Gee, Thanks.

Josh took some time off work this week to help out around the house.

Here's where I found him at about 11:30 yesterday morning:

Apparently, "helping out" has a wide range of definitions.

The First Week

I know I've done poorly at keeping the blog updated with new pictures of Hattie, but somehow, suprisingly, having two kiddos has left me with a whole lot less time for picture-taking and blogging. So, a quick update...

Hattie is quite the sleeper. Though I know all newborns sleep a lot, we swear she is unusual. It's a quite a treat when we get to see her beautiful eyes actually open.

Edy loves her baby sister and kisses her endlessly. She is also an excellent fetcher of diapers and wet wipes. Josh has begun to take advantage of her helpfulness though and has her completing various household tasks for him. But she's a smart girl; I'm sure she'll realize what he's up to and put an end to it soon enough.

Many people have asked if Edy has shown any signs of jealously. She hasn't, but I have. Her new attachment to Josh is a little hard for her mommy to take.

I was beginning to go a bit stir-crazy this week and decided it was time to pull out the double stroller. It was chilly, but the girls were snuggly warm inside under the rain fly. (Please don't look at me in this picture...I look just as tired as I felt.)

Hattie Anne Hall

Sweet Hattie is finally here! She arrived bright and early on my 28th birthday, Tuesday, November 9th at 2:16 a.m. She weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces and was 19 inches long. Welcome darling!

One Last Hurrah.

Our days as a family of three are quickly approaching their end. In honor of their departure we took one last set of shots before we add another kiddo to the mix. Unfortunately, very few of those pictures turned out. C'est la vie, eh?

However, if nothing else, this next picture makes me happy beyond belief. Who needs boring ol' posed family portraits, anyhow?

Happy Fall, my friends.
