Is It December Already?

Well, I don't know where the time has gone. Thanksgiving came and went so quickly and we were so blessed to have our dear friends invite us over to their home for the holiday since it was our first Thanksgiving away from family. We were at their house from 10am to 8pm. I hope we didn't overstay our welcome! Suzie just loves the Eddins and will always recite all 7 of their names whenever we are on our way to their home. Here is a picture of her with two of their boys, Danny and Judson:

I said I would never get a fake tree, but some friends had an extra one that they gave us and I gotta admit, I love it! No mess, no hassle with the lights, no dead needles, no holes. Why didn't I convert sooner?

We don't have a fireplace so we had to improvise with the stockings:)

Our traditional Thanksgiving family picture. It's amazing to get one with no one's eyes closed!

Here's one of my favorite's of Suzie-Q.

And one more fun one...with Suzie's bedhead:)

We are doing great here. I'm 25 weeks now and feel more pregnant than I ever did with Suzie. I'm only three weeks away from where I was when I had her! That is just crazy. Kyle wanted to stick with the "S" names so we've decided to name him Sawyer. Little Sawyer is quite the mover which is definitely the best thing about pregnancy. Suzie's doing great and is officially doing therapy without mom around. I watch from the parent room and she is just thriving. She is walking more and more, probably 5-10 steps 6-8 times a day on her own. She does better at therapy. She is talking up a storm, knows all her shapes and numbers from 1 to about 13 and is even getting pretty close to knowing the whole alphabet (in the song, not by seeing the letters).

Since this really is my online scrapbook and the closest thing I have to a baby book for Suzie, I wanted to record some of the cute things she has been saying lately so I'll remember them years from now. Here are a few phrases she says regularly in her sweet little voice:
"Hi Mommy! Good morning to you!"
"Daddy!!! Suzie wants you!!"
"I get it for you."
"Hey! What you doing?"
"How are you?" Then when you ask her how she is she'll respond with, "Pretty good."
"I hurt. Kisses make it better."
"Twenty-two hours." (No idea where this comes from but she says it a lot!)
"Where are we?" She says this whenever we get really close to home and she wants you to ask her the same question back. Then she'll say, "Home!"
"Night, night darling."
"Bye sugar!" She says this to her therapist Pam when she's leaving.
If you go into the bathroom she'll say, "I go potty too!" Although she's not really close to actually using the potty:)
There are so many other funny little things she says, but that's all I can think of for now.

Thanks for continuing to follow us here on the blog. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

I always love the pictures and updates, Suzie is such a cutie pie. Guess what, Calla does the same thing as Suzie - whenever we pull into the garage, she says, "Are we?" just so we can ask her, "Where are we?" and she says "Home!" Kids are so much fun!!
