Back to Normal

Whew... we have had a very busy past few days. I worked half a day on Wednesday and went home to try and finish everything for Christmas but I still didn't get done! We woke up on Christmas Eve and Neal was not feeling well at all. I mean not good at all because he asked if I would take him to the doctor. Let me just say he has not been to any kind of doctor since I have known him.... He must have felt bad! I took him to the doctor and he got a shot and a Z-pack... I don't think the doctor ever told us what the problem was, but being the doctor that I am.. I am thinking a Sinus Infection. We got home and took a LONG nap and then Jett and I were off to the Christmas Eve service at our church. It was very nice and Jett got to see Santa again. Santa came over to talk to him and he just smiled so big. He is such a cutie! After church we went to my Aunt Kim's for a Christmas party and we had so much fun but when we left it was coming a hurricane outside. We got home and Jett went to bed and we played Santa! I think we finally went to bed around 1:00. Christmas morning we got up at 7:30 and opened presents at our house and then had to be at mom and dad's at 8.. I think we got there at 8:30. I wish you could have seen him opening his presents... it was precious. He would have rather have the paper than anything! We had a big breakfast and then opened presents. Jett got a ton of clothes, man socks (as my mom calls them), jammies, lots of books, and the Fisher Price Lullaby Sea Horse! After we got done there we were off to Alabama to Neal's moms. We met Star, Stacey, Matt, Justin, and Uncle O'Neal. Jett opened more presents and got tons of toys, a new fleece coat, and a new Alabama blanket which is very cute! From Neal's moms we went to his Uncle Bob's for lunch. Then it was back to my Nanny's for more family time. Jett is the 1st grandbaby on this side of the family and let me tell you, he is rotten. This child is loved! He got to open his presents here and got tons more stuff.... clothes, a new pair of Robeez, toys, money, and a wooden train from my Nanny and Pop. After we left here we went to my Grandma's, my dad's mom. We ate dinner and opened more presents. My Grandma made him the most precious book... I will have to show you guys. (I am not trying to brag about all of Jett's presents... I am just trying to document so I can remember)! It was a really long day and Saturday we were able to rest... thank goodness. Yesterday we slept in and were making our plans for the day and all of the sudden I felt sick to my stomach and guess what... I had the stomach virus. So my mom came to get Jett and I slept all day yesterday. He spent the night with them and I haven't seen him since yesterday around 11.... I am missing him like crazy! I came to work today so hopefully things will be getting back to normal!

P. S. I will post my Christmas pictures later tonight!

This little guy slept thru the night last night for the 1st time in about 3 weeks.... YAY!!! He started sleeping thru the night when he was about 2 months and has done great until recently. I am not sure what happened but it has been killing me... let me tell you, it is hard to go to work on 3 hours of sleep! The past week I have been a complete zombie at work... OH well, he can keep me up all night, every night if he wants to! I am blaming the sleepless nights on teeth but I am not for sure. His top gum is very swollen and super red, so I think that they are going to pop thru any day now. Poor little man.... that has to be so painful.

Well I am finally starting to get excited about Christmas.. (it's about time)! I have to work till 12 today and then we can start our Christmas holiday!!! I have 1 more gift to buy and I will be done but as for the wrapping... I will just say I have 4 presents wrapped. I have got to go home and get busy!

# 2

Well I finally got #2 finished.... thankfully!! This is the tree I have been fighting with for the past 3 weeks. Let me just go ahead and say I HATE pre-lit trees. I only got some of the lights to work so I had to use 2 strands of extra lights I just happened to have. I am still debating if this will be the tree's last year at our house! After all of the fighting I think it turned out beautiful. I only wish I could leave it up all year...

And I just had to share this precious picture with you!

This has to be the cutest thing I have ever seen! This was Jett during the Alabama vs. Florida game on Saturday... I think he was just about as happy as his daddy was... ROLL TIDE! Check out those 2 teeth on the bottom.


Well I have been trying to get my house decorated for Christmas since a few days before Thanksgiving and I am just not having any luck. I just can't get with it and it just doesn't really feel like Christmas time to me, which is sad because I love the holidays! So I finally got one tree done and there is still one to go... not to mention my mantle and piano, etc. Kerry and I started putting Jett's tree up in his room before Thanksgiving and I finally got it completely finished... YAY! Now my other tree is a different story and it makes me just want to SCREAM! I have a huge pre-lit tree and only half of the lights are working and I can't get them to come on to save my life. So my project for tomorrow is to take it apart piece by piece and get it to work.... tell me that isn't going to be loads of fun! To end on a better note here are some pictures of Jett's tree in his bedroom! I LOVE how it turned out. (Kerry... I did find a way to fit every last ornament on it!!!)

I think he is pretty happy with it as well!

Guess Who

Guess who has started sitting up by himself.... you guessed it, Mr. JETT! He has been trying VERY hard for the past few weeks but I think he has it down. He is growing up way to fast. I took these pictures tonight while we were at Cracker Barrell. He was into everything... drinks, silverware, food.. you name it! I think I am going to have my hands full before I know it!

Trying to get my drink

Such a big boy!

5 months

I can't believe my little man is 5 months old.. well almost 6 :)! Time is flying by just like everyone said it would. This is what you have been up to this month.....

  • You weighed 16lbs and 14oz
  • You still wearing a size 2 diaper
  • You are wearing some 3-6 months clothes but mostly 6-9 months
  • I still can't figure out your eyes... sometimes a watery blue and other times a greeny/blue.. very beautiful though!
  • I still can't figure out your hair either.. I really think it is going to be red but other times it is very dark. I just can't wait to see what it will look like!
  • You are sleeping thru the night and have been since you were about 2 months old!!
  • You are such a good baby... happy all the time (well, most of the time).
  • You have 2 bottom teeth that popped out at the end of October and they are getting very big these days.
  • You love to lay on a blanket in the floor and kick your little legs and roll
  • I sing to you at night when I am getting you to sleep and you will just listen so hard while you fight sleep.... You HATE to go to sleep!
  • You blow bubbles like a bubble machine
  • You are still a big talker and I just can't to hear what you have to say!
  • You love to pull and grab everything, including my hair or daddy's hair, clothes... everything!
  • You still put EVERYTHING in your mouth and love to chew on anything...especially your feet!
  • With 5 months came babyfood and you LOVE it! We started with Green Beans and you hated those and still do. You have had almost every kind... Sweet Potatoes, Squash, Peas (you don't really like those either), Carrots, Applesauce, Bananas, Prunes.. I can't think of them all but I can't tell you how much you LOVE food.
  • You are still nursing about every 3 hours.
  • You love to laugh and we love to hear you laugh!
  • I just can't begin to explain what a great baby you are... you are so happy and good... just perfect! I love you more than words can say and can't imagine my life without you.

See what I mean about the feet!


My precious little man! Oh how I love him!

Introducing... Jetti Reindeer

This is my Jetti Reindeer... Is this not the cutest thing you have ever seen?? My brother killed a deer on Thursday and Jett is sporting his antlers. He is starting to recognize a camera so he is always posing and giving his biggest smile.
