Special Outings: On Sunday, November 18, we went over to Oma & Papa's house for lunch and you met your Great Aunt Sammy for the first time. Sammy is Great Uncle Bud Crawford's wife, she and Bud visited Oklahoma City after their recent world travels before they returned back to their home in Alaska.

You met your Great Aunt Tamara, Great Uncle Steve, and second cousins Nash and Conner on Tuesday, November 20. Great Aunt Tamara is Granddad's sister and Mommy's Aunt. She and her family came in from North Carolina for the Thanksgiving holiday and to meet you two. Your first Thanksgiving went well and you were surrounded by family who definitely provided you both with endless cuddles and kisses.

You spent your first night at Grammy & Granddad's house on Saturday, November 24 while Mommy and Daddy had a date day/night in Norman for the Bedlam game. Grammy said you did great.

Milestones: Wren, you rolled over (from tummy to back) unassisted for the first time on Saturday, November 10 while we were watching the OU vs Baylor game. We whooped and hollered way more than any touchdown celebration that's for sure. We have been waiting quite a while for you to get the hang of rolling over. Your daddy and I are so proud of you!

Wren, you cut your second tooth, it's on the bottom next to your first one. Grady, you cut your two front bottom teeth around November 20, 2012. I guess we do things two at a time at our house, two babies that cut two teeth at a time!

You both are doing well at sitting up unassisted for a few minutes at a time. You are both trying to roll from your backs to your tummies. If I lay you on your back, you twist over to your side but don't quite get all the way over to your tummy just yet.

My Thoughts: We had a rough first 2 weeks of November. You had your 6 month vaccinations and flu shots (which kept you down for a bit), you were introduced to solids (which didn't go great at first), your bottle nipples were changed to the 6+ month fast flow nipples (nipple changes always throw you guys off), you got a little tummy bug which made for LOTS of yucky diapers (you also shared your bug with your dad and me), and you began teething hard core. I am so glad we are through that particular rough patch. I hated seeing you guys have such a hard time, I definitely spent lots of time giving you extra TLC.

These days our routine looks roughly like this:
6:30am Feed (bottle)
7:00am-9:15am Nap/Quiet Play
9:30am Feed (fruit & bottle)
10:00am-1:00pm Playtime/Tummy time/Cat naps
1:15pm Feed (bottle)
1:30pm-4:00pm Playtime/Tummy time/Nap
4:30pm Feed (veggies, fruit, & bottle)
5:00pm-7:00pm Playtime/Tummy time/Cat naps/Bath-time
7:00pm Feed (bottle)
7:30pm Bedtime

Favorites: Eating sweet potatoes, bananas, & apples, the Christmas tree lights and decorations, and your Fisher Price "Go Baby Go!" Snail and Monkey Musical Ball toys from Oma. They entertain you during tummy time and while you sit up. Later, when you start crawling, we can change the setting and you can crawl along with them.

Dislikes:  Getting your hands and face cleaned up after eating baby food, waiting for Mommy to feed bites to your sibling during solid feedings.

Food:  You are still on the Sam's generic (Simply Right Sensitivity) of Similac Sensitive Formula for fussiness and gas in addition to baby food. Your first baby foods have been: oatmeal, bananas, avocados, sweet potatoes, apples, peas, pears, carrots, & blueberries.

And this is just because...I call it your first album cover... ;)
