Check out the latest pictures!  The facial expressions are fantastic.

It took us a little longer than usual, but we got the tree up and decorated.   We only had a small altercation with the lights, but they gave in.   The tree has a great selection of ornaments with room for a few more - just in case.  

I ran another time lapse setup.  The camera was set to take a frame every minute and I added some royalty free music from iTunes.   iMovie and Aperture make this project a snap!

Bottle Feeding

For reasons unknown to us, Shelby is refusing to eat from a bottle now! She starts screaming or just plays with the nipple in her mouth. It takes Scott an hour to get her to drink 2 oz. The Pumpkin has six weeks to get her act together before she goes to day care!

She also seems to be quite comfortable on her changing table. So, Scott attempted to feed her on the changing table with moderate success! Who says you can't eat where you poo?

Christmas Photo Shoot

This morning Shelby was very happy to pose for some Christmas photos.  I turned the living room into a little photo studio.  She even made it through an outfit change.   We shot a few family pictures last night, but we're saving those for the Christmas card.   I just placed the order at Costco - 75 cards for about $23, with envelopes.   That seems about half the going rate!

Saving for College

Tonight I opened Shelby's 529 College Savings Plan through Vanguard.   I figure the odds of the market losing another 50% are pretty slim.   Starting now should make the monthly contribution fairly manageable.   I'll have to run a few calculations to see what tuition will run in 18 years...   

Anyway, donations are welcome!   Shelby thanks you.
