St. Louis and BIG news

Last weekend we took a quick trip down to St. Louis for my cousin and his wife's wedding reception. We didn't see the arch or even go into the city, but we did do some pretty great things!

Goober tried out a baby rocking chair at Cracker Barrel and loved it.

She also slid down the slide and learned how to climb up it.

We gave our child a sugar high by giving her a lollipop, ice cream, and a piece of cake at the reception (don't worry, not all at the same time)

But the big news is... our little Goobie has enough hair for pigtails!!! Yup, she's adorable.

Our next blog post will probably be in IOWA!!! This summer really has flown by.


  1. You cheat! I was frantically reading and thinking, "oh, she must be pregnant again!" But, I am super excited that Goobie has pigtails. What a cutie!!! Any secrets on getting kiddos to sprout hair? Hyrum's still as white and as [nearly] bald as can be.

  2. :) Hee hee, I had to do it! I always try to look for ways to make my life sound more... exciting! And Hyrum's little bald head is to die for adorable!

  3. Wow! The summer really does fly by doesn't it?! When do you officially move? We move in just under 4 weeks and I can't wait! I bet you're feeling the same =)

  4. Aww, for us pigtails are exciting!! Thanks for the update and can't wait to read more. Miss y'all.

  5. We move in on August 1st! Crazy! We are so excited and started to get a little nervous -- new place and new people you know!

  6. So Cute! Do you have enough hair accessories for her? What a silly question. Of COURSE you don't. :)

  7. I too thought a pregnancy announcement was being made. This is "tortes, torts, and toddlers", not toddler after all. So you should just have another kid soon to fit the title.

    I heard your family is moving, by the way. That must be kind of sad, no more trips home to Chicago. I am sure it will be fun to start new adventures in the big IA though!
