We survived Blaise's First Christmas! It was so much fun! We love getting so many Christmas cards and photos from friends and family this time of year, it helps us keep up on what is going on in everyone's lives. We even got our white Christmas, I'm not sure the last time I remember that happening!
On the Friday before Christmas, Mike, Blaise and I went to Grandma and Grandpa Sudmann's and Santa and Mrs. Clause showed up!! We were all at the kitchen table when they walked in and Blaise did okay for about the first three minutes. It went downhill from there! HA! He had the typical reaction- he cried and whinned almost the whole time they were there! It was so funny, he would do okay for a second, than as soon as he looked back at Santa- more tears. We did get a few photos of him actually sitting on their lap.
We celebrated Christmas with the Hartwell's at Grandma and Grandpa Hartwell's on Thursday night. This time, when opening his presents he actually got excited when he saw what it was! So much fun!
He is very determined and tries very hard to crawl, however has mastered the face plant very well! He gets his butt all the way up in the air, and uses his shoulders instead of his arms at this point. He will get it very soon I'm sure.
His new trick is scrunching up his nose and snorting. I have no clue where he learned this at, but it's on repeat right now!
We are so excited for 2013. 2012 brought us overwhelming joy and sadness, hope and despair. We are hoping for a very, very uneventful 2013!!
