Merry Christmas and Hopes for a Good 2014

Max is now 3 months old and I am wondering where the time has gone. I am for the most part a SAHM now and I spend much of my day just cuddling with him. Not getting much else done, but I think that is okay for now. He is growing so fast. He is so long that he is starting to outgrow most of his 3-6 month clothes already. He is smiling all the time now, especially in the mornings. That is also probably my favorite time of day with him because he always wakes up so happy.

Christmas, like the last few years was pretty mellow for us, although it was so wonderful to finally have a baby at home for it. This year we were at a friends cabin with a few of our closest friends who have been there the last couple years for us. They love Max just like they love Liam and Evelynn.

New Years Eve, tonight, is even mellower than Christmas. We are just hanging out at home working on Max's bedtime. Since losing Liam New Years Eve has definitely become one of my least favorite times of the year. It's also hard to believe that at this time last year Jessica was just starting her IVF meds and the whole gestational carrier process was finally underway. 2013 has definitely been a better year than the last couple have been and I can only hope 2014 will be good as well.
