November, In Review

The highlight of November was probably Tate's Thanksgiving program--where he sang every song with such gusto I almost couldn't contain myself.  It really was the cutest thing ever.  I must find a video to post.  I was also able to get away for a few special times with Rowan--muffins with Mom at school and a fun American Girl night.  Lance took the kids to meet Alex Morgan when she was in town.  Lance was super excited to meet her.  The kids were super excited that they were handing out Sprite in line.  We spent a nice, relaxing Thanksgiving at my mom's and, true to Pellow form, took no pictures at all.

 Tate loves trying to get Sully to smile.  Clearly he's pretty good at it!

October, in review

Clearly I haven't updated this blog since Sullivan's birth.  He's now 5 months old.  So I'm going to do my best to go through these past months and at least write down some highlights.  I don't want to forget the fun, adorable stages of my kids (but I might want to forget the sleepless nights, seemingly ceaseless crying and the few bouts of mastitis).

October was our first month as a family of 5.   I spent a while recovering from a c-section, holding a sweet, tiny little newborn, and attempting to keep things as normal as possible for the older kids.  In addition to Sullivan's birth day, we celebrated my mom's birthday and my own birthday.  We celebrated Halloween and first smiles.
