merry christmas adam

We haven't done a whole lot today. We got dressing change out of the way first thing and then Jonah and I just kind of hung out until this afternoon. We had to go pick up our grocery order at 2:30. I know I've said that before but online grocery shopping is the bomb diggidy. I can pick out everything in about half the time, always know I'm getting the best price because you can sort by lowest unit price, and save money because I don't impulse shop. The $4.95 is totally worth it. My understanding is that you can use coupons, but I'm not sure how that works. I don't know if you have to let them know ahead of time so they wait and ring up your order or if they credit money to your next purchase. Either way, it's good stuff.

When we got home, there were flowers for me waiting on the front porch. Guess who they were from? Matt's dad! So sweet. And because they have real garland or something in them, the house smells like a Christmas tree now. Our tree is artificial, so I'm very glad to have the real smell.

Jonah did NOT sleep all night last night... not even close, actually. But we hope that last night was the fluke and not the two nights before. He refused to eat overnight though, so I'm hoping that's a good sign. More interest in sleeping than eating at night is the first step, I'd say. Guess what? Thirty-one point eight ounces today with no gushers. I'm so thankful that he's eating better. And now that I have groceries (finally), we're getting started on the solids for real. I'm going to be really relaxed about it though. He can eat how much he wants, and as soon as he starts acting disinterested, we're all done. I'm not pushing it until we HAVE to push it.

Okay, I'm not sure when I'll post again, but I'll try to get some photos up when I can. Tomorrow is our first Christmas at my Mom's house. Ham and Lima beans, here I come.

Merry Christmas Adam! (Get it? Because he came first. Get it? That one is compliments of Matt's Dad too. You're welcome.)

Jonah is on an eating roll ... that's awesome!!! I'm praying with you that last night was the fluke! But yes, you're right ... at least he didn't wake up and want to eat too!

I hope you, Matt & Jonah all have a wonderful Christmas together. I can't think of a family that deserves it more!!! Merry Christmas!

I want to come . . . I love ham and lima beans!!! Did I ever tell you I am a southern girl at heart--Mom's family is all in Alabama. Out of 8 siblings, she is the only one that left--they are all still there as are all my cousins.

Jonah is eating!!! God is good :)

Have a wonderful time at your mom's and a very Merry Christmas!


Blessings, Mari
