My opinion of the day is that Christmas consumerism is excessive and totally nuts.
Well we are finally home from all our holiday travels. Went to Williamsport for Christmas and then Richmond to visit my sister's family and their new baby. Then on the way home from Richmond we stopped at my mom's and had more presents and dinner with her and my step-sister and her hubby. Busy times and WAY too many gifts, especially toys. I'm not used to this, because the past few years Nathan has gotten a lot of clothes because he was too little to care. This year everyone went crazy with the toys, and now I have no idea where to put them all. I guess I really could have gotten him a few less things myself, but how can Santa and mommy be outdone by all the grandparents and aunts and uncles? We just need a bigger house to fit all the trains :) (kidding...I kid...I really don't want a bigger house)
My sister's baby is adorable. He sleeps ALL day and is up most of the night. They try to wake him a lot during the day, but with newborns it is tough. Her 17 month old daughter is funny, she's the tazmanian devil. So busy and into everything. I took lots of pictures, which will be up on my Flickr soon.
Alex is still hit or miss with sleeping through the night, which is annoying. I don't get it, but I'm guessing his stuffy nose isn't helping. He's just maturing and getting more interactive with his surroundings so he has decided that when he wakes up he should eat! Oh, and he's back to only taking 40 minute naps, I think because of all the traveling. So I've got some work to do to get him back on track.
