Christmas...

Lucy's first Christmas, to be exact!

We had a bit of a bow malfunction (rookie mistake!) but we had to take Lucy to see Santa for her first Christmas!

Christmas was, what.. 3 weeks ago now, and I still haven't written about it? Such is life with a newborn, right?! ;) But better late than never! 

She has changed everything. Because of her, this year I didn't dread Christmas... for the first time in 15 years. And I can only imagine it will get better as she grows up. When I found out I was having a Christmas baby, I know this sounds cliche but I knew she was a gift from God. I never would have chosen a December birthday for my baby, but she couldn't have come at a more perfect time. For the past 15 years, December has been the worst month for me.. and I dread Christmas every year because it's the last time I saw my Dad... but now the best day of my life is in December and it really has been the #bestChristmasever. Thank you, Lucy <3

It was a little surreal to have an extra stocking this year.

We had lots of visitors in the weeks after Lucy was born... including Cousin and Lucy's great-grandma Eileen. 

I love this picture! 4 generations!! So special :)

We also took Lucy on her first trip to North Vernon and she did great! She pretty much slept through the whole visit. 

I brought my real camera but forgot to put a memory card in it... apparently that's what happens when you don't get much sleep! ;) Thank goodness for iPhones! 

We had a great first Christmas with our little peanut - the best gift we could have asked for! Hope you all had a great one, too!
