A Quick Hello and Christmas Update

It’s been a couple of weeks since my last post. I have been so incredibly busy with the kids, Christmas, and everything else in life that I had to take that time out to focus on life – plus I had some major healing from surgery to do. With that being said, I’m back and I’m ready to begin posting again just as often as I was before.

Christmas was amazing and the kids had a great time. They got a lot of great gifts – but even more so, we got to spend family time and that was worth more than any gift anybody could have gotten. The baby got to open his first Christmas presents – but truth be told, I think he enjoyed the wrapping paper pieces more than anything else, as most babies do. In all honesty, we had to open the majority of his presents for him. It was a lot of fun though.

However; ugh.

The baby got sick 2 days before Christmas with the same cold his brother had. This was his first illness – which I suppose is pretty good for him being 10.5 months old! Come Christmas day, his fever was gone (just a day earlier it was up to 102.5) but he was still really stuffy and congested, and all around didn’t feel well. It’s very true what ‘they’ say, though, about breastfed babies and their recovery time. He was only sick for 3 days with a bad cold, where his brother was sick for 2 weeks. Alex was also breastfed, but only for a few months. Breast milk is an amazing thing.

We got to spend some quality time at my FIL’s house, and it was a really nice time. We were there for the majority of the day, and it was really nice to see the family all together.

Here are some pictures from Christmas Eve and Christmas Day:



Just some of the presents Santa left on Christmas Eve

Baby Richi opening his Daniel Tiger, whom he loves oh-so-much




Marcus opening his XBOX 1 S after we pranked him (see the old xBox on the left? We wrapped that up and gave that to him first and he was so bummed it was ridiculous. Then came this! LOL)




Baby Richi in his new walker from Grandpa, who’s here in the picture with him

I have more pics but for some reason I’m having a hard time uploading them; must be a WP issue. Anyway, here’s to the end of a not-so-great year (at least, for me it wasn’t – save for the birth of my precious boy) and here’s to a bright, new year!
