I speak blessings on this next year may you continue to grow big and strong, and grow to be a man of God. You have such a sweet spirit and we can't get enough of you. Happy Birthday!!!!

This boy is so stinkin sweet. He was playing with daddy so I was able to snap a few pics. I love all the slobber. The last picture is a bit blurry, but I wanted to capture his new little grin. It's not an open mouth smile just a little smile. I love it. Such a little man. I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF HIM.
We had a great Christmas. It was a very fun and very new experience doing Christmas with a baby. He didn't get into it much. He did enjoy eating the wrapping paper ; ) We all made out like bandits and once again were blessed by our families generosity. Roman got some of the cutest PJ's and outfits as well as a lot of toys. We had fun getting them all out today, but I think we overstimulated the little dude. John Mark pretty much got everything he wanted/needed. He got lots of new dress shirts for work . He's going to look very nice. He also managed a DVD player and a video game. I got the perfumes I've been wanting, some super cute shirts, and a food processor for making Roman's baby food. It was a lot of fun. The most fun really is getting together with family. We enjoy just hanging out and visiting. Both sides of our family are very large so getting everybody together is a bit of a challenge, but we sure enjoy it when we do. It would be wonderful to see my mom, Gord and sisters on Christmas. Now that would totally complete our Christmastime. (Mom I've been trying to call you---Where have you been?). Here are some pictures of our Christmas. We ended up opening our presents from each other and doing our Christmas Christmas Eve. Not exactly the tradition we want to have, but really didn't know when else to do it. So these pics are from our Christmas at our house, John Mark's parents house, and my Poppy and JuJu's house. Enjoy!!!

Well it's been awhile... and a lot has happened in the short while its been. John Mark and I celebrated our two year anniversary. Dad and Mom came up and watched Roman and John Mark and I went out on the town. It was weird (not having Roman). We only lasted till about 3, but it was fun.
Roman is growing so fast. I can't believe that he is 5 1/2 months. He rolls over and is the grabbiest little dude. He grabs everything...so be careful. He's teething, therefore has been a little crankier---for those who know Roman he's never cranky so by a little crankier its still pretty mild.
We can't believe it is already Christmastime, but of course we our super excited. John mark and I are still like little kids especially John Mark. It's been the most fun getting Roman his Christmas presents. Unfortunately he won't remember his first Christmas, but we will. Good memories.
We hope you all have a great Christmas. Remember most of all the true gift that we were all given--- Jesus Christ. Enjoy family...I know we will. Merry Christmas
Here are some pics from our Christmas today.

So for Christmas Roman was going to get an exersaucer, but he got it early (of course). He loves it. I get so much done now. John Mark calls it the stimulation machine there is so much stuff on this thing. As you can tell he loves it. Right now he's making this loud shrilling noise as he sits in it and watches baby einstein. There is this little duck on the tv and he seems to be very fascinated with it. Well Now he's crying...better go

I posted a video but it won't show up...thats where you see his horrible face. I can't now, but I will try again later
So let me update on the latest Roman news. We went to Dr. Payton (our pediatrician). Roman is still in the 95th percentile weighing in at 18 pounds and he's 27 inches long. He's really grown in length in the last little bit. He's absolutely wonderful--the light of our life. We've been waiting to start him on cereal- I don't really know why--just eager to start something new. So Dr. Payton said we could start him on rice cereal. I really thought he would like it a lot, but to my surprise he hated it. He made the worst face and spit it out over and over again. I do believe we can thank my dad for that. This Thanksgiving he ate mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberries, and whatever other juices were on my dads plate. Everytime my dad would take his finger out of his mouth Roman would break into a cry. So cute!!! Anyways, here are some picture from our cereal experience.
P.S We ended up putting it in a bottle ---He sucked it down. Rumor has it that this will help him sleep through the night---Hope so. The ones were he is asleep is after the bottle. Yippee

We had such a fun night. It's 1130 and the last few peeps left just shortly ago. I'm sitting here in bed trying to wind down, but had to get these pics up. Isn't Roman sweet? I know all mothers are biased and I understand you have the cutest baby, but in my mind I have never seen anything cuter than Roman. He truly makes my heart smile everytime I look at him. My dad asked " Did you ever know you could love something so much?" I really can't believe how in love I am with him. He is the best. The pictures of Roman and daddy are so sweet. They are so handsome. These pictures......oh I just love them !!!! Enjoy
