Christmas and other random thoughts. . .

So this year has been a roller coaster that's for sure, but the end is definitely the topper. Christmas was AMAZING with Brandon & Madyn. He was so excited for every present, and loves that Santa ate his cookies and drank his milk. It was so amazing seeing his reaction to his presents. He loved every part of it and lasted through all of our different stops we had to do except the last one.

My neice, DiAnna-Jo ended up in the hospital on Christmas day this year. She would NOT stop screaming and was in pain, so my sister and her future mother in law and the babies dad all went to the hospital and they admitted her (DiAnna-Jo). The dr's brought in a GI specialist today and they did an upper GI test and found out she has acid reflux, and is now on a special formula that is basically amino acids. The valve on her stomach doesn't close all the way, which is why she spits up a lot! I went to see her today and she looked so much better then she's looked since she was born. She's starting to really use her hands, and really focused on them. She goes cross eyed when looking at them. Such a little sweetheart. I love her so much and she's only 3 months old tomorrow! It's CRAZY! lol

So, Madyn got a bike for Christmas!! He went and rode it today for the first time. From what I heard he only fell once, but he didn't cry! I wasn't able to see him ride it unfortunately since I went to be with my neice today, but daddy took video of it and if I can figure out how to get it on the computer i'll try and post it!

Madyn is getting so big, and I can hardly believe in about 8 months I'll have a kindergartener. Seems like just yesterday I was walking up to this GIANT blue door myself covered in teddy bear stickers with other kids names on it as well as my own starting this adventure. I am so nervous for this adventure to start, and find myself being a little selfish with him. He's such a sweetheart and definitely a momma's boy & I not-so-secretly hope that doesn't ever change.

Anyways, I am looking forward to the new year, lots of new things happening this year! Hope everyone out there had a wonderful holiday season, even if you didn't celebrate Christmas, I hope you guys enjoyed all the family time and all of the memories that were made were good ones :)
