The Best Gift I Ever Gave

Do you remember the best gift you ever gave someone? If you had to think less than 5 seconds then I bet it wasn't a "thing" that you gave them.

If someone asks me what the best Christmas gift I ever gave was I don't even have to think about it. I know exactly what the best gift ever was. My son.

Last year the hubs and I found out that we were expecting on Thanksgiving Eve, and since it was still early we had to keep hush during the entire holiday season leading up to Christmas day. It was SO hard. We both almost slipped up a million times.

You see, it was the first grandbaby on both sides of the family and really the first baby in either family in over 15 years.

We waited until everyone was gathered round as my husband said the blessing and included *something* (I was SO nervous, as was he that we still don't recall exactly what he said) to the effect of the new baby we will have at the holidays next Christmas.

Immediately there was lots and lots of screaming, hugging and crying. Our moms could not have been more excited. And at the end of the day we were SO tired but we did it all again - but this time with a bunch of friends where we *toasted* (I had lots of delicious sparkling cider) to the new baby on the way!

He was so loved before we even knew he was a he!

Well that Christmas-time is here now and we have an amazing 4 month old ball of love & fun. And the whole family is enjoying every single minute of it!! They cannot get enough of him and neither can I.

What is the best gift you ever gave?

Oh Christmas Tree

So let's talk about Christmas for a moment here and how I am a complete contradiction...

I started listening to Christmas music on November 1st.

I had my entire outside decorated with lights, trees, garland, wreathes, bows the weekend BEFORE Thanksgiving.

But going to get a Christmas tree... yea that didn't happen until today! And thank goodness the rain held out or it may have been days before we were able to go.

Now I just need to go find our lights for it...

Where ya goin'?

That's what we have to ask Trey every 5 seconds!

Poor kid turned 4 months last Saturday and has been trying his hardest for weeks now to crawl. He gets SO upset when he realizes he can't do it!

All which turns into this....

When did your babies start crawling? Any tips to help him figure it out?
