More portraits...

Sweet baby girl

The kids with Granny

I think this is so funny-sweet little Maggie loving her GG and pulling Will's hair!

Will and his Daddy

Love those big blue eyes!

Sweet feet

Maggie and her Daddy

As you might have guessed by now, I'm a little obsessed with having pictures taken. This time we went to the Ft. Worth Botanic Gardens for some family pics, Daddy/Kiddo pics since he had to miss the last two "sessions" and some of the kids with my Granny. Considering Will and I had some serious allergy issues last week, they turned out better than I had expected.

Maggie has two teeth now, and she likes to use them. She's still not officially crawling yet, but I really don't know how! She and Will are getting cuter both individually and together everyday. Will is enjoying school and Maggie and I are enjoying our new girl time!

Playgroup and Turning 29!

Maggie in her seat in bible class. She loves Ms. Toni!

What a contrast to the first picture-this was her first experience with blueberries. So far we haven't found a food she doesn't like.

Our hottub cover kind of sinks in and collects water when it rains-Will didn't take long to find this puddle one night. It's amazing how fast a 2 year old can find trouble.

We've started doing bedtime stories together-Will loves reading to Maggie.

A picture from playgroup-Allie Grace, Carter, Will, and Ethan. I got my camera out late and Caroline had already made it back inside.

It's been another busy week in the Mittig household. Will had his first full week of school last week and we did playgroup at our house on Friday. There were 4 two year olds, 1 three year old, a one month old and a six month old. The weekend flew by, as usual, and my birthday week started Monday morning when my new maid started! Talk about the gift that keeps on giving-thanks Eric! Eric took today off and booked me a spa day-it was so nice! Will picked out the biggest red velvet cake at Red Oven because it had sprinkles, so we'll be eating that forever. Maggie took two "steps" in crawling today, but the video cam wasn't out so I'm not really counting that.

Thanks for checking in on us.

Maggie's SIX months and Grandparent's Day

Will on the slide at the carnival


Will is so obsessed with slides lately-as soon as he got to the bottom, he was running back toward the ladder to go again!

Not the greatest picture, but by the time I got Will to sit down for a minute he was tired and fussy and not in the mood for picture time. We had so much fun with Granny/GG at the Grandparent's Day Carnival!

I think Maggie has such an adorable smile-she's such a happy girl!

She's SO close to crawling-she's on all fours and rocking, but she gets everywhere she needs to be by rolling and scooting (mostly backward) so we may have a little longer.

Will "working" on the computer like Mommy and Daddy.

I think we're still a year away from qualifying for a t-ball team, but we're working on it!

We literally had to pull him out of this bouncy house.

I'm a little late on wishing a Happy Grandparent's Day and a little early on wishing Maggie a happy 6 month birthday, but I'm pretty close on both. Will and Maggie are blessed with four wonderful grandparents and 2 great grandparents!

Maggie is changing everyday-her first tooth just broke through (finally) and from the looks of her puffy gums, there may be more to come soon. I don't know where the last 6 months have gone, but then I don't remember ever NOT having 2 children either! Since Will is in preschool 2 days a week now, Maggie and I are looking forward to some good girl time together!

Will had his first full day of preschool today and he did great! I was worried about him taking a nap, but he did! I'm guessing he's going to crash pretty early tonight though because he's used to 2-3 hour naps and I think he slept for about an hour.

Labor Day Weekend

Will and Ethan after their first day of school this morning!

My new way of getting Will interested in the potty. George wears a diaper and sleeps in a baby bed (the bassinet) but Puppy wears Thomas undies and gets to do lots of big boy things like sit on the potty-Will's been taking him pretty often, I'm just hoping he'll decide to do it himself one of these times!

Maggie got her new big girl car seat this weekend. She was loving it!

She loved looking out the window-she sat in the middle in her carrier, but now she's got a window seat! By the way, she is still rear facing-I was sitting back there between the kids for her first ride to take pictures, so it looks like she's forward facing!

Will and Carter on the top bunk-we went to see Carter's new brother Vance and the boys had a blast together.

Will and Ruby, Stephanie's little girl. We got to see them for lunch on their shopping weekend-I didn't get any great shots because Will fell asleep soon after this picture-I think it's funny that Ruby is looking at me and Will is looking at Stephanie.

Still trying to get a good picture of Will holding Maggie. He's doing it more often now, but when he sees that camera come out...

We had a busy weekend, but it was so much fun. It was exciting for Eric and I because college football kicked off, but after Michigan forgot to show up and was upset by Appalachian State (who?), the season came to an ubrupt end for Eric.

I've been trying for the last couple of weeks to get Will back on a "school schedule" since he's been waking up around 9:30 all summer, so I've been moving his wake up time up every week with a goal time of 8:15. He's having a little trouble adjusting-when we met Stephanie and her family for lunch on Saturday he ended up falling asleep at the table.

We spent the holiday with my family at Scott's new house. Will loves swimming SO much and Maggie loved watching all the action. By the time she had napped and eaten and was ready to get her suit on to join the fun, the thunder rolled in and we had to call it a day.

We had a lot of growing up this week-Maggie got her new car seat, Will graduated to a new class at church, and he starts preschool this week.
