Lyla's First Packer Game

You saw it right. Lyla went to her very first Green Bay Packer Game this weekend. We went with Grandpa and Grandma Knox. When we got to the game and were walking in, we were stopped by security asking if we had a ticket for Lyla. So apparently for NFL games, EVERYONE needs a ticket. Even if they are 5 months old sitting on your lap. Needless to say, we were not very happy walking all around the stadium to buy a $59 ticket for Lyla. At least we saved $12 b/c they allowed us to buy a cheaper ticket! We already took Lyla to a Milwaukee Brewers game so we didn't think twice on taking her to this game. I guess we know now!

Go Pack Go!

Lyla did great the whole game. She cheered and even watched what was going on on the field. The giveaway was yellow pom poms so it was perfect for her to cheer with.

Lyla also had her 4 month appointment this week. She weighs 14 lbs 8 oz and is 25 inches long. She again is in the 75% for both weight and height! What a healthy girl!

I'm now done posting for the day. 2 posts in one day is good for me!

Have a great week!

Party at the Brown's

I think as the summer goes, we get busier and busier! Hopefully that will be dying down soon but I doubt it! I guess that's what happens when we typically have busy summers and now we add a little one to the mix.

Lyla just got baptised on August 8th. It was a hot, muggy day so we ended up with everyone inside for lunch. We don't have a big house so everyone was pretty close and comfy! Thank you for everyone that came. It made the day very special. Lyla was great during the whole ceremony. She made cute noices and entertained everyone the whole time. She was the star of the show!

Lyla's christening gown came from their wedding dress. My Aunt Phyllis and mom made the dress and Lyla was the second one to wear it. It's a beautiful dress and I'm so glad Lyla was able to wear it!

Then on Sunday, August 9th my mom and I threw my cousin Jody her baby shower. Anne Heather was born in June and we decided to throw her shower after she was born so everyone could meet her. We had a great turn out and it was a good time! I was so happy to finally meet Anne as well.

The hostesses
After our busy weekend, Matt and I (along with Lyla) looked at a house for the 2nd time. We were not necessarily looking to move but Matt came across it and we had to go see it. We fell in love with it and decided to extend an offer. They countered and we accepted on Friday! Now everything is contingent on us selling our house so we have to wait patiently and hope someone is interested. We have 90 days so cross your fingers for us! Now on top of our day-to-day activities, we have to get our house ready for showings. I hope we are as lucky as my friends Holly and Brian in IN. They had 2 people look at their house and the first person bought it. I know I'm not that luckly but one can hope!
