Dec 10 – baby’s first time putting up ornaments 

I have some catching up to do on all the things we have been doing but I couldn’t wait on this.

We are finally getting around to decorating the tree. I pulled our boxes of ornaments out and the first ornaments that caught my eye overwhelmed me.

We lost so very much in 2014 that writing this and looking at these ornaments brings tears to my eyes even now.

But we gained so much in 2015.

So here are the first ornaments L and I hung together on his first tree.


Day 1 ( and 2) of 25 days of Christmas

Yesterday we watched our first Christmas movie (my ALL time favorite, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

L wasn’t hugely interested but we snuggled for a few minutes and then he mostly played in his saucer while I played with him and watched. Which is fine by me, I’m not sure if it would scare him or not.


Blurry but watching The Grinch!

Today wasn’t much of an activity – we did a little shopping, a little wrapping and a little bit of decorating. But all firsts for me and L!

Tomorrow will be much more exciting! 🙂

Happy Wednesday!
