Is this not the cutest little boy you've ever seen?
Parents of other little boys are exempt from answering that. :)

As promised, here are some of the pictures we had taken of the kids (the rest are on our Christmas cards that are going out tomorrow so those are still a surprise!) I cannot wait for Julia's hair to be normal again! It's reaching the stage where it needs a serious intervention, but I can't bring myself to cut it very short. I'm going to take her to see my hairdresser soon and see what magic she can work.
She continues to do great. The bump up in her Trileptal dose has worked beautifully and there hasn't been a single shake out of her in weeks. Her behavior has been wonderful, although she still needs a serious lesson in how to share her toys with Daniel. And how to share Daniel's toys with Daniel. But for the most part she has been very protective and nurturing towards him. He was sick for the past week with a virus that caused three days of fever, three days of rash, and a lot of clinginess and whining. She made sure he had a blanket on him whenever he was laying down on the Boppy to drink his bottle, it was adorable. Yes, he's still on the bottle, but only for milk. I tried to get him off of it a couple of months ago but he's a stubborn one.
We leave for Texas on Friday and we're all so excited to be spending Christmas with friends and family. Merry Christmas to everyone!
