Rebekah's First Game

After so much tailgating, we thought Rebekah would enjoy finally going to a game. She watches football all the time on television, starts singing "Black & Gold to the Super Bowl" every time she sees a fleur-de-lis, and yells "Touchdown!" anytime a team scores and the fans start cheering.

An 11:30 AM game in October was the perfect opportunity. Rebekah got all dressed up...

Hung out with her friends Meredith and Drew...

Danced and cheered for the Band, the football players, and of course USM's mascot Seymour...

And lasted barely into the second quarter before she passed out.

More Tailgaiting


Rebekah prepared for her long day of football by getting in the faces of the (former) Ole Miss mascot and the Golden Eagle and pumping them up.

She didn't know this young lady, but she repeatedly attempted to hop into her familiar-looking wagon.

She helped herself into whatever ice chest she could get into,

but was only interested in cooling herself off.

Rebekah hung out with her friend Olivia, 

encouraging her as they crawled along together.

Catalog Shopping

If you take your eye off of Rebekah for a minute, she'll do something to entertain you. That is becoming more true as she can now reach the edge of the counter tops, climb to get things she wants, and talk in pretty descriptive phrases.

One morning last month, we turn around for a few seconds and she has put on a hat we had sitting around, managed to get her pacifier, and started browsing a book catalog looking for Christmas presents, we suppose.

Zoo Boo

Since James had to work at the Hattiesburg Zoo's annual Zoo Boo Fundraiser for the Hattiesburg Zoological Society (he's on their board), Kristie and Rebekah got to dress up three nights last week in her costume and go play the games, ride the train & carousel, and walk around the zoo.

Rebekah wouldn't allow us to buy her any costume other than Thomas once she'd spotted it... no flowers or ladybugs or princesses for this little girl. We already have problems with people who don't know her going through gender confusion with her, so you can only imagine how many "He's so cute" comments we heard.

It got to the point Sunday night that Rebekah remembered which inflatable animal or character we were about to encounter around the next corner.

 Maybe next year she'll be a feminine little flower again, like last year.
