March for Babies Walk

On Saturday, we participated in the March for Babies walk in loving memory of Caroline and Emma Basquill. My best friend from college, Brooke, and her husband, Justin, lost their twin girls at 20 1/2 weeks on January 22, 2008. Scott, Baby Brooke, Roxy, and I walked with 18 of our friends in their honor. We had a great day all together at the walk and then we had everyone over for lunch afterwards. As a team we raised $140o!! Thanks to all of you who contributed. We really appreciate it. These were the pins that Scott and I wore.

Big day in the Garrett household...Solid foods were introduced to baby B! Well...I should say rice cereal was introduced. So fun..she did first she was so confused but she slowly got the hang of it. Had a great day after that - went to the park with Laurie, Lillie, and Emilia- went to lunch with Nana- went to the park with Amy and Kaitlyn. Life is good...
She is loving Roxy these days. Anytime Roxy walks by her she giggles and/or smiles! I think she was trying to offer Roxy some cereal...
I was trying to be artistic with this photo at the park. Don't think it worked but love this picture of her anyway!
Miss Lillie going down the slide at the park!!

Blissful Day

Yesterday was one of those days when I couldn't wipe a smile off of my face. It was a perfect day here...SUNNY and WARM (I know, I couldn't believe it either), and got to spend time with some great friends. Brooke and I took a long walk with Lauren and her son Dalton at a park in between our houses. Then, Amy and Kaitlyn came over for dinner and some playtime. It was the 1st time I got to see my godbaby walking!! She is a pro already! Just chillin in the sun at the park...
Life doesn't get better than this?!!
Do we have to go home, Mom???
Kaitlyn kept feeding was too funny...little stinker!! :)
Look at me walking!!
Such a sweet face...
Brooke was fighting to go to bed!!
