Is January Over YET?

GREETINGS! It has been a very rainy day here and as you can see from the photo above, we decided to end our boring indoor day with a little bit of chocolate fondue. It was just as messy as you can imagine, but Colin was in heaven. I got the brilliant idea from Jer's mom, who melted chocolate chips with a smidge of oil when we visited last weekend. When you melt them together, you get perfect fondue. We had a blast tonight dipping all sorts of fruits and pretzels in the melted chocolate goodness...what a fun evening!
Colin has continued his new schedule and not napped during the day in probably three weeks now. He goes to sleep between 7 and 7:30 and sleeps until 7:15am. With this new schedule, I am much stricter on bedtime...lights are OUT at 7:30. Colin is so exhausted that it is no problem...he is out like a light. Things have been going smoothly and I do love the free evenings with Jer. Colin has never even come close to sleeping for 12 hours straight before and I just love it. I will say that I am tired in my bones by the time 7pm rolls around, though. I don't have a single truly free moment during the day, so that is pretty taxing. However, the big nap time struggle that used to take up the entire middle of my day is now over and I like not having it hanging over my head. We can do whatever we want at whatever long as we are home for our early evenings. I am hoping that when summer rolls around, the longer daylight hours will push his schedule later...maybe sleeping from 8:30 - 8:30 or something amazing like that. I don't know for sure if that will happen, but I hope so. It will seem very strange to call it a night at 7pm during the summer months! We shall see!
I should also note that I finally got my HORRIBLE New Year's Eve haircut fixed amazing hairdresser Leslie is back in business after shoulder surgery and she fixed me up. She did have to take a lot of length off to salvage something, but it looks a THOUSAND times better and I feel like a new woman. Now I am off to grow it out...AGAIN.
