New Stages.

Cullen has now moved from the high chair to a booster chair at the dinner table. He feels like quite the big boy! After he began trying to climb out of his high chair during meal time, we decided it was time for him to join us.

Cullen got his stitches out last week. It was quick and painless - literally. He didn't even flinch when the nurse took out the two stitches.

I think we may be entering our "terrible twos". Cullen is not fond of hearing the word "No", yet it seems to be his favorite word to say. Hopefully, this is a short-lived phase. Even though we are frustrated at times, we still think he's adorable.

Stitches 2010.

I have titled this entry stitches 2010 after coming to the realization that we are raising a little boy and will probably endure a few trips to the ER for stitches in the future. Hopefully, none too serious! Cullen fell and hit his head on the coffee table and split his forehead open. Thankfully Grandma Liz and Grandpa Mark were here to help the frazzled parents. Within 5 minutes, the bleeding and crying had stopped, Cullen said goodbye and kissed Grandma "Wiz", "Bapa", and "Mase", and we were out the door. He was such a little trooper. The worst part came when mom and dad had to help hold him still while the good doctor put in 2 stitches. He was numb from the Novocain, but the stitching up process was still pretty traumatic for the little guy. Afterward, Cullen took a 2 hour nap and woke up ready to play. Needless to say, we all survived our first trip to the ER.

Happy New Year!

The Christmas Spirit.

Now that Cullen has entered our lives, the true spirit of Christmas is present. And speaking of presents, Cullen raked them in. Here's a photo collage of Christmas celebrated over 3 days. You'll notice that Cullen loves spending time with family, but is not so happy about Santa. Maybe next year.

It was a great holiday. Plans had to be rearranged due to the weather, but we managed to get in all of the major family celebrations. And our best present was returning to our newly remodeled home. While Christmas decorations were lacking, it didn't matter. Because really, there's no place like home!
