Well, I took the plunge. I upgraded the blog to the new beta (I'm a trend setter, what can I say).
On the family front things are going well. We tried an experiment with Emily to see what would happen with her sleeping in the port-a-crib. It worked ok. Some nights were better than others (we only tried it for a couple of hours each night. Last night we decided we'd just do the normal crib all night, she slept much better.
Eli and I got the Christmas lights up on the house yesterday afternoon (no he didn't get to get on the roof with me much to his chagrin).
We continued the seasonal activity of raking leaves.
Emily continues to work on sitting up (we have to help her get in position but she'll stay put long enough to take a picture). She's decided she prefers milk to solid food. We're still working on convincing her otherwise.
I'll try to get some pictures up tonight.
Edit: Yea for blogger, the beta publishes much better than the original one. Hopefully the same is true for photos, I've been having lots of problems with those lately.
