The holidays have proven to be great fun with a baby around to enjoy everything with.
Our sweet boy has been doing great! He has a super early bedtime (about 6:30 p.m.) but that is OK with us! It is a little hard sometimes because our family may not get to see him if they come visit in the evenings, but they do get to see him on the weekends so that is good. He is sleeping 11 to 12-hour nights which momma is loving. Now once he gets older if he could just go to bed a tad later and sleep a tad later, we'd be in good shape!
We had a great Thanksgiving. Tons of food, as always, and tons of fun.
The Littlest Farmer sat in Aunt Julia's lap to watch the parade. We didn't watch a lot of it - I think we woke up too late to see most of the fun floats and balloons. We enjoyed board games in the evening after our sweet boy went to sleep.
<--- As you can see, the Littlest Farmer is growing like a weed!! It is hard to find clothes that fit right at this stage. It is REALLY hard to find 6-9 month stuff in stores!
First off, we did a lot of decorating. I still need to take pictures of our house, but I haven't gotten around to it yet! We have been listening to tons of Christmas music, putting up lights, shopping, making cookies and candy, you name it and we've done it. I still have a tiny bit of Christmas shopping to finish up, but I am done for the most part. It is sooo nice to get to enjoy the holidays this year! Last year I was so sick due to being pregnant that I was pretty much just a party pooper.
We took an evening last week to make Christmas cookies and candy. We made Aunt Bill's candy, chocolate covered pretzels, sugar cookies, and glitter cookies. Here are a few pics of our Christmas cookie and candy making day:
For my next update I plan to share our Christmas family photos and the Littlest Farmer's FIRST Christmas!! Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!
