4 Month Photos

I'm not really that good about remembering to take pictures and I'm not really that good at taking them either. Fortunately for us, my sister is. She's the official unofficial family photographer. So whenever she comes around we put her to work. Here are a couple she took last time she was here.

I love her smile.

1st Feeding

At her 4 month checkup the doctor gave us the go ahead to start feeding Hannah cereal. Yippee!! I realize that may not sound exciting, but it is when you spend 6 hours a day feeding her. So, I'm looking forward to supplementing with food. Anyway, last night we spoon fed her some cereal for the first time. As expected we made a mess, but we got some great facial expressions from her. It was pretty fun. Here's one picture we got that kind of shows the mess. She sneezed a few times and I think we got as much on us as she did on her bib. All-in-all it was pretty fun

My sister came down for the weekend and while she was here we made caramel apples. Okay, by we I really mean she. My duty was to stir the caramel and hand her apples. Tough work huh? This picture only shows them halfway done. They were dipped in caramel. Then once they were cooled they were dipped in chocolate and coated with either heath bits, skor bits, or drizzled white chocolate. Can you say yummy?! They were pretty tasty and beautiful too. Sorry I don't have a picture of the final product.
While she was here, Becky also helped me paint Hannah's room AND babysat Hannah while James and I went to dinner. Isn't she awesome?

Hannah has cried almost the entire day.
I have gotten NOTHING done. Nothing at all.
I'm tired.
Most every room is messy.
I don't know what to make for dinner.

Part of me just wants to sit down and cry, but the other part just has to laugh. This is life - as mundane and unproductive as it is some days. One day I'll look back at these moments with fondness so I might as well enjoy them while they're here.

Family Photo

So here is the most recent family picture. My sister took the picture and edited it. I think 4 or 5 people are photoshoped in with a better picture. Crazy - you can't even tell.

This was the temperature when I got up to run this morning. Yikes. Let's just say it was an invigorating run. I don't think I'm ready for it, but I believe winter is here.
