Christmas turned out really well. The jump-o-lene we got Emma was huge. She loved it but we had to deflate it and put it in the garage. It took up our whole living room. Emma got a little bike and big easel from Scott’s parents and a table and chair set and bookcase from mine. Plus clothes and such. Scott bought me an Epson digital picture printer that has the scanner and copier in it too. The quality still isn’t quite what it is at a professional place, but it does well for grandparent pictures and such. The meal I fixed at Christmas was way very yummy. We had ham (Honeybaked Ham), sweet potatoes and squash casserole.
Since starting back to work I have almost no time to do anything. I am barely getting hours in. I think I’m going to have to start going in the office once a week to make sure I stay on top of things. It would be nice to get a break every once in a while anyway. I just hate having to pump at work!
New Years night went by without a glance. We were in bed by 10:30. Lexi woke up at 12:08 but of course that was too late to see the ball drop. I read on the bulletin board at babycenter that some babies are already sleeping through the night! I couldn’t believe it. Lexi is still up 3 times a night. I can not wait until I can get a full night’s sleep again. I know it will be a few more months, but gosh, I am ready!
MIL and FIL came and got Emma for the afternoon. I felt bad because she said to Emma, are you ready to go? I thought they were coming over to just spend time here. Then I felt bad because I wasn’t going over to their house since I don’t really have anywhere to go. I was going to say I was coming over but then I thought of all the stuff I can get done this afternoon with her gone. Like this! But, I should move on. I have lots of straightening up to do and our checkbook hasn’t been balanced in two or three weeks!
