When I feel like it's time for me to make a blog post, I get out the camera and take some. Except for today, because Hayden is sleeping and Jordan is occupied, so I'm not disturbing them with the camera. And I have a few I can share anyway.
So, Christmas is RIGHT AROUND the corner!! I cannot wait!! Jordan is really into it this year and it's going to be SO fun on Christmas morning to watch her take it all in! We finished the majority of our shopping the Friday before Hayden came, so that is a relief, we just have a couple more things to pickup, which we're doing tomorrow, and then we're going to visit Santa. Jordan talks about Santa, she calls him "Ho Ho." She talks about him bringing her presents and a BIKE...yah...anyway. So I've been telling her she is going to go see him and sit in his lap. She says she will, but I have a sneaking feeling it won't be that easy. We'll see. I will take pictures of that!
Hayden is coming out of his newborn-ness. He's staying awake more and becoming much more alert. He is a pretty easy going baby, but lately has begun to have a real fussy spell around 6-8pm every night. It is strange, but he is a baby!
I go back to work in 3 1/2 weeks. Ugh! In some ways I am ready and in others I wish I never had to go back again! I do miss my people, a lot and I'm thankful that in today's economy and state of things that I have job security.
Okay, so here's a few pictures to share--
(this was a shot I got during our "Christmas pictures shoot"--more of those later)
This is Mema and Jordan and Brandon. They probably sat in her lap for 20 minutes while she read to them...it made for super sweet picture that I will undoubtedly print and fame for her!
What I didn't get a picture of was yesturday....she wanted to go outside, it was around 9am. I thought it was cold outside so I told her no, that it was too cold. She was only wearing a diaper around the house at this moment. She proceeded to get her big poofy pink coat and her slippers on....nothing else...and said she was going outside. I told her no...and left the room for a second. I heard the door open and close...which she often does just opens and closes it without going out...but I knew she was wanting out so I walked back in to make sure she hadn't escaped...and she had. She was standing at the swing in nothing but house slippers, a diaper and her big poofy pink coat. It warranted a picture, but I was too worried about someone calling DHS on me to grab the camera, lol.
