embrace the camera - november 2

still pluggin' away at the living room. i've just been working on part of the room each day. too much to roll all the walls at once. we're wrapping up morning lessons and baby's about to take a nap - so we'll get started cutting in part of the last wall then. it's a little chaotic with books everywhere, since we have to move bookcases all around. i will be very glad to have this room back to normal at the end of the weekend.

i actually talk in italics. it's impossible to convey my actual speaking voice without using them. but i try not to overdo it when typed out. italic overkill.

emily's embracing the camera again this week! (edit: umm... no she's not. girl has a lot on her plate. looks like this week ETC was the plate to fall. that's good! i'd much rather see someone forget a blog linky thing than ignore her real life priorities. so i'll link up to the week before.) i had this freeze frame of a flip video from mid-October. very much a normal part of everyday lately. not the best quality, but still much better than never capturing that moment at all.

baby's getting bigger, slowly but surely. she's 10 weeks old now and almost out of her preemie clothes! she weighed in at 10 lbs. buck necked this morning. four more ounces and she'll have doubled her birthweight! :) since she's healthy, gaining, and strong, I can say it's been really fun having a baby be so little for so long. some of our babies gained weight so quickly that the teeny newborn stage seemed to pass overnight.

i'm soakin' her up. she's such a love.
