Merry (belated) Christmas!
We have finally made it back home after doing the family Christmas shuffle from San Antonio to Chicago back to San Antonio and home again. We are tired and ready to sleep in our very own bed.
Christmas this year with our families had a little different vibe to us this year since this is the last Christmas that it will be just James and I. Next year, everyone will have to come to us because I really don't think extensive traveling with a 5 month old is gonna happen.
Christmas presents this year also had, unsurprisingly, a definite baby tone. James' mom gave us a Beaba Babycook Baby Food Maker. Its a little all-in-one steamer and food processor to make homemade baby food. I'm all about home made baby food too. Healthier and cheaper? Yes please!
James' brother gave me a Moby wrap to haul the little tyke around hands free. I've even gotten James to try it out with a doll and he agreed it's pretty awesome. Now I can get things done around the house while holding Bean.
On the Bolton side of things, my sister loaded the kiddo up on Winnie the Pooh paraphernalia. Bean got some bibs, sleepers, and a stuffed Pooh. She also gave us some plain white onsies that we will be tasked with embellishing when she comes down to stay in a week. I thought some simple hand embroidery would be cute like this.
Of course Bean got a present from Mommy and Daddy too. A terrifyingly adorable stuffed alligator with a wonky eye seemed perfect to us.
