……and while she is busy chasing two small children (who are probably on a sugar cookie high) around the house, I am taking this nap time to hijack her blog. Welcome to Mommy in Raleigh (techincally Apex).
We just finished celebrating Emma’s first Christmas. There are so many things that made this Christmas wonderful. It was the first holiday season that was not spent in a car. I was also super happy not to be pregnant this Christmas. We spent time with my Dad and Grandma in Mt. Airy. Laresa and Julie were there too! Then we went to my mom’s house in Bonlee. We spent the night and woke up to a wonderful Christmas Eve breakfast. I didn’t get much sleep though because Julie snores really loud. This is why no one ever wants to share a bed with her. She also talks in her sleep. (Sorry Julie but these things must be addressed.)
I am really excited for next year because Emma will know what is happening. I can’t believe that she will be a year old in less than 3 months. Time goes by so fast!! I never guessed that I would be spending my evenings and weekends chasing around a 9 month old. It takes a lot of energy to keep her from the various deathtraps around our house. Mostly she loses fights with the coffee table. I know we need to baby-proof the house a little better especially since Emma is crawling now. She started crawling on December 20th at my office Holiday party. I was so proud! My New Year’s resolution will be to baby-proof the house (and lose the last 6 pounds of baby weight).
I’m going to go now. I might have 30 more minutes of naptime. I think I can finish the laundry………………
