a very Dikefest christmas

You've all had time to Christmas detox I hope. Please don't let this send you back into a yule tide tailspin. This just wouldn't be a true family blog without documenting the most wonderful time of the year ;) Plus it must be recorded in history that our little Sonny boy said his first legit phrase on Chirstmas day (he'll be two in one month) "eyy seh dooooooo!" (which is baby for "ready set go") I was so excited that i texted his speech therapist on the spot. Then yesterday he not only said, but simultaneously signed, "peease" (i can't help but clarify the obvious that he meant "please") It was the perfect gift! Now if we can just get him to say "momma" by Mother's day....

moving forward.

It's not that I particularly love my chin. I don't particularly hate it either. I mean...It's a chin (although adam's was a little pube-y). Yet there it has sat at the top of my page for weeks. Based on recent requests to change the "chin" picture, I am freshly posting. Thinking chinless thoughts. Are you getting scared that the subject of this post will be "chins"? (Complete with corny Chinese phonebook jokes). It probably won't be, but I never really plan ahead. For anything. Except children. But we're only about 66% on that. 

The best was the time that i left the soft focus pregnant picture of myself for like 3 weeks. It wasn't just because that picture was dreamy and Delta Burke style awesome, but it marked the first time in months that i wasn't confined to my bed from pregnancy nausea. And i took a little break because the last thing i wanted to prove was how equally exciting my life was when I wasn't too sick even to watch Gilmore GIrls re-runs (did you even know suck a sickness level existed!? Me neither.)

Our update? Sonny still drags his cute, almost 2 year old, little legs around like your 9 month old. And refuses to say anything audible but "don don don!" (when he wants you to stop picking his nose) or "Wow" for most other things.

It makes sense though, since there art so many things to be impressed with around here. Like the 45 minutes we saved in November by keeping our Christmas lights stapled to our house since Christmas 2010. WOW. Or how I read three books, which is 300% more than i've read in the last 6 months. WOW. Or when we got our new (used) tandem bike i tried to jump off the back intending on clearing the wheel well, but instead landed in the giant wire basket i forgot was there, thus marking my hamstrings with large black basket shaped reminders of how big of a spaz i am. WOW. Hopefully my neighbors were watching.

Hope you are equally enjoying the season!
