowledged the greatest influence in his life. Here is an interesting article on this year's team. I'm hoping he will return to UT one day to coach with one of my other favorite former Longhorn quarterbacks, Major Applewhite. We are looking forward to next season when Garrett Gilbert will lead the team!

On a more positive note, Anna and Luke looked really cute for the game and the UT men's basketball team is ranked #2 and undefeated. I would gladly settle for a basketball championship this year!

8 Months!

Another month has flown by and Anna continues to grow and change. Her hair decided to suddenly start growing (although still no teeth), so now I can adorn her head with cute little barrettes. It's funny because when I found out I was having a girl, I swore she wouldn't wear big bows in her hair and poofy skirts and pink all the time. I've come to discover the reason those things are so popular for little baby girls is because they are so cute...and I cannot resist a few of these items for her wardrobe. The other day I even found myself searching for "twirl skirts" on ebay! Here she is in all her 8 month old girly splendor:
Here are just a few more cute pics from the last month:

Gotta have the monthly pic of her in the recliner with her monkey.

Hanging out with Noah and Emery Kate at church.

She pulls herself up to stand and play at this cube that she loves.
