Jason and I (as well as DJP, if he knew) want to wish all of you a happy and healthy New Year! We spent a very quiet New Year by putting DJP to bed (a bit later than his usual time), having a wonderful dinner of steak (yum!), potatoes and green beans & almonds (my fav!) and watching two movies from pay per view on DirecTV-Easy A (about a high school girl who learns the effects of rumors and perpetuating them-very good!!!) and The A-Team (which wasn't quite the same but good for what it was).
New Year's Day was spent running some errands (must have more formula for DJP) and visiting with Mom/Grandma. DJP loved crawling around Grandma's living room and hallway but was intrigued with the door between the kitchen and living room (a pocket one) and that all the doors in the hallway were closed. You would think he wouldn't have much to get into. HA! DJP found the wires to the TV, etc. underneath an end table (he was not stopped by putting his diaper bag over top of the wires) and he also found that he could reach into Grandma's potted plants and find the dirt (so much fun to clean his fingers!)
Grandma gave DJP two Christmas presents-a stacker that has stars and plays music (he really loves to chew on the star at the top) and a stuffed puppy dog that plays music and talks about different body parts if you press on them (like the heart, foot, tummy, etc.). It even giggles when you press the tummy! We'll finish celebrating Christmas in about 1 1/2 weeks when Jason's dad and step mom come to visit. Hopefully, Mom will be feeling better and more like herself than she did in December.
