October 7 to November 7, 2011Dear Carys,
You turned four months old, oh, about three weeks ago. And this letter is supposed to cover what happened between three and four months.
We took a second trip to Dubuque with my aunts Mary Jo (one of your many middle name namesakes) and Carolyn (another honoree - this time with the same first and middle initials). It wasn't quite as easy as it was when you were a newborn - you didn't immediately fall asleep in the car and wanted to be entertained. Entertaining a four month old for a six hour road trip? Not as easy as it might seem. It was cold and rainy, but true to the Nussrallah spirit, we went on walks anyway.
We were there over Halloween weekend and made the drive back Halloween night, so you spent your first Halloween on the road. During the day, I put you in a Halloween bib.
During Mary Jo's visit we also took you to your first hockey game, which you LOVED. I thought you might be startled by the loud noises and darkness, but you were completely enthralled...until the third period, when you zonked out despite the noise all around you.
This is a quick letter, partly because....well, if I'm being honest it's because I don't remember enough to talk about it. Everything I can think of needs to go in your five month letter. Let's not get started on how behind I am on weekly pictures. Mom fail.
I love you forever and always!
