2 months old!

Heath had a great 2 month check up! He's 12.9# now and 23.75" long! He's in the 75th percentile for height and weight up from the 25th so we were very happy!

I started back to work on the 29th (my birthday). As I was hauling him and his stuff into Daycare I twinged my back. I've pretty much been out of commission since. I missed two days of work and also only worked 2 half days. Nick is having to go to and from the babysitter's with me so he can carry him in and out. It's too much weight for me at the moment.

I think my chiro treatment yesterday (the 5th one!) may have finally turned the tide. I'm feeling lots better and was able to work a full day today.

Now to get the Christmas decorations up!

There isn't a Catch! Free Cards!

My favorite Christmas cards are simple. A simple, elegant image with a simple message is what I like best. I love getting photo cards from far flung family and friends and seeing how their kids have changed and grown, the trips they’ve taken, or the pets that have joined their family. I really like the look of this card:


The joy at having a baby this holiday season is something we want to share with all!
With Heath’s adoption I have had a chance to create some wonderful cards. I wasn’t able to make his birth announcements with Shutterfly because a professional photographer friend went created and printed announcements for us as a surprise gift. However, if he hadn’t done so I would have used Shutterfly for sure!

I’ve had many, many compliments on the Baptism announcements I created. It was simple and elegant. I used the Jolie Bebe Blue http://www.shutterfly.com/cards-stationery/5x7-flat-stationery-cards/jolie-bebe-blue-baptism-invitation-4x5-flat?sortType=1&storeNode=93370 with a picture of Heath when he was 12 days old.

I have to say though that my very favorite product from Shutterfly is the photo book. I find myself creating the 8x8 size time and again. http://www.shutterfly.com/photo-books/everyday-8x8-photo-book

I’ve created a photo book of our trip to Venice. I also created one and then ordered two more copies for the kids of our Westward Ho Trip to Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks. I may create another of our A to Z trip from last summer when we visited Arizona and Zion National Park.

I encourage you to check out Shutterfly and this awesome promotion for 50 free cards http://bit.ly/sfly2010!
