Merry Christmas!

Brendan has been so much fun. I just have to share. This morning Jeremy decided to feed him some applesauce while I was making breakfast. The entire time he was trying to feed him he wanted to watch me. It was so cute. My little man wanted to watch me cook. I HAD to take a picture of him.

This afternoon Jeremy took a nap and Brendan and I were a little bored. Okay. Well I was a little bored. So we decided to make some christmas cookies. He loved it. He was a big help. :)

That has been our Christmas Eve so far! We are enjoying him so much and wanted to share. I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Monday, December 21, 2009 hair. a few months ago I thought having bangs was a fabulous idea. I researched pictures of celebs that had bangs and skipped merrily to my hairstylist. For a few weeks I loved them. I thought they were so cute but eventually they began to bug me. I tried to refresh them but just having bangs in my face became more of a hassle than what it was worth. Flash forward to December. I thought for some reason my bangs would just super grow back to normal. Not the case since preggo hormones are all gone. The only hairstyle I have been able to do is the "pull back to one side with a bobby pin". If I put it in a headband little hairs stick up all around like when I was in elementary school. Ugh. Anyone have any ideas on how to style semi-grown out bangs?? seriously I'm in need of a overhaul.

Things I didn't realize before having a kid.

Sleeping in? Ha....

The power of coffee.

My new bedtime.

My new wake up time.

Everything is loud and will wake him.

I now dislike restaurants that do not have a changing place.

My dogs seem to be always on a mission to sabotage nap time.

My body will never be the same. I seriously thought things would go back to normal!

You don't need a huge diaper bag. It will just get in the way.

Your patience for people who waste your time will be nonexistent.

You will get poo'd on and will still want to kiss the person who did it.

Merry Christmas!

It has been such a great year. I can't believe how fast it went. I am so thankful for my family, friends, and that Brendan is healthy! For those of you who haven't heard Brendan had a wonderful report from Dr. Skiast! We went back to LA for a visit and they did an ultrasound. We were totally prepared to hear the next tests that he was going to have to undergo. However, when they did the ultrasound his kidney dilation was down. The doctor said it was "miraculous"! We were so happy!! All plans for another surgery were put on hold. What a relief!

We are spending our first Christmas with Brendan here in Santa Maria. Jeremy has been away for work so it will be nice to be altogether. Brendan is 5 months and weighs a whopping 17lbs. He has been rolling over and somewhat sitting by himself. He is still a little wobbly on the sitting part.

The other day I was bored so Brendan and I had a Christmas photo shoot in the living room. :) I will leave you with a few. Enjoy! I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!!

The best caption for the photo came from Aunt Megan:

"You wanna buy tickets to the gun show"

Such a Ladies man...

...and he's spent.
