For the Month of November here is what happened.

Lynlee has been going into the doctor for her weight and slow growth every month.  I originally made an appointment with this one office for a specific doctor, but the day I needed the appointment was full.  I ended up with a different doctor and for a couple months I was frustrated.  Then that doctor left the practice and I made an appointment for her November appointment with the doctor I wanted.  I was so incredibly happy with this doctor and I know feel that we are getting somewhere with miss Lynlee.  We did the allergy tests and she has no allergies!!!! So now we are going to try and give her high calorie drinks (the soy ones because she is still worried of how her body reacts to milk.). She had her first Soy drink yesterday and she LOVES them which I think is a good thing.  Doc said we could slowly introduce milk back into her diet, but slowly.  Anyways, that post spilled over to yesterday's appointment. I am just excited that we have a good doctor who is willing to try conventional methods before sending her to a specialist.

Lynlee mastered walking and tries to run now and falls, but it is so darn cute.  She loves girly things like putting on necklaces, carrying around her purse and she loves shoes. She will go into our closet and pull out all of our shoes (mainly tries on mine) and will carry thing around. She loves to get into her headbands and put them on her arms and walk around showing everything.  She is shy when people first meet her, but seems to warm up really fast.  Definitely at the stage where she clings to mom and dad in public, but has no problem talking to people as long as mom and dad are around.   She has become so smart.  We just love her to pieces.

Anyways,  Matt has been doing well with his job.  His company isn't doing so well, and we are a little worried about it's future.  That being said we are keeping are eyes and ears open for some new employment prospects and possibly going back to school.  The parts he most enjoys about his job is when he feels like he contributed something.  He also seems to be a step above in understanding excel and LOVES teaching them how to use it (his boss now really likes to use pivot tables).  I love the fact that Matt can talk to me about what he is doing and I understand.  I really do enjoy that we have very similar educational backgrounds.

Nothing new with me except that I get the awesome opportunity to stay at home with our little girl and help her learn new things.

We had some old college friends stop by for a night on their way to California.  It was good to see Matt and Tara Nearants and their cute little girl.

We decided last minute to go home for Thanksgiving.  When I say last minute I mean Matt came home Tuesday night and said he didn't have to work Wednesday and I was like "we are just going to stay here it is to short of notice to go home".  Wednesday morning I just wanted to go so bad I called up my Mom and said we were coming.  It happened all so fast and I think I was a great decision.  My whole family including Mitch and Lindsey from Kentucky were there with our cute new niece.

Lynlee was grumpy hence why her face looks the way it does.  Lynlee and Alex are 4 months apart. 

It was fun to spontaneously go home for Thanksgiving we did the drive in 10 1/2 hours it was pretty remarkable (that is excluding the 1/2 hour total of all our stops for gas and lunch).  Matt and I have fallen into a system of he and I switch driving and it makes the trip much more enjoyable.  We got lucky with not having to take trixie either.  Our friends down the street agreed to come let her in and out and feed her (seriously I still feel like I should pay them).  They are basically the most awesome people I know.  Thank you Jordan and Kyla.  Not looking forward to the drive to Utah this time for Christmas because we have Trixie and traveling with her can be such a pain. 

That was the Month of November.  I am sure there is more, but I just can't remember.  Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.  Love the Sheltons


  1. She is getting so big! what a pretty little girl!

  2. Cute family! I sure miss having you guys across the street. Thats rough about Matt's job. Hopefully things pick up. Lynlee is so big! (Even if she's small.) Glad you have a DR who will work with you. Miss Ains is a small one too, but I guess never small enough to worry about.
    Nice to have a fun, though last minute trip to Ut. I'm jealous. I SO miss Utah.
