Yesterday Autumn had a doctor's appointment and got shots. And today she's been about to drive me up the wall!!! She won't let me put her down even for a second. If I try to she screams and screams and SCREAMS. Thankfully she just fell asleep--I'm hoping that she'll stay that way for a while. Today has been extremely frustrating, since I've been trying to get things done around the house, and most things just aren't possible shen you're trying to carry around a fussy baby. I'm so glad Matt didn't work very late today, because if I hadn't had someone else to hand her off to for a while I think I would have just started screaming too.

Made sour cream cookies this evening (while Matt was holding Autumn). Funny 'cause I don't think I've ever actually made them before. They're my dad's favorites, but Aunt Becky is always the one who makes them. They were really easy and Matt liked them a lot. Though he wouldn't believe me at first that they really were made with sour cream.

Oh, and the doctor's appointment--at five months Autumn is 16 pounds 6 ounces and 26 inches long. And we've actually started on solids now--just rice cereal. But it goes into the mouth and comes right back out again. And by the time we're done, she's managed to get it up her nose, in her eyebrows, and under her arms. Still can't figure out exactly how she does it, but it gets there.

I've got to go get a few things done, while Autumn's asleep.

I've got a few pics, but they'll have to go up later.

The four month shots were the worst for Nora. They came right at Thanksgiving, too. It wasn't a fun time. It'll get better :)
