So excited to see what Santa brought me
You talkin to me?
Yeah, I want to open my own presents!
So Duncan's first Christmas went really well. We decided that we would get up whenever Duncan got up. So at 6am we were up taking pictures and opening presents. Duncan was so cute. We tried to get him to open his own presents and he tired, but he couldn't quite get a grasp on the paper. But he did seem to like a few of things. He loves toys that light up. He has a baby Einstein toy that plays music and lights up and he loves it. We got him toys for when he is a little older so mos of the stuff he can use in a couple of months. He is doing so good. He wants to sit up all the time. He tries to keep his head up and he does really well for a few minutes and then it drops down a little. He loves to grab things and make noises with his mouth and he now grabs his feet when he is being changed. He is healthy and we are trying like crazy to keep it that way. We are not letting anyone around him if they haven't had an H1N1 shot and no little kids. It is hard for my nieces and nephews to understand why they can't see him, but one day when they are older I hope it makes sense to them. We just can't take any chances.
Justin and I got each other a couple of things. It was a modest Christmas as we are still paying for Duncan. I told Justin it will be nice when he is paid off. He's more expensive than a new car!! But totally worth it.
We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and we hope you have a happy and safe New Year.

My sister got Duncan the cutest onsie for Christmas. I have been wanting to take pictures for Christmas with him in it. So on Sunday I gave him a bath and got him all dressed, onsie, cute khaki pants and shoes. And what does he do? He falls asleep!! He slept until 7:30 so then it was too late to take the pictures. The only one I got was of his arm because the onsie has these cute elbow patches on them. So there is his Christmas arm. Hopefully I can add the rest of his body.

Oh it has been so long since I blogged. Not too much has changed. We had a very quiet Thanksgiving. We spent most of the day at home and then went to my parents for dinner after little kids left. It was sad, I really wish they could be around him, but not yet. Duncan is doing really well. I am a total worry wort when it comes to his health. He started to have this sort of cough and a stuffy nose, so we took him to urgent care Thanksgiving weekend. Nothing was wrong. Well his nose has still been stuffy so I took him to the Dr. today and he is okay. He does have a stuffy nose, but nothing serious. I would rather be safe than sorry. I really like our Dr. that we take him to, he is very understanding and very through with him. I like that he came from Phoenix Children's too. He asked me "Now his first name is Duncan right? Because they put a comma and I told them no, Isaac is the last name." This keeps happening at Dr. offices. I told Justin our son has a last name that can be a first name and a first name that could be a last name. Poor kid.
Duncan is 15lbs and boy does he feel like it. He is holding his head up really well and is starting to roll over when put on his belly. He loves Nick Jr. in the morning. I love waking up in the morning with him in my arms and seeing him first thing. The best is when he wakes up and looks at me and just smiles a big smile. So sweet.
We got our Christmas tree up Thanksgiving weekend! I was so happy because I didn't know if it would get up then. Now I just need to get my decorations up. We are planning on having a quiet Christmas as well. Once the flu and RSV season is over we can start taking Duncan out. It probably won't be until May. But I am determined to not end up back in the hospital.
