And good-bye 2006. She was full of doctor's appointments, visits with family, learning the ropes at daycare, and firsts for most everything including: holding our heads up, sleeping through the night, smiling, crawling, walking, and eating real food. We hear that 2007 will be a pretty big one too. Hold on to your hats.
We learned that chocolate pudding is good and so is rice pudding. Although raisins aren't too forgiving in baby's immature system... Dad is a bit upset with our love of puddings, but mom is thrilled to have someone to share with. We learned how to open gifts. Once for our birthday and again two weeks later for Christmas. Mom says she now lives in a plastic prison. Everyone said it would be so, and it was. Wrapping paper is awesome. So is bubble wrap, but we'll tell you about that another time.
2006 was also the year for both of us to get our first teeth, but they're small enough still that mom gets to see our toothless grins from time-to-time.
And, she did it. Mother went and bought us hats for Christmas. Doesn't she know that is about the most cruel gift imaginable for a boy? We tried to smile about it anyway. If you use your imagination, hats can be turned into all sorts of play things. Or maybe this is the hat I'm supposed to hold on to in the coming year?
