Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!!

We cannot wait to celebrate Christ's birth for the first time with our daughter! It's such an exciting time, especially it being our very first Christmas as a family! Jason and are trying to figure out what traditions to start, whether it be reading the Nativity story about Jesus' birth or something like that. It's kind of hard, but I do know, traditions will just come as the family grows and I can't wait.

Nevaeh has changed and grown so much in the last month. She is now walking (crazy, she's only 10 months!), talking and throwing her first tantrums. She can walk across the room but gets too excited and falls down. It's so cute. She says 'daddy', but doesn't quite know who that is yet. She waves, says and knows the word 'doggie'. It kinda sounds more like 'aggie', but she knows! And yes.... she has an attitude. She throws tantrums when we continually discipline her for something. It's hard not to laugh at it while we're teaching her!

Here are so many pictures and a couple of videos. We will see you after Christmas!!!

"I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:10b-11, NIV).

Isn't she a cute little miss santa? this is the only hat that she has not ripped off her head while screaming!!

She just (and I mean just) figured out how to turn individual pages to her books. She sat there for at least 15 minutes turning pages and looking at pictures! She's going to be my reader.
She is just getting so big and growing up so much. She does not like baby food anymore, if she can't pick it up with her fingers or eat it on her own, she really doesn't like it. Except for apple sauce, she could eat a whole thing of that in one sitting!
She is starting to realize she can close her eye before the flash comes on, so this is what a lot of our pictures look like.
hee hee
She has found her nose! She started sticking her finger up her nose one day and now we have a hard time from stopping her. It doesn't help that some people encourage it!!
These are just a couple more pics by the Christmas trees.

Here are just a couple videos of her talents! Enjoy!

Jingle Bells, Batman smells and We love Christmas!!!

'Tis the season, again, and this year it is much more exciting!! I can't believe it's been a year, but, alas, it has and now we have a 10 month old wobbling (yes, she can take up to 6 or 7 steps!) around. CRAZINESS!

We're a little late in putting up our Christmas things, but after an hour or so, they are beautiful. The funny thing, it's like a Christmas corner in our duplex. There is no sign of Christmas except in this little corner, I think I need more decorations! Hobby Lobby, here I come (when its all 90% off)!

Nevaeh doesn't bother the decorations too much, but she wants to rip the paper off the presents! We have to get after her quite a bit, but she listens and we still have all our presents intact! Please, no re-wrapping for me!

Here are a few pictures we took after everything was set up. Don't worry, there will be plenty more. She is so adorable!
Merry Christmas,
love and God Bless.

Hee hee, she woke up and her hair was crazy. I really don't know how it happens, but it does!
