First... Christmas

Pin It

I must say, this was my favorite Christmas ever... Even though we drove with a tired, screaming baby from Redding, and I didn't even have all of Steiger's gifts wrapped (bad mommy), there is just something utterly delightful about having an 8 month old and his wonderful daddy to share the season with. I mean really, does it get much better than these 2?

(Steiger was quite excited about his book from Grandma Shirley.)

We were back home this morning (we actually came home last night).
We had to have a family picture; the timer feature always seems to turn out pretty good, no? I believe Steiger's expression is entirely appropriate here.

We spent this afternoon at my mom's.

Seeing Steiger with Cousin Cooper almost makes me want another one soon; Steiger LOVES kiddos.

As always, Grandma Cathy's house was gorgeous, and the food was tremendous. I love being at her house at Christmastime.

Cooper has decided that Grandpa is his big buddy now. And Steiger was a sweetheart despite skipping his afternoon nap.

Steiger did not fight sleep at all tonight. All I could think, as I held him there is what a joy he is to know. Each year, on Christmas Eve, the Christmas story is read from Luke 2. My favorite verse, is towards the end of the chapter... Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

I think I could relate to her a little bit this Christmas. Peace on earth, good will toward men... indeed.

It is so much fun having a baby around for Christmas (and every other day of course), and even more fun when it's your own! Cute pictures. I need to catch up on your blog, it got deleted from my list when I changed a few things. I added you to my list again and I'm not touching my settings again! =)
