Has it really been 3 months????

That's the question I've been asking myself the past couple of days. It is hard to believe that we brought Meredith home 3 months ago, man how time flies.
So you may be asking what's new with the Seales family. Well, I went back to work in the office full time on July 4th, it sucks by the way, I never knew how nice it was to work in my PJ's. Todd is gearing up for his busy season, State Fair, Quartet Convention, Rodeo, & Farm Machinery Show. Busy busy busy, oh well we like the paycheck he brings home.
Meredith started going to the daycare last week and it has been challenging, but each day is getting better. She hasn't cried when we dropped her off the last few days. She is now crawling and boy o boy can she MOVE! She can also pull herself up to stand, so we know it will only be a matter of time before she is off and running. She can say dada, mama, dora, pizza, who is it, and dog.

Well that's all I have for now, it's almost time to quit for the day.

I promise new pictures very soon!!

Days 2 and 3 at the daycare...

Day two went pretty good. She didn't cry when Todd dropped her off, but when she saw me there to pick her up she started crying. Not sure if she just realized we were gone or that she didn't want to leave?
She also came home on day 2 with a cold. I aggravated Todd all night counting the times Meredith sneezed. I got up to 25 and quit. I don't know if Meredith had sneezed 25 times since we brought her home.
Needless to say the sleep was in limited supply that night because her nose was stuffy and she couldn't breath when she laid down.

Day 3 Meredith got up with a nose running like a faucet. We were afraid that they wouldn't let her stay if they saw she was sick, but they did. I handed her off to Ms. Liz and she cried and reached for me. But as soon as I walked away she was fine. I picked her up during nap time and she was the only one not napping. She still couldn't breath out of her nose when she laid down.
We got home and took some medicine and she went to bed at 7:30 and slept off and on for the rest of the night.

Todd dropped her off today and he said she cried when he handed her over but was fine after he left her sight.

So we'll see how she feels today when I go pick her up.....stay tuned....

My first day at daycare....

Today was Meredith's first day at daycare. Todd and I both went to drop her off and as soon as we got to her room Ms. Liz took her and Meredith turned to me and Todd and gave us the cheesy face, as to say you can leave now.

That was 7:45 am.

Todd and I headed off to work just waiting for our cell phones to ring being the daycare telling us to come and get her. But as we wait the call never came. I finally couldn't wait any longer and at 9:53am I called to check on her. The director said that she hadn't cried at all and she ran to the room to look in on her and she just started crying because someone took her block.

At 1:00pm I leave work so that I can pick up Meredith sparing her from a full day her first day. I got to the daycare and Meredith is asleep on her cot. Ms. Liz asked me to come back at 2 because that is when nap time is over. So off I head to the house to load the dishwasher and eat some lunch.

At 2:00pm I returned and there she sat all smiles and ready for snack time.

Ms. Liz said she ate really good and had some difficulty with the sippy cups. We knew this would be a problem because Meredith only likes cups with straws. So I've been given special permission to bring Meredith's sippy cup from home. But other than that everything went great. Now as for tomorrow, it all my be different when she realizes that we are leaving her again. We'll just have to wait and see.


Here is Meredith getting ready for her first day of daycare. Thanks Aunt Lib for this really cute outfit.

We didn't win but we sure had fun!!!!

This past week was the Taylor County Fair, my home town. Saturday night was the Miss & Mr Toddler pageant. Aunt Becky, great aunt Lib, and I have been running all over Louisville, E-town, and Bowling Green looking for an outfit to wear. We finally decided on a very cute capri outfit and off we went to the pageant.


Meredith was contestant #10, even though we didn't win we still had a great time, beside she is our little princess anyway!





Mom are you sure this bow matches my outfit?




Aunt Becky is it our turn yet?

Uncle Brian are you ready to go to the Reds game?
