"Those were the best days of my life..."

I decided to take a break from eating my son's Goldfish crackers {shame} and window shopping/potentially Christmas shopping on Etsy to blog about eating crackers and window shopping.

You're welcome.

Today was a pretty easy day spent with my little family! I let Pete sleep in since he starts nights this week (boo) and will have to start getting used to being nocternal. That meant a quiet morning with PJ in which we ate breakfast together, sang along with the CD of Sesame Street music his Aunt Marla got him (it says his name!!), and practiced "walking" before his morning nap!

Thankfully, I was also able to be in Get Shit Done mode, cleaning the kitchen, cleaning out our desk, doing laundry and straightening up PJ's room! There's still a TON  left to do, but hear me now: It WILL be done by Thanksgiving so we can gear up for the holidays! That means having a house that's clean and orgainzed so we can set up our tree/Hanakkah decorations and have enough room for PJ's bithday/Hanakkah/Christmas gifts! Pete and I have these excited talks about what toys will be banished for new ones! Hey, Exersaucer? Pffft. You're outta here!
Or, well, moving to the basement to wait for the next little Latini to play with you, anyway! :-P

I can hardly believe the year is almost over- just over a month until New Year's Eve! Last year, I fell asleep on the couch right before the ball dropped! PJ was still brand-new and only weighed seven pounds, I was a sleep-deprived, nervous, happy new mama who was just getting her legs under her, and our time together was just starting out! This year, that teeny newborn has morphed into a tall, blonde, smiling, over twenty pound baby boy and the Mama is a little less sleep deprived, still completely happy,  and a little more confidant in her mothering skills! This has been the sweetest time of my entire life and it went by in the blink of an eye!

Just five more days until this little dude is one!
