Pretty exciting time for Lily! In November she started feeling a few teeth getting pretty loose - she was so excited! One finally fell out one morning, and she was very happy. It was the tiniest thing ever - it got dropped at one point in the carpet, and we thought we would never find it. The Tooth Fairy left a dollar for her, which she promptly bought some candy with the next day. I remember when she got that tooth! So crazy.
Even bigger news is she turned the big 7 years old. We had set her birthday party before Thanksgiving because of my due date. We went to the Ogden ATC and had them do hair updo's and manicures for the girls, then came back to the house for pizza, cake and ice cream. Lily seemed so happy, which was awesome because I normally get something horribly wrong and she ends up unhappy with something.
It was pretty lucky we did that, because the day before Lily's birthday she got the flu or something and was pretty sick for almost 3 days. The night of the actual day we went and got her a new coat, and Jackson gave her a new water bottle. We also watched her baby video Amanda made for her - just a few shots from the hospital put to music, but so fun to watch. It's hard to think it has been 7 years and we're having our fourth baby. These events always make the time in between seem so short.
Not much I can say about this little firecracker. She sure keeps us on our toes, at the same time as showing us how sweet she is and lucky we all are to have her around. We love her so much!

We are quite anxious to have this baby. I made a bad decision and let my midwife check me at 36 weeks (dilated to 3, 70% thinned), and 38 weeks (4/90%). So instead of just expecting something to happen within a few days after my due date, like I did with all my other babies, I thought I would go early. So annoying the more time that passed. So now I'm a day before my due date and assuming I will never have the baby, so am finally getting random stuff done, i.e. updating the blog.
November went by pretty fast with school, and I got into a major nesting mood and organized so much of the house (helped a TON when Adam took the kids to St. George for the weekend without me - you can get a lot done without kids around!). Mom and Dad came for Thanksgiving, and Adam was determined to do his own turkey - he did such a good job! It was so yummy. Only feeding 4 adults made for a simple meal and fast cleanup - wonderful! Amanda and Tyler visited one day, and the Saturday after we were able to go down to Provo for Sam's blessing. It was a nice week; would have been so much nicer without the baby expectation I mentioned at the beginning of this post, but it really was nice. Always so much to be thankful for.
