First Christmas Day

Merry Christmas to everyone, first and foremost.

Since our gift came 3 months early, we were lucky enough to share Christmas day with the little man. He made out like a bandit. He got some new clothes, a rubber ducky, a really cool CD for sleeping time later in his life, and an awesome snail toy with a mirror that I might borrow and play with.

I have a couple videos of the special day for you all here;

Since this is our first child, we really have no "family traditions" though I am pushing for a Star Wars Saga tradition for future Christmas days. I am sure that will not be met with the best of acceptance, but its worth trying, right? ha ha.

The first gift is something we have both waited for. Since it only happens once, we figured we better catch it on video. He was totally enthralled as you can see. He slept thorough pretty much every single gift so I guess that means that I get to play with them all first, just to see if they are working properly *wink*.

After a rough morning of sleeping the little man really needed a nap. He crashed out and started his "snore/cooing" that he does so we captured it for him to hear later.

Prior to the 25th, we did some photos with Julie's family so here they are. The little man LOVED all the attention, though he, again, slept through it all.

Wishing you all the merriest of Christmases. I have no idea if I have spelled that properly, but it sure looks cool so its staying.

Have a wonderful day with your friends and families!

  1. Merry Christmas Tom, Julie and Mason! Alex and I have really enjoyed reading through your blog and sharing in some of your earlier experiences. It was bittersweet seeing the early pictures when he was so small and fragile. That must have been a very difficult time for you, but I know you handled it with more faith and grace than most could ever hope for. We miss you in the NICU, but are so happy that your family is complete at last. Thank you so much for all the kindness and generosity. Speaking with you both was truly uplifting, and was always a highlight of my day. We were scared and lost at first, but you were there to offer a smile and encouraging words that always brought us comfort. It was truly a blessing get to know you, even for a short time, and Mason is a precious baby indeed. I miss hearing his little grunts! Thankfully our boys are starting to chime in with their own and keeping it loud in room 3. We started a little blog to update family and friends as well. It's not as thorough as yours, but everyone likes the pictures the most anyway. :) It's on here too at babyhorns,blogspot.com I hope you had a very merry Christmas and enjoy the rest of the holiday season. We'll be sure to keep in touch!
