Best husband ever.
So with the extra money on the Visa, we each chose a book for ourselves, for Natalie, and for the family. If you know us, you know books are our FAVORITE, so we were in heaven. We decided we'd use this opportunity to complete our Harry Potter collection, purchasing 3 and 4. We had to display all seven books on the piano, it looked so fabulous together! (I chose "The Night Circus" by Erin Morgenstern and Austin got "The Black Prism" by Brent Weeks; for Natalie Austin chose "Strega Nona" (Nata Nona, as we call it) and I got Mary Engelbreit's "Twas the Night Before Christmas").
We did most of our Christmas shopping today (for other people this time, not just ourselves!) and it makes Christmas seem that much closer. I'm excited to wrap - there's something extremely juicy about packaging presents all perfectly in pretty paper! (alliteration!)
Natalie has been very helpful lately:
|all ready for Mommy's jog|
|helping us find things at LeGrandpa's house|
|snoozing while I write a letter to Elder Max|
She's been practicing her rolling too; she's great at going from back to stomach, but she doesn't know what to do after that:
|sometimes it's something normal...|
|...or it's a wipe|
