Life Lately...

Life these days is busy! We have had a lot of things going on.

1) Trying to prepare for Christmas - gift buying, dinner planning, organizing, sending out Christmas cards (a little later that I had hoped to!!!) There is a lot to do. With it being Palmer's first Christmas and with me having to work a night shift on Christmas night, we figured it would be best to have Christmas dinner at our house, not to mention, the in-law's are in the middle of renovations on their house so their house is in no shape to host Christmas.

2) Palmer went to our dayhome for the first time by herself last week for a couple of hours. I'm so proud of her for doing so well. I thought for sure she would have some separation issues when Mitch dropped her off, but she was so good. Only fussed over her diaper change, which is a common occurrence around here too! I feel really good about sending her there come January.

3) I'm trying to start the planning and preparation for Palmer's first birthday which is coming up in January. I've still got about 6 weeks, but I know that time will just fly by! There is a whole list of things I need to do: invites, decorations, gift ideas, treat bags, food, and the list goes on and on!

4) We are (kind of) in the process of transitioning from two naps to one. There are several days when Palmer will have a couple short cat-naps throughout the day, but I'm trying to start having her do just one long afternoon nap. It worked out great yesterday, she slept for 2 hours in the afternoon. Today, she went down at noon - we'll see how long it lasts.

5) Palmer is only wearing her Starband helmet now when she sleeps at night. We have seen such a huge difference from when we first started wearing it back in September. We are so happy with the results. I think in another week or two, she won't be wearing it at all!!\

6) We got back or photos from Palmer's Christmas Mini Photo Shoot - we couldn't be happier with how they turned out! I'm excited to share them, but it will have to wait til after Christmas! :)
