{Catch up}

So I have a lot to catch up on here whomp whomp. Justin has been off since the 20th so I took a little unplanned vacay from the computer. But we are back.
I still have a Christmas & lake recap to come but here but we have New Years Eve [Day] until Now - whoa.
We came home from the lake on the 30th because Miss D had her 2nd hip ultrasound the morning of the 31st.
We are so thankful that the result came back perfect and even though she was in an acrobatic position in my belly for many months her hips are just perfect!
Post bath cuddles with Daddy.
Trying on outfits to wear to our party! Thank you Kae for this outfit! D is working hard to grow into it!
New Years Eve we went over to our friend Darren and Nicole's for Minute to Win it games. It was a blast and we had lots of laughs.
Darren made us all these mason jar glasses with name tags. And yummy cider.
Apparently there were rum drinkers in the house!
Our little party animal!
Super baby on NY Day.
Cruz was the supervisor for all play time activities.
 We saw a bunch of movies over the holidays too.
 I started this book for Delainey. You write just a little note each day for 5 years. It will be fun when she gets older to remember funny things she has said or done. Yesterday she will be proud to read back on the fact that she had the biggest "blow out" of all time for her Dad. He ended up calling for back up and a "poop bag" ha!
 Delainey had passport photos taken!
 We hung out with Uncle Jeff & Auntie Jolie - they hosted a dinner at their new place on Saturday.
{Canada booties from Kae also - first shoes to fit! We love them!}
Delainey has been sleeping in her crib at bedtime since January 1st and doing great. A few times she has been up at 4am for a quick feed and change otherwise she is up between 5-7am - which to us is perfect. We are very proud of her. We also worked on a routine of scheduled naps in her crib - that are longer then 20 minutes. :)
We had a fun family dinner last night with Debbie, Crystal, Troy and the kids - no photos taken - FAIL. But it was great.
And that about catches us up. Over the holidays we did a lot of just hanging out, playing on the floor with miss D, taking turns walking Cruz {ok mainly Justin walking Cruz - it's been cold!}. We did have a great family walk when we had 1 nice day! It was so nice to have Justin home with us. We miss him already. 
But - we are back to regular routine just us girls.
Hope you all had a fantastic holiday too.

Great job D on the naps and sleeping in the crib! That is awesome. Having straight sleep is so nice :) We are getting close!
Her little outfit with the leggings and moon on the onesie - we have the same one and it is huge, even the NB size! I love it :)

Such a fun break! I'm so glad to hear that her hips are perfect. I have James nap in his crib during the day and he's done great so far with the exception of this week. He's a had a rough adjustment since we got back from vacation but he's getting better! I don't think I'm ready to move him to his crib at night yet. I'm thinking about possibly next month but I'm not sure.

She's such a cutie. Looks so cute on the bed in the ultrasound photos. I had to take Liam for an ultrasound when he was young and it's one of my favourite photos of him just chillin there.

Ashley said...

Ahhh those Canada booties are SO cute!

Nicole @ Haute Runner said...

Busy social calendar!! So thrilled to hear that D's ultrasound was clear and her hips are perfect!

You watched a lot of movies! There are a few on there I think I need to see. I suspect we will be watching more movies in our near future.

The One Line a Day is a great idea- especially at Audrey's age where she is saying & doing something new each day! I definitely wish I had done something like that! Too funny about D's blowout! That's happened to us a few times!

Love her mug shot! Did she have a white shirt on, hence the bib?
