What We've Been Up To

Now that Carter and I have made a significantly cuter person, all pictures on this blog will be of him. :) I just have to show you all what we've been up to this month, from Will's perspective (which isn't a whole bunch of exciting things, but he looks cute so that makes it interesting.)

I have been looking adorable in my bunny suit (which is now a bit squishy on me and mom is sad)

My neck is getting so strong, this picture was taken a few weeks ago and I'm even stronger now. hooah!

I have made two visits to Great Grandma Harward's house. This is the first time we met, I was a bit out of it.

I LOOOVE my daddy. When he walks into the room I don't let him out of my sight. Taking naps is something we like to do together.

I am an expert smiler and am getting better at laughing too. I like to smile during diaper changes, so here is a picture of the pretty end of that activity.

Baths. I have mixed feelings about them. They're fine until we get to the face and neck.

I look adorable in hooded towels.

I also look adorable when I'm all ready for bed with my jammies and soothie.

Well, that's all we've been up to. You can see in these pictures how much he's grown over the past month and a half, it's happy and sad at the same time. My mom always told me not to grow up, and now I know where she was coming from. Oh well, c'est la vie! We're having so much fun watching Will discover new things, like his hands, which he now stares at all the time and sucks on non stop. He's getting better at sleeping through the night (wa hoo!) and is eating lots. We are looking forward to Christmas and hope you all have a very merry one as well.

That Blogging Feeling

I'm giving notice right now that this post has no pictures, so it might be boring...

For the last few days I've wanted to post something, but I didn't have anything in particular to write about. I still don't have anything to write about but I'm writing anyway.

Two days ago I realized that William can now smile because he's happy, not just because he has the toots. He was also laughing in his sleep today and it was adorable. *This is where I could post a picture of him smiling, but I don't have one since they're a little unpredictable and he hasn't been very happy because of this next part...
I'm filled with guilt because I took some medicine and William got a rash from it. My friend Season said that a big part of parenting must be feeling guilty and I think she might be right.
So, Will has a diaper rash and we're all sad about it, but it's starting to look better. However, I don't know the average life span of a diaper rash.

This Thanksgiving was a little different. All the food was great (except the things I made, but that's a different story) and it was
great to be with family, but Dad Rasmussen was really sick with a cold and flu and by the next day about 4 other people in the family had it, one of those people being Carter. So, for the next few days Carter had the cold/flu and Will and I stayed away from him.
Turns out that we didn't stay quite far enough away because now I'm getting it. Luckily not the flu part, just the cold (that's why I took the fateful medicine). Will hasn't gotten sick and I don't think he will (the miracle of breast feeding) but I'll keep you posted because I know you're all very interested.
We did take advantage of some Black Friday deals at Best Buy. We adopted a TV.. and a Wii. This is an invitation to anyone that would like to come and play with us, we'd love to have you! I can guarantee that you will beat me.

It is now time to wrap up this haphazard post with a wish for all of you to have a very happy holiday season! We love you all!
