Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!! It's official, I am old! This is the first year since I was little that I missed the welcoming of the New Year. After a late trip to the store Jason fixed us an amazing dinner while I put bug to sleep. After he went down we had grilled pork chops with caramelized onions on top, baked potatoes, garlic croissants, a krab cheese ball for an appetizer and kewl ( sorry for the spelling) salad. It was very yummy!! We cleaned up dinner and went upstairs to watch TV. I fell asleep around 11:15 and woke up at midnight to the sound of fireworks going off. I briefly rolled over to kiss my sweetheart and back to bed I went until Alex woke me up at 7:15 this morning. Yes he slept through the night again, let's not jinx it!! Yup what an exciting night huh? I hope you did something fun.

On New Years I always take a minute to look back over the year and towards the future. Last year brought us the best gift no money could ever buy. Alex has brought our family loads of joy and laughter. I look forward to watching his firsts during 2008. To look back I remember New Year of 2000, I was pretty down that year. I went to bed shortly after midnight wondering where my life would take me. I was anxious for the arriving of my niece Shae ( her b-day is the 5th). Little did I know that I would meet my handsome hubby only months later and create a life together that would put me here in 2008 a wife and a mother with lots to be thankful for.
Do you have resolutions for the New Year? I do, different than ever before though. I will share them with you in the next few days. I hope that you have a Happy New Year! I will leave you with a few pictures from the past week.

Alex's surprised look! Here he is in the tub. He usually takes showers with Dad so this was a rare occasion, he still isn't sure he likes it.

He finally warmed up to the idea and seems to be enjoying his bath here.

Here is Alex caught being naughty. It's hard to be mad at a cute face like that. We have had problems changing his diaper the past few days because he constantly rolls over on his tummy. I managed to put this diaper on while he was on his tummy. It wasn't easy!!

I hate it when they make it hard to change them. Sye likes to dig his heels into the carpet, arch his back, and push away, leaving the diaper nicely at his ankles. Boy is your guy cute though. I just want to squeeze him!
