Hey everyone! It's been a long time since I last posted and quite a lot has happened. We blessed our sweet little Taj on the first Sunday of this month and were quite successful because he slept through the whole thing. Thank goodness because he has lungs like a banshee and that ampified into a mic would surely be blood curdling:( My husband's stepmom found a really cute hand-made blessing outfit at The Quilted Bear, which by the way is an awesome store! It's like a Roberts, a gift shop, and a restaurant all in one. It also has a cool little life-size village and you can walk into all the little shops. Even Brannon liked it...I was ready to go before he was. Little Taj is doing great. He had his shots last week and did great until Sunday and then he ran a fever, so we had to spend the day in the hospital doing bloodwork and waiting in the doctor's office. It was awful! They had to put a catheter in him to get a urine sample and I though I was going to kill somebody because they made him bleed and I've never heard him cry like that before. He was so traumatized by it that he slept for the rest of the day and through the night, with the exceptions of waking up to eat. I hope we never do that again. I hated it!
I have to admit that I've been a little bit bad since Taj was born. Taj has slept in the bed with me for about two months now because I've been too nervous to leave him in his crib at night, so poor Bran has been sleeping in the guest bedroom. I'm home for Monticello for Christmas and my mom has a Pack'n Play and I put him in that to sleep the last two nights and I have not had better sleep for a long while. He actually slept until 6 am both nights! My hope is renewed and my faith is restored! Yes, I can go on living and have a normal life. I was worried the cirlces under my eyes were going to be permanent:( Needless to say, I'm taking the Pack'n Play home with me because that is his new bed and now Bran can reclaim his spot:) I will be posting Kiddie Kandid pics soon along with Taj's first visit with Santa.

chelle, he's so big! I wish we could see you guy while we are down in Blanding but we will just be missing each other. Cole and I are very sorry about not coming up last weekend. We thought the weather was going to be bad and didn't want to chance it. But we had talked about coming up in January some time. I'm so glad he's sleeping! That's awesome! Tell your family hi while you're there. Love ya

Oh no, why did he have to get blood work done, did everything turn out ok. That is the worst, Having a sick kid just tears your heart out, poor things.
You are very lucky that he slept in a pack n play so easily and so well after getting used to being in your bed with you. I had an opposite experience.
He is getting big, and sure is cute. Hope you guys have a great Holiday. Merry Christmas!
