THE OCTOBER, NOVEMBER, DECEMBER HIGHLIGHT REEL
(otherwise known as what you've been missing from my life over the past three months)
(also, they're mostly of Eulalie because Pier is a toddler tornado
and getting a photo of him is anything short of miraculous)
1 | Eulalie had her first Christmas! We had many Christmas music dance parties, decorated the Christmas tree, and had a quiet Christmas morning opening gifts from Santa. It was a really sacred and sweet time for our family spending the last holiday in our little Indiana house. I'll never forget the memories we made here, especially during the Advent and Christmas seasons.
2 | Lots of visitors came! We had Brad's mom stay with us, then our good friends the Finney's drove in from Pennsylvania to celebrate Thanksgiving with us, and then my parents drove up the day after Christmas to spend a few days before ALL of us down to Louisiana to spend New Years week together.
3 | We survived a huge string of illnesses -- two epic family stomach viruses, a double ear-infection for Pier, and Eulalie getting her shots//teething all within a few weeks of each other. Crossing my fingers we're all well and I am determined NOT to catch the flu. Because that would be the end as we know it.
4 | Pier has been growing non-stop. He goes to school twice a week, his favorite food is "pizza and chocolate", and he's been especially good at "sharing with you-wee" lately. He helps me cook dinner every day and is the BEST at fetching diapers for the baby or putting away laundry. It's the most entertaining age yet because he's getting so communicative and the things he says just make us laugh so hard. He also loves to take his pants off. That's two for you.
5 | Eulalie turned 6 months old in January and I will work on a separate post to update telling you all about her newest tricks and developments.
Ok that's all I got...the holiday months are so crazy, we didn't really do much except prepare for all the feasting, present-opening, and party-throwing that comes with the season. Also, taking care of sick babies while you are sick completely wipes all your energy so we were in recovery mode during most of the final weeks of 2017. It's a new year now so I am going to be better about posting things on this blog for you! Promise ;)!
