Clark's Trip to China for Tessa

Sisters Ready for Church

Being the highly-intelligent people we are, we’ve (finally) concluded that Tessa is definitely teething big time! Celia came to us a bit older, with a mouthful of teeth, and never really suffered with teething pain, so it took us awhile to figure this one out! In a lot of ways, we feel like first-time parents, as Tessa is younger and smaller than Celia and more baby-like. We can’t just leave her in a standing position against the sofa–she’ll tip or collapse. Sometimes she’ll still tip while sitting, and other times she’s definitely a two-hand hold.

Clark is transferring old video from tape to DVD, and it’s been really fun to see Celia chatting and moving when she was just home. Celia’s enjoying it too.

Tonight Celia gets to spend the night at Grandma’s along with a cousin or two, so she’s anxious for school to get out today so she can get over there! We’re heading to my mom’s tomorrow for Thanksgiving, and I’m already laughing at how full our trunk will be of food, gear, baby stuff! We’ll see if Tessa naps there.

Celia says that Friday’s visit to the circus is a family “custom”, and she’s right–she’s been to the circus every year except one since she was 3. This time it’s a Daddy-Daughter outing, along with a friend and her Dad. She’ll have a blast. Then it’s over to Aunt Colleen & Uncle Paul’s to meet the other cousins, Christina, Scott, Matt, and Darcy. Tessa will enjoy the attention.

I was getting lots of encouragement last night from a certain sister to post more pictures, so here are a few more. Since we’ve mostly been at home, on the blanket in the living room, I’m not shooting a ton of pictures. Maybe it’s because I am on the floor, the camera is way over there, and it’s hard to get up off the floor! It *is* harder to get off the floor this time around…5-1/2 years is a long time!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We are certainly thankful for our Thanksgiving blessings and thank God for every good thing He brings to us, deserving or not (mostly not).

    Don’t feel like you’re slow about the teething. We were the same way – and Annalee was even holding a freezer-style teething ring at placement. Nonetheless, we didn’t figure it out for two days. So, I’d say you’re in good company!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Many blessings!

    Beautiful new photos of Celia and Tessa. They both look so happy and content. It must have been one of the best Thanksgivings ever for all of you 🙂

    Sadie and I were enjoying your new pictures this morning. Sadie was asking if Tessa was in China at the hotel but I reminded her that she is now home with her family. Can’t wait to meet her – so adorable.
