Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful first Christmas with Parker. We started the holidays off by driving down to Ohio to see family and oh my, did we see family! In a little over 48 hours we went from Kris' parents to his Grandparents to my parents and then to my grandma's. It was great to see everyone and we were especially thankful to be able to have Parker meet her Great Grandparents. We don't make it to Ohio often so we wanted to make sure that everyone got to meet our little girl.

Here's four generations :) My Dad, me, my Grandma Eva, and Parker.

Parker absolutely loved her Great Grandma. She sat in her lap for the longest time and was so content.

Parker also loved her other Great Grandma! I don't think she cried once while being rocked.

Parker was on the brink of freaking out here, but we wanted to get a picture of her with her cousin, Caroline. They are only a couple months apart. It's going to be a lot of fun having them grow up together!

Parker decided to show us a new trick during the car rides...she held onto Sophie the Giraffe and brought her up to her mouth to suck on! She hasn't put anything in her mouth yet by herself so we were excited by this new skill!

Yep, I did that all by myself.

Sleeping peacefully with her giraffe. Usually Parker loves the car seat and sleeps in it the entire time we're out and about, but not on this trip! The naps were very infrequent!

Up on Christmas morning to see what Santa brought for us!

Even though Parker got a lot of new gifts, she still likes her trusty old Octopus!

Kris reading "Animal Noises" to Parker

I think she was very excited by this book! So cute!

Check out that Christmas outfit :) I had to get a picture of her in her outfit next to her stocking. She's so tiny that she could practically fit in it!


Sleepy she should be after a very exciting first Christmas! Merry Christmas everyone!!!
