Christmas already?

I can't believe that Christmas is here already, it is almost 2011, AND Elliot is 3 months old.  Why does time go by sooooo fast?

Our little Elliot weighs in at about 15 pounds, and wears 6 months clothes.  I don't have all of the official scores b/c her next appt is at 4 months.  But, Ray and I no doubt have another HUGE kid on our hands!  Campbell always wore about 6 mo-1 year ahead of her age, and that is too happening with Elliot.  I just bought Campbell size 6 clothes.  That is even more weird!  Shopping in the little girl section instead of the toddlers.  Way more trendy, that is for sure!!! 

We are staying at home this year for Christmas.  Since I am a rookie at work, I get to work Christmas Eve. :(  Oh well!!  I will pay my dues this year, so next year, I can be off and enjoy it even more with E being bigger!  Ray has been super dad with having the girls on the weekend while I am working, and I am keeping him busy with all kinds of events to go too!    Here are some pics over the last few weeks!  We have been having fun around here! 

 Date night at the Mavs game!  So fun to have the bench seats!
 Us three girls at the Christmas parade!  Where's E?  Inside my jacket!
 Blue steel
 (one of the best looks in the entire world!!)
 Campbell is a great photographer!  All pics are right at her level.  It was a good one of E getting her bath!
 One of the best presents!
 Fun times with the sis n law!
 Little fatty LOVES the bumbo :)
 All dressed up and no where to go!!  Why do they make hoods for babies?  So annoying- I feel like they are more of a choking hazard!
 Sisterly love!
 Camp eating her salad!  She loves it!
 My FAVORITE picture of my sweet, sweet girl!
 Auntie and E - sooooo sweet!
My sweet, smiley Elliot!

Happy New Year!!!!

So I finally got my act together and am doing some comparisons of when Campbell was born to Elliot's arrival.  Just when I thought I had TWO TOTALLY DIFFERENT babies, I think we were wrong.  Tell me what you think!!

Elliot is 1 month old!

So this was officially the FASTEST month of my life!  I really can't believe that my little Miss is already one month old!  Oh!  She is so great and eating and sleeping so well, I couldn't ask for anything more!  I'm also going to really try and do the every month picture.  I was really great at first with Campbell, but then it ALL went downhill.  I didn't even work with Camp, so I'm not sure what I was doing!  When Camp turned 1, I was struggling to find pictures to put in her year frame b/c I didn't have them organized.  I'm on top of it now, we will see!

This last week, we have been hanging out a lot at home!  I love it!  I started walking again ( I don't get released to workout more and run for another 2 weeks) and it has been great!  I walked 5 miles the other day, and it didn't even seem like it! 

I have told myself to really enjoy my last 4 weeks at home with E until I go back to work.  We are doing great with our schedule, so Ray can be stress free when I go back too!  I know I will only be gone 3 nights a week, but just thinking about it makes me sad!  Here are some pics that make me happy!!!
 Campbell woke up from her nap and this is where I found her!  She wants to cuddle up next to E all of the time and kiss her.  So sweet :)
 Did I already mention that she is a total Lobato?  Campbell that is?  Her eyes will NOT stay open with the flash.  I think we took 10 pictures!
 Oh my sweet face!
 Waiting for the Butterfly Parade to start!
 Flower Girl!
 So great at posing, not so great at minding!  :))
 She missed the entire parade
 Campbell had no interest in posing with Jaxon.  This is the only time we could get him to sit with her for a pic!
 And the butterfly shot...
 E and I at the Chili cookoff!  What a great day for some chili and relaxing in the shade.  They only announced the winners 1st-10th, so we are pretty sure that Ray placed 11th. 
 Campbell doing a great job holding Elle.  She is starting to get a little too brave, and just picking her up when she wants.  Over and over I tell her, you MUST hold her head.  Campbell tells me, her neck is fine mom, don't worry.  Oh geez!
Oh my SWEET girl this morning before picture day.  This is the smile she told me she would make for the camera!  She also told me that she would have her eyes wide open too!  Love her!!!!!!!!!

Finally some pics!

How come no one told me it was going to be this busy with two?  I mean!  I would rather be sleeping every time I have a free moment, but that doesn't happen either.  I have been soooo lucky with Miss E, because she has been eating and sleeping like a champ.  I can't complain with ony waking up for one feeding in the middle of the night.  I know, I'm only taking it day by day for now!

The last 3 weeks have gone by super fast and we have done a lot!  I have recoverd very well with my surgery and am so happy about that!  We went to Midland on week 2 for Rhianon and Kyle's wedding!  It was so pretty and perfect and I'm thankful we all were good to travel!  Campbell made a very beautfiul flower girl and danced the night away.    We made a trip to the pumpkin patch to get more "first' pictures, and we have already made many trips to the park.  The fall weather is so great and keeping us outside, I love it! 

I'll do my best to continue with the updates! 

 Us before I went in for surgery!
 As happy as ever :)

 Dressing up is so much fun!
 I offered to ride the train with her, but Ray was going to get in there no matter what!  Such a sweet daddy :)
 Yes, she was really hot, but had to do it for the pictures!
 Sisterly love
