- Snotty nose this month :(
- Grandma, Aunt Kate and Aunt Mary babysat while we went to Aunt Allison's 30th bday party. Everyone had fun until bed time. Wouldn't take a bottle so I had to come home and nurse E and put him o bed. Then I went back to the party. Luckily he didn't make a peep until morning.

He spotted Daddy coming up the stairs!
