5 months...

Well, I'm finally updating we head out for Christmas! Yea, Ry has 2 weeks off!! We are super-excited! Nate has also put on over 2 pounds in the past month, so we've "graduated" from the lactation consultant. Feeding every 2 1/2 hours (and sometime just 2), pumping, and supplementing with formula have taken most of my time.

Seems like I haven't posted since Halloween (oh my goodness), and narrowed down the photos to the top 22! Let's see if I can put 'em in order!

Nate, on occasion, has rolled over. I caught it too!

We headed to Brenham to visit tia Lorena in November. She lives in Houston, so we like to meet midway. This has been my longest solo trip with Nate and he did great!

For thanksgiving we hosted my parents, Ry's parents, my sister and 2 of my cousins. The house was full, and we had a wonderful time.

We even had a nice, cold day that we got to wear our snow suit (although the "snow" just stuck to the roof)

Papa had a big birthday this month - the big 60! Here we are with him and great-uncle Charlie

We had fun at my brother's graduation from NMSU. Nate's first trip out of state (and we drove!)

And Nate's new hobby, frowning

And some photos in front of our Christmas tree

Nate and our next door neighbor Cal. He's just a few weeks older than Nate...what buds they will be!

We'll see if I can post over the holidays! From our family to yours - Merry Christmas and to a mighty fine 2009!

a great gift...

Ry posted on his blog what he wants to give Nate...looks good to us! Check it out here!


I feel like such a slacker! Seems like ages since I've posted! This past month has been crazy - trying to get Nate some weight on, having the family for Thanksgiving, prepping for Christmas and heading to Waco and New Mexico the last couple weekends...

Guess I have an excuse...will post some pics on my cutie soon - he's gained over 2 lbs in the past month! Changes abound!

Texas weather!

It's crazy - it was in the 80's yesterday and now I have snow on my roof! Oh that Texas weather!

Working on Nate's 5 month post! Hopefully will get that done tonight...

Keep warm!
