The remainder of 2009

Let's see if I can remember how we spent the last couple of weeks in 2009.

On December 17 our friend Lenny's mom died. He stayed with us for a few days which absolutely thrilled James. He enjoyed having the attention of another adult! We also got snowed in with Lenny during the huge snowstorm on December 19. That was James' first real experience with snow!

On December 23 James went to the doctor's for a checkup. They said he is growing well. His stats were: 30 1/4" 19lb 15oz and his head circumference was 18". He remains at the top of his class for height...I think he was in the 95th percentile.
Of course December 25 was Christmas! We had numerous Christmas celebrations to attend. James enjoyed the people, but got overwhelmed with all the gift-opening chaos. He whined and cried some of the time but we tried to keep him happy and quiet by rocking him or letting him have his pacifier. Considering the circumstances (no nap and lots of people) he did pretty well.
During the last two weeks James has had the privilege of staying home with his daddy during Christmas break. He absolutely loves to spend time with Rod. It doesn't matter if they are apart for two minutes, the second James catches Rod in his sight a smile immediately overcomes his face.

So, that's what has been going on around here. Thanks for following our blog and we hope that you have a Happy New Year!!!

I agree, that last photo is absolutely precious. You could probably win something with that photo.
