BUSY should be my new name. I don't know where the last 2 weeks have gone. I can't believe Christmas is almost here and I still have so much to do. I keep trying to think up where I've been wasting my time, but I haven't had any time to waste.
Max is getting bigger everyday! He's started smiling and he now sleep through the night for the most part. The only problem is his night starts before my night so we're up at 6 everyday. He's a good sleeper, but he is not a happy baby when he is awake. I'm glad my second baby was fussy and not my first. I have a lot more patience and understanding this go around. Doesn't mean I am glad he's fussy! I think he is just has a little colic, but he really isn't as bad as some babies I've heard. And he still sleeps a lot so we don't deal with the fussiness all that much.
Gavin is keeping me running. He has reverted a bit on his potty training this last week but has been dry for the last 3 days so I think we're back on track. I hope so anyway. THAT was actually really frustrating to me.
They released the Primary Presidency in our ward which means I am sad :( It really didn't hit me all last week until yesterday when it was all over. I was WAY more emotional than anyone ever needs to be, especially me because I am NOT that emotional. I'm thankful for the time I got to serve in the Primary organization and very thankful for the wonderful ladies I got to serve with. I don't think there was a better group of gals I could have spent all that time with.
Here are a few pictures to show some of what we've been up to...
Thanksgiving at Gramma Kim and Grandpa Al's
LOTS of playtime!
Lots of baths!
Baby Aly was born and we spent time visiting with her!
Lots of napping (well at least for Max!)
Smith Cousin Christmas party
And all 3 new babies together for the first time (I'm the fat one on the left....)
I took the kids out shopping today...yea, crazy! Max slept the whole time, but as we were getting to our neighborhood he decided to wake up and scream. I got Gavin out of the car and he was already looking pretty sleepy (he's gotten up extra early today) and I was getting excited that I might get to nap today (I got up even earlier than him!)I hurried and fed Max and Gavin never came up the stairs. This is what I went down to find....
Note the box of cookies to the right and the slightly chocolately mouth...there was a cookie in his hand too :)
