Weekend Update

We have had some fun these past few weekends. Lula and I made a quick weekend trip to Clarksville, Tennessee. I didn't take into account that Lula isn't napping for long periods of time during the day anymore, so the 4.5 hour trip from ATL to TN was a bit of a stretch. (It took us 7 hours to get to Marietta). Sooooo, we won't be taking long car rides without Zach. Ever. Again. It was so worth it though!

Then, Grant and Lucy came for a visit! Lots of relaxing, eating, and movie-watching. We did managed to visit Aiken, South Carolina with Meg and Joe, too. It was a cute town, and I'd like to go back this Spring. I've been blessed to see some wonderful friends this month. Our small group starts up soon, and I've tried out a "mom group," so here's to hoping we can make some good friends here too!

Towards the end of the trip from TN, we were both in tears

Our old place!!

Of course, my only picture from our weekend in TN... but Lu got to meet Laura, FINALLY!

In Aiken.

Lula's four month photo. She's getting so big!

Sure enough, Lula rolled over a couple weeks ago. I would have missed it while I was washing dishes, but Zach called me over and we both watched her roll over for the first time. I didn't get it on video until the next morning though. It is so exciting to watch her grow and learn new things! However, since she had her last round of shots, she hasn't been rolling as much. Probably because she figured out she doesn't like being on her stomach, so why work so hard to get there?
(Hopefully this video works... I have tried a million times. If not, I'll try again in the next post!)

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone's day is full of chocolate, flowers, and love. Zach and I celebrated yesterday by filing our taxes, and then went out to Five Guys. I love a good cheeseburger! (Remember when I was vegan? Such good times.)

Anyways, yesterday Lula had her 4 month doctor's appointment. She weighs 13 lbs 12 oz, and is 24.75 inches long. She is in the 75th percentile... she's a great eater!

My mom's friend sent Lu an adorable tutu, so we took a quick photo shoot. (I am no photographer, just snapping with the iPhone.) She wasn't interested in looking at me though... having too much fun feeling the tulle.

Then we just played on the floor a little while. (Please take note of the DOUBLE ARMPIT! I can't handle it. So. Cute.)

I have a dirty kitchen, laundry to fold, and a shower to take. Naturally, I decided to start a blog instead. "Sous le Bois" is the French translation of our last name. My mom likes to say "Lula Sous le Bois" in a sing-song voice.... It's just so darn catchy! Anyways, with friends and family spread out across the states, I thought it might be a good way to send out Lula updates and stay connected with everyone.

So without further ado, here is a fun family pic. Zach, Lula, and I went to Georgia last weekend for a wedding. Zach's cousin, Mollie, was a beautiful bride and it was a wonderful ceremony and reception.  We had so much fun!

Running errands earlier this week, I was at the grocery store and the lady at the register and I were talking. She says something along the lines of, "I can always tell the moms of the small babies because they look so tired. Tired?" Me: "Oh yea, so so tired." I wasn't tired. I just didn't have any make-up on, running around town in yoga pants and a baseball hat - proud of myself for accomplishing a task. But, her explanation sounded better. So, I looked like a slob, but Lu looked super cute!

Lula is about to start rolling over, and I just know she is going to figure it out while I am not looking... Until next time!
