I had my final first Christmas this afternoon in Danville with Grandma Barb’s family. We all had great fun. My grandparents, great grandparents, aunts and uncles, and great aunts and great uncles gave me many wonderful gifts.
Thanks so much to everyone for making my first Christmas a memorable one (well, for my parents at least).

We spent the few days around Christmas in Peoria with Grandma Nan and Grandpa Rick. They proved once again that I am indeed spoiled.
I have a bunch of new clothes and some kick-ass monkey boots.
Most importantly, with four big people in the house someone was always available to hold me and/or carry me around. You there…
After the gifts I saw my first snowstorm.
Then I got to see Mom’s friend Amy.
…and her husband Ben too (but it’s hard to get excited about that 🙂
Last but not least, I played around with my new (to me) toy.
I assume this Christmas thing (whatever it is) is going to happen once a week or so from now on, right?

Well, it’s official: I’m spoiled.
Last night was my first Christmas celebration with the Schofield family at Nana & Grampy’s house. They usually take turns opening gifts one at a time from youngest to oldest, then repeat until gifts are exhausted. My wonderful family gave me so many gifts that I had to open two each round… and I still lasted more rounds than anyone else.

Since Great Uncle Brad was the first person to run out of gifts I let him open mine. I wasn’t the only one excited about them.
Now I just need to find a place to put all my new toys and clothes.

At first I didn’t really like laying on my tummy.
But we started to practice.
Before you knew it I was able to hold my head up. Then it was sort of fun (for a while).
I even showed Mom & Pop how to to hold their heads up.

These past few days have been non-stop excitement. I’ve hardly been able to sleep at night (or during the day) because of it.
Yesterday, Dr. Mom successfully defended her dissertation (whatever that is).
I was stoked.
This morning I went to the mall to meet Santa (whoever that is).
Then a few hours later Daddy and I cut down our Christmas tree (whatever that is).
The video doesn’t show it, but it was mostly me cutting down the tree. Daddy only helped a little bit.

Well, our third Thanksgiving celebration of the week is over and I’m exhausted. We gathered with the Schofields at Grandma Barb & Grandpa Bruce’s house. As per usual, I stole the show. The most exciting part was getting to meet Nana, Grampy, and Uncle Brad. I also really enjoyed seeing Uncle Andy and Aunt Kim again.

We bundled up yesterday and made my first trip to Grandma Nan and Grandpa Rick’s house in Peoria. We ate Thanksgiving dinner today and I got to meet my great grandma Emma. A good time was had by all.

One more Thanksgiving to go.
