Wow, it’s been a busy 2 weeks! I had my first Christmas!
It started with my first plane ride the weekend before Christmas to go see Mimi, Papa, Uncle Ben, Aunt Sheri, Unckie Jake, Aunt Amy, my cousins Cole, Zach, and Luke, and many more!
Here’s some pictures of my first plane ride.
I don’t know what all the fuss is about-I slept through the entire thing!
After we landed in Burbank, Mimi took us over to my Uncle Ben and Aunt Sheri’s house. I had never met them before but had heard ALL about them. First my cousin Zach held me:
Then I took a picture with all 3 cousins, Zach, Luke, and Cole. I think Luke thinks I smell! I don’t, I promise!
I opened a gift from Zach. He bought it for me right after I was born. He was very excited to meet me:
My Uncle Ben came home early from work to meet me.
Later that night I got to see Papa. He makes me smile.
The next day, we went and met my Mommy’s friend and I met my future boyfriend. Mommy and Aunt Lisa have known each other since they were 12!!!
Here’s my future boyfriend Ben showing me how to walk. He turns 1 today! Happy Birthday Ben!!!
Later that night Mimi and Papa had a party at their house. Everyone and their dog was there!!
I met Aunt Marci:
And Uncle Dick:
My Unckie Jake’s outfit was a homage to Clark Griswald-yes those are embroidered skiing men on his green cords:
Mimi held me. Did you notice the pretty dress she got me for Christmas? It has snowmen smocked onto it:
My Aunt Sheri held me and rocked me to sleep (that lady is good at getting me to sleep!):
Check out some of my loot! (Yes I slept through opening my presents-it was an hour past my bedtime!)
The next day, I got to see Unckie Jake’s new house. It’s really COOL. I decided to ham it up at his house:
We flew home and again I slept through the entire flight. Air travel is so relaxing ;0)
When we got home I tried out my new travel play gym. I liked it! It’s already gone places with me and will be perfect for my upcoming trip to Pennsylvania-Thanks Uncle Ben, Aunt Sheri, Cole, Zack, and Luke!:
On Christmas Eve, Mommy and Daddy dressed me in the Christmas Pajamas that Mimi gave me and we had a quiet night in. Daddy was really pretty sick and Mommy and I didn’t feel all that great either. Before I went to bed, Mommy read “Where the Wild Things Are” to Daddy and me. Daddy had never read it! Unckie Jake and Aunt Amy gave me the book and stuffed animal for Christmas:
We also hung my stocking (Mommy made it) and left cookies, almond milk, and celery for Santa and his reindeers. In case you didn’t know Santa is allergic to milk.
When I got up in the morning, we checked and Santa sure did like his goodies-so did his reindeer!
Did you know that Santa leaves you presents? Check it out!
He got me some nice PJs and a footmuff for my carseat to keep my tootsies warm and he left all sorts of fun things in my stocking. He somehow knows what all my favorite toys are!:
Mommy and Daddy got me a monkey that can go in my crib with me and they opened a 529-college here I come! Well in 2026…
On Christmas Day, I started bringing my legs perpendicular to my body and can grab things hanging above me with my toes! I can also consistently grab things above my head with no problem. I’ve also become a chatter box. And? I’ve figured out that if I’m bored or lonely, all I have to do is cry and Mommy and Daddy come running. They may have ME figured out though…
Christmas is fun! I hope yours was as nice as ours.
Oh yeah, Mommy chopped all her hair off the next day. I think she looks pretty.
