Brief Update

Wow - it's been a long time since I've posted anything. Unfortunately, keeping up with my blog isn't high on the priority list. In the past few weeks I've had several topics I wanted to write about - but just couldn't make it happen.
So what's new with our family? Ummm...not much. Our routine, Mon-Thur, involves getting up, taking Emily to daycare, going to work, coming home, eating, sleeping and then starting all over. And I feel like there's not enough time to get all of that done. Our house is never really clean, I have a long list of stuff to do and I always feel like I'm not spending enough time with Emily or Brad (or Banjo).

Daycare has been interesting. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving Brad took Emily to the doctor and we learn she had RSV. It was just a mild case - but just gave me another reason not to like daycare. She is sleeping a little bit better during the day. After coming home a couple of days and only having slept a total of 1 hour - we told them it was fine to let her sleep in the swing. Poor thing needs to sleep during the day. I don't know - I'm just not thrilled with this daycare. But I'm not sure I'd be thrilled with any daycare. I just hate not knowing what she's doing all day. I'm just not a fan of the situation. On Friday Emily will have her 4-month checkup, next round of shots and follow-up for RSV. Hopefully she's get the all clear.

Thanksgiving was nice and quiet this year. Our plan was to participate in the Turkey Trot - but Brad was the only one that ended up going. We didn't think it was a good idea to take Emily out in the cold and wind with RSV. Later that afternoon a friend came over and joined us for a simple, easy Thanksgiving dinner. I ordered a fried turkey from Razoos and just made a few, easy dishes. We ate, sat around, watched football and played with Emily. Here's a picture of Emily at the table with all of the food. She sat at the table with us in the Bumbo chair and played with a couple of toys.

Now we are in the process of getting ready for Christmas and taking Emily on her first plane ride. I'm trying to figure out what we need to take and don't need. Any tips? I'm almost done with Christmas shopping and had hoped to finish it this weekend. Well, that's not going to happen.

Now - I think I'm going to take a nap.
