Merry Christmas!

Santa came a few days early to the Irish house this year. Because this baby seems to like the womb and refuses to come out by himself, Christmas morning came on Sunday for Dylan. He was still a little too young last year to get the whole present thing but this year he caught on fast. It was so much fun watching him get so excited over each little toy he opened. It all culminated to him unwrapping him the trike he had been begging for for months. He has been riding it all over the house and has even started to get a hang of peddling! To top everything off, Dad and Dylan went out to play in the white Christmas snow (perfect timing!). Today was Dylan's last day being an only child so Jeff and I spent the day with him taking him out for lunch followed by a mom and Dylan cuddle session/nap, and ended with baking sugar cookies after dinner. As ready as I am to get this baby out of me I can't help but feel some -or maybe a lot of-  anxiety about bringing home a little baby that is guaranteed to completely change Dylan's little world, and probably not for the better for the first few months. I know he'll thank me later (maybe) and anyway, it's too late now! Wish me luck, in 12 hours I'll have a new baby!

Snow Day!

Dylan had his first snow sledding experience today. Last year he was just a little too small to really enjoy the snow but he is already loving it this year! After and hour or so of sleigh rides behind a 4-wheeler and Dad pulling him around the neighborhood in and out of gutters he still wasn't ready to come in.

And for those of you wondering if I'm still pregnant the answer is an unfortunate yes. A week form Tuesday is my scheduled induction date so I don't have much longer. Cross your fingers that I go into labor before then, the hospital is not where I want to spend my Christmas.
