January 1st, 2011 ~ On New Year's Day we had a special visit from my good friend, Terra, and her family! They live in Wisconsin and came to Eugene for the holidays to spend time with her family. I wasn't sure if we would get to see them, but we managed to sneak in a quick visit. I was so excited to get to talk with Terra and see our kids playing together so nicely. I wish we lived closer!

Terra and I have been friends since middle school when my family moved to Eugene!
The Root & Ruddick kids (:

While the kids were still on winter break I made plans to meet up with Kelly and her boys at the Science Factory.
Griffin telling Eli secrets (:
I included this so that I would remember how much Tate loves sleeping in his swing, especially at night (which I let him do so that I could get sleep!). (: After the holidays I started working on our nighttime routine, and started putting Tate in the cradle in his room. Right away he started sleeping great and has already had a few 8-9 hour stretches of sleep! It's not consistent yet, but I feel much more rested than I did at the beginning!
