It was a Merry Christmas

We made a quick trip to our parent's houses for Christmas.  We enjoyed getting ready for Santa's arrival, Max was definitely into it this year and could hardly wait for Santa to come down the chimney at Grandma and Grandpa's.  He made sure that nobody would be lighting a fire on Christmas Eve! 
 Much to our surprise, Max was very methodical as he opened his gifts taking each toy out of his stocking, playing with it and then would dive back in a bit later to find something else.  He was the same way opening presents and even used scissors to cut the wrapping paper!  What a guy.  I hope everyone had a great day - thanks to Santa and all his elves for spoiling us again this year.

T'was the night before Christmas

Max has asked for this poem at bedtime the past few nights.  Here is his rendition.

Another Bump

Yep!  Almost 7 months - surprise!
I have neglected to take belly shots this time around...sorry baby #2, but the novelty has worn off.  Max took this photo of me one afternoon, it must have been a number of weeks ago as I can no longer zip this coat up.  We are having a girl, which is delightful news, it will be interesting to see how this little one differs from Max's personality.  We have been discussing this lately - he is such a good little fellow, will we be blessed with the same easy-going nature for the second child?  Not counting on it, but it would be nice...little baby, are you listening?
I have been feeling good, similar to the last pregnancy and so far no issues - in fact I just returned from a trip to Asia and got along just fine.  Happy to get back and get in the swing of things for Christmas.  After the holidays we've got more house work planned to get ready for this little peanut, I'm excited to plan another little nursery.  March 1st, you will be coming quickly!
