We have been busy being parents of a newborn. Alden is now 8 weeks old. Isn't he cute? HeeHee... I know I am biased but... One little dimple cheeked grin from this guy and I am smiling too. He has been doing great at night, about 10-6am... until this weekend. He woke up at 3 and 3:45 a couple times and I was like "Whoa, dude... once you've been to 6am, you don't go back." So, today it was 5am... a tad better, but the other two were 7 and 8 am babies by this point so I am a little perplexed by this matter. I am a woman who likes her sleep you know. Other than that, his dry scalp is the only matter of concern. Come on, I am a hair dresser... it is very important to me for my children to have a healthy, cradle crap free head. And no, that is not a typo, I call it cradle crap. I do a little baby oil/lotion scalp treatment to get rid of it, but old Alden is trying to keep his... again... perplexing me. And the "little" stinker weighed in at 14lbs 8oz. at his 2 month check up. He is a hoss I tell ya.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving. We went to Micah's sister's and had a lovely meal whilst children played and screamed and had fun. And Mel, Emerson bit his cousin on the butt. Yes, the butt... as she was climbing up the bed ladder... can you muzzle kids??? LOL. I did NOT shop on Friday. Lincoln and I ran a few errands Saturday and were lucky enough to park next to an entire discarded turkey. Yes, you are reading that right. It was there in the Staples parking lot, all over with its gross looking bones and leftover innerds and such. Really, if you are sleeping out so early that you had to bring your turkey dinner with you, at least clean it up. And hello??? What one earth was so great Staples anyway??? People are nuts I tell ya'.
Here is the Thanksgiving Mini book I made. I just have to get the photos in it now. I love how it came out. I channeled my inner Beth to make a mini in time, and my inner Vee to make the various sized pages. I had to take pictures because my scanner is not working yet. I also think I will add some ribbon to the jump rings ala Ronda. :)
I'll post some pics when it is done and has pictures too.
Now I must go get started on putting away frozen milk and hopefully getting my Christmas mini going... thanks to Beth I have a great little book to use, and I can't wait to get started. I think by virtue of the fact that Beth, the undisputed mini book Queen has touched said book, it should come out wonderfully... :)
ETA: Ok friends, please e-mail me. In the computer switch my addresses are not there in my address book anymore... I am sure there is a way to find them, but this non techno-savvy gal cannot figure it out... Just put "Here's my address you dummy Jude" in the subject line :)
