It's been another month of living with the happiest baby ever born, our little Halle bird. It was a fun month - full of firsts! Halle celebrated her first Thanksgiving, experienced her first snow fall, and played out in the snow for the first time, and met Santa for the first time! She also did many firsts as well - getting up all all fours, sitting up in high chairs and in shopping carts, drinking out of a sippy cup, etc.
