What happened to November?

It has been quite a while since I last updated everyone and a lot has happened. I won't bore you all with every last detail of the past few months, but I did want to hit the high points.

In November, the four of us, along with our two fuzzy companions, boarded a plane bound for Little Rock to celebrate Thanksgiving. While there, we would stuff our faces with turkey, dressing, pumpkin pie, and my grandma's famous chocolate chip cookies that seem to disappear faster with each year. My grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins all got to meet the girls which was really fun. Silly as it may be, I also looked forward to having the girls sleep in my old room at my parents house. In that room, my mom turned my old closet into a sweet nursery complete with a crib that had brown and pink bedding. Both the twins took a turn in that crib for naps and bedtime. It was fun to finally get to use it after several years of using that room but not the nursery. A big surprise was a fun visit with my bff from high school, Christy Hutchins. She got to see the girls and play with them and we even got to talk some too.

Piper started trying to crawl this month as well but was only good at the rocking back and forth part. She would get on all fours and then decide she wasn't ready and sit back down. Lily learned how to hold her own bottle which was an exciting moment! And soon after getting home from Thanksgiving, Piper started holding her bottle as well. And after that I promptly stowed away the bottle holders! Woo hoo! They also picked up on eating solids without gagging which was a big hurdle. I was getting so tired of making food that they weren't eating and trying to figure out how to get them to try it without forcing it down their throats.

And with that, stay tuned for all the exciting news of December! There's even a pink cast thrown into the mix for good measure! Who does it belong to? In the words of my father when he used to tell us bedtime stories with a cliffhanger, "You'll have to wait till tomorrow to find out the rest of the story!!"
