Whew, the holidays

Well, I've finished with 1st christmas. That one was here at my parent's in Texas. I had to work xmas day, so I got up an hour early and everyone got up with me. We opened presents pretty quickly and then I ran off to work. I'm pretty sure that everyone else got to take a nap while I worked on my feet for 12 hours. :) It was worth it though.
Eric and Rowan had 1st christmas too. They opened a few presents and went to dinner at one of our neighbor's house. Rowan of course took all the attention over there. He enjoys being in big groups of people.
On the other hand, Eric dug up some potatoes that he grew this year. This is the picture of one that he found. I'm reasonably sure that our soil is not contaminated with any radioactive waste. It should be just a normal over grown potato :) I think they ate it. We'll see if Rowan gets a growth spurt.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy christmas with their family and friends.

New picture

Here's a picture of Rowan. He loves to climb all over the dogs all the time. They're not so sure about it, but they do really well with him.
Apparently, he really likes grapes. He knows the sign for grapes and makes the sign all the time for Eric. Of course they have not had any grapes for a long time, but Rowan still remembers them and keeps asking for them. It's become a joke between them. Rowan signs "grapes?" and Eric says "nope, no grapes in the house" and Rowan laughs. Hope springs eternal I guess :)
I've been busy working extra shifts to help out at work. It's good for me too, or at least good for the wallet. I'm tired tho.

The busy season

The christmas rush is upon me. I have been working a lot at the hospital. I try to pick up a few shifts, but when they need me, I'm tired, and when I can work, they don't need me. Seems crazy. Mom and I have been busy at the house baking and setting up decorations. We have the outside ones up, and will move to the inside ones shortly. Mostly, I'm just trying to stay busy to not miss my guys. They are doing really well.
Rowan has transitioned to one nap a day. I'm not sure if that's easier or harder :) Eric is teaching him all kinds of animal sounds. He now knows owl (whoo whoo), snake (sssssss), goat (hahaha), and wolf (ooow ooow). I think it's really cute and funny. Eric says whenever he sees an animal in a book or when he's out, he makes their sound. I guess lots of animals look like horses to him, he neighs a lot :)
Eric is very busy trying to keep the cats away from Rowan. I hear he likes to throw things at the cats and pull on their tails. Hopefully that won't continue for very long.
I don't have any pictures right now, Eric hasn't had time to send me any. Oh, but the other news is that Rowan is finally getting another tooth. So all that crankiness and fussiness has been for a reason. Whew! I thought we might have to return him for another model if that didn't stop soon! Just kidding!
Love to everyone and Merry Christmas!!
