Baby's First Christmas

Some people are really on the ball about things and actually send out Christmas cards.  We are not those people.  However, if we were those people, we would have a tie for the picture on the card.
James was busy Christmas Eve through the day after Christmas.  He undoubtedly had the most fun Christmas morning, when these pictures were taken.  He loved meeting all of his great aunts and uncles, second cousins, second cousins once removed, and our friends.  He was especially excited to meet Lucy, who we've told him all about. It was incredible to see the difference between a two month old and a nine month old!  They have one thing in common though: they are both adorable!  We were  so happy to share James with everyone over the holidays and hope to keep in touch throughout the year!

I've got to say, James made quite the haul this Christmas.  Most of his swag came from his grandparents which is good since Santa only brought him books!  We've already put some of James' loot to use.  Here he is enjoying a walk at the park in his Bjorn.  
Why did we wait so long to get one of these?
He's also had a blast reading all of his new books! Auntie Caitlin gave him a book called A Sick Day for Amos McGee.   It's adorable.  James' BFF Evangeline gave him Little Polar Bear.  Thankfully it's fiction; we're not ready for the story of the present day polar bear. Santa brought him my old favorite- Go Dog, Go! which is not as amazing as I remember it.  My favorite page was where the dogs party it up in the tree.  Now, it's not as cool.  How aging 20 years changes one's perspective!

Well, we hope you had a Merry Christmas and are ready for the new year!  Here's to 2012 being full of teeth, talking, and walking!
