I got a flu shot today. My arm hurts.

It's been cold out. I broke out the winter coat. I'm pretty bummed about it.

Marc did really well on his diet last week, he's definitely craving some foods on the "no" list but he's sticking to the plan. I'm proud of him. Normally when I'm proud of him I want to do something nice... like bake him cookies, or take him out to dinner. These are obviously not good options. Maybe that's part of his problem.

I tried to take pictures of Josie for our Christmas cards. We had lighting issues... I'll try again next weekend. Marc says there's no cool way to do a "newsletter" Christmas card... when he put it that way I agree with him. I had thought for a while about writing on of those letters about what happened to us this year, because there was so much with the house and finishing my pilot license and the baby. But Marc said, "People who know us know about that stuff, people who don't know us will just think we're bragging about our awesome life." Point taken. So anyway, first attempt at the baby photo. She was in a good mood and we got some smiley happy ones but for some reason my favorites are always the absurdly ridiculous like this:

My mom does these three line newsletters. I'll send you some for inspiration. They're great.

I wanna nibble on your bebe. She makes my ovaries melt. Which is fine, because they they can't make babies.

I sorta tried, but the print came out grainy. I mean once you take a photo in poor lighting there's a limit to what can be done, am I right? there's less information present in the image, so to speak?

CUTE BABY!

My boyfriend is a) a baker, and b) not a very big eater, so I find it pointless to congratulate him with food. I've started turning to massages... I know very few people who don't like them!

That is an absurdly adorable photograph.

Seconding massage as reward. Also some chore that he usually does (vacuuming? Laundry?).

I hear you on the food as reward thing. : / Is there something he likes to go DO that he doesn't do often? Or something inexpensive that the wants but wouldn't buy himself? I would normally say a CD, but given that he's a DJ I'm guessing he buys what he wants/needs as he goes. Books? Make him a cute little card that says "Hey, you're awesome!"?

I find Christmas letters Awkward to write, precisely because I don't want to be bragging. But I like reading them. Actually a friend of mine used to send email updates every so often and I started doing the same thing. Just a "Hey, here's the highlight reel of the last 6-12 months" and I always get positive feedback on them--people want to know what's happening. People like old professors, friends we keep in passing contact with, etc.

And, as always, super cute picture of Jo!

Have you tried garage light? It's seriously amazing. The light is blocked on top, but pouring in from the open door making awesome catchlights and getting plenty of light in her eyes.

She is absoutely beautiful!!!
