Shopping for a Christmas tree when you are two months old is hard work. So hard that Myles slept through the entire ordeal. It was a great night to tree shop however, it was the night of the Monrovia Christmas parade and everyone was at the parade! This year we got a tree right off the lot. It took all of two stops, and about 20 min. Much better than last year. We usually have to unwrap the trees to see what they look like and push our way through hoards of people. This year we took the easy way out( for an extra 10$.)

The Doctor said it's a herniated belly button. Don't worry about it for 6-8 months when it should have healed itself. If not they will surgically fix it.
Myles and I saw the Pediatrician today. It's official I have a giant of a baby. He weighs 14lbs. 3 oz. I now have to cut out the night feeding and I am sure that isn't going to be fun for about a week. The Doctor said it would take about a week for him to get the message that he really didn't need to eat at night. We will see how it goes. Wish us luck.

Well we're in week four already and I can't believe it. Yuki is growing like a weed but doing well. Here's a few of the latest, as promised. I think she's changing so much and starting to get her own look you know. She has plenty of people to keep her company and hold her. So that's a huge help for me. Dru's really good with her and Haydn is getting pretty good. Good practice for him I guess aye. He's got another date this weekend with the same girl.
Here are some other pic's of Masaru putting up Grandma's Christmas Tree for the season. He started off well and then died out. So we put a movie on and these next pic's are what he decided to do with his time. This is a nutella type spread. So he decided it was time to have a little snack while watching his Japanese films. What a mess. I hope that gets out of his T-Shirt!!!
We had a Christmas work 'do' for Dru's job. We turned up and everyone was drinking and smoking lol I need to get back into the grove of normal life outside of Utah. Everyone was really nice and loved the kids. Masaru had a great time drawing on the concrete with chalk all night and eating when he felt like it.
Man NZ really knows how to put on a BBQ that's for sure. No shortage of good meat. It was nice to meet all of Dru's work mates. They all seem to love Dru.
Masaru stayed the night at Llewellyn's last night. So I'll see how that went some time this morning when he drops him off. He has kindy today so he'll love that.
He's doing really well in Nursury. Yesterday at church he packed a sad because he wanted to go to nursury and not sacrament. He really loves this lady in there called Auntie Mata. I think that's why he loves Nursury, because of her. He's getting better and better at leaving us. I think it's a relief.
Season of Christmas. Last night we were coming home and we saw a house done up for Christmas. It was like the houses back in Utah. I'll get a pic for next week. I'll miss the smells and how much people get into it in Utah but I'll be alright. We're thinking of going to the lake and kiaking and playing cricket and having a picnic Christmas afternoon. Now that's something you couldn't do with the snow! LOL
Have a great week.
