The aftermath...

Holy cow does Christmas take on a whole new life when there is a baby in the mix!! Emma was just a tiny bit spoiled this year, though I'm sure that tradition will continue. We had a wonderful week.... my brother and Sam came into town (it was Sam's first Christmas too) and we spent a couple days with at my parents' house, eating good food, playing games, and hanging out.
Emma's big developments this week: She can clap, wave and she kissed "the baby" in the mirror. It amazing to watch how quickly she catches onto things now, she is so much fun!!

Auntie Sam knitted Emma this hat and scarf

My baby, the joker

There are times when Emma is so cute that I just can't even find the words to express it. This is one of those times. Glad you had a great Christmas!!
