MomDot Christmas of Dreams Blog Party: Day 1
The ladies at MomDot are hosting a Christmas of Dreams Blog Party with different blogging topics each day. Of course there are prizes involved, but it's also a great chance to get to know some new bloggers.
Today's topic is sponsored by La Belle Toile and This and That by Randi. MomDot asked us to introduce our families and share holiday photos from past years. So here we go...
If you've read any of my previous posts, you've probably figured out that my little family consists of myself (obviously!), Hubs, Big One, and Little One. This is the latest (and one of the only) pictures of all four of us.
Big One just turned 3 last month. He is such a character and very smart. We can no longer get away with redirecting him when he wants something. (What? You want that $300 moving dinosaur? Here, have a sucker instead.) If we tell him we're going to do something, he'll remember it and not let us forget! He has always been a mama's boy but also really wants to be independent. Here he is on his first Christmas. The "My first Christmas" Santa hat was a little big!
And here he was with Santa at the mall. Santa was a bit crabby. Like he would rather have his eyes dug out with a spoon than let another child sit on his lap. Fortunately, Big One was too little to know the difference!
This was the following Christmas shortly after he turned one. Notice that we went with a small tree that could be put up high out of his reach!
And here he is last year with Daddy opening his presents.
Little One is almost 6 months old already. So far she has been different than her brother in many ways. It's not fair to compare them, but it's also impossible not to compare. She started off a lot fussier than her big brother but she's turning into quite the smiley little girl. She's also VERY attached to her mama, but we spend all day every day together so it's really no surprise. I can't wait to see how she reacts to her first Christmas this year! Since we don't have any holiday pictures of her yet, here is one of her big grin!
And here's another one of my little sweetie. Seriously, don't you just want to eat her up? I may be biased but I think she's pretty darn cute.
So that's us in a nutshell. If I really went into depth on each of us this would be even longer. Brevity is not my strength. I look forward to visiting the other participants and getting to know their families!
