Some moments in November:
The fall festival at our school was at the beginning of November. The PTO did a great job organizing everything and the kids had a lot of fun there.
Vada Belle trying on her dance outfit for The Nutrcacker, and had to try her headpiece on Baby Felix. Oh the joys of having three older sisters!
I love having these lunch dates:
I love how babies hold your hand while nursing!
November was a rough month for Felix. I took him to the doctor because he was running a fever and sounded terrible. His eyes were beginning to stay matted shut and he wasn't nursing well at all. The doctor said it was a cold and I asked what else could I possibly do because I was already doing the humidifier, the saline drops and suctioning out his nose, holding a warm washcloth on his eyes, etc. The doctor said there really wasn't much more I could do and that we would just have to let it run its course. A few days later I got so worried about him that I ended up taking him to the ER. They did a test and unfortunately he had RSV. He was so sick and there were many nights that I didn't sleep much at all because he sounded terrible and I was so worried about him. Thankfully the chest x-rays came back clear but he did end up with an ear infection that he had to be treated for not long after he tested positive for RSV.
Even though our kids have their own beds, you would never know since they all still pile together in one bed. I love that they love each other so much.

Every year we let each kid pack their own shoebox for Operation Christmas Child. The kids love picking out their presents and praying for the child that will receive their box. Then each kid writes a letter, tapes a picture on the box, and then they traced their handprint on the inside of the lid and wrote, "Put your hand in mine and we will pray together."
Baby Felix turned 4 months old on November 29th. He is rolling, laughs a lot, and still doesn't sleep through the night! At his four month check up (which was on December 1st) he weighed 11 lbs. 11 oz. and was 25 inches long. We just love this little one so!
