Tis the Season!

Holiday greetings everyone!

Sorry that it has taken so long for us to update the blog, but we've been busy traveling for Thanksgiving and visiting with friends and family. I've been particularly busy with work lately, but everything is going well, so no complaints. Grandma and Grandpa Whitmore came to visit Rockport the weekend before Thanksgiving.

We traveled down to New Jersey to visit AJ, Monica, and baby Kathleen for Thanksgiving. We had a great time with the two little ones! Here's a picture of Kelly and Delaney in her turkey day dress.

We should note, that she had the dress on for a whopping 90 minutes before she had a blowout... but at least we got the picture in!

After visiting with Monica and AJ we went to visit Lola and Papa Houle for the weekend. We had a nice time with everybody, and they were more than happy to help out, thanks Brian!

Here's a picture with everyone who came to dinner that night... Brian and Katie, Nana and Papa Barton, Papa Houle, Michael's in the middle, Delaney's hiding on Nana B, and Kelly and I (Lola insisted on taking the picture). We had a heck of a time trying to get Nana B to keep her eyes open, she just kept laughing!

Delaney is getting bigger. At her 4 month appointment this past Monday, she weighed in at 16 lbs, 6 ounces and was around 26.5" long. The doc says her length is in the 99th percentile, and her weight the 95th... so she's a big baby!!!! Because of this, she's already playing in her exersaucer (or whatever those things are called)....

And she's not all big muscle... she's smart too! By Thanksgiving she'd already figured out how to hold her own bottle.

She still gets tired though. She's doing a good job of sitting up on her own (somewhat).... but when we take our eyes off her, sometimes she'll just fall right asleep.

That's what we've got for now.... we'll try to update soon!!
