Let's place catch up

Hold on tight, this will be a fast one.

Lyla's first Thanksgiving was great! We got to spend time with a lot of people that we love and most importantly, people that love us! :) At least they tell us that they do! Lyla also got to see her Aunt Sonya (Sean's cousin) again and meet her Uncle Jonathan (remember the bromance?) for the first time! We also took some family pictures and well, I must say we are an ADORABLE family!

Lyla and I then met my mom and we traveled to Wichita to do some shopping. We hit up Carter's outlet and got Miss thang a bunch of new clothes!!! I love their clothes. I got majority of my Christmas shopping done, which is great! We then stayed with my brother and my new SIL and visited with them and did more shopping until we came home on Sunday (with a lot of stuff and no money leftover). Sunday evening we put away the thanksgiving decor and put up the Christmas stuff! I also got Lyla her own Christmas tree for her room! Get this, it's pink and Zebra... and Sean hates it, but I LOVE it! :) But more on that in a different post.

In the world of Lyla, she's still an oinker! And she also still hates sleep. So yesterday I started to let her cry it out whenever I put her down for the night. 7 minutes later and she was asleep. She cried pretty hard for a little bit (and so did mama) but she/we/I both survived it. It wasn't near as bad as I thought it would be. Then tonight I was expecting it to be worse, but it only took 3 minutes. Hopefully she's getting the hang of it and not teasing us! Unfortunately she still isn't sleeping for more than 3 hours at a time so hopefully after she gets used to this, she'll go to sleep better and she'll learn to sleep for a long long time! She is also getting close to rolling from her tummy to her back and she loves to lift her legs off the ground. She hasn't found her toes yet, but I'm sure it's coming. She also loves to stand and bounce whenever we hold her up.

Well I think that covers it! I'll do a picture post soon as I took over 230 pics in the last week!! Wooza!
