Here's what's been going on with The Hargett's this past month:
The first week of October my mom, Stella and I went to southern California to go visit relatives and have them all meet Stella. We were there for ten days and had a lot of fun! The first weekend we were there my mom went to Carlsbad with her friends to have a girls weekend while Stella and I hung out with my Auntie Bev and Uncle Marty. During that time Stella and I went to my cousin Mario's baby shower. He and his wife are having a baby boy the first part of November. We also went to my little cousin Aiden's hocky game and had a fun birthday dinner for my Uncle Marty at Outback Steakhouse. During the week we went to my grandma and grandpa's house and spent time with them playing card games of Casino and Cribbage. We also went to Carlsbad to go to my Uncle Marty's dad's funeral. It was a beautiful service, it was a Catholic service so I got to experience a Caltholic Mass. Then we stayed at my grandparents the rest of the week, went to Balboa beach and just relaxed from a busy weekend! My family sure enjoyed baby Stella, I think my grandma enjoyed her the best! She loved holding her and spending time with her. We had a great vacation in California, but we are happy to be home.
Stella is two months-
My baby girl turned two months old on October 24th. I can't believe how big she is getting. She had her two month appointment on the 26th and it went great! She now weighs 10 lbs 11.5 oz and is very healthy. She had to get some vaccinations: three shots and an oral vaccination. She screamed with the shots, but calmed down right after. I was proud of her. She has changed so much since she was born: she is smiling a lot now and cooing, she loves to play with her tongue, she's discovered her hands and occasionally will find her thumb with her mouth when she's sleeping. I think she's gonna be a thumb sucker! She loves to try and stand in my lap, she is very alert and loves to sit up and watch everything. I love this little girl more and more everyday. She is definitely a mama's girl, but she sure has her daddy wrapped around her little finger.
We didn't do too much this Halloween. I decided not to dress her up because we weren't going anywhere for Halloween so I didn't want to spend the money on one. I did get her a cute Halloween outfit though and her Aunt Marie got her another cute Halloween outfit that she wore this month as well. We did go to our Ward Halloween Party this past Friday and then on Saturday we just stayed home and watched Scream and passed out Halloween candy to all the trick-or-treaters. It was a fun and relaxing Halloween!
Today was Stella's blessing and it went great! I was nervous she was going to cry while Troy was blessing her because she's been kinda a mama's girl the past two weeks and would fuss and cry whenever Troy would hold her. She did wonderful though...it was like she knew she needed to stay calm. Troy blessed her with strength and health and that she would be safe and find righteous friends and a righteous husband to take her to the temple. Troy did so great and I was proud of him. Afterward we had a get together at our house for lunch. We had all our family and friends over and it was a lot of fun!
