We had a good holiday sharing it with our new families. We were unbelievably exhausted because Jr. had not been sleeping good. We were just beat to the bone, and up till about 4 on Christmas eve. I was actually starting to feel negative towards everything, even Jr. It scared me, and so I decided to do something about it. I've got Jr. on a more structured schedule--sleep, eat, play--all day. He stays on this routine until bedtime. I put him down at 7:30 or 8pm. He'll sleep for 3 hrs., then I feed him and put him right back down. If he cries, we just let him cry. It's hard to let him cry, especially when it is going for about 30 minutes but once he's done he'll sleep about 8 hours. Last night he slept for 9 hours. I wanted to jump up and dance I was so proud of him! Actually, I just laid in bed and enjoyed waking up to a quiet house. Happy holidays, my favorite gift is having a happy sleeping baby!

My hubbs had the wonderful idea of going to cut down a tree every year for the holidays. I love family traditions, and so we did. We found the perfect tree, came home and decorated to the taste of hot coco while the fire cracked. Dangling in the lights is Jr.'s s first Christmas ornament.

So I've been having trouble keeping up with the blogging but I'm also having trouble keeping up with showering! Cute babies still like to poop and pee everywhere. You'll have to excuse the piles of laundry and b.o. I'm hoping Jrs cuteness will distract visitors from what's really going on here. :)

I attempted to dress up for Thanksgiving a couple weekends ago. It was really tiring to travel and visit both families, but we thought it was important to share the holiday with our loved ones. It's great having new family members and I think we are both lucky that we actually really like each others family.
