We welcomed in the New Year at the Munson's house with a few other families. We all brought something to eat and had ourselves a feast. I brought Pina Colada Cake (yummy!) and Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos. The jalapenos were completely gone by the end of the night. We had some of the cake leftover but that was okay with me since it's so good! I just have to make sure I don't eat the rest of it by myself! We watched a Tim Hawkins DVD (a Christian comedian) and played a few different games. After midnight we cleaned up our mess and headed home.
Here's where the fun starts....JJ went to sleep about 12:45 but woke up at 2:15. I'd only been in bed for about 30 minutes by then. I let him fuss for a bit but once I realized he wasn't going back to sleep I went and got him. We rocked in the rocking chair for the next 2 and a half hours. It was so sad. He was so tired but wasn't able to sleep. Finally, he fell asleep and I laid him down at 4:45 this morning. Let me tell you, it was a long night. He got up this morning at about 8:45 so he still didn't get much sleep. I am really hoping he takes a good long nap today. He needs it. And I need it.
It may not have been the way I would have liked for things to happen last night but as I sat and rocked my little boy, I thanked God for being JJ's mommy and for having a healthy, happy child. 2009 was a good year. I got to watch JJ grow from a baby into a little boy and I look forward to watching him grow even more in the next year.
Happy 2010 everyone and may God bless you all!
