oscar riding with mama
oscar riding with daddy
monday was the christmas meeting/party for work. after many requests, i whipped up another batch of booby cupcakes for the occasion. these turned out a lot more realistic looking than the last batch, but also took some extra time. they were a big hit.. they got a bigger reaction this time around, possibly because there were more hard-core pro-breastfeeding people there. there were none left by the end of the party.. several people wanted to take one home to show their family.
our tree is decorated and our stockings hung
here are some of the presents i've wrapped so far. i'm packing up ones that are coming to ohio with us
that night oscar woke up acting funny. he was shaking and his heart was racing and it didnt sound like he was breathing good, so we drove him to the hospital to have him looked at. it's just an ear infection... he's been taking medicine and being grumpy. here's a picture from today with his sick eyes. he looks so pathetic :( of course the bruise on his head doesnt help...
tomorrow we're doing some christmas shopping with nana, dr appts for aaron and oscar, going to see christmas lights and making more boobie cupcakes!
here's a picture of oscar being sad.. not from a lack of chocolate cake, but because daddy left and didnt take him. tshirt from of gramma and grandpa, hairstyle by auntie danielle.
i just made a midnight run to the post office to mail paperwork and check the po box.. on my way out i heard some shuffling on the balcony and in the stairwell and i was a bit creeped out.. then i realized it was a dog. i went to the post office and when i got back the dog was curled up in one of our chairs out front. i set some red beans and rice out for it, but it's just sitting there.. maybe it doesnt like leftovers?
here's this year's slice. hopefully we'll have a whole tree full of them when we're old.
our thanksgiving decorations this year. the tree starts out without leaves and i have a table underneath it where everyone can write what they're thankful for on the leaves and tape them up.
i had prettier paper for the leaves last thanksgiving. i think i need to make a new tree out of something besides paper... it got pretty bent up.
our turkey and turkey carver. i have to toot my own horn on the turkey - it was juicy and delicious! and jeremy did a fabulous job of carving it.
jeremy's dad falls asleep on the floor at every gathering we have. i have pictures to prove it. this time was particularly amusing since he was between the furniture and the wall.
i'm going to try to post about some of my favorite baby stuffs.. for all those readers expecting babies (robyn.)boudreaux's butt paste. i've tried lots of different diaper rash creams (usually because the store is out of the butt paste), and this one seems to work the best for us. it goes on/comes off easy, works great, and has a very subtle scent. of course, having a silly name doesnt hurt either....
