We made it!

So I didn't post this before but Brian was out of town the last couple of nights. He's back now so we're stalkers! However, I started back to work this week and had to juggle a baby with work, taking him to Goli, picking him up on time and managing him on my own at home. Nope, didn't pull any hair out and he slept pretty much like a charm! He has begun waking up by pooting - yes, pooting, around 3 in the morning. I can hear it on the monitor! It makes me wake up also, I go to him, stick a pacifier in his mouth and he'll go back to sleep. Brian missed him so much! Of course Troy missed his daddy, too.

While Troy was napping at night, I have been able to get some sewing done, too. I'm working on a couple of Christmas outfits for him. They involve smocking, of which I don't enjoy. I'm almost finished with one outfit. I made a 3 month and since he's already wearing 3 month handmade clothes, I'm a bit concerned that he'll grow out of it before Thanksgiving. I'll make sure he wears it before then, just in case. What's wrong with wearing a snowman outfit before Thanksgiving? We've had a rule in our household that we don't begin celebrating Christmas (with the decor and music, etc.) until the day after Thanksgiving. Since the Auburn/Alabama game is that day, I'm not sure we'll get the decor out until later. I did, however, learn an important lesson last year. You NEVER pick out a Christmas tree without your significant other participating. Never!

We have his 2 month checkup on Friday so I'll try hard to post his stats that day. AND, Brian and I are going to the Auburn/GA game this weekend. I think I'm crazy but we're not taking Troy. I know it'll be really hard but he'll be in great hands with my Mom. She and John have graciously agreed to come to our house and care for him. And, it's their anniversary. I will tell them how grateful we are to them! I'll let you all know how that goes, too.

Elyse, he is just beautiful. I am so happy for you and Brian. What a blessing that he is a happy little guy.
