On December 12th we packed you up and went to the Palmateer family Christmas at cuz'n Krista's house. We were SO excited to show you off and were glad you came in time to make it! We thought you would get passed around quite a bit, but Nana and Papa hogged you quite a bit!
On December 19th we took advantage of your excellent (daytime) sleeping habits and hopped in the car with Nana and Papa and went to Toronto to pick up your Uncle David - he was so surprised to see us there! You wanted to show off your nursing skills so I walked through the airport nursing you in your sling, which you love! We went out for dinner on the way home and Uncle David got to hold you for the first time.
Of course you slept through most of Christmas day. Nana and Papa spoiled you of course! We were surrounded in gifts, many of them for you...but you just slept and slept!
You also slept through your first New Year Eve. We spent the night at Nana and Papa's house eating way too much Chinese take-out and watching a funny movie (The Hangover). You didn't even wake up for the ball dropping! The next day, I got one more year older and celebrated my first Birthday as a Mama! It was great!
Oddly enough, despite the fact that we called you Fawn throughout my pregnancy to keep your name a secret, the nickname didn't stick. Instead, you have a couple new nicknames....Noodle and Scraggle to be exact! You also get Noodle-head, Noodle-butt and Noodleeenee (pronunced Noodle-e-knee) and when you look especially cute and I want to eat you all up you are a Noodle-tini! Scraggle can also take these forms, buy is mainly reserved for when you are being fussy. One night when you were being especially fussy and nothing seemed to sooth you, your Dad went so far as to call you "the ultimate scrag"!
So that brings us to today, you're 1 month today!
Your Daddy and I love you SO much and couldn't imagine our lives without you now. I've always wanted to be a Mum, but being YOUR Mum has been the greatest! Yes, it can be hard when you are being scraggely and waking up all night, but seeing your little noodle-head looking for me makes it all worth while!
