Gobble, Gobble, Gobble
I can't believe that Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now we're on a countdown to the festive holidays! Hanukkah is 10 days away, and Christmas is here in 24 days. We will be celebrating Hanukkah with our girls, and their grandparents (and aunts and uncles) will celebrate Christmas with them. I have all of their Hanukkah presents in the basement...now I just need to find the time to wrap them up. Alas, we cannot have a fun celebration without a Tater Tot being sick. Poor Robin was sick from last Wednesday, thru Thanksgiving and finally is on the mend. She has a double ear infection (ouch), and had a high temperature (above 103) for 5 days! Now she's slowly getting better, but now both girls are getting more teeth...so they refuse to eat and are just plain cranky! Hopefully they'll break through soon! I'm hoping that our Hanukkah and Christmas are sick-free, and both girls are able to celebrate and have fun! Itsy Bitsy Emma is now standing on her own...she'll go up from sitting and stand right up (without holding onto anything). I think she's a little nervous, but is very excited (she claps and screeches when she does it). I'm working with Robin on getting her more comfortable standing, but right now she's not interested. Maybe little Miss Emma will take a few steps before Christmas! Jeremy and I have finally decided on names for the next Tater Tots: Morgan Elizabeth and Ryan James. We are super excited for their arrival in the late-winter/early-spring!
