Its Braxton's first Christmas! I had this really cute little outfit that he was dressed in...a red and white candy cane sleeper and santa booties and a santa beenie...but then he threw up all over them right after he ate in the morning before I got to take his picture, so he had to wear his normal everyday clothes for Christmas. I was pretty bummed about that, but such is life, right? Daddy bought him these cute Pooh and Tigger stuffed animals for Christmas. They are almost as big as he is! He's gettin' bigger and cuter every day, too. What a stud!

I was going to include a picture of me and Justin in all our morning glory as well, but I fortunately decided against that. Braxton is much cuter than both of us! Hopefully a family picture will be coming soon though!
It was our first Christmas in our new home! We had a wonderful time and can't wait to celebrate many more Holiday Seasons in this great place. The highlight of our gifts (because everyone always asks) for me was a new vacuum! (I haven't had a real one since we moved can guess how bad my carpets were with a shedding dog in the house...hhmmm). I also got a video camera so I can start recording and documenting our life and my cute little son. YAY! Justin got a new heavy duty power drill and lots of books on CD (to listen to on the the commute) and the complete season of The Wonder Years! He loves that show! We got lots of other wonderful gifts from eachother and our families but those were definitely our favorites.
I sure hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and enjoy the coming of the New Year!

Third Tags a Charm!

Ok, so I have been tagged like three times now and I finally have the time (I hope...we'll see how long Baby sleeps!) to share my fun info with ya'll. So here we go.

6 Random Facts about Myself:

1) I LOVE baby food! Those who know me real well might know this, but they still think I am a weirdo for it too! Now not the gross veggies mind you, just the yummy fruits and those little chicken sticks for babies that come in that cute little baby jar. Mmmmm...this was a tradition in my family growing up. We would all get a jar of baby food for Christmas. I don't know whether my love for baby food came from this or if it was already there before we starting getting it, but whichever it was, love it I do!

2) One of my most favorite things in the whole world is taking a hot shower on a rainy, cold afternoon. It makes me feel so safe and warm and like the world is at peace for one blissful moment. :) And then of course to get into a nice pair of sweats and curl up on the couch with chocolate and a good book....then I'm in heaven!

3) When I get really nervous I lick and chew on my lips...ALOT. I always know just how nervous I was after the event by how red and swollen my lips are. Seriously.

4) If there is one thing in this world that I don't understand a purpose for, its cockroaches. There is nothing more disgusting and creepy and USELESS and just plain GROSS than a roach in any form: big, small, brown, black, long, short, flying, crawling, hissing...YUCK. I get the heebie geebies just thinking about them!

5) I hate the word "armpit." It sounds just as gross and nasty as the actual thing itself! "Armpit." Ugh. I much prefer "underarm." Same with the word "Fart." Who ever came up with that? (It had to have been a man!)

6) I have never outgrown the dream that someday my prince (who now bears the face of a cute, curly haired Italian) will carry me off into the sunset to live in a beautiful castle in Europe where there are rolling green hills and white sandy beaches and wild horses and maybe even a few leprechans or a fairy or two. Who knows? It could happen! :)

I think most of the people I blog with have been tagged already...but if you haven't been then consider yourself tagged! :)

Baby's First...

Little Braxton's first video game! Daddy has him hooked already...he loves listening to the interesting sounds and noises Mario makes.

Braxton's first smile! Well, at least the first one I caught on camera. Isn't my son adorable? :) I could sit and watch him sleep all day.

Mommy's first all nighter...NOT fun..

Braxton's first car ride! All nice and snug like a cute little bug in a rug.

Braxton's first changing of clothes. Daddy did a wonderful job, especially since his hands are as big as babies whole body. :) I love my boys!
