First, My Friday Confession...I miss him when he is asleep. However I am oh so happy when he actually goes to bed. It is quiet the conundrum.
I am thinking about changing my blog title soon. When Mike and I first started going through IVF we were The Infertility Overachievers. We both had something wrong with us that was causing our infertility. It's sad, but we were WAY overachieving at infertility. However we EVENTUALLY beat it. I know I bore alot of you these days with my mindless posting of London's stats and pictures. I also know I have lost alot of readers because of the direction this blog has taken, but to be honest I love my blog. This blog represents my life. I am a stay at home mom who is obsessed with her baby boy.
Boring? For you, probably yes.
Rewarding? For me, 100% YES!
Would I have it any other way? 100% NO!!!
Is it physically hard? No.
Is it emotionally hard? Yes, it's EXHAUSTING!!!
However given all of that, I love being able to spend all day everyday with the love of my life (sorry Mike).
I saw this quote online tonight and it spoke to me. I am trying to work it into a new title for my blog. Any suggestions?

I have been wanting a piece of mommy jewelry for a long time now, but I finally got it!!! Woooohoooo!! It was kind of a late Christmas present from the hubs. I love it but the only problem I am having is that London LOVES it too. So he keeps trying to snatch it off my neck. I guess it will have to be reserved for "baby free" occasions.

Well London's first Christmas was PERFECT!! We started on Christmas eve when we all got to open ONE present. SHOCKINGLY it was PJ's! :) London also got a few Christmas duckies in his.
The next morning we all woke up at 7am and came into the den where we saw this.
London started by opening his stocking. He was VERY excited. I also think he was a bit shocked that he wasn't on Santa's Naughty List.
Then he started opening his presents, although he didn't want alot to do with them. Here he is running away. However when we went down to Savannah to do Christmas with my family, he LOVED this plane that my brother got him. (It was bed time so we were in the middle of putting on his PJ's when Jay gave it to him.)
Last but not least LONDON HAS STARTED WALKING. He had been getting closer and closer to taking steps since right before Christmas. All the sudden he just took off. He is still a little unsteady, but definitely doing well. He is fearless and always tries to walk now even if he does fall after about 5 steps. It's all down hill from here! I promise I am going to get a better video of him walking but it is so hard to do it by myself. The quality here sucks because for some reason the camera wouldn't focus, but you get the point.
