"Santa!! I know him!!!"

Now London can officially say this! Today London went and met Santa for the very first time. He did such a good job. I was expecting him to FREAK OUT, but he didn't he sat and stared at Santa. We got a really cute picture of him doing this but I can't upload it for a few more days (LONG STORY). Here is the picture of London with Santa (Santa apparently squints all the time, no wonder he needs Rudolph's nose to guide his sleigh) as well as a few more Christmas pictures.

London and Santa.

Before I start getting nasty comments. They are heatless bulbs, and I made SURE not to let him put them in his mouth.
He loved the lights.

Last year there were only 2 stockings hanging by the fireplace. I could not have asked for a better year!

I am such a horrible blogger.

Now that London is getting so big and mobile, it seems like I never have time to sit down and actually update my blog. I am always chasing after him. I swear that boy NEVER sits still.

Here are a few new things.

1) London's first Thanksgiving was awesome. We had a great time with the family. The highlight had to be karaoke. Yes, we bought a karaoke machine, and it was AWESOME!! I did a nice little rendition of Nysnc's "Bye Bye Bye". I have a feeling even Lance Bass would have been proud of it :)

2) London had his 6 months shots FINALLY!! I walked into the room and the Dr said "wow, he is a BIG boy" I quickly had to remind him that even though it was his 6 month check up, he was in fact 9 months old. We tried to get him in months ago but due to changing insurance, then having 2 appointments cancelled on us, it just took us a while to finally do it. London did really well. He cried and as did I. I swear those shots never get any easier, for either one of us. London now weighs 21 lbs (56th %tile) (up only a pound in 2 months, Dr said that is very common once they start crawling and burning all those calories) and 28in long (40th %tile) London has gone from being a FAT baby to an average size almost toddler. I guess only time will tell if he takes after me or Mike.

3)London has been obsessed with rubber duckies for a while now, however recently he has taken it to a whole new level. He will not leave the house with out one of them (he only has two). If you put him in the car and don't hand him his "duckie" then you can expect him to throw a fit.

4) I believe that over the last few weeks, London has started talking. He will crawl up to me and say "ma ma ma" and he almost always babbles "da da da" but especially when Mike is around. I can't be certain about whether he knows that I am Mama or the Mike is Dada but I am about 90% sure that he does. However, when it comes time to write in his baby book neither of those will be listed as his first word. Yesterday, while throwing a fit in his car seat because I did not bring "duckie" to the car with us. London said "Duck". It was so cute. He said it several times yesterday and today. Including once when he couldn't reach him, so he started yelling "DUCK DUCK DUCK" I almost cried, my little boy is TALKING!!!

5) As we are gearing up for Christmas, I have been having a field day ordering all of new stuff for London. I got him a a super cute stocking and baby's first Christmas ornament. I can not wait for him to see the gifts we...I mean SANTA... got for him. We are decorating the house for Christmas tomorrow (yes, I know we are a little behind), so I promise to add some pictures then.

I guess that is about it from me for today. I am going to leave you like I always do, with some pictures.

My handsome boy.
