James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

We have had a wonderful Christmas season and we sure do hope you did as well.  Wyatt is actually learning how to open the gifts.  I think he'll have it down by his 2nd birthday!  :-)
Our 6 year anniversary date to the Celtic Women's Christmas concert.  We had a very nice time.  

What I wanted to be our Christmas card but couldn't figure out how to save it so that it wasn't blurry.  I gave up and just ended up ordering a CVS drag & drop.  It still turned out cute but I prefer to make my own!  

This little stinker was sneaky at taking the ornaments off the tree.  He had to get in trouble a few times before he realized we meant "no touch" means "no touch!"

He loved the bells hanging from the front door.

He also enjoyed chewing on them.

His smile... I can't get enough! 

Always into something. 

Poppy & Nana got Wyatt a slide/swing set for Christmas.  He's loved learning to climb and slide!  He also relaxes in the swing! 
His drinking capabilities have increased A LOT!  But sadly he isn't eating quite as much as he was.  We are praying for him to begin taking in large amounts of table foods, purees and his milk!  We need more teeth for the table foods though.  

Anything and everything is a toy!  

Thanksgiving Day at our house! 

Thanksgiving night it all clicked and Wyatt started to really walk run.  He just started doing circles around the house. He loved it and so did we!  

Wyatt's eyelashes go on for days.  It's ridiculous!

He really is into everything!

And I mean everything.  

Sometimes I wonder why I bother picking anything up with a 17 month old running around right behind me pulling it all out.  And if I'm going to be honest, a lot of the time, I don't pick it up.  Haha.  Oh well... 

BUT I have some organizing goals!  James has been home from work since the day before Christmas so I've been able to just sit and workout some things I would like to implement into our daily lives.  I already made a monthly meal planning calendar.  December was the first month I've used it and it's be awesome.  I plan for the month buy only buy for a week at a time.  That's nice because if we get to week three two and I don't really feel like making what I've got on the menu, I can change it before I go to the store.  I threw away almost no wasted food this month which means we got our monies worth!  Yippie!  
I was going to add the cleaning schedule to the right of the meal planning but then changed my mind, so now I have to figure out what to put there... Hmmm...

Then today I made a cleaning schedule for the day, week, month and year!  I'll print it in an 8x10 and put in a frame and check off each task after I complete them!  Another yippie!  :-)  

Well, that's just a quick update and some pictures.  I'm hoping I'll get back to blogging more frequently.  :-)

Wyatt says "Hi"

Wyatt apologizes for lack of blogging.  He says he's been keeping mommy very,very busy!  He's doing well though!
