Sweet Dreams

I don't know what has been in the water lately, but J has been sleeping roughly 13 hours each night! This has been going on for over a week. I guess he's just growing. He's still taking pretty good naps, too. I'm definitely not complaining.

J is finishing his lunch (squash, corn and chicken along with apples and plums, third course--cheerios of course!) and I am typing this. We are playing a little peek a boo game. I turn in his direction and he laughs. Today he is in a particularly good mood and is doing this bull breathing thing where he scrunches up his nose and breathes in and out really fast. He looks so damn cute doing it and laughs his head off when I copy him. I just sneezed and that made him laugh even more. This child loves sounds that are bodily functions. The bigger the burp, the bigger the laugh. And if you say, "What a burp!" he goes into hysterics. His favorite phrase of the week is "W-U-S-S" as in wuss, which was what I was calling B on a drive in the rain the other day. I looked at J and said, "Your daddy is being a w-u-s-s" and he cracked up. Now anytime I spell wuss to him, he laughs.

Cheerios are gone and he is now mad. Must go

Happy New Year

It's been way too long since I have been blogging-- mainly because I got frustrated that I didn't know how to add all of the cool sidebar things, and then I just got busy. J (no longer known as DS because that's too annoying for me to write) is now almost 11 months old and has been taking a few little steps in the past few days. I actually missed the first three because B (no longer DH) was letting me sleep. I was so bummed. Now, everytime J is balanced standing up, I beg him to come and walk towards me. At which point he plops on his butt and comes over and gives me a hug. That's totally fine with me, since I really don't want him walking yet anyway!

Had 10 people come and visit us for Christmas, which was awesome. I was a little nervous about how things would go and whether we would have enough room at the table for dinner, but it worked out well. The only thing that really sucked was the weather. It never rains in Austin, but it did for three of the days that people were here, putting a damper on all of the possible outdoor activities to do here. That had people in my house a little more than expected, but we all still had fun. We still have leftovers in our fridge a week later and not because we haven't been eating them!

Anyway, I hope to write a little more often and we'll see how that goes. Looking back, I'm disappointed not to have written about all of the exciting milestones J has reached in the past few months, but there will be plenty more.
