Sweets from the Week.

A bunch of good stuff from this past week.

1.  We started using our pellet stove that we had put in over the summer.  At first I was skeptical about it, but my heart is warmed, literally, by its glow and wonderful, bone-warming heat just like our wood stove in the cabin!

Our dogs love the pellet stove, too!

2.  I had my 6 week postpartum checkup this week.  I'm officially out of the grasps of pregnancy.  Now I have a whole slew of weight to lose... more on that in another post.  

3.  My favorite outfit for Emily had her mistaken as a boy five different times.  Yeah, I dress her like a boy sometimes, but I am okay with that. 

My little ham bone cheesing for the camera -- or, well, the silly faces I was making.
4.  I have finally beginning to distinguish what Emily's cries mean!  For the life of me they all sounded the same until this past week.  Perhaps she is just becoming more articulate. 

5.   My husband gave up and shaved his mustache.  For a brief three weeks he grew a mustache in celebration of "Stachetober", which is an obscure firefighter tradition around here where they grow mustaches in the month of October.  Weird, I know. 

I managed to catch a couple photos of him with the mustache, though!  ;-)
6.  I went back to work (just a day and a half this week) and it wasn't horrible and I didn't cry leaving Emily at home, but lord was it awesome to see her face when I came back home.  

7. The foliage is still hanging around, barely.  Its making my camera and I happy.

8.  I bought Emily her Halloween costume!  Well, its more of a couple pieces that go with the outfit she'll wear.  Either way, its adorable and will later on double as photo props.

9.  I ordered an iPhone 4S.  It should be here sometime in November...  until then I excitedly wait!  Do you have one?  If you do please tell me some good things about the phone!

10.  And here is a rainbow I saw the other day...

Nice post! Lots of positive stuff. I love the outfit and the rainbow. The fire with the pup in front was great, too!

I got the 4s as my first iPhone. I have been having fun playing with the camera and all the different photo apps. Really enjoy your blog and watching Emily grow and change. Thanks for sharing.

What a wonderful week you've had!!! I really enjoyed reading about everything. Miss Emily is absolutely beyond adorable! Hubs and I butt heads about my having a Smartphone... basically he says I don't need it, and I say I do. Alas, I don't have one.

Love the moose outfit! My little one gets mistaken for a boy as well. I have to remind people that little girls love blue dinosaurs, too :)

Wow, look at that rainbow! I love the moose outfit, adorable. You'll love the iphone, for the camera alone, but it has all kinds of toys to help out. I have the 4, not the new 4s, but I'm still a big fan.

I just found your site tonight (from, I think) and HAD to comment on the 'stache. My husband hadn't shaved the day my labor was induced, and obviously was busy the next few days. Then it was A Thing. He called it the No Sex Beard and that thing grew for 8 weeks. Finally, I told him the name was a self-fulfilling prophecy; as long as he had it, I sure as hell wasn't sleeping with him, ha ha. Your baby is precious! If you're having a hard time, just count down to about 11 weeks... it just gets easier from there :)

I dress Ella like a boy sometimes too. Especially in my alma mater's clothes. Oh well. I think it's adorable:)
