updates

our house has been struck. we have the cold! I had it last week, and now poor sweet BellaRose has it now. she sees the red suction ball coming her way and she starts to cry. i don't blame her. i would hate to have my nose suctioned like that. i wish i knew a better way, but until she learns how to blow her nose the red suction ball it will be. i don't think that she really feels all that bad, but her poor nose won't stop running. i am sure it is terribly hard for her to breath. this too shall pass though. i am looking forward to getting out of the house today. i feel like i have been here non stop lately. BellaRose and i hope to finish up our Christmas shopping. can you believe it is a week and a day away. have i told you time flies? i am sure i have mentioned that before once or twice. speaking of, BellaRose will be 7 months old on saturday. she is doing wonderful besides the cold. we have really tried to stick with a routine and she seems to do really well with that. she is a homebody much like myself. so we have stayed put for all of our sanity, not traveled but only for day trips. that has made our life so much easier. i am not sure when we will be able to travel again but for the time being this is just fine. she is eating like a champ. you can give this girl anything and she loves it! what a blessing that has been. right now she is completely in love with her Earth's Best Teething Biscuits. you give her one of those and you better watch your hand because those 2 little teeth will get you. we have given her all sorts of "solids" and the whole time she is eating she is saying "mmmmm". last night i gave her some avacado and she LOVED it. she still only has 2 teeth. i was thinking she was getting more, but she is sticking with those 2 right now. Worth has been working on some "frustration" crawling techniques with her. i am not sure how well those are going. he puts something out of reach for her and tries to get her frustrated enough where she will want to get it. i just feel sorry for her. my poor little baby on her belly crying. oh it is a sight. i have to tell you i am just fine with her not being mobile. we finally are able to just set her down and she actually can entertain herself. it has been heavenly. well i just thought i would update you on what Sweetie Baby has been doing lately since we haven't really told you. enjoy this wonderful time of year and remember why it is so important. a lot of times that just simply gets lost in all the things we HAVE to day. take a break and rejoice!

don't you just love her radio flyer push wagon. it is a big hit. this is her early Christmas present from my Dad and Charlotte. thank you!

I LOVE THE WAGON! I wanted that one, too, but Curt wanted the race car :) Boys.

Woman...those photos of that girl are unbelievable. Get over here already and take some for me!

And we love those teething biscuits, too. Earth's makes a lot of great stuff, don't they?

we miss you too! i hate that we are not going to see you for Christmas. we will see each other A LOT when you come next year! yes it does appear that her hair is turning blonde. when she was born it was so dark and it seems to get lighter and lighter everyday.

In my family, the red suction ball was blue and it was lovingly referred to as "The Booger Snatcher".

Hope the stuffy/snotties are gone in time for Christmas! I'm off to do *more* last minute shopping--when exactly will that last minute come? Who knows. I can't help myself :)

BellaRose is still the cutest! What a lovely tongue she has too!

Can't wait to see you!

Oh that stinks that she has the cold now, I'm sorry you guys have been so sick, let me know if you need anything

Oh Dom...the "nose vacuum" is awful...I have to use that terminology with Tripp because he's gotten to an age where sometimes it seems he just wants to rest his finger up his nose for awhile. It sure does the trick (most of the time) but with Jack I just feel so bad. He's like BR...when he sees it coming he fights it.

I love Rainy in that one picture with Bella Rose in her wagon. She looks so pitiful, like someone has really forgotten to throw her ball today.
You should give a synopsis about our time in music land this morning, not sure how to exactly put it into words.
