Christmas has come and gone and my head is still spinning a little. I cut way back this year – ordered nearly every gift online, didn’t bake any sweet treats, used a lot more gift bags than wrapping paper. We focused on driving during nap times, getting home for bed and making people take a flu test before coming within 10 feet of Grant [exaggerating, but only slightly].
We got a new camera for Christmas! So fun.
Andy ordered a little Santa outfit for Grant on a super sale. He wore it to church on Christmas Eve and got a lot of smiles and “awwwws.” Yeah, I know, Santa at church. But dressing him as baby Jesus seems a little odd…
I think he was ready for his nap…
As expected, Grant was spoiled rotten this Christmas by everyone on all sides of the family. We kept him up a little late on Christmas Eve to open some stocking presents. After that Mom and Dad opened his presents 🙂
Grant received a new bouncer activity thing for Christmas. At first he seemed pretty unsure about it. But after we helped him learn to bounce in it he was having a blast!
Jumping requires concentration.
Next year Grant will be a lot more aware of everything happening at Christmas. This year was all about the outfits. That’s a sweater with a bowtie onesie underneath. C’mon people.
The kid got passed around a LOT. Being the only baby in the family has its perks. Grant has three great-grandparents. Isn’t that incredible?
My sister has named herself “Aunt Awesome.”
Grant loves my brother’s beard. He thinks it’s hilarious. So my brother jokingly called himself “Uncle Beardface.” And now we will call him that forever, even if he is clean-shaven.
The holidays were so fun, but tuckered us all out. We are headed on vacation for New Years. Traveling with a four-month old should be relaxing, right?
