so much to do and so little time to do it

Fa la la la la, bah humbug, and all that good stuff. Christmas is six days away and I have toooooo much to do. I have almost all of our presents bought. I think the only person left on our list is my mother-in-law. We know what we want to buy her, it's just a matter of getting to the store to do it. Oh....and I should probably finish shopping for my hubby. Next...I have to wrap all the presents. If it was just a couple, it wouldn't be bad...but there's alot. I think I may put my hubby in charge of this. What else? I have to box up some presents to send to my sister-in-law and her family in NH. I have to finish baking my cookies. And in between all this I have to clean my house. UGH!! Then I have to get ready for my little man's first birthday on January 6. We're just going to have a little get together, but I'll probably go overboard like I usually do!! Oh well....they only have this first birthday once!? So if I make it through Christmas and my little man's first birthday without going crazy, it will be a miracle!! Well, it's almost time to leave work for the day, so I better try to get something done. TTFN!

Matthew the Model

Well, I'm a very bad blogger. I have not posted on here since July 2, but since nobody knows about my blog yet, I think I'm ok!!! Anyway, my little man is almost 11 months old. Where has this year gone? We finally took him to get his pictures taken (for the first time~I'm a terrible parent!!) in October. The results were great. You're never sure how kids are going to react...but my little man couldn't have been better! The first two pictures were taken this time.As you can see from the pictures, he was all smiles the whole time!!! These two have been voted the favorites...what do you think?

We then took him to have his pictures taken AGAIN this month, only this time was for Christmas. Yes, once I start doing something I can be a little, ok a lot, excessive!! As not to spoil the wonderful pictures I'm going to be sending to family and friends, I'm only posting one from that session...the bottom one.. The second time went well, but by the end my little man had had enough and was ready to roll off the "stage" and crawl to his stroller!
My little man's 1st birthday is coming up in a little over a month, and I'm already planning what we can do for those pictures. We won't be going to the same place we had these two sets taken. My hubby's work gave us gift certificates to go to another studio, so we'll see how those turn out when we have them done.
Well, it's getting late, so I'm going to leave for now. I'm going to try to make it to this blog a little more frequently than once every five months. time.

Time to Move

Life is never dull in our household!!! I know everyone has their own trials to go through, but I really feel like we have gotten our fair share in the past year. On Friday our landlord came over and gave us a notice that we have to be out of our apartment by July 31. UGH!!! He sold one of his other properties and needs to move the tenants he had in there into two in my building. So our little family has to find a new place to live. We have been looking to buy our own place, but we have only been at it for a few weeks now. So what is the likelihood that we will find a place to live in the next 29 days, have a closing, pack our apartment up, and move to the new place??? Slim....very slim!!! So it looks like we are going to be putting our stuff in storage...somewhere...and living with family until we can find something suitable. Off to house hunt.....keeping my fingers crossed that we can look at a couple places we found online!!!

My First Post

I've been reading a few blogs for a while now, so I thought...."why don't I start one?" So here we are. I guess I can start by giving a little information about myself and "my new little family." I have been married to my wonderful husband, Sean, for 3 years....since May 15, 2004. We have been together since November 2000. We just had our first child, Matthew Edward, in January. What was a normal pregnancy for 36 weeks turned into quite an adventure. At that time they found out that Matthew had an Interupted Aortic Arch and a Ventricular Septal Defect. When he was six-days old, he underwent open-heart surgery to repair these problems. He came through the surgery with flying colors, and he has been doing wonderful ever since. Every day I wake up in the morning and realize how blessed I am to have him. He is developing quite a personality....he's my little man!!! He has added so much to my life in his short time in this world!!! I can't wait to see what is to come!!!
