Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! It is the day after and the ribbons and bows have started to settle. New toys are piled everywhere as are new clothes for us all. We have spent several days with family and are happy to return to our nice, warm home. Oh yes, we had our heat go out last weekend and ... long story short it was not fixed until today, so we have been spending time with the grandparents. It was a fun new way to spend the holidays (since all the family is in town, we normally come home each night), I must admit. However, we are all happy to be home today.

Miles had a great first Christmas and has really started sitting up on his own more confidently. If he sits still (rare!), he can sit on his own for quite a while, but he usually is too busy flinging himself around after toys or someone to sit for very long.

Mason got a train table and lots of new trains for it. He is so excited that we put it together this morning. We are all having fun putting the track together! He also received a remote controlled car and is having so much fun running it all over the house! Miles is so funny -- when the car is zooming around, he watches it so intently!

On a side note, I will be taking Miles soon for a second opinion on his constipation issues. We continue to struggle in that area, even though I have not mentioned it lately. Hopefully a different doctor will give us more than "let's give it 2 more months." It has already been 6 months, what is the point of waiting 2 more and not trying anything new??? It is so hard to just sit by and watch him struggle and have terrible gas pains when he cannot go for several days at a time. But, he is a trooper and generally keeps his happy, smiling demeanor about life!

Take care and I will post some pics of the boys from Christmas very soon!
