Our little candy cane had a great first Christmas! We went to my Mom and Dad’s, and my brother was in from L.A. to celebrate. It was a great day filled with awesome food and great memories. Bailey was as cute as ever in her Christmas outfit (which she’s rapidly growing out of). It’s hard to believe she’s 2 months old already! My mom couldn’t stop fawning over her. Of course, what’s a Nana to do? Spoil her silly, obviously.
Bailey’s doing some new things this week – she ‘accidentally’ found her hand by grabbing it with the other one and had a look of bewilderment on her face that was just priceless. She’s turning her head 180 degrees now… even on her tummy, and the ooohs and aaahhs are coming on more frequently now, especially when I talk to her. When Matt plays with her you can see her brimming with delight, she just hasn’t figured out how to giggle or squeal yet. But it’s coming. I can see it trapped in that little body of hers. She’s been a good baby the last couple of weeks. She mainly cries when she’s hungry or when she’s tired, and 6-7 p.m. is a rough time for her since it’s the end of the day, but overall, she has a consistently happy personality and she’s very inquisitive about the world around her. She loves looking all around and taking in her surroundings. She’s been fascinated by ceiling fans and any kind of light bulb… all the usual stuff. But it’s intoxicatingly cute, and we’re realizing as first-time parents that all of these moments and milestones happen amazingly fast.
Below are some pics from her first Christmas. Enjoy!
