Done with the Holidays

Am I the only one happy that the holidays are over? I mean what a stressful weekend week MONTH it has been!

Jay’s first Christmas I guess I can say was a success. We were able to go shopping the day before Christmas Eve (Christmas Eve, Eve?) We went to his mom’s house to spend time with her since Chris had to work on Christmas. Jay got a whole bunch of new clothes and a teething blanket. He wasn’t really liking the teething blanket but I’m hoping he warms up to it so he has something to chew on (as if he doesn’t have enough…) and he ended up staying with her while we went shopping.

What we got was

  • A walker shaped like a monster
  • A Mickey Mouse toddler blanket
  • A 360 cup
  • The Land Before Time dvd
  • A stuffed elephant
  • A Vtech Laptop
  • Three sensory balls
  • A vibrating bug toy
  • Pacifiers (but they have magically disappeared…)
  • A Mickey Mouse solar thing
  • Mickey Mouse pajamas

Can you tell the baby like Mickey Mouse? 😂

Christmas Eve we didn’t do much. Chris had to work that day too so it was just me and the baby. My friend Alex came into town and he came over to spend some time with us. We watched Suicide Squad (Jay fell asleep during) and we just talked. On Christmas, Jay woke us up about 9am. I woke Chris up so he could watch him open gifts. He was more excited over the Mickey Mouse blanket than anything. But he did love being in his walker and played on his laptop. I put the Mickey Mouse solar thing in his window so it wouldn’t get broken and he could watch it move. Later I went with Alex to his Aunt’s house where we ate yummy food and Jay played with his favorite uncle. He was a really good baby. He ate most of the food on my plate! His aunt got me a picture frame with one of my favorite pictures of Jay and a bottle of wine! (You bet I drank it that night too! ;)) Then we went to our friend’s Bee and Zeike’s house to celebrate Christmas with them as well. We surprised Zeike (he didn’t know Alex was coming) and opened Jay’s gifts. He got…

  • Books
  • Mickey Mouse bathtub toy
  • Winter hat and gloves
  • A huge Mickey Mouse plush
  • A rainbow penguin plush
  • A handmade blanket

He was so thrilled when he saw Mickey Mouse though. That thing is bigger than him! I’ll take a picture with him next to it. He loves it! I got some gifts as well. I got a canvas I can color on and bath/foot stuff. I wasn’t expecting anything but they surprised me! It was a good weekend after all though. I got to spend it with the people I care about the most. But I am so damn glad its over and I can stress less now that Christmas is over. I do feel very blessed to have the people in my life that love and care about my son and I. They sure did make us feel special 😀
