Tonight Josh and I are celebrating New Year's at home. Wade went to bed around 8:30pm and we made some appetizers and mimosa's and rented some movies. Not our typical New Years but it has been really fun! Here are some of the pictures from Christmas. These are from our old camera but once I download the new camera stuff I will try to add some of those as well. Hope everyone has a "Happy New Year"
Oh our New Years resolution is.... to get healthy. Not to loose weight or go on a diet but to eat better all the time. I only feed Wade organic baby food and I really want him to grow up eating healthy and the only way he is going to learn this is if he see's us eating that way. So we are going to try really hard to eat better. The last couple of months we have not been doing so well so it will be a lifestyle change for us.

Of course his ears still have fluid in them and he did not sleep well at all. Actually he will not sleep in his bed anymore at night and we do not have a clue what to do? He naps fine and he goes to bed fine at 8pm but by 11pm he is screaming like you are cutting his arms and legs off. He will only sleep if one of us is holding him which means we aren't getting much sleep. We tried really hard not to bring him into our bed but last night we both were so tired we gave in. We have been holding him on the couch but we can't stay awake all night anymore. Of course we are sleeping in the new house so I am sure it doesn't help being in a new place but he was doing this at mom and dad's as well. So.... tomorrow we are going to the ENT and I am praying they will consider doing tubes if it will help. I just want our good sleeper back. He is great during the day other than being a little tired but at night we have a different child. Any ideas about getting him to sleep in his bed? He is taking 3 hour naps which is nice but its because he is worn out. I am not crazy about surgery but if it helps him I am all for it. Plus I am tried of seeing him hurting and all the antibiotics are really hurting his stomach. So we have our fingers crossed for tomorrow.
Well we are in our new house and trying to get settled. We are almost all unpacked but we only brought about half of the stuff from our old house since this house is half the size. We will have to store the rest in my parents garage. Poor Josh... this is his vacation week and we have been so busy moving and he has actually gotten less sleep this week than most because of Wade's ears. But, at least we are getting settled. I could have never unpacked and organized so quickly without him here. Thanks Josh we love you!! We actually have a date tonight and I am so excited. My parents are coming over to watch Wade and we are going to Sullivan's for dinner. It was part of my Christmas present. The other part is wonderful too!!! Josh is sending my on a shopping spree to Lily and White House Black Market at Cameron Village to buy some new clothes. He got two gifts cards and wrote me a sweet note and part of it said "Enjoy a day of shopping." I am so excited and cannot remember the last time I went clothes shopping. It was probably to buy maternity clothes. Not sure when I will get the chance to go shopping but I am looking forward to it. We don't have any plans for New Years this year. My parents will be out of town and since Wade isn't feeling well we probably would not be leaving him anyways. So... Josh and I are going to get some appetizers and make our favorite dessert and rent a movie or two and enjoy our new house. To be honest I am really looking forward to this. We decided we may go out next year but this year we are just hanging out. Hope everyone has a Happy New Year!

- He weighed 19lbs 9oz at his last appt so I am guessing he is around 20lbs
-He wears size 3 diapers
-He is wearing mostly 12 month clothes but can still wear 6-9 month pants
-He has been sitting up for a month now
-He now tries to crawl but just gets mad and cries, he falls over to his stomach from sitting but can't do anything except roll after he gets there
-He loves to eat: he eats three meals a day and still nurses
- He has 4 teeth and has two more coming in
-He "bangs" everything and loves to be as loud as he can
-He says "dada" all the time and two days ago said "momma" for the first time (he has only said it twice since then)
-He LOVES his "pops" (my dad) they are best friends
-His favorite TV show is wonder pets and will sit and watch it
-He is a very "busy" child and does not like to sit still anymore
-He loves the Christmas lights when we go for our walk in the evenings
-He loves to read and look at books
-He is really funny and likes to make us laugh (he gets that from Josh)
-He usually sleeps great and naps twice a day (unless he has an ear infection- we are on medicine for #3 as we speak)
-He is so precious!!
I know I am forgetting things but this is what we are up to. He is on a great schedule and we love it; it makes life so much easier. However we usually forget about our schedule when we travel, especially during this busy Holiday season. We can't wait for his 1st Christmas this year. He is just so much fun.

We got to go to our rental house tonight and see it. My parents own it and the guy who had been living there moved out today. Surprisingly it did not look so bad. They had not seen it in 4 years. It actually felt bigger than I remembered. I guess anything would feel big since we do not have our own space except for our bedroom here. It has so be painted and a couple of things have to be fixed but we are hoping to be moving in in two weeks. I don't thing we will sleep there before Christmas because that is a lot of work to decorate for a few days but we will at least get everything in and un packed except for Wade's furniture so we can start sleeping there after Christmas. My goal is to have everything unpacked and organized and have pictures hung etc before we move in. Josh is off for 10 days after Christmas eve so it will be nice to get settled and just enjoy our new place after that. We are so grateful to my parents for letting us stay here for the last 3 1/2 months but we are excited to now have our own place.

Last Friday Josh got tickets from work to the Hurricanes game. Well of course mom and dad wanted to keep Wade for us but Josh really wanted to take him. He is loving having a little boy to start taking to sporting events. Well I am the negative one and I was really worried about how he would do because it didn't even start until 7pm and he is always in bed by 8pm. Of course he proved me wrong and he did great. We stayed the entire time and he did not get in bed until 11pm. He was amazed by all the bright lights and noises. We went with Andrea and Brad and their boys and had a great time. I also got to meet some of Josh's friends from work and it was good to finally meet them. So needless to say Josh is all ready to try another game or a football game. We were so glad Wade was so happy. Every time he would try to close his eyes something would happen and wake him up so he just gave up on sleeping and enjoyed the game. Of course we lost in over time. Josh was hoping to see a shoot out. Maybe next time!

So here is Wade' s new thing. He makes this silly face and then laughs at himself. He was laughing so hard but of course once I got the camera out he would only laugh a couple of times... but he does the silly face quite a few times. He has Josh's crazy personality.

Ready to go to the festival
This was a couple of days ago. I just loved this pirate shirt I found at kid to kid. Its hard to see in the picture because he is leaning over, but its so cute. That has got to be one of the best places to get kids clothes. Everything is so cheap. We also got his cow costume there for only $6. Well tomorrow we are going to just relax and hang around the house. Hopefully Wade will sleep well tonight... I have always heard that kids get all messed up when daylight savings time comes around. Hopefully it will only take a day or two for him to get in the swing of things. I am so excited for an extra hour of sleep. Happy Halloween. Oh I forgot to mention Josh and I started dating 4 years ago tonight. Its hard to believe we have been together that long and married 2 1/2 years next month. Not a great night to remember so we have always said Nov. 1st. (even though we don't count this as an anniversary anymore, now we just do our wedding date)

Josh's Birthday dinner
Cousins- Wade & Peyton I forgot to mention that Josh and I had a great date night for his birthday. We went to dinner and a movie and it was so fun. Couples Retreat was pretty cute but not as good as Hangover. Josh has gotten to choose the last two movies we have seen so it is definitely my turn next time. Thanks Mimi for babysitting!!
