Christmas List 2009

So it is time for Michael's first Christmas list! I know he probably won't remember this Christmas but I will never forget this feeling. I am so much more excited about it this year. Not only will I get time off with my beautiful son, but I just want to give him so many things! He has such a personality now and I just want to give him the world! Anyway, maybe next year Michael can make his own list for Santa. Right now I know he will just be happy with the lights on the tree. Regardless, family has been asking so here is a visual list of what baby Michael wants (and actually needs) for Christmas!

Warmer clothes and shoes for 6 months and 6-9 months. These are all too cute, they are from Old Navy. Our favorite place to shop for him is Old Navy and Gap. Too cute, he looks like a little man now with pants and everything. No more little white onesies and socks! He also needs warm sleepers that have little footies.

I LOVE these PraiseBaby CDs and DVDs. Michael LOVES music and will just stare at me while I sing to him. It is actually the only thing that will get him to sit still. :) These are just so sweet.

Of course we have some Baby Einstein toys on the list. I have other things for him, but seriously EVERYTHING that is from Baby Einstein he loves! Remember that any toys you get him can't be smaller than a toilet paper roll!

Baby Bear

Well thanks to Paw Paw and his WAY better camera, we have some awesome four month bear pictures. I am amazed at how big he is even though he seems small compared to other babies. He is now rolling over from belly to back and just laughs and laughs. He has such a sweet temperament. My favorite part of the day is when I wake him up in the morning and he just smiles. This weekend his tummy was a bit upset so around 3 am I put him in bed with us. He just sleeps in his little wedge in the center of our huge bed. As I began to open my eyes, I noticed that he was just staring at me. When I focused and our eyes met, he just smiled and reached for my face. What a way to wake up! I wonder how long he had been staring at me? Oh my sweet little angel. I wish I was home with him right now!

Happy Halloween Sweet Baby!

Well Michael you made it through your first Halloween and I have to say you were the cutest Yoda on the planet. We went to McKinney to see Bitt Bitt, Uncle Matt and Quinn. On Friday morning the first thing Quinn said to you was, "I want that one for Christmas". He wanted you to be his baby brother. All weekend long he kept bringing you toys and giving you kisses without prompting. He wanted me to put you down so you could play with him. So sweet. When he saw you in your costume he kept calling you "Little Yoda". I know you won't remember but we all thought it was too precious. You two are it right now, sweet cousins. It reminds me of the song "Just the two of us". Quinn is a great big cousin! You had fun with your Bitt Bitt and she even made you laugh a bit. Uncle Matt is the best at making silly faces and noises for you. Quinn was such a big boy in his Brady Quinn costume. I can't believe Gary found shoulder pads to fit a 2 1/2 year old! If only we could have stayed longer!

So you slept through the Halloween Festival at church but you were awake for part of the UT game. I just can't believe how much you have changed in just one week. Now you make this cute girggly noise and you laugh so hard even when no one is tickling you. You reach for things and can actually grab them now. Of course the first thing you do is put whatever you have just grabbed right in your mouth. You love your binkie now (thank goodness) and you usually sleep through the night. You don't like plain rice cereal but you are beginning to tolerate the mixed fruit rice cereal. You have officially discovered your feet and love to lay down, grab both feet and roll from side to side. You can pick up your head and rest on your arms when you are on your tummy and you have discovered Kaya although I don't think you know what she is yet. You are a super ticklish baby especially on your neck. Best of all you are my sweetest little boy with the most adorable facial expressions. I can only imagine what you are thinking. I love you so much little man and I can only imagine what the next month will bring.
