We are now well into December and feeling the Christmas cheer. Hallmark movies on tv, music playing all day long, and we put our tree up this week! We got a real one this year, as our little fake one fell apart. :( It's cute and squatty, but all of our ornaments fit on it! Julia was very happy to be the official tree decorator after I trimmed it up and put on the lights. Luckily James has shown no interest in it at all, so we've had no drama with him pulling it down or breaking ornaments. We still have to find a good tree topper though.
James also turned 11 months old last week, and promptly started walking on his own. He can take 2-3 steps before grabbing hold of something or dropping down to crawl. He has 5 teeth now and working on more. His favorite things are baths and trying to play with whatever Julia has. His only word is still "mama." We'll have a 1st birthday party at the end of the month with Paul's family.
Our next few weekends are filling up with church Christmas parties, cookie decorating parties, Christmas Eve service, and then we'll be at the Bourdois' for the week of Christmas with the family. :) Can't wait to see the cousins!
