Christmas Morning

Christmas Eve.

Harlow requested two things for Christmas: a dollhouse and a blue "sucka." Don't ask me why she wanted a blue one???? lol

It was so nice spending our 1st Christmas in Lynchburg and starting our own traditions. We had a Christmas Eve brunch with some friends, went to church, had a nice dinner, sprinkled reindeer food on the front yard, read 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, and then played Santa. We woke up so excited and couldn't wait for the kids to get up. We spent Christmas day hanging out at the house and enjoyed every minute. It's always such a downer when it's over, but knowing we were going home the next day really kept the excitement up.

Christmas Pictures


Oliver: 8 months

Size: Technically size 4 diapers but the last time I stocked up I bought 4 and 5s. We ran out of 4s and only had 5s, so that's what he's wearing. Wearing 12 and 18 months.

Looks: Still getting mixes of Joe and my brother.

Eyes: Blue. 

Hair: So much blonde and it sticks straight up!

Sleeping: Taking 2 naps a day (morning and afternoon). Goes to bed between 7 and 7:15. We put him in a sleep-sack at night and he always sleeps with his pacifier and hedgehog lovey.

Eating: Drinking between 5 and 6 oz. per bottle every 4 hours. Eats lunch and dinner (sometimes breakfast). Still loves puffs and squash. 

-Not crawling but he still gets where he wants to go. He bobs up and down and kinda scoots.
-Starting to get on all fours and rocking back and forth.
-Fake coughs.
-Will sniff when you ask him if he's stinky.
-Still has 2 teeth.

Memorable Outings: traveled to Tangier. Picked out his 1st Christmas tree.

Loves: Still the same things....his sister, his bottle, jumperoo, the bath, nap time/bedtime, food, music (Jesus Loves Me is his jam), his plush book, his hedgehog lovey, and peekaboo.

Hates: being hungry, when I take him out the bath and get him dressed, cleaning his nose, and putting a bib on him. 

Words/Sounds: mama and dada. He's also started making the "P" and "B" sound, so he'll say popopopop and bubububububa. 

Nicknames: Oli, Oli boy, bubs/bubba.
