November has been busy.  I think this is the longest amount of time I've ever let pass between blog posts here.  As I sit on the couch typing, Ellie is demonstrating the signs for various letters as she "reads" The Very Sleepy Sloth to Caroline.  Caroline is trying to sleep (on the floor, at Ellie's insistence) while Ellie shoves a book in her face to show baby sister the sloth.

My weekends have been full of photography and editing, my weekdays surprisingly full as well.  The passage of over four years means I forgot how long everything takes with a newborn in tow!  And I feel like a first time mom all over again - a mom with less appointments for my baby, but also surprises - a baby who nurses all the time, who holds her head up, who outgrows clothes!

My two girls love each other so obviously already.  Jealously issues have been pretty minimal, and we've had a few conversations that include "Only GROWN-UPS pick up Caroline," and "You are NOT a grown-up!"

We are coming up on one of my favorite times of year.  I love making the Christmas season magical for Ellie and I look forward to seeing Caroline's reactions... mostly to the lights, because she'll only be three months old at Christmas.  The girls' stockings arrive tomorrow and I've been editing Christmas card photos early in the mornings, all to the tune of Christmas music.

With weekends so full of photo shoots, I was also lucky to get away for a bit on Sunday with my sweet intern to head to Dumbarton Oaks.  Dumbarton Oaks doesn't allow professional or commercial photography, so the two of us went out with a goal of practicing with our zoom lenses and enjoying the last nice day of fall.

From same spot, 300 mm.

Some fun with the timer.  We didn't bring a tripod.


Also, lately?  Christina was in town and we made a gingerbread turkey instead of our normal gingerbread house.  Ellie has been working on her fine motor skills.  And my friend Stephanie, who (literally) wrote the book on Down syndrome pregnancy is in town.

What are you excited about for the upcoming holidays?  I've been pinning and recipe testing.
