I had SUCH a good birthday this year, and was so spoiled! It's a perfect weekend, and on top of the festivities, the weather is gorgeous and feels like summertime. My favorite. I was gifted with some birthday money so my Etsy cart I've been virtually filling got purchased and I made use of my JoAnn's 50% off coupons with a little spending spree. I can't wait for things to arrive in the mail! And the best part of the day... playing with the two cutest little babies!
Look who found her feet today!! I took off her sock so she could have the full toes experience.
Thanks everyone for all the sweet birthday messages, gifts, and love. 32 is going to be a good age, I can feel it!

Nice shot Jeff. Not like you actually want to see us or anything. I think he was channeling my Dad's photography framing here. It's hard to tell but that's Lynne, Jan and I. And I'm wearing my beautiful new Moth sweater from Anthro Lynne gifted me for my birthday. It's navy blue and the back is a sheer navy blue and white polka dotted chiffon. It's gorgeous.
Karen and Mark came through yet again and brought this beautiful bird. It was the star of the Thanksgiving table.
And more of the baby because she's cuter than a turkey.
New toy! Karen brought over this new gem for Elsa to play with. It secures really easily to the door jambs and she seems to enjoy bouncing in it. Carrie also lent us a crazy looking exersaucer thing that we haven't tried out yet, but looks promising. Pics of that later.
I hope everyone had a fun Thanksgiving, and celebrated the many things we have to be thankful for. I know we did.

We had Elsa's four month check up with the pediatrician yesterday and here are her stats: 11 lbs 2 ounces (below the 5th percentile! She's mini), 25 inches long (between the 50-75th percentile), and 40 cm head circumference (between 10-25th percentile). The doctor said she looked perfect though and had a perfect physical exam so we're not worried about her midget stats. She got my little genes.
Excitingly, the doctor said it would be okay to start trying a little rice cereal for her in the hopes that the boob milk and cereal mix will stick to her ribs a little more and give us a little more time in between feedings, especially at night. We gave her the Earth's Best whole grain rice cereal because it's organic and the box is pretty. You can see a video of her first feeding on my YouTube channel.
I'm really excited to break out all of Elsa's eating-related gifts. We have a big bag full of gifts given to us to assist in the job of feeding the baby. All of the little bowls and spoons and sippy cups and snack traps and food mill and Beaba are going to start coming into rotation. Fun!

Jude loved Thor! And I think Thor returned the affection by not moving away when Jude grabbed handfuls of his fur.

My cousin said that Elsa looks like one of the cute trolls in Norwegian folklore. I can see it, especially when she wears this sweater.
It was chilly here this morning so we put her in the sweet little hat Hallie's grandmother knit for her. I love the colors of it, so cute!

Here's a sneak peek at some of the fabrics I'm using for the Christmas presents I'm making.
My mom cross-stitched this one and it's so rad. It's on a shimmery metallic cross stitch fabric, and the colors are amazing. I hope she forgets it here and I get to keep it.
