We had a wonderful Christmas this year! The night before, we made Christmas cookies and decorated them to leave out for Santa. John and I heard the girls start to talk and giggle around 4 am. I think they confirmed that our house had been visited by Santa and then they went back to sleep until 7.
JT was still sleeping, so we let him be and let the girls get going on their stockings. My thought is let sleeping babies be unless absolutely necessary. No need to wake him this year, since he doesn't have a clue what opening presents on Christmas morning means. JT woke up about an hour later and we finished the girls stuff and then ate a nice breakfast.
Then our little man finally was allowed to open his gifts with all eyes on him. The girls arranged his presents and Lindsay let JT use her Christmas blanket to sit on to open his gifts. To our surprise, JT really enjoyed grabbing and ripping the wrap off! So much of JT's enjoyment of this morning was his ability to make noise with the paper, put every single gift in his mouth while still wrapped, and have his family OOOOoooo and AAhhhh at his every move.
After a wonderful Christmas ham dinner, we had a little photo shoot of JT in a Santa hat and nothing else! It was so cute. I just love the soft baby skin and all of his little rolls that go along with that sweet smile. Merry Christmas!!
