The holidays are quickly approaching! We are busy busy busy as a family of four. Who knew another kid could make life so busy?! ;)
-Loves all things Christmas.
-Went and saw Santa at the mall. The next day we went out to eat and there was also a Santa there and he was stunned and looked at me and said," Hey mom, that Santa matches the Santa at the mall."
-Obsessed with scissors. (I know what your thinking.) He could sit and cut paper all day.
-Finally got to play in the snow cause it finally snowed!!! (It was only an inch or so but enough for a kid to have fun in it so we will take it.) He was out there for hours.
-Looks out the window constantly to see if another package came. He loves getting packages haha.
-Has become more stubborn and independent then ever. Tries our patience daily.
-Still obsessed with baby brother. And has only ever been sweet to him. (knock on wood) He always asks me if we can hold him and get him to smile. He loves watching him smile.
-Talking more then ever.
-Discovered eating his hands.
-Starting to be more squirmy. I'm not gonna be able to leave him alone on the couch or the bed much longer.
-Always tries to sit up if you lay him down anywhere. The kid has got some abs on him.
-Is very content if fed and changed and napped. I think we are officially past the colicky month he gave us. Phew.
-Has pulled a few 8 hour stretches without a peep. Most nights he sleeps 6ish straight hours and if I give him a binki he will go right back to sleep for another 2 hours or so. I'm looking much less tired. But still tired. ha.
-Doesn't need to be rocked to sleep anymore at night. He will usually fall asleep if I lay him down swaddled with a binki. Spit the binki out and be out for good on his own. (he does break out of his swaddle quite often)
-Naps are still a struggle.
-Loves his bumbo. Hates tummy time.
-Staying busy at work and going TDY often. (dislike)
-Still haven't found out about our fate for next year.
-Continues to be an amazing papa and husband. I probably count on him way too much for everything.
-Looking forward to some real snowboarding in Utah. (only 3ish more weeks!)
-Gets to speak in church again on Sunday. (2nd time since moving here. I haven't been asked once...and now I'll probably get asked since I just said that.)
-Super bummed about the RSL loss for the MLS cup.
- Starting to get the hang of this 2 kid thing. At least when I'm home all day. Going out is another story.
-Online Christmas shopping has been my friend this year.
-Looking forward to Cafe Rio in 3ish weeks.
-Also super bummed about the RSL loss for the MLS cup.
-Loved the movie Frozen.
