Archives for the month of: November, 2008

Michael met my Uncle Kev, Aunt Jean and cousins, Anthony and John for the first time a couple weeks ago.  He was a complete ham, laughing and talking anytime anyone would look at him. 




October was a long month in our house.  Michael and I were both sick with various forms of the common cold the entire month.  I have almost completely recovered and Michael too is on the road to recovery. 

This is how Michael felt about being sick for so long.


Being sick didn’t stop us from having a great month!  Highlights from just the first couple weeks:

Grandma Connie came to visit the first week in October.  She had fun watching Michael while I went running, training for the Des Moines Half Marathon.


Aaron ran the Des Moines Marathon and I ran the half marathon.  Our friends Jill and Peter were in town for our friend Erin’s baby shower so they brought Michael to the race for us.  We heard Michael was so excited when he heard the music and all the cheering that he could hardly eat… a rarity for him!



Grandma Connie and Aunt Erin Marie visited again for the day.
