Merry Christmas


Gavin 290

Hey everyone. Hope everyone's Christmas was wonderful. Mine was fabulous. Check out the pics on here to see some of the pics I've uploaded already. In this pic, my uncle Tom is holding Gavin. Uncle Tom is the DR. in the family, my (and everyone else's) pediatrician. He's wonderful.

Anyways, I ate too much.. WAY too much and then managed to fall down the damn stairs at my parents. Thank God I wasn't carrying Gavin. I'm sore still today, and that was Sunday. Sucks. I got to my dad's house on Christmas day, and there were ladders out, propped on the house. My dad does construction so I'm guessing that he got up on the roof for my little sisters and stomped around a little. He did that for us when we were small. It was great. We ran in and were freaking out because Santa was on the roof. I asked my dad if he was up banging around for the girls and he wouldn't answer. Oh well. It was fun.

I got a candle that smelled like Chocolate Chip Cookies so I had to make cookies yesterday. They were very yummy.

OMG a friend of mine just popped into the office. I haven't seen her in a while. She lives by where I work but hell, she's got 4 kids and works about an hour south of here. Her husband works an hour west of here so we get very little time to talk let alone see each other. Very exciting. We're trying to get together to hang out this week. We'll see. It's hard to get together sometimes.

So that about covers everything. I hope..... Talk to everyone later.

Happy 4 month birthday Gavin!!!!

Happy 4 month birthday to my sweet little boy. All this means is that I can say he's one month older. I haven't gotten a full nights sleep in one month longer. Actually last night wasn't bad. He decided to fall asleep after I fed him his dinner (green beans and sweet potatoes) and bottle and I couldn't wake him up for anything until like 10:30. When he finally woke up enough to eat his nighttime bottle, he was AWAKE and wanted to play. Not too bad though. We played for a little while and then I put him in his bed, turned on the mobile, and that was it. I didn't hear a peep out of him. When I heard the mobile turn off in the monitor, I was listening intently for the whines that would surely follow, but they didn't. I got up to check, he was out cold.... little hands in front of his face. It was cute. I didn't want to take a picture though.... my luck I would have woken up the little prince. This morning he was wide awake at 5:30. Okay, well, to be fair, he kind of woke up at 4:30, and I brought him in bed with me so that I could hopefully persuade him to sleep until 6. Wrong. I woke up to him hitting me in the head like "Wake the hell up mom!!" I got up, fed him and then woke up husband to watch him so I could go to work. Husband was pissed that he was wide awake so damn early in the morning. Oh well. I'd rather have him wide awake at like 6, take a morning nap, eat lunch, take another nap, then be up until about 8 and then sleep for the night. We'll see how well it works. Maybe it's about time for his sleep to shift. All I know is that last night, I was getting yelled at by him for not scooping the sweet potatoes in fast enough. He likes those apparently. Well, he likes almost anything I'm giving him right now.

I'm taking him to see Santa tonight. I need to put him in his little 'Baby's first Christmas' outfit too. We're going to get our tree on Saturday and then I'll decorate the house and everything all at once. I'm starting to feel Christmasy, but it's been work. It used to be so magical when I was a kid. For the past few years I've barely even celebrated Christmas, but this year I HAVE to. I feel like I have to try to recreate the magic for Gavin. This years isn't so bad, but next year, I'll have to be more on top of things than I was this year. And I'll have to be Santa too. Jeez. It's crazy how you go from completely unresponsible for anyone other than yourself, to being Santa, The Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and solely responsible for this little life. It's quite overwhelming if you think about it all at once.

Alright, well, I should really get back to work. I am sorry for not updating recently. I'm working on it.

Happy Friday!!!



Just wanted to pop in and add some more peekchurs for everyone. I took most of these just recently.




These are from Thanksgiving at my parents house. One is of 2 of my 3 sisters, the youngest sister is Sammie and the other is Pookie.







Gavin playing quietly by himself. Or well, I was taking pictures, but he didn't care. Just in case I ever mention the toy between his legs, this is what I mean.

Have a great weekend everyone!!!! And don't ride the dog too often!!!
