2010...Ready Or Not, Here We Come!!!

I have been feeling the Blogger blues as of late. Don't know why, just doesn't feel like there's much to say. However, our life has been going full steam ahead with fun times, silly things and lots of Holiday festivities to keep us busy so I'm not sure where the lull is coming from. Maybe I'm just tired! :)

We had a fantastically mellow Christmas with my family and Eli was definitely in the Christmas spirit this year and loved every minute of it. Today he told me he wished he could have another advent calendar! I'm sure it had more to do with the fact that he got to eat chocolate every morning for 24 days in December, than anything else! The "Scrylerbs" as we affectionately call my immediate family now (Scrantons, Tylers, Herbs...established in that order) had a second year of matching "cozies". I'm wondering if there's a tradition forming...Dad?! Eli thinks this is great, of course, and requests (or rather requires) all of us to have them on at the the same time!

And on to the new year....

We have lots to look forward to this year. Eli will be 3 in March and will become a big brother in June! We have been talking to him more and more about this new baby that will be a part of our family and I'm not sure he's convinced. A few weeks ago I asked him if he was excited to have a new baby soon and he said, "I don't want a baby! I want a little boy that can run around!" I fear we'll have lots of disappointment on our hands when the baby is born...a baby! Tonight we asked him if he'd like a baby brother or baby sister. After assuring us he'd rather have a "boy that can run around" than a baby, he says, "a baby boy...cause that's the rules!" And his choice for names? Shrugget! He often uses this name when he's playing but we're pretty sure that one will get vetoed!

Christmas excitement

Testing out his new wheels

Breeaking in his New Year's Eve dancing shoes!

Boys and mama's heels. My nephes did the same thing. Chalrie is already a pro at walking in them.

I was waiting for you to make a formal announcement so I can congratulate you! I'm voting for a girl.

And whether it was intended or not, I think the age space between the kids is PERFECT! I'm sure you've seen it when around your friends, but taking care of small toddler while pregnant and then of a newborn is the hardest thing I've ever done. Ever.

(A) Finally!!!! Like Daniella, I've been waiting for you to make a formal announcement too. :o) CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

(B) I happen to think that Shrugget Tyler is a perfectly acceptable name. I'm with Eli on this one.

(C) How in the world did Grant let you post pictures of Eli in heels?!?!?!? That is so precious!

Congratulations! I usually blog read while nursing my own babe so I never get a chance to comment! I finally remembered to come back when I can type and say congrats to you! Hope you are feeling okay and able to keep up with Eli while doing all the work to make that baby! Do you know what you are having???
