Well she got her shoes and she could not be happier

Mims's First Christmas

Yes, this was Mims's first Christmas. In celebration of her first Christmas she wore her "Baby's first Christmas" onesie, while drinking from a "Baby's first Christmas" bottle with a "Baby's first Christmas" bib and burp cloth. She was not far from the tree that had several "Baby's first Christmas" ornaments. Her "Baby's first Christmas" blanket, scarf, mittens, gloves, socks, shoes, rattle, toboggan and picture frame were close by.

Santa came and left a slew of presents for Mims. You would have thought she would have been good all year long instead of just since mid October.

Here is Mims modeling her new hat. She will be sporting this during the Spring.

Here is Mims in her new seat. She likes to prop her pacifier on the arm rest and have her coffee and read the newspaper in it each morning.

Here is Mims, Aunt Hopeepopee and her cousin Meredith. It was not planned that Meredith's pants matched the chair, just a coincidence.

...and Mims with more Aunts. This is her Aunts Maggie and Laura.

Mims with Eli. This was right after Eli took Robert to the woodshed during what Robert thought was a friendly game of Wii Golf.

Here is Lottie opening up a portrait of Mims.

Here is Grand Dad helping her open a book she got for Christmas. Who knew that the dodo bird was on Noah's Ark?

Here is Presley trying to get in on the Christmas fun.

And finally Mims getting some Ole Miss pacifiers from Aunt Sissy. Mims needed these to watch the Cotton Bowl this Friday.

Christmas is around the corner

Hello from Oxford. I had a great weekend traveling all over Mississippi. I partied a little bit and saw some friends and a lot of family. I am pretty excited about Christmas. This will be my first one. Mom put this hat on me and told me to smile. We spend a good bit of time together and I have noticed if I do what she wants then most everyone is happier.

Here I am with my mom, dad, and my grandparents on my dad's side. We were visiting the Glover's and participating in my first topping of the tree.

My Great Grandmother Mama Coats and I got to see each other a good bit over the weekend too. We are planning on getting to know each other even better over Christmas.

Here I am with Khaki. She was showing me off to pretty much everybody at her party. I think they all came to see me.

I am not real sure who this guy was. He said he was a family friend but everyone I asked did not think he was invited. I thought I was the cutest one there but he tried to outdo me with his Christmas pants.

This photo is of Mims circa 2008. Historians believe this photo was taken before the battle of the golden egg in Oxford, MS in fall of 2008. It appears that Robert is trying to get her dressed for battle the game while watching ESPN Gameday. Mims does not seem real optimistic about her dad being able complete the job. Several eyewitnesses say that her mother, Leighton, had to come in and complete the task.

Visiting Neighbnors

We told Mims that she was going to get to go see her new neighbor Robert and she got a little excited.

When they met the played for a while and sort of wore Robert out. But Robert did win the "Who can hold their right hand up in the air the longest" contest. Congratulations to Robert on his accomplishments.

Mims update # 723

Mims went to get her shots today. She was pretty excited and ready for the experience. She got a good checkup and the shots were not near as painful looking as I thought. Mims took it pretty well. She is up to 11 lbs and 3 oz and is 24 inches long.

This picture is before the Dr visit

This picture is after the visit

This pictures shows her battle wounds

This is Mims hanging out under the tree...

and this is what happens when you ask a baby, a dog and Robert to pose for a Christmas picture.

Christmas is a coming

Christmas is right around the corner and Mims is pushing 2 months old. I wanted you to see how much she has grown. She is in the green.

Here is Mims in some Ole Miss/Christmas gear. She loves Christmas and the Rebels.

As you know we live in North Mississippi and when you live up North you just have to be prepared for Snow. We had about 6 inches in the Northeast corner of the Lawn and Plein Air. She really enjoyed it (not really, she slept most of the time did not even know there was snow).

When we heard that Santa was going to be in Taylor we were a little concerned that he would not be the real deal. Boy were we wrong. He was the real deal and great with Mims. He wanted me to tell everybody that the Atkins diet works well.

Here I am with Mims in the snow. I only got hit with one snowball and Mims made it out untouched.

Taylor Sip and See

Today Mims and I drove out to Taylor for a Sip and See party for all the friends of Taylor, Miss and the Plein Air Neighborhood to get a glimpse of Sweet Mims. She really preformed for everyone, smiling and melting hearts. This is a picture of all the hostesses, they made some yummy food and tasty drinks. We had a great time sipping and seeing!

Oh...the Holidays

Well Mims is now 5 for 6 since her birth and in the two games she has seen in person the combined score is 104 to 0.

Amy and Leighton posed for a picture in the grove. As you can see everyone was pretty excited about State's negative 52 rushing yards on the day.

Mark picked a great weekend to come see Mims. While in town he got to see the Rebels trounce (verb, to thrash or beat severely beat) the Bulldogs.

Meredith stopped by while in Oxford as well. This was Mims and Meredith's first meeting.

Even more exciting that the Egg Bowl was Mims getting to meet her cousins Meredith and Eli.
They had a great time and as you can tell from the pictures below all enjoyed the meeting.

Eli carried Mims in the house and I have never seem a dozen adults jump up from Thanksgiving dinner and try to rescue someone so quickly. He did a great job taking care of her.

Mims got hungry and Meredith was there in a pinch.

After eating then having some play time it was time for a nap. Mims napped and Meredith still played.

This is the first meeting.

Mims also helped her grandparents pick out a Christmas tree. This is Mims pointing out which tree she prefered to her Aunt Sissy.

Update: With todays thrashing of the LSU Tigers by the mighty Rebels Mims now has won 4 of the 5 games since her birth bringing her winning percentage to a staggering 80%. To bring that into perspective she has a larger winning percentage than any active coach with > 100 wins under their belt. More stats to come -- Leighton

All Smiles

Mims wanted to write the caption for this picture, so here it goes...

Mims just saved a lot of money on her car insuranace. Very exciting.

We were telling Mims about Christmas and she kept wanting to hear about the reindeer. Anyway, this is her best impression.
