Merry Christmas (aka Sickmas)

On Christmas Eve Benjamin started to develop a fever and a runny nose. We figured after talking with a few people that he must be teething. We don't really feel anything in his mouth though. Jared says it feels rougher than normal on the bottom but I can't make anything out. Benjamin's drooling as also gone through the roof. So again I'm pretty sure he is teething. Anyways he wasn't too fussy so we figured he must be feeling okay. Christmas Eve night that proved to be wrong. He woke up a ton! We were awake from about 1:30am to 3:30am. We watched some TV before finally going back to sleep.

Christmas morning came and we took it pretty casually. Jared took Benjamin downstairs to play while I got a little more sleep. Then we gave Benjamin a bath to try and make him happier. Which always works until you take him out of the bath. Eventually we all got dressed in our new PJ's I made and opened presents. We really enjoyed watching Benjamin play with the wrapping paper and his new toys.

We hung out had breakfast and introduced apples to Benjamin. He liked them. Benjamin proved to be a cranky boy until we got to Jared's parents house. There he had plenty of things to look at and play with.

We eventually headed home which was a not a moment too soon. I was starting to feel really sick and barely made it home in time. Benjamin wasn't feeling too great either. Both of us wanted our mommies. It was an incredibly long night. I remember asking Jared what time was it and he answered you don't want to know. We finally got some sleep after 4am and we've been napping all day long. And it looks like Jared is up next for being sick.
We really did have a wonderful Christmas. Benjamin is such a joy to have in our home.
P.S. This has taken me well over 12 hours to write. And Jared is now definetly sick.
