The End of The Year

Being a new mom (again) I have been terrible at trying to keep up this blog. Our little man has been pretty high maintenance, but seems to be improving daily. The colic is reduced/gone, we still have a fussy period in the evening. The last two nights he has slept......11 1/2 hours!!! YEA~
Now I just have to sleep that whole time too, instead of waking up every 3 hours like we have been for the last 3 months.
He is getting 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 teaspoons of food in each bottle and eats 1 tablespoon of food by spoon once in the morning and once at night. This child is definately ready for real food.
Napping is still hit or miss, sometimes he sleeps for 45 min and sometimes for 3 hours. It is either in his crib or his swing. Hopefully, this will work itself out too.
He has been smiling on a regular basis and almost laughing out loud.
Colt and I went to Michigan the week before Christmas while Daddy went to Las Vegas for work. He did great on the plane and slept pretty well in his new environment.

Telling Daddy how excited he is to open all of those presents behind him.

We loved our first Christmas with a little one in the house. Next year he will be a little more into the whole holiday thing. We cannot wait to teach him the real reason for Christmas and celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
