Well, we usually get our family pictures taken the weekend before Thanksgiving & for the past 2 years have gone to Sears for them. It was all Waco had where we lived besides Wal-Mart or expensive professionals. So we again went to Sears last year here in Houston for pictures & had another great session. This year, however, not so good! We had to go late this year since I got sick & finally got them done last weekend, but our pictures were awful. I cancelled the order, got a refund, & we rescheduled with a local place where I got Rylie's 2nd birthday pictures taken.
Rylie was a little difficult to get to post & look at the camera & such but she still did pretty good. We're mostly extremely happy with our family pictures, which I'll post later after Christmas cards have gone out!
On a side note, my followup with the surgeon went well yesterday. She said I'm healing fine & shouldn't need to come back. The first 5 or 6 days were the worst. I could barely move without help from David. I couldnt lift anything until this past week, even though I'm still not supposed to pick up 10 lbs till Christmas. Now I feel I'm almost completely healed. I'm still not allowed to exercise other than walk/run until the end of Dec. But everything else looks good!
Also, miss Rylie Paige said her first 4-5 word sentence yesterday, even though it's not a "correct" sentence. She woke up, pointed to her Christmas tree in her room & said "My light on please! My light on please, Mommy!" lol I was blown away. She's only been on the 2-word sentences lately. My quiet little Rylie is finally speaking! lol
