Holidays and Peanuts

We had a great Thanksgiving with the Simpsons and the Solidays in Leland.  Maddox was in cousin heaven.  He “rough housed” as much as he possibly could with his big cousins and ran himself ragged.  It was fun to watch.  Josie had fun too.  More from the spectator perspective of course.  But she was certainly soaking it all in.

We found out today that Josie is allergic to peanuts and sesame.  (Like the seed, not the street).  Oh well.  I reckon we’ll start looking for alternatives.  Its a little hard to imagine her growing up without eating peanut butter sandwiches.  I wasn’t aware that would be possible when I was a kid.  Could have been a whole lot worse though.  I mean, what if it had been chocolate.  Yikes.  I don’t want to think about it.  Seriously though, it will mean a bit of a lifestyle change around here.  Maddox took the news real serious and vowed to keep her away from any and all peanuts that might still be in the house.  Oh, and he would keep them away from Paco too, just in case.

The house is all decorated up for Christmas.  Maddox is pretty excited about it.  He wanted to get a tree and the lights up as soon as we got home from our Thanksgiving trip.  We got started on the lights outside and he was a great help, for a little while, and then got distracted and left me to it.  It’s like he has the attention span of a 3 year old or something.  We managed to hold him off until the next day for the tree, but he asked all day when we could go get it.  When we finally did I think he had the lights on it and decorated in record time.  Christmas is going to be fun this year for sure.

Josie continues to grow and change.  She’s babbling all the time now and has sounds for several different things.  Paco, dogs, food, the important things.  She’s getting quick on the crawl and pulling up everywhere, but I think the walking is still a little ways off.  She seems content being low to the ground right now as far as the mobility goes.

Josie and her baby.  Inseparable. 
So sweet.
