The Christmas spirit

Is definitely alive in this house!

About 2 weeks ago, I received a text message from "Santa" saying Zachary would be receiving a gift in the mail. I was very puzzled but went with it (even though in the back of my mind, I was questioning the safety of this mystery gift). Much to my surprise, "Santa" was actually a very generous mom from my online moms group. Zachary opened his gift today and it was the cutest little screen printed onesie.

Earlier in the week, he received another pretty awesome gift - a leap frog octopus that sings and counts from my awesome labor buddy and her daughter (also from my online mom group). People are so incredibly generous!

Curtis and I have spent most of the week working on Christmas crafts. I made our stockings, a snowman onesie for Zac, and a card tree. We also made a makeshift mantle for or stockings to hang from. It has been a busy week!

My MIL and SIL are also in town for Christmas... It's the first time they have met Zac. MIL and I don't get along very well (that's a whole other post) so I'm really hoping there is no drama this week.

Clay and Alex will be here on Thursday and I cannot wait... This will be our first Christmas with them, as well as Zachary's first Christmas! Soooo exciting! I love Christmas time!!

Weekend recap

Nothing too exciting around here this weekend... That is, of course, if you don't think a baby rolling over for the first time is exciting ;) Best part? We caught it on video! (

He has been so stubborn about this but he finally rolled yesterday afternoon from back to belly. He still won't roll belly to back... He just gets mad and screams.

I did finally get all my Christmas cards addressed tonight... I swear, I send more and more cards out every year!

Shots and Snow

That has been my day.

Zachary had his 4 month check up today and he did SO well! I love after lunch appointments... it went so fast! He weighs 14lbs, 2oz and is 24.5" long. He didn't even flinch with the first shot and didn't cry with the second until after she was done... I think she just hurt his feelings more than hurt him. Poor baby :(

Shortly after we got home, Curtis called and said for us to stay home because the snow was coming. I looked outside and thought he was making it up but sure enough, about 10 minutes later, it started sleeting. I got all excited for Zachary's first snow (not that he will remember) then it snowed for about 5 minutes. I was disappointed.

About 11pm, we started getting BIG flurries and they were/are falling FAST! But of course, Zac was already in bed :(

 I can't wait to see what we wake up to in the morning!

I need a boat

If we get much more rain, that'll be the only way I'm able to leave my house. It has rained nonstop for 2 days!

Yesterday was a horribly, craptastic day between a cranky teething baby and a cranky sleepy mama. He fussed all day and my counter got a breastmilk bath... I just love wasting that stuff. But, today has already been a much better day - even with all the rain!

Zachary went to his first Christmas parade on Saturday... He loved all the bright lights until he passed out at the end. He missed Santa :(
