My go-to picture of the day.  I just can't get enough of him.  I love to hold him, but I love to set him down and look at his sweet face.  I often go into the bathroom when I'm holding him so I can look at him in the mirror.  I think he's perfect!!!

I decided to try my own version of Subway art and make something fun for my friends for Christmas.  This is what I came up with.  My sweet boy insisted on helping me wrap them up tonight.  I hope they like them...

This year my sweet Brookey-Brooke fell apart when her mom didn't show up for her Halloween parade.  I've been reminded of that a million times since that day.  It's usually when I'm in the bathroom doing her hair, she reminds me.  It crushes me each time she brings it up.  I had a lot on my plate that day and it just wasn't physically possible to get there and see her parade.  Today, was her Christmas singing performance at Challenger.  She LOVES to sing.  She sings ALL day long and the same little songs over and over.  Sometimes I have to tell her to stop so that the song won't get stuck in my head.  It happens often that in the middle of the night, I find myself singing, "Every day is a happier day, when we're learning the Challenger way..." over and over going slightly insane UGGGghhh... So there was no way I'd miss this performance, even though I was nervous crowding into Room 7 with my little guy and Jett in tow, I did it.  Radd was fabulous and fell asleep in my arms half way through.  Jett was my assistant and took some video of her singing for me.  It was great!  Just before leaving, I wanted a picture.
Then when we got home she handed me the lovely present she made for me at school.  I LOVE IT!

Simply adorable!  He is the most snuggle-lee baby!!  My dream came true for sure when he entered this world.  He is 3 months old and I can hardly believe that.  With each month that goes by I freak that I'll never again have a newborn or a one month old or a two month old again to snuggle, but at the same time I'm spending so much time holding and snuggling him and enjoying the moments with him that I know it's okay.  I will have no regrets.  I remember with the other kids, I HAD to set them down to help the others, cause the others were still so little.  Now that the three older are as old as they are, I can literally just sit and hold Radd ALL DAY LONG and sometimes I do.
