A Big Weekend for Little Suzie

We celebrated Suzie's first Halloween on Friday. Of course, since she can't go out into large groups of people yet, we celebrated Halloween in the comfort of our own home. But Mema got Suzie a Raggedy Ann costume, and although it was made for newborns, it was way too big on our little girl. She still looked so cute in it.

Then on Saturday night, Suzie attended her very first Texas Tech football party! This was her first outing other than our daily walks and regular appointments. Our friends Bryan and Lindsay Payne threw a great party at Chad and Carly Brannon's house to watch the big game where No. 7 Tech played No. 1 Texas. It was a very exciting game and even better because Tech won! Lindsay threw a great party with a tortilla throwing contest, a Texas helmet pinata, and Suzie won the most spirited outfit award. She did great on her first outing and only cried a few times when the cheering was especially loud:)


Other than that, Suzie is doing very well and enjoying her life at home. She is eating a ton and growing bigger by the day. Here are a few more pictures of our Suzie-Q.


Next week is a busy week for us. On Tuesday we go to the eye doctor, Wednesday to the Neurosurgeon and Thursday back to the pediatrician. We'll let you know how everything goes!

what a sweet raggedy ann!! i was going to do that this year for my costume at our fall festival, but totally procrastinated and didn't order it in time. how exciting to get to take suzie out more and more!

so, i totally opened that party group photo and stalked the people for a minute. the name chad brannon caught my attention, and imagine my surprise when i saw his face. i went to high school with chad and my best friend (at the time) dated him our junior year/his senior year! small world, huh?!
