Weekly (and a little more) WrapUp #1

So, I've been horrible at posting on the blog. Especially since I've discovered the ease and simplicity of Facebook. With that, my new goal is to post here at least once a week in the form of a weekly wrapup. Hopefully this will keep everyone up to date and document BabyBoy's journey to the world.

*I started feeling BabyBoy moving around about two weeks ago. It is one of my favorite parts of pregnancy...well, until it gets uncomfortable!

*Eli is using more two- and three-word phrases now. He's changing everyday. I love staying home with him and watching him learn and grow. Despite the impending "twos," he is a joy and we have a blast together. He's even becoming a great helper...unloading the dishwasher, loading the washer and dryer, cleaning up toys, and holding the dustpan just to name a few

*BabyBoy has been named and we will announce that name as soon as we can let the whole family know first!

*Jacob is SOO excited about Christmas break. He can't wait to spend time with his family, near and far and get some time away from school.

*Matt is adjusting to his new position at Wells Fargo. It is different and sometimes a challenge, but his work ethic is amazing and he's trying to look at the bright side. We are blessed that he is in a much more stable position within the company and layoffs are no longer an impending risk

*Our lights are up and the house is decorated for Christmas. After some initial touchy moments that could have been very bad between Eli and the tree, we've come to a "one-finger-touch" agreement and things are good

*Bonus Sweet Moment: The boys were playing around Wedndesday night when they bumped heads. Jacob said, "owww!" So, Eli leaned over and kissed his "boo-boo" on his forehead. Awwwwww! I just love those moments

So, take care this week, and we'll catch up again soon!!
