Looking sharp

Just a cute pic - I love this outfit!

Terrible Tree Tragedy

My New Year's Resolution for 2008 is never to buy a Christmas tree for 15 dollars again!!! Our tree was a different kind than we usually buy and was so prickly it almost hurt to decorate. THEN it stopped drinking water and dried out. THEN when we tried to take it outside it decided to drop needles all over our living room floor. So I have almost broken two vacuum cleaners trying to clean the mess. Today I spent a LONG time on my hands and knees with a shop vac and a one inch hose trying to get the needles out. There are STILL some left. Am I happy? No.

Fun Times

Last night we got a babysitter and went out for cheesecake on the plaza. It was cold but worth it for the brownie sundae cheesecake I had. It had brownie, cheesecake, white chocolate truffle, milk chocolate truffle and hot fudge on top. mmmmmm. Then this morning Eóin had fun playing with daddy and grandma and his new toys :-) Here are some pics. There is a video too but I will have to wait until I am on my own computer to put that on (I am using Jonathan's mam's).

It turns into a bike thingy!

Lights on the Plaza and random car :-)

Two Things

Jonathan's family all arrived this weekend for Christmas, so we have quite a full house. Half the crowd is staying at Christina and Eric's, so at least we're sharing the load. It's weird having our parents coming to us instead of going to them :-)

Our wacky son, being a goofball:

A Christmas song, for your enjoyment:

Ten Months and Update

Well, on Saturday, Eóin turned ten months old. I can't believe it. He has been busy learning these last few months. He is standing by himself more and more and has tried to take a few steps by himself - Walking is not far away! We also got the all clear on the RSV from the doctor on Monday - He said he was surprised at how quickly he healed - Praise the Lord! It's been a while since I updates his "profile" and he has changed quite a bit since the last one so here are a few facts :0)

Name: Eóin William
Age: 10 months
Favorite Toy: Winnie the Pooh ball, shoes with laces and the piano 
Favorite Game: Bouncing the ball - I can't believe he learned how to do this and he will bounce it back and forth with me for ages! Football (soccer)
Favorite Song: Ring Around the Roses, Eency Weency Spider
Favorite Food: Cheerios, Veggies, Ice-cream

Here are some pics from the last week or so.

A Day in the Life...

Well, ever since our Mac broke down, I know the grannies have been going through baby withdrawal :-) Here is a little video of Eoin's day. Obviously he had some good moments and some not so good!! Enjoy :)

Christmas Tree and Prayer Request

Well after only 4 days sitting in our living room naked, I finally clothed our Christmas tree with it's seasonal attire :-)I put some pics below.
On a sadder note, please keep Eoin in prayer. We went to the doctor today and found out he has both an ear infection and RSV (a respitory virus). After taking a breathing treatment at the doctors office which he screamed the entire way through, the doctor decided to let us treat it at home instead of being hospitalized which was a huge praise! Right now we are all going on 72 hours of little to no sleep due to fever and coughing spasms. He is totally miserable so please pray that he will heal quickly.
Eoin has a few new tricks up his sleeve that we will try to get on video soon. He has been standing by himself for longer and longer periods lately which is so much fun to watch. Also Aisling gave us a toy that he can push around to practice his walking so I'll work on those vids as soon as he gets off my lap again. He has been a permanent fixture there the last two days!
