Merry Christmas!!

I enjoyed celebrating my first Christmas this year. It's kind of funny that we're celebrating Jesus' birthday, but I get lots of presents. I can't decide what I liked most, the presents or the wrapping paper & boxes. I got to celebrate with both sets of Grandparents & was able to meet my Aunt Kristen from California for the first time. Uncle Todd, Aunt MB and Uncle Carlos helped me to celebrate too! Unfortunately I have not been feeling so great over the holiday. I had a top tooth come in, which was quite uncomfortable. I've also been struggling with a urinary tract infection which the doctor has put me on two types of medicine to cure. I've had lots of high temperatures. Needless to say, I haven't given Mommy & Daddy much rest. For many nights I had to get them to rock me to sleep 3-5 times in the middle of the night. I'm feeling much better now, back to my old self of crawling ALL over the place and pulling myself up onto anything I can. I also went to my first Christmas Eve service. I had a lot of fun singing all of the Christmas carols. I hope everybody has a Happy New Year!

Wow, this toy is FUN.

Hey Aunt Kristen..glad I finally got to meet you.

Is this for me??

This paper sure does taste good. Laid back in a perfect sized rocking chair.

Mommy & Daddy finally decided to get some real photographs done. I think I am pretty cute. Enjoy.

Christmas Pics

Our little daughter continues to grow and bring us joy. We are very excited about celebrating our first Christmas as parents. Anna is fully on the move now. She crawls very efficiently and can pull her self up by herself. We decided to take some Christmas pictures. As you can see from the follwing pictures, it's not easy :) And the winner is.......................................The family at a Young Life Christmas party.Anna's first injury requiring a bandaid. She stuck her finger in the vent & cut it. She is a cute patient.
She still loves to snuggle & suck on her fingers.
She loves playing with toys and pulling them out of the basket herself.
Full of smiles.

Discovering her basket of toys for the first time.

Worn out from a hard day of playing.
This is how she wakes us up in the AM now. She just hasn't figured out how to get herself down yet.
