Oh Yeah...I Have a Blog...

I've been such a bad bad blogger. I miss it, yet when I have a few minutes to spare throughout the day I always get caught up in something trivial like trying to scrub bright yellow baby poop out of the only pair of jean that fit my post-partum body. How silly of me!

Here are some highlights of the last month....

-Jack has started to smile at us. His smiles are few and far between, but they light up my world. I cannot tell you how much I love that gummy little mouth and his crinkly little eyes (just like his daddy!).

I'd normally insert a picture here, but I left my camera at my in-laws house...sleep deprivation does WONDERS for your memory people!!

-We celebrated our first Christmas as a family. We went to the Christmas Eve candlelight service at our church, Jack began to fuss almost immediately so he and I went into the nursing mother's room. At first I was a tad bummed to miss the lighting of the candles, but as I held my baby boy in my arms and danced around the room while watching the service on the TV, I savored that precious moment on Christmas Eve. Just he and I celebrating the birth of our Savior.

-Christmas Day was great fun! Jack slept through most of it, but little does he know that he was SHOWERED in presents from his loving family. I was excited to give him a Soothe and Glow Seahorse. He seems to really like it, he looks at it with the biggest eyes you have ever seen.

(Again....I would normally insert a picture here...)

-Jack is now well over 11 pounds...he gained almost a pound in only 12 days! Look at how much his face has changed!
Also...he seems to have a bit of a receding hairline. I mean, I guess I expected some balding, but not from the top first! He looks a bit like a little old man. Our tiny grandpa.

-MY LITTLE SISTER GOT ENGAGED! Sorry...I'm just a TAD excited about this...can you tell?
(I stole both of those pictures from Facebook)

I'm thinking that between the five of us, my parents have had a pretty huge year. Emily had a baby, I had a baby, Ashley got engaged, and Everett and Bethany both started college. If thats not a monumental year I don't know what is! Here's hoping 2010 is just as great!

What were the highlights of your year? I think we all know what mine was!


  1. Missed you! Congrats on your lovely baby and your sister being engaged! What a great year!

  2. Glad to see you're still among the living! Looks like your family has had lots of big doings this year! Hope 2010 brings you many blessings as well!

  3. I think you have a valid excuse for not blogging so regularly! Your baby looks like an angel.

  4. Yes, your family has had a big year! Sounds like your holidays were joyous. My highlights? Nothing major, actually, I guess starting to write again (novel) was a big one for me! Have a happy new year!

  5. So glad to hear from you, but we know that you are super busy, so don't worry about when you post.

    He is one gorgeous baby, you must both be thrilled.

    Becca, I hope that each year continues to be better than the one before it. Happy New Year to all of you.


  6. How blessed you and your family are.

    We had a quiet year, which is always nice.

    Here's to 2010!!

  7. He is so adorable. Can't wait to see my own Jack! Happy 2010!

  8. Yay! Love the sweet baby smiles!! I totally get it about time management with the baby. Even now with Hunter almost five months, I STILL have a hard time squeezing in blogging! (as i sit here and type this he's on my lap, hiccuping after a bottle, trying so hard to reach for my fingers and the laptop! LOL)

  9. Getting engaged was a big one for me. That baby of yours is ADORABLE!!
