I'm up washing the diapers. This guide
is a lie. It said that if I bought 36 diapers I could wash every three days. I'm washing every two days and even then sometimes I run out. But I'm sure that guide is assuming that one has access to a dryer. It takes 24 hours for the prefolds to dry on our drying rack. I miss the warm weather when I could dry them on the line. Aunt Jody bought us more diapers for Christmas, so I just have to wait to get them in the mail.
Christmas was very sweet. Biggie's biggest gift was a jumperoo from his Grandpa. Matthew was so excited to get it he put it together and gave it to him three days early. "The reviews on Amazon said their babies would jump in it for hours until they fall asleep" he said. "It will give us alone time!"
"Yeah, and other people's babies fall asleep in swings, while our just looks ticked off when we put him in it," I said. I was right. He does like it-he jumps and careems wildly in it while the thing flashes lights and makes music. But he's done after about 15 minutes.
He enjoyed chewing on the wrapping paper but wasn't big on tearing it. A second tooth had joined the first one on his bottom gum!
We went to Mass on Christmas day. I like Christmas day Mass better than the day before, especially since all the churches around here have wussed out and made Midnight Mass at 9 pm. What is up with that? On Christmas day there are always enough seats and I don't have to get there an hour before. I welcome all the twice a year Catholics, but I'm just not up to fighting the crowds anymore.
Matthew got me all of my favorite things. Its like...he knows me. My favorite is the deluxe edition of Star Trek
that comes in a replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise. Little did they know when they designed it over 40 years ago that the bridge would be the perfect shape to hold DVDs.
I enjoyed not having to make a big production or hide the presents this year. I figure I have one more year before Biggie is aware of it all.
