5 months...

Well, I'm finally updating this...as 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!

You know what. When I click on a picture, and then 'back' to return to the blog, it doesn't work. What's up with that?? I liked the pictures. Hope all is well.

Love
Stephen
