So it's been almost two weeks since my last substantial post. No excuses, just busy with everyday life and, of course, Christmas.
Patrick was baptized last weekend (photos forthcoming, probably in my two month letter to Patrick - eeek! Almost two months already!), so that took up a good chunk of time both before and after the event with family and friends.
We are trying to get Patrick to sleep for longer periods of time during the night. So far, we haven't been as successful as I have hoped, but it hasn't been awful. At most, he is sleeping in 4-5 hour stretches. But then again, he also has nights when he wakes up every two hours. We're working on it.
My parents are leaving in three weeks. While I am extremely grateful to them for leaving this blissful retired lives in Miami to come here to help, I think it might be time. I have to start adjusting to life with Patrick while Mike is at work. I am slowly getting back into the groove - laundry, cleaning, etc. I admire all women who are at home, watching their kids and still manage to get everything done in their houses. It's a tough job, this stay at home business.
I've been trying to finish up the Christmas shopping - I think I am finished. I just hope I don't see anything else that I just have to buy.
I've been thinking that I am going to rejoin Weight Watchers next month. Before I got pregnant, I lost 25 pounds on the points system and I still got to eat what I wanted. After Patrick, I have lost 25 pounds again, but I still want to lose more. I'm sure I will be blogging about my weight loss once the new year rolls around.
Oh! Freckle Face Girl had her baby boy last week (or was it the week before that?). He's a cutie pie. Go to her page and check out the photos she has posted of her little bundle of joy. Congrats!
One more thing - I couldn't post this weekend without adding a picture of the little punk. :) So here he is, meeting Santa Claus for the first time:
