Instead of days consumed with learning to care for a newborn at a somewhat slow and relaxed pace, we spent this Christmas season rushing around juggling naptimes, feeding schedules, family, church, un-wrapping presents or rather begging Mac to unwrap at least one present, and chasing our little man around making sure he doesn't eat all the shiny paper/ribbon/bows.
It was festive and fast and we loved every minute of it, so let's get to it!
|Opening his stocking (is that how you would say it?) and looking completely confused. |
Little did he know this was the first of many, many gifts.
|Cousin Hayden with her homemade Hello Kitty hat and homemade appliquéd shirt. |
This is how we do it, y'all.
|"Oh you shiny ribbon, why do you taste so good?" |
No really, shiny ribbon why, his mother wants to know.
|Oh shiny Christmas tree. |
We are thankful twinkling lights did not appeal to Mac's palate this year.
|Mac taking a second to look into the opened present before |
resuming banging his sippy cup on the present marked "fragile."
|Cousin Isaac giving Mac "present-opening lessons."|
Mac playing with the nativity set.
Did you know that the shepherds came to see baby Jesus riding on their red tractors?
|Oh those dimples!|
|Happy New Year!|
