Oh Christmas Tree

Nathan got so many awesome gifts this year for Christmas. Adorable outfits, great books and a Magna Doodle he hasn't put down since it came out of the box. Most importantly, he didn't get one single gift that makes noise or requires batteries!! (Thanks for reading Mama and Dada's letter, Santa!!)

But the best gift might just be the smallest one. Stuck inside Nathan's stocking was a new ornament, that just so happened to look exactly like him! My sister's talented friend makes these. All you do is send her a photo of your loved one and she makes you a unique, one of a kind ornament you can treasure forever.

Our tree looked pretty good already, but with this little guy hanging on it now, it's even better.

The other day while I was changing Nathan's "messy" diaper, he managed to reach into the diaper bag, grab a banana, peel it and start eating it.

Brings whole new meaning to the expression "In one end, out the other".

Mommy Brain

After nearly 10 years of walking everywhere in the city (Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor gloom of night"), it's not only nice to have a car again but having an underground attached garage to park it in?? That's just icing on the cake.

But between watching Nathan all day, freelancing on the weekends, going to school and doing homework at night, and trying to finish my Christmas shopping somewhere in between... I have had a major case of Mommy Brain. I can't believe how many times I have gathered my stuff, sometimes a diaper bag, a purse, a duffel bag AND a baby.... all the way down to the garage to remember that I actually parked out on the street. Tonight when I got home from class, there was a spot right at my front door which is technically closer to my apt then my garage spot, so I grabbed it. But I know tomorrow morning when Nathan and I are rushing out the door, I will automatically head for the garage.

Enter: Mommy Brain Post It Notes. This is my life.
