Pumpkin Farm

Today we ventured out to Gentry's Farm in Franklin. It was a beautiful day, a little warm, but nice. We went to Gentry's last fall with E when she was almost 3 months old and decided we'd make it a yearly tradition. This year was much more fun since E was walking around and really looking at things. She liked the animals of course and thought the pumpkins were pretty neat.

Almost 15 months old!

Playing in the corn

Of course she had to eat some! She quickly realized it was not the kind she was used to...

How tall this fall?

Playing in the barn

She liked the tractors too. Pops would be proud except that she is holding a green tractor! Wrong color!

She was pooped!

Nashville Zoo

We were absolutely out of our mind and went to the zoo on Labor Day. It was HOT, crowded and miserable! We learned our lesson, but to our credit, we had been trying to go for three days before that and just could not make it work. E did seem to enjoy it. She liked the meerkats and flamingos best. We will be going back once the weather stays cool!

Probably trying to figure out a way around the bars.

Observing the meerkats

I thought this guy was hilarious. He was just hanging out (literally) watching everyone watching him.


On August 17th, after many, many ear infections, Elliotte had tubes put in her ears. I was very excited for the procedure b/c I knew it would help her feel better. I imagined a fall and winter without an ear infection every two weeks and was on board immediately. Dr Viner at Baptist did the surgery. He's wonderful, and you get to avoid the craziness of Vandy and go to Baptist. I knew Dr. Viner from one of my former jobs, so he was an easy pick. Elliotte loved him too!

Our initial visit to Dr. Viner.

I think she was pleased she wasn't at the Peds office!

Surgery Day at Baptist Surgicare. She got a stuffed frog to distract her. E did really well, and after the anesthesia wore off, it was like nothing had ever happened! The surgery took about 7 minutes!

My future is so bright I need shades!
