bumbo and Christmas.

eliza loves to sit and stand so she's gotten a bit of use out of her bumbo. she's also tried out the johnny jump up, but she mostly uses it as a chew toy.

i haven't uploaded those videos yet, but i'm sure they'll be coming.

we had a great Christmas (or six) up in indiana. eliza came back with a good loot, and a radio flyer wagon to haul it in! the girls had fun riding around in enola's heavy duty wagon.

it was so great to see everyone. just wish it wasn't all a blur! seems that way with little ones around.
i have a ton of pics posted of fb, but here are a few...

3 month pictures.

added to the post below.

we finished Christmas shopping yesterday at the outlets. in about 5 days we'll be back on the road headed north.

the backseat will be filled with maggs, eliza and jude. (in that order) hopefully they all stay on their own sides. (i'm watching you magglio!)

speaking of magglio. he turns 7 this week. cannot believe it!

i'll have to post some pics of him.

happy day!

eliza is three months old today!

we had a spontaneous trip to indiana. james' dad collapsed at work. went to the hospital and they found a blockage. they put a stent in and it seemed to do the trick.

since we left in a hurry i forgot to grab her the blanket and her 3 month onesie. so the pictures will have to wait until we get back home.

things she likes...
sitting up on your lap.
standing up.
not being cradled like a baby.
the moby, but only if her feet are sticking out.
staring at Christmas lights.
being held facing out.
playing on the floor.
looking at herself in the mirror.

this has been a great month. we finally got the hang of nursing. both of us are enjoying it a whole lot more. she's also taken a bottle a few times. she is all smiles, and has been such a joy. she had a couple naps in her crib. that was big! she's still sleeping great at night. she does pretty well in church. she's only had to be taken out once or twice. this month her first round of shots, went to indiana for the second time, went to her first wedding, celebrated her first thanksgiving, got a Christmas tree, hung out in the bumbo, went to indiana for the third time, started blowing bubbles and imitating actions, tried desperately to roll over...

yea, yea.

i know, it's been 2 weeks.

i don't have much time to stop and write. what time i do get i'm trying to keep up with my actual pen and paper journal. it's been going for almost 15 years strong, and i don't want to miss out now.

eliza still won't nap, unless she's being held so i don't have many chances. i've gotten pretty good at updating facebooks pictures one handed though!

we can't complain about the naps though because for the last month she's slept 9 hours, nursed and slept for another 3 or 4 hours.

james thinks i should take advantage of that early morning nap and have "me time." i told him i do, i just spend it sleeping!

speaking of "me time" i got 4 1/2 hours of it last night. james kept her for the first time. she took a bottle with no problem and he had her bed. (after a few phone calls of questions. the first coming when i was just a couple miles down the road!)

over the last few weeks we spent some time in indiana for my best friend's wedding. she married my oldest brother. it's such a blessing!

eliza and i had our first flight together and i was too stressed forgot to take any pictures. she did okay once she settled in, but we got stuck in traffic, was sent to the wrong terminal and walked back and forth, and did not meet very many nice airport employees.

we picked up our Christmas tree last week. got that all decorated and she loves to stare at the lights!

the most recent news is that james got orders for germany. we would be able to go with him, but we're trying to get it changed stateside. we have all sorts of maybes flying around. we'd really like to stay, or me stay, where we are now. pray for that! hopefully we'll know something soon!

and now, random pictures for mom who doesn't like fb...
click to make larger.

i love all her little outfits. they are too cute i have to take pictures. most are church dresses. a few were thrift store finds.

these were random ones from our trip home. ma posted mine of ua and adrienne. just realized i didn't have him on here. the first one is from when i watched enola while whit was working. the girls got some playtime in.

getting our tree, and the nativity set ma made in ceramics.

and finally, from today. it was pretty cold here. we had to run to the post office so i put this bonnet on her. she hates hats so that half smile is all i could get out of her.

the bonnet was mine when i was a baby, and i think she just looks too cute!

i've had some old ladies comment about me taking her out in the cold. i just laugh thinking about if we were living in indiana. she'll be okay!
