The D-man had a checkup today, he's 20 lbs, 12 ozs, 30 & 3/4 inches long and he got a DPT shot today. (We didn't start shots until 6 months and then we only do one at a time so I can tell if he has a reaction and what he's reacting to, we did ZaZa the same way).
MIL is doing better! She's home, healing, and doing her level best to follow the doctor's orders. D and I spent most of the day with her today since she can't lift, climb stairs, or bend over to pick things up. He served as the cheerful, cute distraction while I did some dishes, got her mail, and we had lots of girly talk. We're going back over tomorrow to decorate the house for Thanksgiving since the in-laws are hosting, Bogie's cousin will be helping me and we'll raid MIL's stash of Autumn decor. good times.
A safety-pin (thanks, Sooz!) pinned through the top of her zipper has kept ZaZa from being able to unzip her sleepers, so I have been able to catch up with the laundry and stop cleaning up puddles from the carpet. I'm going to have to get some more, because I only had two and Bogie misplaced one.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for Christmas, my whole family is coming here so not only do I get to host my very first Christmas but we don't have to travel!!! (Don't get me wrong, Bogie and I love road trips, just not with a "jack russel" of a 2 year old, and a teething 8 month old in tow.) and if those weren't enough reasons to be excited, it's CHRISTMAS! teehee. my favorite season, and the most wonderful time of the year. cue Burl Ives! I have to figure out where in the world I'm going to put the tree, last year it was sitting exactly where I'm sitting right now. We can't have that, I can't type witty updates with an evergreen all up in my business.
have a holly jolly christmas...okay, I'll stop now.
you have been updated!
in summation, my child is a giant, my mother-in-law is doing better, safety pins have stopped the peeing, and Christmas rocks my socks off.
Carla is out. Peace! (phineas & ferb, anyone? no? hey. where's perry?)
