Merry Christmas everybody!
I can't believe it is the day after Christmas already. It seems like time just flew by. I remember last year how much I was fatasizing and thinking about how this Christmas I would have our little boy running around and having fun opening presents. It seemed so far away then, and now it's already over in what seems like the blink of an eye.

Roxas decided to keep the tradition of children making their parents wake up early on Christmas morning. At about 2am he decided he wanted to wake up and be extremely unhappy until we finally got him to go to sleep about 4am. We have both been fighting this stupid sinus thing that has been going around town and I think that might have to do with some of his cranky behavior.
He wasn't over excited about all the presents under the tree, but I wouldn't really expect a 9 month old to be all that excited really. We had to help him open most of his presents but once they were opened (and put together after much frustration on my part) then he loved them. Our living room looks like a toy store exploded. He was SO spoiled it's not even funny.
We opened presents at my parents house on Christmas Eve, and he had a fun time stuffing his face with Christmas dinner. Everybody was amazed at how much he can eat! He also made a humongous mess. On Christmas day we went to my in-laws house and opened presents there. For some reason Roxas decided his gift to us was not to nap...at all...not even a little bit. He did really quite well for being so tired and overstimulated though. We didn't get him to go to sleep until about 9:00 that night, so it was a very tiring kind of day but a fun day. I can't wait until next year when he will be a little more into the presents and more aware of what is actually going on.
