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.

This morning Momma ran her first race since I was born.
She even waved and blew kisses to me as she ran by!
After the race my grandparents and great grandparents came by to join us for lunch.
When lunch was over Daddy and I walked to campus to watch my second cousin Tom play in a racquetball tournament (along with the rest of the family).
When we returned home I was so beat I just wanted to lay down and take a nap.
I was such a good boy all day Mom and Dad just couldn’t believe it. Well, I’m off to bed early. Hopefully I’ll get a good night’s rest so I can be really good tomorrow as well.

I’ve been working really hard at finding thumbkin. The problem is, my dang arms keep flailing around, so if I find thumbkin, it almost always gets away again.
Here’s a video Mama took of me last week:
And then last night when Mama was putting me in my jammies, I got thumbkin real good for just a minute.
It was a big day for me yesterday. I went to campus with Mama to listen to a talk. Unfortunately, I cried and Mama didn’t know what else to do to keep me quiet, so she fed me, and then I burped real loud. Everybody looked at me.
