We were so excited to celebrate Christmas for the first time with David!
The night before Christmas Eve was a rough one though. The poor dude only slept 2 hours because he kept waking himself up. We were both exhausted. Luckily on Christmas Eve I thought to bust out the swaddle again (he hated being swaddled for a long time so we gave up). It worked! He was well rested for all the festivities!
Yes, his hands really ARE that big. You should see the feet on this kid too!
That night David gave us the gift of sleep! Sleeping his first 5 hour stretch! Ahh sweet, sweet sleep... He must have known he has to sleep for Santa to come! I celebrated by falling down the stairs in the morning. Luckily I wasn't carrying the baby, but it was quite the spill. My back still hurts! Christmas morning we packed up for the day and headed over to my parents house for breakfast and gifts. He took a good nap and let us eat breakfast and then hung out under the tree while we opened gifts for a little, but soon got fussy and Grandpa had to take over! Something tells me he didn't mind though!
Next up we head to my friend Kristy's for New Years Eve. We won't be staying long, but it will be nice to get out and do something. We haven't celebrated NYE in years!
