Thanksgiving and December Fun

Today was a BAD day.....

Not because it was raining, or that my cell phone decided to kaput on me......

It was because in the 19 months that Max has been my son, this was the first (yes, I know, I am spoiled) night that Max woke up every 20-30 minutes.  After bringing him into bed with us, he found it necessary to lay with me cheek to cheek and would only fall asleep this way.  So despite the drool, sweaty body, snoring and snot, I allowed it and I even fell asleep for a few minutes.  As I was hoping for a nice long nap (which Max will usually take for 3 hours), I only managed another 20 minute nap.  And was Max a miserable mess all day?  No.  He was playful and funny.  He ate REALLY well and even cheered at his Wheel of Fortune.

So all is forgiven.  I am just hoping ONE night of sleep.  YAWN.....

And just when we think Max is at his best, he gets even better.  With Tyson working more and more, Max and I are ALWAYS having fun.  When Daddy does have a day off, we soak up every minute by having FUN, laughing, eating, running, and exploring.  

I just love these adorable Dinosaur foot pajamas
