Jameson's First Christmas!

Well our Christmas holiday started off with a "Bang" and not in a good way!  We planned to leave our house for the 3 hour trek to my dad's at 9 am on Thursday morning so that we would be there for lunch.  That didn't happen!

I woke up Thursday morning with pink eye.  I automatically knew where I got it and couldn't believe a simple hug would contaminate me!!  So no big deal right?  I will just run to CVS and see the nurse practitioner to get my prescription.  I go to the new CVS by my house and apparently they don't have a clinic, so on to the next closest CVS and guess what...they don't have one either.  Frustrated to tears at this point I drive to a CVS that I know has a clinic, get Jameson out of his car seat, walk in and there is a big sign hanging there "Nurse running late, ask Pharmacy for details".  I ask the Pharmacist "She didn't show up today so we are trying to find a replacement".

At this point, I have been driving around dragging Jameson in and out of the car for an hour!  I have a complete meltdown.  I am late for leaving town, I have pink eye, Jameson most likely will get it too, it will ruin his first Christmas because he can't play with his cousins and now I can't get medicine!  SO what do I do?  Go home and put Jameson down for a nap and sulk instead of packing to leave.

Another hour goes by and I finally get packed when the phone rings.  Zack wants to go see his Grandpa for Christmas before we leave town.  I figure we may as well; I am already 2.5 hours behind and there is a Clinic next to their house.  We go for a nice visit with his grandpa then head to the Clinic where I finally get my prescription.  Now 4 hours behind we head out of town.

We had a nice afternoon of traveling and visiting with my dad then went to dinner.  Dinner was delicious, yummy Mexican food.  Back to my dad's, put Jameson in bed, then at 11 we went to bed.  Jameson woke up at 11:30 screaming, nothing I could do would calm him down.  His teeth really were hurting him.  Finally around 1am he falls asleep and I return to bed.  I turned to Zack and said "that was the perfect ending to a horrible day" with much sarcasm.  Well I shouldn't have said that because 30 minutes later Zack sits up in bed "I don't feel good" then immediately runs to the bathroom.  He had what we thought was food poisoning from our delicious Mexican dinner and was up all night long which meant I slept very little.  Turned out to be the flu.
Zack wasn't himself all weekend which made the holiday not as much fun.

That was our first day of Christmas Vacation!  Really the rest of the day's went smoothly.  Jameson was completely spoiled and got a ridiculous amount of toys.
All his toys!
The most Handsome little Santa Ever!
Opening Presents
Crawling through the trash
Playing with his new toy from Aunt Ashley

I forgot to mention our visit with Santa!  Jameson was terrified!  This picture didn't turn out too bad but he cried the whole time :)

Happy Holidays!

Once again I am a slacker!  Life is just so hectic with an almost 1 year old that it is hard to find time to blog.  Maybe one of my New Year's resolutions will be to make time to blog?  Anyways, for now here is a quick update on us.

Jameson is all over the place!  Crawling, standing, walking along the sofa, up the stairs, down the stairs (even falling down the stairs).  Yes, you heard me, falling :(  Thankfully he wasn't hurt, he actually pushed the baby gate over and rode it all the way down the stairs.  Thankfully Ninja Mommy reflexes were fast and I caught him mid cartwheel at the bottom of the stairs!  I had a panic moment and blamed it all on Zack of course :)

Thanksgiving was a bit more eventful that usual.  Zack's grandmother passed away a few days before so between visitations, funerals and lots of family in town it was crazy but honestly I really enjoyed having all of the family together.  It made for a very successful holiday dinner.

Lets see...Jameson now has 3 teeth and still has 3 more coming in at the moment.

Jameson has the cute little Miss America wave again and his little personality is just shining through.  He is going to be mister social, I can already tell!  We went to dinner a couple nights ago and he was a hit with everyone.  People kept stopping and telling us how adorable he was and Jameson just smiled and waved.

Jameson met Santa yesterday and I was so surprised when he was scared of Santa.  He has never been afraid to go to anyone.  Hopefully the pictures turn out!

He turned 11 months yesterday!  Only 1 more month until the big day!!  I am planning a big frog themed shindig for him. I will be sure to post pictures of it.  I can already feel a panic attack coming on just thinking about my baby being 1!!  That should make for a good blog entry.  Here is the invite...



That is the very truncated version of us.  So ta ta for now!
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (you know in case I slack some more)!
