Hi, crazy boy! It was January 17th when I started this letter and now it's January 21st which means we are LESS THAN two months away from your first birthday. I know - that has to be a joke, right?! You've officially lived out in the world longer than you lived in me.

I totally dropped the ball on getting this published around Halloween so here we go... my favorite things from catalogs and online shopping over the last two months. I'll have a holiday gift round up for you by the end of the weekend, too. (Matt - how easy does this make your shopping this year?! Wink, wink.)
Apparently it's been three weeks since my last post (not counting the baby letter). Oops. We've been quite busy around here and I have about six posts in limbo, so as I warned, there should be a flurry of posts coming your way soon. This is the first.
