Santa Baby

Lane is 3 months old now! Where has the time gone?? I did a photo shoot the other day with him in his Santa outfit. He looked so cute! He is now rolling from back to front - somewhat continuously - and is chatting up a storm. He is such a happy baby! He sleeps through the night 99.9% of the time and on the off chance that he does get up he's usually just dreamy and when I turn on his aquarium sound machine he drifts right back off!!

I returned back to work on December 2nd - it really wasn't as bad as some people say...the hardest part has been getting back into the routine of going to work 5 days a week and making sure that he has everything he needs for a day at the sitter's!

Here are some pictures that I've taken over the last several days!

Our Christmas Tree
we've always put it on the trunk to keep Jinx out of it and now to keep Lane out of it (next year)

Big Boy!
