And Then They Were Over

The holidays flew by in the blink of an eye.  I don't even know where the past week went.  We were traveling for most of it, and I made a conscious decision to not worry about blogging.  It's easier to enjoy life when I'm not worried about documenting it. 

The holiday was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed EH's first Christmas with us.  I can already tell that he is going to open up a whole new perspective on how I look at Christmas, and I think it's going to be really fun.  We kept things simple this year, since he's not going to remember is anyway, but we made a cute little video of him opening his first Christmas gift to show him when he's older.  We did lots of traveling yet again (even though we SWORE we were going to stop doing so much traveling once we had kids) and he got to spend a lot of time with his grandparents, aunts, uncles, great-aunts, cousins, second cousins, etc.  Everyone loved him.

Of course, the whirlwind event that traveling and staying with others is, EH's schedule was thrown completely off whack.  (Oh, and he also had yet another double ear infection, which peaked on Christmas day until we could take him to the doctor on the 26th, so that was fun.)  His sleep schedule was completely messed up and we ended up giving way more late-night feedings that we ever wanted to.  All of that has meant that since we've been home, he's not been a good sleeper AT ALL.  Let the re-training begin. 

And we still haven't "taken down Christmas."  Yes, our Christmas lights are still illuminated outside, and although some people might find that to be trashy, I secretly love it.  Christmas lights make me smile.

Thanks for checking in!

OMG Christmas lights can happily stay illuminated until mid-January, if you ask me! :)

Glad you're rolling with the punches of re-training him. This will take a new turn in the toddler years, as you'll need to de-grammy-ize him after returning from a weekend trip to your parents' house. You're better off just getting familiar with the concept of re-training now. :)
