I know it's been forever since I've updated but I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.
I can't believe that was my baby's FOURTH Christmas! It hardly seems fair, how quickly he's growing. Here's a brief synopsis
Aww he's grown up so much!!
David really made out on Christmas Eve! He got tons of toys and clothes. For the most part, we had a really nice evening spending time with the family. Here are the pictures.
Weston and Jaxon playing the PSP
Time to open presents!!
(He looks so surprised, but come to find out, that one was for me )
He loved this shirt so much he wanted to put it on right away LOL
Here's Wes with his guitar
Jaxon was trying to give David a hug... but David didn't want one
Kylie LOVED this doll! I'm not sure she even realized that she got any other presents!
Here she is feeding it:
Meme, David, and Jaxon
JoAnn, David, and Jaxon
And, this is what Jaxon does when you say "Show me your mean face"
In lieu of presents this year because of our financial situation, Javier and I decided that we would instead do everything possible to make today the best holiday together ever! It was great! I cooked a turkey for the first time, and it turned out FABULOUS! It was so juicy and so pretty! I wanted to get a picture of it, but didn't get a chance to before it was cut into. I was really proud of how it turned out.
David had a great day, despite waking up with a fever. Here's some pictures.
David is so cuddly sometimes. I love the way he fits perfectly into my arms when we cuddle, as if he is a piece of the puzzle that was missing before he was born.
David has learned how to make his tricycle go all by himself already!! We decided to go for a little walk up the street one day because they were having a garage sale. Well, I put him on his tricycle and pushed him up there on it. He sat on the tricycle and played with the straps while I glanced around, and next thing I knew, he was making it go all by himself!!!
I'm so excited for him!
I got to go to therapy with David on Monday which was really exciting for me because normally I'm at work and my sister takes him. I love that place! David loves it too, as was evident from the moment he walked in - strutting around like he owned the place
Here he is in the waiting room.
Shortly after I snapped that picture, David proceeds to have a temper tantrum and throw his glasses across the room. The lens popped off and I couldn't find it anywhere!! I was in a panic, trying to find this little lens, with people walking everywhere. I was terrified of someone stepping on it. While I'm frantically searching, David find the door and tries to leave! I finally found the lens, but it was pretty stressful for a minute LOL
Anyways, here he is on a little scooter thing. She was having him go all the way down the hall to get a piece to a puzzle, come back and place it in the correct place, and then go back for another piece. It made *me* tired LOL
Here's a short video
Then it was time for the swing.
And then, right before we left, it was time for the ball pit.
And finally, a quick request. David has to have minor surgery on February 10th. He has a mild hernia in the middle of his abdomen. I noticed it one night when he was having a screaming fit. When he pushes on those muscles (like when he's trying to sit up, or when he's screaming, it causes it to poke out a little bit.
I panicked that night and was *this* close to rushing him to the emergency room *blush* - but I did end up taking him into see a surgeon who said that it was not anything emergent but he'd like to go ahead and fix it before it becomes a problem.
While the surgeon is there, he's also going to remove the granuloma that has built up around David's mickey button.
It's nothing serious, and I know we've been through a ton worse, but it's still scary when our babies have to have surgery.
He weighed in at 1 lb, 4oz, and was 12.5 inches long.
Here's his story.
