Nana and Aunt Anna

After we dropped Grandma and Grandpa off at the airport, we went to Nana and Papa's for a little while. I got to play with my Aunt Anna for a bit, too.

When we got home, I'm not sure who was missing Grandma and Grandpa more, me or Lily! (That's Lily with her head in the doorway of the guest room, where Grandma and Grandpa had stayed for the two weeks they were with us.)

Grandma's Birthday

So, Daddy didn't have to work on Grandma's birthday, which was really nice because he had been working a lot recently and I missed him. We got to play for a while and I had a lot of fun!

We all went out to Red Lobster (thanks Uncle Nick and Aunt Becky) to celebrate Grandma's birthday. Grandma and Grandpa kept fighting over who got to hold me (because I'm so cute and adorable)!

I got to sit on the bed (look how well I'm doing at sitting) and play while Grandma packed. She told me she and Grandpa were leaving the next day, and I was sad. I really enjoyed getting lots of hugs and squeezes and lots of extra attention while they were here.

First Christmas!

So here I was on Christmas morning, surrounded by mountains of presents. I just started sitting up on my own a few days ago, just in time for good pictures in front of our pretty tree. It also made opening presents a lot more fun. I like bows and paper, except when a piece got stuck in my mouth.

I got to open lots of presents, so many that I had to stop and take a nap for a little while, and then eat again, before I could finish!

Later that afternoon, Nana, Papa, and Grammy came to see me, and they brought more presents! And then Uncle Boo and Aunt Lindsay, Aunt Anna, and future Uncle Bryson came to my house with even more presents!!

I had a really great time yesterday, and Mommy wants me to say thank you to everyone for all of the wonderful gifts. I am very lucky to be loved by so many people!

Family Photo

So last night Mommy and Daddy got all dressed up for a "date". (It was the church choir Christmas dinner, but a night out with out me they call a date, no matter where they are going.) So since they looked so nice, they decided to take a family picture! I think I look pretty cute, if I do say so myself, and Mommy and Daddy look pretty nice too.

Who needs Santa...

I've got Grandparents!!! And now Grandma and Grandpa are here!!! They have been so impressed at how much I've grown, and how I am trying to sit up (still working on that.) They have hardly noticed the fact that I'm still having a hard time sleeping through the night, unlike Mommy and Daddy. I sure am having fun playing with them, when they aren't fighting over whose turn it is to hold me! And they sure do think its pretty neat when I start smiling and laughing!

This is what happens...

...when you don't strap me in!

PJ kind of day

Its a PJ kind of day, so Mommy let me stay in my PJs for a while today. And she finally let me play with my zebra, instead of just sitting it next to me. I am 22 weeks old, and I am finally starting to get some hair!!! It won't be long before I am able to sit up....I can sit on my own for a second now, but every day I'm getting stronger! It won't be too much longer before I start crawling, and then Mommy will really have her hands full!!!

Today was a special day, because I had my very first Christmas pictures taken. I sure am cute!

Tub time is fun time...

...especially now that I can put my foot in my mouth, literally!
I figured out how to suck on my big toe a few days ago, while Mommy was changing my diaper. Now I do it whenever I have a chance (diaper changes and bath time) since I quickly figured out that it's not at much fun to suck when I have my socks on!
