Don’t worry, I’m still alive…

And so is Nick!

Which is fantastic, since the very purpose of my existence these past couple of months has been to keep him that way.

Let me ask you something: are you aware that it’s already December? Because it’s taken me well over a week of being barraged by Christmas lights, trees and holiday-themed advertising to realize that it’s not October anymore. Somehow, that month has come and gone. And I’m pretty sure that for the very first time in history, November never happened at all.

So what have I been up to these past couple months? There’s been a lot of couch-sitting, daytime TV watching and not showering. And I’m exhausted. I guess I forgot to mention the feeding, pumping, soothing, playing and diaper changing.

On any given day, if you ask me what I’ve done during the past 12 hours, my response will most likely be “I have NO idea.” But you know what I actually did do? I survived. I may not know if it’s Monday or Saturday or what the weather is like outside, but I can tell you how many times Nick pooped and who the guests were on Ellen. So that’s something.

All in all, these past couple months have been pretty great. We’ve been blessed with a well-behaved kid who is exceptionally adorable and likes to sleep somewhat regularly.

Addendum: I started writing this post at the beginning of December. Two weeks later… it’s still not finished. This is pretty much how everything in my life is working right now. So while Nick is passed out in his swing, I’m going to hurry up and post this before he wakes up and another two weeks go by!

Oh, and here are some pics of Mr. Nickster because CUTENESS.
