Our Apologies.

Dear everyone,

We apologize for the lack of updates. We have either been lazy or incredibly busy since Thanksgiving. It was probably a bit of both. There is a new album of some pictures here.

At daycare, Emmie did some craft projects (meaning that the teachers did craft projects with Emmie making a mess of everything). This one is my favorite. I honestly crack up every time I see it. Emmie's head is a little too big for the scarecrow body and she has the absolute goofiest little grin on. Very funny.

For Thanksgiving we went out to Des Moines to visit Chad and Betsy like we have for the last couple years. I'm not sure if we go so Julianne can visit her old college friend Betsy, or if it is so Julianne can go shopping. Probably a bit of both. In any case, it was a lot of fun. Here is Julianne and Susie.

This was an attempt at a nice picture of Emilia and our 2 neighbors, Ella and Lola (who are forsaking us and moving to Texas next month . . . boooooooooo!). Ok, back to the picture. Ella was trying to make Lola sit nice, and obviously Lola is having none of that. Emmie is just oblivious to the whole struggle, content chewing on her toes.

Emilia turned 6 months old! Holy yikes! We can't believe it. She is 25th percentile for her head, 50th percentile for weight and 75th percentile for height. Our perfectly proportioned baby is turning into a tall, skinny, smallheaded bald baby. She's cute though, so that's ok. She is rolling all over the place, and looks like she could start crawling in the next month or so. As you can see, she still drools a lot.

Emilia got a cute hat, but it is usually over her whole face - probably due to her freakishly small head.


Julianne made this shirt for her. I think she should go into business selling stuff like this. Any orders?

Emilia's dessert-themed stocking that Julianne made.

Emilia's first Christmas ornament. We're going to do all candy/treats for her ornaments. This one is perfect with the red hair. Thanks for the tip Linda.
