Leah and I went to visit Morgan at the tree farm and pick out it tree. It was windy and very cold. Leah wasn’t too impressed and about to cry because of the wind so we made it it a quick trip. Morgan cut the tree down the next day and put it in our car. We put it in a garbage bag so it wouldn’t drop needles all over the hallway of our apartment complex.




Our Christmas tree is up now and looking delightful. Leah likes the tree and I even caught her looking at herself in one of the ornaments. I have to buy some tree lights soon (hopefully a set that can twinkle).



I bought Leah some Christmas shirts the other day. I had a really hard time finding anything red without a big truck or some other predominantly ‘boy’ logo on it. It seems to be mostly pink with a few purple and green hues on all the girls clothes out there.

I did found a three onesie Christmas set that was gender neutral. They had it in 6-12 months or 12-18 months. There is a huge difference between a 6 month old and an 18 month old. Still have not figured out the sizing of children’s clothes and I don’t think I will anytime soon. I ended buying the smaller ones which barely fit her, which is alright as she needs them for the next two weeks. I am trying to get my money’s worth out of them (which I know is impossible in two weeks, but that doesn’t stop me from trying) and I think they are so darn cute. Oh, and by the way, just because she is not dressed in pink that does not mean she is a boy. Note the ruffle on her pants or the jean dress or the girly shoes… that means girl.


Doesn’t this smile look like one of those great, fake, cheesy ones when you tell a young child to smile? If she has started this already, my pictures of her for the next five years are all going to bear this striking resemble to this. Not exactly what I am going for…


Those bottom ornaments may have to move up a few branches soon. I think that would be the best Christmas present ever for Morgan if Leah started to crawl. As you can see, it will just be a matter of time.

    I love that picture of the three of you at the tree farm. It looks fantastic- Even Leah is smiling and there was no mom or dad behind the camera doing everything possible to make her do that! lol
