Our New Year's Baby
We've almost recovered from our all night soiree with 20 teenagers. The Christmas stuff is boxed back up and put away, and college football has been on the television for two days straight. Just the goings on around our house. It's all been between a lot of naps catching up on the sleep we missed.
I think I talk a lot about how cute he is, but I need to mention how SMART he's getting. He knows the word "no" and he's starting to recognize a couple baby signs. Baby sign language is something that I love, I used it with the infants I worked with at the day care years ago and have started a few beginning words with Max. We are working on "all done," "eat," "more," and a few others that I can't think of at the moment.
I finally roasted the pumpkin I've had in the garage since October (I was told it would last until late January as long as it didn't freeze) and it is absolutely delicious. Max has been having some at meal times and I'll be splitting it up after making a round of pumpkin bread and pumpkin cookies.
I also twisted a Christmas absolute in my house. Black Forest Pie is the easiest of pies, but also one of my favorites. This year I made Black Forest Trifle. Yum!
One last thing I finished up before Christmas (it got mailed after Christmas though). A baby girl blanket. I've decided I don't like working with thermal. But it is really cute.
