New Pictures & Thanksgiving

We finally have uploaded some new pictures to our gallery. Click on the slide show and it will take you to all of our pictures. Scroll down to the bottom for the most recent pictures. Our computer still isn't fixed, but Christopher posted them another way. We still have more pictures to post and hopefully we will get to that soon.

Thanksgiving for us ended up being a real bummer. We were going to go to Sacramento and see my mom's side of the family, but the day before we were going to leave (11/26) both Nathan and I were getting sick. That night Nathan was waking up every couple of hours and I was getting no sleep because of a horrible sore throat. The next morning I was out of commission, Nathan seemed to feeling really bad, and Christopher felt like he was getting sick. We decided that it would be best not to travel five hours away when we were all sick. Since our plans were scrapped we decided to have a small turkey dinner at home. Christopher did all of the cooking (I did a lot of sleeping) and the dinner turned out great! I did miss all of my family though!

Nathan had his very first cold and it was my first cold of the year. It really has not been fun. Nathan has been so stuffed up and congested and there isn't much that we can do. We try to get out the snot with one of those nose suction bulb things, but he hates it and will do all that he can to make sure we cannot get it in his nose. I am sure that he had a sore throat at one point and if it was anything like mine it was bad. He was not sleeping well for a few nights and we got a humidifier and that along with the cold getting weaker has gotten him down to only waking up twice a night, which is WONDERFUL! Both of us are getting better and I am looking forward to when Nathan is 100% again. I do have to say that colds come at a horrible time for me. The last time that I was really sick was last year when we were on a trip to Hawaii! The good part about being sick during a holiday is that Christopher was home the whole time to help me out which I really appreciated!

Here is Nathan for Halloween:

Nathan also turned 7 months old on 11/26. The time is really flying by!

Still not able to upload pictures

I was waiting to do a new post in here once we were able to upload new pictures because I assume that most people want to see the pictures more than read the blog. We are still having issues with our "Drobo" (an external hard drive) so we cannot upload any pictures. Christopher is working with the company on trying to get it fixed and if it looks like it is going to take a lot more time he is going to work on an alternative way to get the pictures uploaded so that everyone can see them.

For Halloween Nathan was Tigger. He was swimming in the costume, but he looked really cute. We only went to our friend Rhonda's house to Trick-or-Treat. It was a pain in the butt to get the costume on and off so we only wanted to go to one place. He didn't cry when he had the costume on which was a first for him (the night before he cried a lot when we put it on him).

Nathan's new thing that he is doing is sticking out his tongue. It is really cute. I guess that everything, except for the crying, is cute to me :) He doesn't really care to be on his stomach, but we are putting him on it so that he can get some practice at making the movements that are a precursor to crawling. He will lift his butt up off the ground and lift his chest up and then he will push back with his hands which makes him scoot backwards. It is funny to watch, but he gets frustrated. Nathan is also great at moving around in his crib. We will put him facing in a certain direction and then when we aren't looking he manuvears around and ends up in a completely different position from what we had placed him in.

We think that Nathan is teething, but there doesn't look like there is any sign of a tooth coming. I think that we have been saying that he is teething for a couple months now :)

Everyone else in the household is doing well and we are looking forward to all of the holidays coming up!
