Also, I'm really enjoying the many perks that come with Jesse's new job which is getting Thanksgiving and the day after off, paid. He's been working so much lately we don't get to see him as often as we used to, so it'll be nice to have a four day weekend with him. It's awesome to have a real grown up job!
But I need to tell you a funny story about last night because we tried something new with Penelope and reconfirmed some of our ideas on sleeping with your children.
Yesterday, we took Penelope to her 15- month doctors appointment (26lbs & 30in!) where she got 4 shots. Usually shots have either a slightly drowsing affect or she is entirely normal so we didn't think much of it.

P: *knocking on our headboard* Daaaadaaaaaa.
J: *laughing* Yes?
J: *giggling louder*
Both: *laughing hysterically*
T: Jess, if you keep laughing then she'll keep laughing and we'll never sleep.
Both: *Laughing even more*
T: Do I need to separate you two?
Both; *silence...then both start to snicker and proceed to laugh hysterically again*
J: Are you okay?
T: Yeah...she just poked me in the eye...
J: Oh okay...ouch!
J: Penelope just punched me in the face!
All of us: *laughing hysterically*
So after about an hour of no one sleeping we decided to give the crib a go again. Within minutes she was out.
This morning I am crazy tired but honestly, the hilarious memories were so worth it. But I think I can speak for the two of us when I say that we won't be trying co sleeping again for a while...
PS: Here are some more pictures I never got around sharing from last month.
|All hail the Pumpkin Queen!|
|Is she not the cutest thing ever??|
|This girl loves to pretend to drive cars (or tractors in this case.)|
|Hugging the pumpkin, awe.|
|Apparently she didn't want to be apart of our selfie.|
