14 weeks and counting...

Until our "baby girl" turns ONE!!!  Where has the time gone???  I can't believe she'll be 9 months old already next week.  I guess it's time to start planning her party!  I have no idea where to start though.  No thoughts on a theme, decorations...nothing.  I know she'll never remember it, and I know it won't turn into what I really want it to, but I like to think that I can throw one of those really cute first birthday parties...

Anyways.  I just ordered a new "big girl" car seat for her, and a playpen to put around the Christmas tree so that she doesn't get into it when she shouldn't.  I couldn't believe the seat actually fit in my car.  It's nearly twice the size of her infant seat (it's a convertible so it faces rear and front), but it fits better than her infant seat...which...mind you...she still hasn't outgrown but it's getting close! 

Halloween this year was lots of fun!  Julia was a little lady bug, and daddy took her out trick or treating while I hung out at the house and handed out candy.  I was ok with it because it was COLD!!!  Plus, I got to see all the other cuties that were out and about!  She (well, daddy) did pretty good for her first year.  She had one of those plastic pumpkins and it was almost half full!!!  Apparently, a few people said to my hubby "I know you're not trick or treating for her, so you can take your pick".  That would have been funny to see! Hehe

Thanksgiving was lots of fun too.  We saw a lot of my family on Thanksgiving day, then on Friday, while Michael was working, I started putting up the Christmas tree and a few decorations!  Unfortunately, the tree sat with just lights on it until yesterday...  We went to visit with his family on Saturday, and celebrated his niece's (niece-in-law) 16th birthday.  It was lots of fun.  Julia didn't sleep well...AGAIN...while we were there, so that made for a very crabby mommy on Sunday.  I stayed at the house and slept while they all went to church.  =(

Oh yeah...another thing since my last update.  I had to go see an orthopaedic surgeon for a consultation on my wrist.  See, I got tendinitis when I was cheering in high school.  It kind of disappeared for a bit, and reared it's ugly head once I was picking up Julia on a regular basis.  I now have this super high fashioned wrist brace (high amount of sarcasm there...) that I'm supposed to wear every day.  It's not too bad, just hard to get used to...

Well, that's all I've got right now!

Until next time...

God bless.
