Jordan and I both realize that we have not been posting regularly. If it is any consolation, we post pictures on Google+ very often, and email pictures to the people that actually would want to see them anyway. We both decided that we are going to try and blog more often, and that I am going to try to blog when Natalie nap. I’m hoping that keeping up with blogging will help me feel less overwhelmed by it.

Natalie is almost 5 months old! I can’t believe that our little baby is getting so big so fast! She’s really good at sleeping, she’s been sleeping from about 8:30 to 8:30 every day since the end of September. She rolls over, coos, and giggles. She’s started to scoot across the floor on her back and usually pushes herself to the top of her crib during her sleep. I keep telling myself it’s just a matter of time before she’s mobile.

Speaking of Natalie, she is growing so fast! At her 4 month checkup, she weighed 13 lbs 12 oz, was 24.5 inches long, and had a head circumference of 16.5 inches. Jordan has had perpetual strep since the beginning of October and at Natalie’s appointment her throat was red and I told them Jordan had had strep, so they tested her and she was positive. SO sad. We knew something was wrong because she hadn’t been sleeping through the night. She’s better now and as happy and cheerful as ever.

Last week some of our extended family came to visit for Thanksgiving and we had an awesome time (more to follow). We were sad to see them go and are SO excited for Nicole and Nate to move closer :).

Well, that’s all the time I have today. Here are some pictures:
