Bye for the Holiday!

Geez, I open my blog up to the public and then promptly take a two week break! Sorry about that. We're off for two weeks to visit my family out of state for Thanksgiving. I'm super nervous about the really long road trip with the five kids but excited to see my dad and mom and siblings!!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

Funny Everett

Everett has started to do this thing where when he's crying he scrunches his face up and closes his eyes really tight. I think he's consciously trying to show me just how upset he is because after he does a wail with his face like that he'll stop and open his eyes really quickly to look at me and see if I'm watching!

My Baby Hates Being Bundled Up!!

H A T E S it!
He hates wearing clothes. He really hates wearing socks. He really, really, really hates wearing sweaters or coats. He most especially hated this baby coat bag thing.  photo 236eresized_zps048cbcf5.jpg

And as for what I do currently to bundle up Everett, I put a full outfit with socks on him under a zip up footie pajama. Then a sweater over that. Then socks (or mittens if I can find them) on his hands (which he despises) and then a hat on his head (which he desperately tries to take off and succeeds in doing most of the time!) and then a big blanket over everything once he's buckled into his stroller or car seat.
It's a mess, but he does stay warm.  photo 238eresized_zpsa7dda965.jpg

And how cute are his little teeth showing in that picture above and look at that sweet (albeit cranky) face below!  photo 241eresized_zpscba94ddc.jpg
