12 Days of Christmas!

We received a few presents in the mail a couple of days after Christmas. Some friends of ours in Australia sent the most adorable little Emus. Also, my parents sent a cute “baby’s first Christmas” ornament with some books and blocks. So, of course, I had to post those pictures too.

Ezekiel’s First Christmas!

We had a fun first Christmas with Ezekiel. I’m not sure he really knew what was going on. He didn’t seem to understand why we had hidden a bunch of new toys under paper.

I had him all dressed up in a “my first Christmas” outfit, but unfortunately it didn’t make it to present/picture time.

Working up a Sweat

This afternoon Ezekiel was playing and every time he was on his tummy he would push himself up into a push-up position and hold himself there. I guess he thought it was fun because he kept doing it all afternoon.

Where Art Thou Oh Christmas Tree?

A few Saturdays ago Bryan, Ezekiel and I set out to find the prefect Christmas tree. We were looking for a tree that was at least 10 feet tall so we could get at least 1000 lights on it. Ezekiel loves lights so I wanted to make sure it lit up the room. After we drove over 40 miles we ended up finding a tree at a lot less than one mile from our house. When we were out in the field we realized, once again, that it’s hard to tell how tall a tree is just by looking at it. So, we picked out a tree that looked pretty good and after Bryan sawed it down we carried it to the car. Luckily we had help bailing the tree and putting it on top of the car.

Once we got the tree home I measured it and it was 11.5 feet. I have been working slowly on hanging the lights on the tree and I finally finished yesterday. We think there are between 1400 and 1600 lights on the tree. We ran out of lights so I took some strands from the “outside” light stash and I think a few of them had 200 lights per strand. Bryan helped me put the ornaments on the tree last night and when Ezekiel woke up from his nap he stared in awe at the bright Christmas tree.

*The ladder next to the tree in the 4th picture is 7 feet 8 inches tall. It’s to give you an idea of how tall the tree is.

Chip Off The Old Block

Ezekiel has been interested in Bryan’s X Box controller lately. So, the other day Bryan took the batteries out and let him play with it. It held his interest for a good 10 minutes. Wonder if he will like playing X Box when he gets older, or if he just likes all the colors on the controller.

Baby Uggs!

Thanks Aunt Michelle for bringing me warm Uggs from Australia. They keep my feet toasty when it is cold outside.

*Ezekiel has been teething, that’s why his cheeks are so red.

Evening Fun!

When I cook dinner in the evening Ezekiel has fun playing in his baby gym. Then when Ezekiel hears daddy come in he gets very excited. He knows that they get to play together for a bit before dinner. Their evening time together is priceless and I wouldn’t miss those moments for the world.

Food Fight!

We first started Ezekiel on his baby rice cereal, and he liked that. Then, for Thanksgiving we tried sweet potatoes and he also liked that. Last week I made green beans and he didn’t like them at all. I even tried to hide them in his rice cereal, but he caught onto me after a while. I’m not sure if it was the taste or the texture. Next time I make him green beans I’m going to cook them longer and puree them more. We shall see if that helps any. Next week we are going to try acorn squash so we will see how that turns out.
