Happy New Year

So, I have a confession. I am a horrible procrastinator. Not much of a confession to those that know me IRL, because I have been like this since the day I was born. Many times I want to post a timely post like the one above and comment on the actual day, whether it be a holiday or the anniversary of a significant day for Fletcher. But, that doesn't always happen, so I either just skip the post altogether (what typically happens) or I stay up way too late to get my post in by the midnight deadline (which is what I did for Fletcher's birthday video).

That is a thing of a past now, because I have figured out how to beat the system, so to speak. I am sure the general public using blogger realized this from the get-go, but I just figured out that you can manipulate the time and date of your post. So, for those that check this somewhat regularly, you know I didn't actually post this on New Years Day. But, a year from now when I go to print this out, I won't know any better and it will be a nice timely post as far as I am concerned. Sneaky, huh.

By the way, the photo itself was taken on New Year's Eve. Fletcher was actually awake at midnight (after a couple of hours nap earlier in the evening) but, as he illustrates in this picture, insisted on chewing on the wrong side of the noisemaker. That's okay, his five-year-old cousin made enough noise for the both of them. Who knew five-year-olds were so interested in welcoming the New Year. This girl was ready to party (unlike the adults who were in bed as soon as possible after the ball dropped).

Hi Erin

I found your blog while reading the comments from Mary Ellen's latest post over at Not According to Plan.

First, I want to say little Fletcher is just adorable! What a miracle he is! And all that you have been through, wow. I sort of relate, although we've had switched experiences - I had a PIH pregnancy and then (or more correctly, now) have infertility. I didn't develop full blow PE or HELLP but I did spent quite some time in the hospital on bedrest before my son was born at 36 weeks, so I relate in some ways to that experience you describe.

Just wanted to say hi and that your little guy is quite a cutie!

Look at cutie pie chewing on his noisemaker! So sweet!

W likes to chew on the wrong end, too. But he does hate the way it tickles his nose sometimes. :)
