I made it through NaBloPoMo and I won a prize! Is it rude for me to post that, I hope not, because as I have said before I never win anything, so it is super exciting to win this year. Some of my posts were pretty close to the wire! But it is done and I have a year under my belt, so maybe next year I can write less crap and more thrilling entries! Please, don't hold your breath though, I don't know if I can keep that promise.
In thrilling Nate related news, tooth #2 has made its appearance. So probably by Christmas he will have 2 front teeth and now he has made our Christmas cards look out of date. Blast him! I guess he is still our cute sweet baby! Our cute sweet baby who I had to go buy 12mon clothes for, he is starting to grow out of his 6-9mon clothes. I was lulled into this false sense that Nate's growth had started to slow down, but then I remembered I didn't buy him any 3-6mon clothes, so he has been in 6-9 mon clothes for a while. But, now he has some of cute as can be 12mon clothes, if I do say so myself.
Gwen has some hilarious phrases now. Every time I do something for her she says "thank you hon" (or honey, depending on her mood). She also mostly calls me Melanie when we are at home instead of Mom, I thought that she would be a teenager before that happens. She also says "I never..." usually eat, sleep or whatever I ask her to do. She says it with such authority it is hilarious.
