November Is Over?!?

November 30, 2010

What a crazy busy month this has been. I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks that November completely flew by... Mike and I always (half) joke about how in the Fall we never see each other and our house is always a complete wreck. I get so busy with photography and now, with Mike's new job, he is super busy too. About a month ago he started a new job as the Senior Planner over video games for Walmart Stores. I don't know if you know this, but he's a pretty big deal. (I think so at least- if you ask him though, he'll be modest). Anyway, they brought him in during the busiest time of the year and needless to say he's working longer hours and not seeing his girls quite as much :( but we are so proud of him and so grateful that he works so hard for us! Anyway, getting back to my original point, November has come and gone and I was a blog slacker! Here's a brief run down of the kickoff month to the Holiday season.

We started it off with Emily's 4 month well-baby visit. She is doing so well and is such a happy baby. During this visit she was due for another round of immunizations. No fun at all. We always go to doctor's appointments as a family (it's an excuse to spend an extra hour of the day together) well when Emily is ready for her shots I always volunteer to take Kylie out into the waiting room and Daddy stays with Emily. I still just can't bear to listen to my little baby cry, even though the whole time I'm waiting in the other room I am closely listening for her. (I don't think I will ever be able to sit there while someone pokes her.) Mike knows that the only reason I want to be the one to take Kylie out is because I don't want to see Em cry but he pretends not to know any different. He's such a nice boy.

Isn't she such an angel baby? She really is.
 At 4 months old Emily was:
Height- 24 inches long
Weight- 15 pounds 3.5 ounces
And the way her percentiles go, 
she has an above average head circumference (75th), average height (50th), 
and way above average weight (90th). 
She's a healthy girl!

Aside from working, we didn't do too much in November... We took our family pictures at the beginning of the month. They turned out cute but I am waiting to reveal those until our holiday cards are out in the mail. They're a super secret surprise... Maybe the next post will be about those...

We had a really great Thanksgiving with some of our good friends, The Owens. And guess who didn't take a single picture? Me! The food was wonderful though, and the company was even better. It was funny, while I was setting the last dish on the table, before we sat down to eat our giant feast, I thought about how strange it was to be the parents that cooked this Thanksgiving dinner for our children and friends. It's still weird to me that I'm a grown-up I guess, but so much fun all at the same time.

{By the way, these pictures are all from a birthday party that we were able to attend for one of my clients. I have amazing clients who have turned into great friends! I was asked to take pictures at the party and my cute little family was invited to come play and enjoy cupcakes. It was such a fun afternoon!}

Well I guess that's pretty much November in a nutshell... See, I told you, not much happened.... But I will try to keep up with our Holiday festivities a little better in December. It is the most wonderful time of the year after all.

Oh, and one more "by the way," this post is dedicated to my Inky Grandma and her dear friend, Billie. I got a phone call from Inky Gma tonight. She just wanted to make sure everything was okay because I hadn't updated the blog in a long time :) I promise I'll do better Grandma! LOVE YOU!!!

I was just thinking the other day -- wasn't it just Halloween? And now I'm baking and trimming the tree? What happened to November?

I love Em's little jowls. Fat baby faces are so cute!
