Well, the holidays have been super busy! It started with all of my family coming in from many states, California, New Mexico, and Illinois! We all stayed at the Embassey Suites across from the Galleria starting on the 23rd. We just hung out, ate lots of yummy food, including all the candy that mom and I made, and of course the cousins went shopping. :) One of the best moments was going to Christmas Eve dinner where Santa made his appearance! All of my cousins are having babies too, so there were 8 kids under the age of nine! Needless to say, they were SUPER excited when Santa payed them a visit at dinner! Santa brought them all a gift. Andrew must have been a really good boy because he got a light up/talking cow. :) After my family left, we continued with Aaron's family with opening presents with my niece who loves to open presents! She was really funny because Jeremy (Aaron's brother) told her she couldnt open presents until she was done eating, which included a few more bites of this and a few more bites of that... She was suppose to eat a piece of ham, but didnt want it, so I put a piece of Mac and Cheese on the end trying to trick her. No such luck! She carefully pulled the noodle off the end of the fork, leaving the ham behind! What a smart and funny girl. :) I can not believe she is 2 1/2!
The festivities just keep going, some of our closest friends came to visit us, the Crosbys! It was wonderful getting to hang out with them and catch up like old times. :)
Andrew just keeps growing and is now smiling and cooing! Every time we change his diaper he finds this brown and tan dog sitting on the window seal. He really loves this dog because he smiles and talks to it which is soooo adorable. I always have the camera ready because I know he is going to smile. Here is a pic of him doing just that! :)
Andrew had many Christmas outfits, so here are a few pics. He is fitting into 0-3 month clothes, which is so much fun! Aaron and I just cant get enough of our sweet boy!
