We apparently have a lot of Christmas themed stuffed animals. Next year I plan on decorating CJ's room with these. I also plan on making a Christmas tree forest every year. There is the start of it on the left side. Don't you just love the three wise men? I love them. We got them at the Christmas Tree Shops.
I love this tree! Craig and I got married two days after Christmas. We asked our guests not to bring any presents except for a small ornament to start our Christmas decoration collection. So that is what on this tree. They're mostly white so I thought they'd look nice on the all-white tree.
At CJ's age, the house can get a mess. It is really hard to keep up with it. The only cleaning secret I have is that I pick up as I go. If I'm going in a room, I grab something from the room I am currently in that has to go into the room. Once the baby goes to bed, I do a thorough clean sweep. Well, relatively thorough. I like a lived-in home.
In other, un-holiday-related news, CJ is teething like whoa. He woke up for 3 nights in a row and we couldn't figure out why. Finally, I poked my finger along and his gums and found bumps bumps bumps. The poor thing. I've been giving him a little Tylenol before bed and he seems to be sleeping much better. He got one more tooth along the bottom right, but I expect by the end of the week he'll have 3 or 4 more. Poor guy. He doesn't look too upset here though, because he has "sgettis".
Here's my new favorite picture of the stinkybutt. Giving mama kisses. He loves to give kisses. For some reason he puckers just his bottom lip. Adorable. I make good babies.
