I was sitting in bed last night, trying to refrain from eating you as you lay there next to me squealing and laughing and grabbing your little feet...and I began thinking about how much you have grown in these past 5 months...

Eventually you got a little cranky, so I picked you up and held you close to my chest...your body mostly resting on my thigh. I held you tight.

When you were very, very small, and I was breastfeeding you, I held you with the smallest seemed so fragile to me if I held you too tight, I would break you.

Last night I basked in your your mass. I squeezed you. I know I have a couple of years left of times like these, where I can hold you to my heart's content.

364 Days Until Christmas!!!

Santa came and went...he left the little piglet lots of lovely gifts...including a book of poems, toys and clothes. What a lucky boy to have such beautiful things!

Now he naps with his I think about our first Christmas day together...

Feliz Navidad, O! Feliz Navidad.

Snap, Crackle, Pop!

This morning, Joe, O and I are sitting at the dinning room table having breakfast. O was sitting on my lap...and I notice that he is staring at my I say, "Are you interested in food piglet...maybe we'll get you some rice cereal soon..." My adoring husband then says, "Like Rice Crispies?"...I'm still laughing...

Shots sucked. He cried and cried. Poor peanut.

Weight: 16lbs 4.8 oz
Height: 26 3/4 in

Hopefully tomorrow he will be his usual happy self...for his sake...I was pretty pleased with how well I handled it all...although I must admit his little stream of constant tears tugged at my heart.
