Yes, I do realize that today is the day after Christmas but I am still blessed and thankful. Still feeling a bit of the holiday spirit, I might say. Tired of hearing Christmas music but still feeling the spirit nonetheless. Growing up, my family never really celebrated Christmas. My family was also not of the Christian religion(s). My dad tried to assimilate by buying my brothers, cousins & I Christmas gifts each year. Yes, we were grateful but to be absolutely honest, Christmas to us meant presents. Unfortunately, that's not really what Christmas is about.
A couple years ago, I started cooking Christmas Eve dinner. & this year, I decided that I'm going to keep it up & we're going to make a tradition out it. We had dinner Christmas Eve & just hung out all day Christmas. It was a fabulous Christmas. The best. & I received a pretty darn good gift!
Evan learned how to roll over from his tummy to his back! I'm so proud of my baby boy! & let me tell you, he was proud of himself. After he had rolled over, he just laid there and laughed :) :) :)
So last night, after he realized that he can save himself after he rolls over onto his tummy, he wouldn't go to sleep & just rolled around in his pack & play for an hour. He would not go to sleep & just wanted to play. So we played for a little bit. It was great. Ohh, the joys of parenthood.
This was the best Christmas ever.
So far ..
