My Holiday Break

So, I was going to post about each holiday that passed as it passed in these past couple of weeks, but time got away from me. So, here is a breakdown of my break :).

The first day of break it was a balmy 80 degrees outside so Corey and I enjoyed it by taking a little dip in his pool. I found that I can't just sit and read as he plays in his pool anymore because now he can get up and walk out of the pool. Unfortunately I cannot let him wander our backyard without constant supervision because it is still under construction.

The next day did not prove to be so warm, we actually had to done his leather jacket and winter hat.
The next couple of days were pretty laid back and relaxed. I stayed up pretty late on Christmas Eve wrapping presents, and the next morning was a lot of fun.

Corey slept longer than I did on Christmas morning, I guess I was a little excited to see how he would react to his presents.

He finally woke up and I sent him to wake up daddy, then everyone else in the house!!!!

Corey walked right past the Christmas tree...

And insisted I put on his Pooh clogs to start the day.

We finally got to the present opening, and that was a fun experience...

This bowl was totally his favorite gift, it took us forever to get him to move on to other gifts.

Later Uncle WIll and Aunt Diana came over for dinner and to give Corey his gifts. They really are feeding into my son's shoe fetish, they got him yet another (really cute!!!) pair of shoes.

Later we went to the DeRosier's of Edgewater for dessert and to exchange gifts with those kiddos. Corey got a Leap Frog Alphabet Magnet thingy in Spanish. It has the letters of the alphabet and when you put them on the base it says the letter and sings a song about it. Well, this particular unit says the wrong letters, for example, when you put "L" in it says "S". I tried changing the battery, nada. It looks like I will be drafting an email to Leap Frog :).

The rest of the weekend was uneventful. Monday Corey and I made another trip to Edgewater to have a play date with Julie and Cullum. It is so fun watching kids this age interact with each other. At one point they gave each other such a big hug, they fell down. I have noticed lately that as soon as Corey sees another child, he immediately gives them a hug.

We brought in the New Year watching "Eagle Eye" (AWESOME movie) with Will and Diana as Corey slept soundly in his room. New Year's Day Corey and I took a trip to Port Orange to have yet another play date with Brady. Corey, again was as loving as ever. He hugged Brady so hard that he ended up with a bump on his head!!!

Friday morning was spent with my dad and my adoreably eccentric son!! He walked around with a diaper and one shoe.

Then he tried to sit on the dog, who didn't seem to mind.

He made it up to Toby by reading him a book!!!

Then he played hide the toy from myself and try to find it.

It is amazing to me that every break I have that is longer than a weekend (although those are hard too) it gets harder and harder to go back to work. He is getting so much easier to take care of, and so much fun with all the new things he is learning. In the past two weeks he has started to say "please" and sign more and all done. He is trying to jump, but only gets as far as his toes. I look forward to seeing everything he does in teh coming months!!!
