Alara 2 months and all smiles

At her two month check up:
Weight 10.0 lb- 5%
23 inches long- 50% 

This is a wonderful little baby to have around. She likes to coo and smile at you and we often have little baby "conversations" with her. Alara's delicate features contrast with my last chubby cherub and she is a light weight compared to my other children at two months who were all at least 12 lb. She is less of a "chunkin" and more of a flower petal. She will even sleep for 6 hours at a time which I consider a success at 2 months. The only sad thing about her is that we haven't been able to share her with more of our loved ones because we know you would enjoy having her around as much as we do.

Thanksgiving Visitors

Here are my real Thanksgiving turkeys enjoying a 5 hour long game (!) of monopoly with Dad/Uncle Zach. I believe Scarlett came off victorious with the help of the FUncle Zach.

Warning! Warning! Holding a cute, snugly, sleeping baby may make you drowsy. Grandpa enjoyed a lot of Alara time while on his visit to Colorado. 

The children also had a fun time playing in the snow, building forts, eating lots of food, going to the children's museum and just being kids. Holidays are always happier with visitors.

November Birthday Boys

Mimi's knitting needles hard at work again! Is it a sheep? A llama? A shllama? We don't know, but it sure is cute.

Mac's Lego part complete with a Lego cake, games, and door decorations. Not to mention the 16 or so children, craziest of which were my children of course. We ate pizza, opened lots of Lego themed gifts and lets just say when the parents all came on time to pick up their children, I was grateful. 

You knew he was getting these things at some point, right? 

Lincoln doesn't really like cake so I thought I would try something he might enjoy little better. The doughnut tower was a big hit. 

Love my November Birthday buddies.
