First post of 2009!

As you may have noticed, I've been taking a little break from the computer this past week to enjoy the holidays with my family. It's been absolutely wonderful, and I can't wait to have time to upload pictures and share some of the special memories that were made.

Ollie apparently wished for his two front teeth for Christmas. Although he hasn't received them yet, we've still been in the throes of extreme fussiness, so tons of snuggling and nursing. It's served as a lovely reminder, though, that despite this crazy time of year, nothing is more important that slowing down and just living in the moment. :)

And there goes Oliver again, who just finished his 5 minute nap for the evening. Hopefully he'll start taking longer naps soon so I can have two hands for typing again!

Hope it gets better with the teething. Dallas Renee has been getting her back teeth and the sleep sitiuation was like having a newborn. She wanted to stay on the ninnie and she will not sleep with me. She is the funniest one out of all three she likes her bed only.lol We go through popsicles like crazy, I sit her in the tub and let her drip everywhere. Angie

I have to tell you that I always want to confuse you with Annie at Junior Mints and Reeses. And her "elf on a shelf" this year was named Ollie, so now you've really got my mind twisted!

Good for you for taking the break. I just blogged about how we cocooned a bit over the holidays as well.
