Yesterday was Wyatt's first Thanksgiving. We went to my in-laws house, and had a wonderful day. Wyatt tried some turkey, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and whipped cream. He's favorites were the turkey and pie. I guess all the excitement kept him up, because he hardly napped at all and we had a hard time getting him to go to bed. He was overly tired and cranky. But, overall it was a great day. I am just so excited about Christmas now. My husband is at home today putting up the tree. And we are having another Thanksgiving dinner tonight with my Dad. I think Wyatt is going to have a great first Christmas. It really feels like this will be our 1st Christmas as "Family" because before Wyatt was here seemed different. I am unfortunately stuck at work, just counting down the minutes until I can get out of here. :)

I took Wyatt today to the mall to have his first picture taken with Santa. They got one good picture before he started crying. When we first arrived I was worried, but thought he would do good because he smiled at Santa. But, once I set him down on his lap he got concerned. They got his picture right before he started crying.

Wyatt is 7 months old today! Where has the time gone?!? Is it crazy of me to already be thinking of #2? Some days it seems like everyone is getting pregnant! And I really miss it. Wyatt has been so amazing, would it be tempting fate to think we could have another child as wonderful as he? And a healthy pregnancy, and speedy recovery?!? I know for sure I want to have at least 1 other child. I have a sister, and I loved that experience growing up. I really don't want Wyatt to be an only child. But, when is the right time? My husband, Adam, and I have both agreed to wait until Wyatt is 1 year old, to start really thinking of when to try for #2. But, I still can't help thinking of it all the time. However, since I had a c-section, I'm in no hurry to get pregnant again. And for many reasons, including finances, I think August would be a great time to conceive again. That would make Wyatt and baby #2 about 25 months apart. Do you think that is too close?!? I originally always said I wanted to wait 3 years before getting pregnant again, but that was before Wyatt was born. Now, I can't wait to experience it all again, and give Wyatt a little brother or sister... I guess when it's time we will just know.
Today, I stumbled across a really cute blog, Who Says 8 is Enough?. And Sundays are Baby Picture Sunday, so I thought I would join in the fun. This weeks theme is Buddha Bellies! You can join in the fun too, by checking out her blog here. Here is Wyatt's buddha belly! (I couldn't pick just one.)

Last night Wyatt had his first injury! It scared me half to death. The little guy has been so adventurous lately. He has been trying to climb up and over anything and everything. Well, last night he tried to climb up onto the lower level of the coffee table, and he slipped. He smacked his face right into the table. I quickly picked him up to hug and console him. Then I notice his nose was bleeding!!!! Poor little guy. Thankfully it only bled for a few seconds, and he calmed down very quickly. He is doing fine today, but I just felt awful! I'm sure it's only the first of many boo-boo's to come. As I can already tell he is going to be a handful!
