Soooo...maybe I just knock it out in one big, concise, inclusive blog?!?! I say, "YES!"
I bought a house! That's right! I guess that makes me an official adult now...More to come on our house...
|Signing my life away!|
|Ken, Christian and Diane (Our real estate agent...)|
|Christian is very important in his rolling chair at the closing...|
|The sweet congratulatory dessert our waitress made us at the Cheesecake Factory after our closing|
|Somehow Christian lost his britches at the new house while we were helping Daddy "fix it up"|
|Smiles for Mommy! You can see the heinous color the previous tenants used int he sun room. We have had to repaint the WHOLE house...28 gallons (and counting) later and it doesn't hurt your eyes to look at the walls...|
Christian LOVES taking "big boy baths"! No more baby bath tubs for this little guy!
|Eating meatballs (HIS FAVORITE!) and sweet potato french fries...|
I went through Holiday at my store and we rocked it out BIG TIME! I'm sad that the Christmas season is over...I'm probably the ONLY person in retail who LOVES Christmas in retail.
|My Holiday Team!|
|My AMAZING management team and their FEARLESS leader!|
|Yay for toilet paper!|
Christian is doing much much better at sleeping through the night! He will usually sleep for about 6 hours straight (and sometimes even 8 on a really good night!) before waking up to be nursed. I have no pictures to represent this change in his life, but you can visibly see a difference in the reduction of bags underneath my eyes. Sometimes when I get home from work, I miss nursing him to sleep if he's already in bed. But I realize it's part of Christian growing up and needing Mommy less and less. It's such a bittersweet thing...
Christian went to see the doctor on the 8th of December for his 9 month checkup! The doctor confirmed that Christian is a healthy happy boy who remains in the 10th percentile for growth. We are absolutely fine with having a little guy with a big personality! I will do a separate post for this checkup because there was a lot of information learned...
|On the carousel with Daddy|
|LOVES playing on the playground|
|Making friends wherever he goes...|
|Dancing with our waitress...we're pretty sure Christian has a thing for Asian women.|
|SUSHI! Mana from the gods!|
Grandma still loves to dress me up...
We spent Christmas at my mother's house...it was wonderful! I will do a longer blog of Christmas day, but we had so much fun!
We've had some busy months! And our little man has flourished. You never understand how thankful you are until you take time to stop and recognize all of your blessings...and the Clarks aren't short on blessings! Here's to a quick "wham-bam-thank you-ma'am!" catch up blog!
