Merry Christmas Eve!

Every Christmas Eve we go to church at St. Paul and then dinner with the family. Dinner is always vegetable soup and cornbread. Always. (I had to learn how to make vegetable soup - and I don't even really like it - that was an interesting endeavor for sure) The past two years, we hosted Christmas Eve but realized this year that our house isn't big enough to have that many people and try to manage the baby on top of that. So - back to Bill & Becky's house.

My favorite part of the church service is singing Silent Night at the end by candlelight. And I have to admit I got a little teary eyed this year. I'm not sure why - probably has something to do with it being William's first Christmas, etc, cheesey mom stuff. ;)

And he did really well during church, considering it was pretty much bedtime. He loved looking at all the people and at one point I swear he was making eye contact with Buddy, our preacher. He was a bit of a handful to keep entertained, but he didn't cry and even started cooing and laughing to delight of the sweet people in front of us. I can't wait for next year when he is a little more cognizant of what's going on. (and can sing Silent Night with us - watch out for the tears then definitely!)

So - Merry Christmas Eve! I hope you're spending it surrounded by your most favorite people!!

More Decor

This year, more than years past, I was all about making very little amount of money go very very far. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one. Which makes me even more proud of how I wrapped gifts this year. I had every thing for the gifts except tissue paper - so we did spend $2.99 on that - but everything else I already had, boxes, yarn, everything. I started in early November making the yarn poofs - all 100 of them. That was easy cheesey - just took a couple weeks. I already had the boxes - so I knew whatever we got our humongo family for Christmas would need to fit in a 6x6 box. The last part of everyone's gift came in the mail last night - so we assembly lined the boxes and got them put together pretty quickly. Oh, and the yarn was left over from when I made scarves for Christmas gifts - sure am glad I didn't let Sam talk me into getting rid of it! We decided that the boxes were pretty enough by themselves, so no wrapping paper needed, which is awesome, because I would have to buy some, and there's negative money in the gift wrap budget! ;) (houndstooth paper we bought earlier this year to make it easier to distinguish between our gifts and the ones that need to travel)

The yarn poofs make me happy and I think they're super festive.

Apparently kids now get their own tree in their own room. Not sure when this happened - because I sure didn't get my own when I was younger... And as much as I wanted to buy William a pretty little real tree and buy the decorations for it and make it super cute - there just wasn't any money for that. Then it occurred to me that he already has a tree in his room!!!! I think it's adorable and we only had to spend $3 to pick some more green ornaments.

Retraction Notice: we no longer give him rice cereal in every bottle - he liked it at the time but the next day he didn't like trying to get rid of it. Oops - not so hot on the parenting this time I guess. Good news - he decided he likes eating like a big boy with a spoon - so we're doing that instead of putting it the bottle.

Santa's Coming to Town!

Actually we went to him this time. Can't wait to have a whole slew of these to display every year!! Christmas is so much more fun and exciting with William here. Even though he has no idea what's happening - it's still so much more special. And I adore his plaid outfit. I had to talk Sam into letting me buy it two months ago, but I think it's adorable and it will make a repeat appearance Christmas Day. My kid is too cute.

Wee Little William

Now for the baby catch all.

We went to the pediatrician on Monday for his 4 month well check. And awesomeness - we got Dr Evangelist - who is not "our" doctor but is one of my most favorite. (my other favorite is another woman, who I can't remember her name, and she's pregnant and just lovely) Anyhow - I actually prefer those two to our official doctor, but anyway.

William weighed 15 lbs 2 oz (45th %) and 24.5" tall (22nd %). So he is still a little guy even though he feels like a chunk to me. ;) He's gaining about 2.5 lbs per month recently and no one seems concerned so neither am I. I kinda like having a little baby actually. And not only because it means that he's just like his parents (short, heehee). It also means that he fits in his clothes for longer - which is awesome. Though I am a little tired of looking at the same old outfits - but he will be in 6-9 month clothes by mid January I am sure. He's so short though, that the legs of all his pants are always WAY long, but it's adorable. And really doesn't matter at all because it's not like he can actually trip on them yet.

After a two week bout of not sleeping through the night, he is back to sleeping 7-7, which is awesome. We decided that he wasn't sleeping because he was sick and on Robitussin - so he napped ALL the time - seriously - like 5-6 hours every day. So that messed up his routine. He occasionally still has a little bit of a cough, but we've stopped the medicine for the most part and lo and behold - we have our sleeper back. And the best part - he must've learned something from being sick because he now takes atleast an hour nap instead of the 30 minute cat naps. Awesome.

I have discovered that we do now kinda have a schedule. It's three hours. Two hours awake and eating, one hour nap. It gets messed up sometimes, like today he slept for two and a half hours in the middle of the day, weird, but other than that it's pretty much like clockwork. I can tell when he's grumpy and needs to sleep and he usually complies. I can put him down in the vibrating pack and play a little drowsy and off he goes. Love this.

He is starting to like tummy time more now. Especially when he has his plastic ring toys to play with. He can push up and hold his head very strong and he's so cute when he does it. He also loves his toys suspended above him - whether on the playmat or on the carseat. I hung his toys so he can reach them in the carseat instead of just looking at them and errands have become much more doable now. MUCH less screaming! Such a godsend!!

He also prefers standing to sitting. He's actually always wanted to stand, even since he was a mere two months old. But now he's getting really good at it. Supporting his weight really well and sometimes even fakes having balance. It was really cute a couple weeks ago, he discovered that he could lift his legs when he was sitting or laying on his back and that's all he wanted to do. I wanted to take cute sitting 4 month pictures in the rocker and all he wanted to do was show how he could lift both his legs in the air. It's so funny when he discovers he can do new things - because that's all he will do for days and you can tell he just thinks it's the coolest thing ever.

Like recreational yelling. He figured out last week that he could string together a bunch of noises and he would just lay in his crib talking (yelling) to himself. It was really cute for the first couple times, but at 4 am it's not so adorable...

We're now giving him rice cereal in every bottle he eats and he loves it. We've tried feeding it to him with a spoon and he's still not quite ready for that yet. He has no idea what to do with it. And while it's totally unproductive feeding - it produces the most adorable pictures. He has the funniest faces and they all come out when he's eating.

He thinks it's hilarious when you say "Hey Boo Boo" (from Yogi Bear). He smiles every time. He also likes when you steal sugar from ear to ear and on his belly. Razzing his belly is sure to bring smiles and he laughs when you tickle him. He loves naked time. Such a boy. ;).

I'm trying to think if there is anything else to catch y'all up on - and I'm sure there is - but I can't think of anything else.

OH! And he's getting more and more hair - and it is definitely strawberry!! I really hope he ends up with red hair. Nothing cuter than a little redheaded boy. But I'm bias.

I Heart Christmas

Christmas is my super most favorite time of year. It's the only time we decorate the house and we go all out. (well, maybe not by some standards - but to us - we go crazy) We dug out the decorations as soon as we got back from Thanksgiving with the fam and set to figuring out where all of our 10 totes of fun would go now that we live in the smallest house we've ever had. Lucky for us, this also meant that there was absolutely no NEED to buy anything new. Sam did mention to talk me into buying a Snow Village Church that resembles our church, St. Paul Methodist, for our collection but I wouldn't authorize the purchase of the Snow Village Federal House that resembled Forest Ave. There's always next year... And we did have to buy new stockings because of the new addition to our family. But besides that, we only bought a small box of green ornaments for William's tree - I don't have a pic of that right now - he was sleeping when I went all photo Christmas crazy - but soon.

Dining Room Chandelier - last year the we hung these ornaments from the crystal chandelier - but it was hung much higher making it so the ornaments wouldn't obstruct the view of the people sitting at them table. Not the case in this house. We saw somewhere the idea of putting a wreath on the bottom on the chandelier, and since we had (several) extras thought it was worth a shot. I love it and think it will be become a new Christmas staple. I'll show you the rest of the dining room later - I was sewing all day so the rest of the room is a wreck...
Our mantle. Not quite as simple as years past and I love it. Used the extra limbs from the tree to add some dimension and then just filled in with pretty candlesticks. I had dreams of using every candlestick we own - but it was getting very symmetrical and the mantle isn't really deep enough to make it work. Filled the vases I bought last year with ornaments, filled in with beaded fruit and our silver birds - love. And I am still tickled that we have three stockings. Next year we will have them officially embroidered but I like the ribbon with the embroidery cut out for this year. Thanks be to my stepmom who has the awesome sewing machine that makes embroidery!

Our very sentimental tree. I am not a huge fan of themed trees. Though - if my parents didn't give us kids our ornaments, then I guess I would have no choice. But I love that our tree is full of ornaments from my childhood and, in the more recent years, ornaments that we have given each other. Nothing goes together and I love it!

The ornament Sam gave me this year. Technically it was the one he came home with from his work's Ornament swap party - but since he bought one for the party I think it totally counts. Especially since I also can't authorize the purchase of expensive ornaments this year.
Close up of the stockings. Sara tried to embroider the names on the stockings, but the machine isn't set up the way we needed it to - so she made our names, I cut them out of the white fabric, spray adhesived them to last years present ribbon, wrapped them around, stuck a pin in the back, and voila - loveliness.
Love my snowman and ornament trees that we got on after christmas plus employee discount from Pier 1 in college. Glad to see that atleast some of the massive amount of money I spent there has stuck around and been used.
My most favorite "Baby's First Christmas" ornament that's mine. See - sentimental trees are nice...
The three little birds are this year's ornament gifts to ourselves. At 99 cents each - I couldn't help but keep the tradition alive!

There's plenty more decorations but I have a feeling this is too long already. Next post will have baby pictures for sure for all those family members that have missed me posting them. I know I haven't posted in a week - bad blogger - consider me ashamed of myself. ;)

And I feel that I should note - that of course I love decorating for Christmas - it's kinda my thing - but what I really love about Christmas is getting together with all the family and every one puts the petty things in boxes and we have a good time. I love sitting around the island at my Dad's house with all my brothers and sisters while we cut up and laugh. Playing games, Love me some UNO, at my Mom's house is a staple - as is the red velvet cake - yum! I can't wait to have new "must do" things at our house with William. We'll probably lose the breakfast at Waffle House before we head to Bill & Becky's but I can't wait to wake up early with excitement with our son. Such a special time of year and I love spending it surrounded by my favorite people.

Four Months!!

Our sweet little boy is 4 months old and weighs a whopping 14 lbs 14 oz (and the pain in my back will prove it!) In a week and a half we will know how tall he is - I only know the weight because we are all sick and they always weigh him when we go to the doctor.

Notes of possible interest:

He has never had diaper rash. Thank goodness.

He has already has a great scar from surgery to brag about later in life.

He only gets sick when I am sick - not surprising since we spend 24 hours together.

He left colic behind only to chase it with early teething. Yay for us.

He is still not on a schedule - unless you count expected randomness. He doesn't eat as much as he should for his age and doesn't sleep enough during the day - atleast for my tastes... But he's obviously gaining weight and is usually an absolute joy - so we're chalking this one up to good parenting anyway.

He is ahead of his time as far as "What to Expect the First Year" says he should be able to do. Or maybe that's just us being proud parents - but we, of course, prefer to think of him as a genius.

He is quite the show off. He will behave like a perfect cooing angel if he knows someone, besides his parents, is watching.

He is probably one of the most well documented baby ever. We took in excess of 819 pictures of him in November. Granted, a lot of them are 50 pictures of the same "event"....

And to add to the list of pictures - William by numbers:

Very Thankful Thanksgiving

We successfully completed the annual musical houses that is Thanksgiving this year. We are officially pros at it now - 19 years for me and 6 for Sam - so it's easy cheesey at this point. Now that we live in Columbus, we always do the day of the holiday at home/go to Bill & Becky's and then make the trek to Cleveland usually the night of the holiday. This year my mom got us on Thursday night and then off to Dad's on Friday night. Then home on Sunday night. We usually try to split the last day - but little man was NOT happy about something (we never did figure out what) so that didn't happen. We even tried to leave earlier than planned because of said unhappiness - but we couldn't get him to eat enough to fall asleep so that was a lost cause. And the ride home was awful. Nothing better than driving through Atlanta holiday traffic with an inconsolable baby in the backseat. Atleast I knew to stay in the right lane so we never truly stopped and made it through the traffic jam relatively easy.

Ok - enough of the timeline...

Thanksgiving Day

I am thankful for the abundance of family. (besides that it means there are lots of people to hold the baby when I can't handle the stress of him crying anymore..) We have approximately 60 or so family members (including close extended family) and it's really great anytime we get to see them all. It was especially fun this time because Mimi & Jack (my stepmom's parents) had not met William yet and they are just the coolest grandparents ever anyhow. (no really, I kept refering to them as aunt & uncle when I was younger because they were THAT cool..heehee) anyhow - Mimi had a big time playing and holding William and I love that he has so many Great Grandparents to grow up knowing. 7 Great Grandparents to be exact. And 1 Great Great Grandmother, Mema. Though, he probably won't get the chance to actually remember her and it's really sad that he won't know how awesome she is. But atleast she got to meet him and we have great video of it - so we can show him later.

All the Rumer Kids, and a boyfriend for good measure
I am thankful for my amazing husband who just happens to moonlight as the world's best daddy too. I always knew he would be great but it really came to light when we were at the hospital having William. He really stepped up and "managed" all the family who came for the birth, and that is no small feat people! (musical holidays remember) Even in my cracked out, drugged up state I was in awe of how effortlessly he handled what could've been a sticky situation. That many people wanting to see the baby, me and everything in between and only so many people allowed in the room at any given time - it was really a recipe for disaster but he was wonderful. A really strong man and I love him for all of it. And nevermind that he puts all my pieces back together when I melt down... ;)

Thanksgiving Day 2 - with Omi
With Mimi

I am thankful for William. When he is happy he is an absolute joy. Smiles and goos and loveliness. I love when he falls asleep on in my arms. And he always wakes up happy - those early (and I do mean early - the new trend of 5:30 has got to stop) morning smiles are adorable. And he's precious when he's eating his nighttime bottle and right before you know he's done - he smiles with the bottle in his mouth and his eyes closed. And just so you know I'm not sugarcoating - Mimi asked me if I could remember life without him and my answer, to her surprise, was absolutely. I wouldn't trade my life for then - but I do definitely remember. (Give me some credit - it was literally only 4 months ago - I may have mom brain - but I'm NOT THAT bad yet)

I'm thankful for my friends. You know who you are and you know why I love you.

I am truly blessed. My new goal is to remember that when the baby is screaming. :)

I love my Daddy.

Who else would be in Columbus the next day at 8am with a smile on his face and open arms to take the screaming baby from me?! Seriously - I have the best daddy ever.

In the spirit of being honest - which y'all know that I am (seriously why sugar coat?! - it just makes me feel like a failure when I read what other people write and it's all rosy, but I guess that's on me...) - I was losing my mind. My sweet little boy has no happy median. He is either all smiles and coos or screaming bloody murder. And if said sweet little boy doesn't poop on a regular basis he is miserable, which makes my life miserable. And he didn't poop on Sunday. Not ok.

Luckily for me, I also have the best friend in the whole world, who when I called her at 10am on Monday about to have a crazy crying meltdown, she "forced" me to bring him over to her house and told me to go home and relax. I would never survive my life if it wasn't for the sixteen daily phonecalls and the spontaneous crashing her house two/three times a week. I love me some Hads. He pooped for Hadley on Monday afternoon - after she dealt with 3.5 hours of severe unhappiness. (Sorry Hads - didn't mean to scare your hubs.) And then all was right with the world. Though by that point, Sam had made me call my Dad and ask if he was available this week - so I got another two days of happy mommy time.

"Riding the horse"

He's such a great GDaddy too - he plays with William and walks him until he's blue in the face and seriously, I think he's got esp - because he always figures out exactly what's wrong with W. Though - I guess there's only so many options - so he just whittles down the list quickly.

GDaddy had him mesmerized by this toy - so cute!

The other great Daddy in my life!

I wanted in on the pleasant baby picture action too.
I'm glad I'm surrounded by wonderful people because I'm slowly losing my mind. Atleast I have them to pick up the pieces behind me.

I wanted to go to Mexico

But, alas, only Sam got to go. He called me at 4:00 on Tuesday and "asked" if it would be ok if he went to Mexico on an emergency business trip. I, being the amazing wife and mother that I am, said of course - it's for your career - absolutely. Go be the TSYS rockstar. It wasn't even his client that needed all the help. So - the next morning he headed up to the airport and left me at home with the 3 month old sweetheart/monster.

Wednesday was easy cheesey. William was in a perfect mood. He ate, slept, played exactly on schedule and we had a big time. Then THURSDAY came.... He cried and screamed and then repeated that ALL DAY. I really thought I was going to lose my mind. I thought he had an ear infection, I thought he might be teething, I think I finally landed on that he just wanted to make my life miserable because I had no one to hand him off to. Oh - did I mention that he chose these two nights to not sleep? Yeah - that REALLY was not helping anything. I have not been the one to get up in the middle of the night to feed him because I have an amazing husband who values his life and my happiness - so this was not good. AND To top all of this off - William insisted on being held and walked all day and night. Little man is heavy for being under 50 percentile and my arms and back hurt. Hurt might be the wrong word - I needed a serious deep tissue, please find my bones and make me feel better massage to counteract the pain...

I (we) managed to survive until Friday. We went to the park with Hadley & Robbie because we both needed some fresh air to make it through our lives and when we got back to her house - he had pooped!! I have never been so excited to see nasty brown stuff in all my life. Turns out little man was pissed off because he hadn't gone in 2.5 days!!! Good thing ear drops aren't deadly if a kid doesn't have an ear infection....just saying. ;) So Friday was infinitely better. He ate, slept and played just like he was supposed to.

Funny - Hadley came over with a movie Friday night after she dropped Robbie off at Honey's (her mom - don't you want to be called Honey by your grandkids!! love!!). I made teriyaki chicken, but I cooked it on the wrong burner - so there were cold spots. Sweet hadley said hers was completely warmed through...I'm not so sure. and then we put the movie in - Management with Jennifer Aniston. Yeah - don't waste your time. We were exhausted and way too tired to put up with a bad movie. We watched for 28 minutes, stared at my sad DVD collection and decided that we were too tired to care about watching a movie and really just wanted to go to bed. We made the executive decision to stay in living room until 9:00 so we didn't seem SO lame and then she left and I went to bed. haha!!

Ok - Sam was supposed to be back at home by 2:00 on Saturday. But he "misplaced" a piece of paper from immigration and they wouldn't let him leave the country without it. Problem - his flight left at 7:30 and immigration dept. didn't open until 8:00. ugh - that meant I had to survive another ENTIRE day all by myself. I wasn't upset - just disappointed... (ha - totally pulling that one out of the "mom book") Anyhow. He finally made it back at 8:30 that night. Which was perfect timing because W woke up from his spontaneous 3 hour nap 15 minutes later and I'm not sure I would have been able to physically lift him out of the crib....

In summary - I made it 4 days by myself and the munchkin. Pretty proud of that. Though - I did fantasize about baskets, bows and doorsteps....yes, that's brutal honesty for ya. Enjoy. When you have kids - you'll think about it too. Promise. :)

Glad I got it out of the way though - because Sam is lobbying for a week long trip to Ireland and it's good to know that I can survive. Even if I can't stand up straight.

OH - The M&Ms!!! Because he insisted on being held/walked Wednesday & Thursday I only ate M&Ms for literally almost 48 hours. I would grab a handful every loop around the house when I passed the candy dish. So it's good to know that you can subsist on only chocolate. I haven't gotten on the scale to see what it cost me but I'm still alive so I think that counts for something.

Today was William's Baptism. He was incredibly fussy all morning. Screaming fussy. We were really worried that he was going to continue all the way to the church - but luckily he settled down and even took a nap until right before it was time to go up. Thank goodness! He did so good!! A little upset at the water but the pastor was really good with him. (he has a seven month old baby girl - so he knows all about jiggling and patting the butt!!) I almost cried as I watched him walk William down the aisle while the church sang Jesus Loves Me. So sweet - but I held it together. ;)

I ended up having to leave the service immediately after the baptism. The good effects of the nap were wearing off and William was getting antsy and hungry. Oh well.

Then we went to Bill & Becky's for lunch with everyone. It was so good and nice to spend time with all the friends and family who came down for the occasion. And the food. was. so. good. Much better than M&M's - I'll fill ya in later on that. ha!

Enjoy the pictures - he was precious! (Oh and Hadley & Bobby are the godparents - that's why they're up at the front with us..just fyi)

He was starting to cry just a touch...
Getting baptized.
Walking the aisle during Jesus Loves Me
Family & Friends outside the church
My handsome family.
Thank you to everyone who came and traveled to be here for us and for William. And thank you to my in-laws for hosting the lunch so we could all get just a little more time together. It means so much to us! We have the best friends and family!! Much love to y'all!!

Enjoying the Weather

The weather was too gorgeous not to go out and play. And William is too cute not to bring the camera along. My mother-in-law says he is the most/best documented baby ever. I think she's teasing us about taking hundreds of pictures every month - but it's so easy to go "overboard" with the SLR. I personally don't think we take enough pictures...just saying.

Who needs sleep...

...when you could be sewing!! It has become a theme - I finally get up the courage and materials to tackle a new sewing project and can't sleep through Friday night to start on it on Saturday. So I get my butt out of bed at 11:30 and get started. It's kinda ridiculous but I actually really enjoy the quiet uninterrupted time. Project this weekend was window treatments for our bedroom. We recently moved all the furniture around and it's so much better now. It's never my first choice to put the bed in front of a window and we gave the big wall a good try for 5 months (wow - we've lived here that long! time flies!!) but there's so much more space for walking now. Plus - you aren't accosted by the bed when you first walk in the door which is always a good thing.

So yeah. I had the fabric - we had bought it on sale right before we moved (and then two months later it went on crazy sale - but I was so pregnant and miserable and saving for baby that I didn't buy anymore - stupid stupid girl) anyway... We just wanted two panels, one width, no reason for them to be lined because the window faces an 8 foot fence and gets very little sun exposure (I might add it later though....much later) And to save on the cost of hardware - which can seriously add up for the good stuff - we are going to make a cornice board, paint it and add pretty moldings to cover the less expensive hardware. I feel genius for thinking of this. $4 in rods and the panels are up! Granted, we still have to buy a piece of plywood, paint, and moldings to finish the look (and get new bedding and make an upholstered headboard) but the cost for this is WAY under $100!! Well - actually I think it's $84 - but still. The wholesale labor cost for a one width panel is practically that much. And it's worth it because I'm sure they are sewn much better than these - but for all intents and purposes - I'm tickled pink with ours. I can't wait until we get it all done, piece by piece. I'm hoping that by this time next year it'll be done. Though I have a feeling Sam is going to convince me to spend the money much sooner... ;)

ignore the lack of picture quality - I took this on the iphone...
also, feel free to ignore the state of disaster of our bedroom...

On that note - we have decided to build some serious shelving for our office. Covering an entire wall around the window and Sam is even going to turn the corner and make a desk for me too. CANNOT WAIT!!! It's going to be a storage masterpiece!! Sam is also hoping this happens sooner rather than later. Why can't Lowe's just let us walk in and grab what we need - it would be so much easier to do projects if we didn't have to PAY for them! :)

It's kinda silly though - one of the most heard sentences in our house is "add it to the list". This "list" is getting stupid long of things we want/want to do to the house at a much quicker rate than things are coming off. Oh well. Atleast we won't be moving in 7 months like every other year! haha

I feel like there was a lot of project rambling....sorry!

Not cold enough for snow..

William was the cutest snowman for Halloween!! We went trick or treating with my best friend Hadley who has a 2 year old (he was a very cute green dragon)

Cute Kid Pics

In no particular order...

Sitting in the pack n play - technically he fell over three seconds later - oops!

Not so sure about tummy time right now

Daddy helping him work on his core. :)

Having a conversation with Mommy.

Chilly mornings require a hat!!

So he's recovering well from his surgery and it looks to be healing well. Nothing unusual going on - getting up once a night to change his diaper which he has also decided means we have to feed him. Luckily for Sam this is turning out to be the easiest feeding of the day - unlucky for me - I get to argue over eating all day long. Oh well. Hopefully we will be back to sleeping through the night after a follow up with the surgeon on Thursday. He's starting to refuse to take a nap longer than 30 minutes which is making me a little crazy because there's lots of things I'd like to get done - but about half the time he's happy about being awake and it's fun play time. The other half he's screaming and nothing makes him happy but y'know - we won't go into that anymore.

He always gives Sam a really big smile, even if he's eating, when Sam gets home. I'm sure that makes Sam's day. It's really cute.

12 weeks old today!!

Why has modern medicine not fixed this yet?

Colic has returned and it's worse than ever. Specifically - from 8pm - 8am. It's going to kill me. It might also take my dad with it, who was nice enough to come down and let me sleep an entire night. Seeing that I had only slept 4-5 hours in two days...and 4 of those was in one night. Just saying.

He's almost 3 months, he's almost 3 months, he's almost 3 months.

I hope it's like magic. November 3 could not come soon enough!

(and y'all know I'm not big on shirts that say things - but I genuinely enjoyed putting him in this one yesterday - so appropriate!)
