Christmas is almost here! Brayden wrote his letter to Santa and also had a very Happy St Nick day! Each day we do a different activity from our Adevent calendar...so we have been having fun and getting ourselves in the Christmas spirit!
We have been keeping busy on these long days---since we can only be outside for short spurts...so we have had some playdates and Brayden has been loving his gymnastic class...
One night the kids got to put their new ornaments on the tree---Brayden was extra excited about his new George ornament. Not quite sure how he hung it on the tree---but it stayed!
We went to see the Zoolights at Lincoln Park Zoo. It has been unseasonably warm around here---which we are MUCH enjoying! Brayden loved the lights...and of course this giant penguin (Pete as Brayden calls penguins)---which was our saving grace---since all he wanted to see was the penguins and the exhibit was closed!
Some other happenings around here...
-Brayden is all about singing and dancing--it is hysterical
_He is also a little parrot these days---sometimes I feel like I have a junior lori running around here!
-Brayden has also been going pee on the potty---we are not fulling potty training yet---I know it might sound like I am a slacker mom---but with a newborn, the holidays, and me soon to be packing up our house (we are moving early next year---yeah we got a house!!!) and going back to work---I am just not ready to fully tackle that obstacle....but we do have him go before/after nap and bath...and before bed!
-Marshall is sleeping 6-7 hour stretches at night!!!! And is seeming to be more content and happy through out the day :) He is staying awake for longer and is smiling, cooing and getting cuter and chubbier every day!
