Did you make it to the last tick of the clock for 2010?
I didn’t. Scott didn’t. THANKFULLY, Carter didn’t either. We went to bed around 11pm and turned on the bedroom tv to the local news station in hopes of catching the Space Needle fireworks at midnight. The neighbors had their own glorious firework show (hello, black cats. I wish those would be banned forever) that woke us up. I bumped Scott awake. He rubbed his eyes, put on his glasses and we caught the last few minutes of the Space Needle show, said “Happy 2011” and cratered. Until 3:30am. That’s when Carter likes to party.
We decided to have an impromptu celebration to ring in 2011 with a small brunch instead of a late night gathering this year. We had a crisp, sunny day again today, the perfect winter day!
Jack & Jessica were busy telling stories about their travels back east.
While Liz & Madelyn told us about Colorado, Carter and I talked about our long trip to Texas.
Really, the moms gabbed about how their kids haven’t been sleeping well and analyzed their patterns to pieces. When did you stop swaddling? Has he found his thumb yet? Who has two teeth?? My how life has changed.
The kids really just played together.
As you can see, Jack is quite expressive. He and Madelyn kept us entertained throughout brunch.
Carter is 13 weeks in this picture, and his buddy Jack is almost 16 weeks.
Madelyn is 7 1/2 months old. The boys sure are trying to get her attention. Carter was all grins and drools when he looked at her. Myron was keeping a very close eye on those boys.
It’s hard to believe that last year at this time none of these little guys were with us yet. They’ve brightened our lives in ways we didn’t think possible. They brought such great joy to 2010 and are sure to bring even more to 2011.
Happy New Year, sweet readers! Here’s to a healthy, happy 2011.
