Will’s Christmas, 2013, Round 2

We've had a few more Christmas celebrations since the last post, Will's Christmas, 2013, so we wanted to share more photos:

Will’s Christmas, 2013

Updated December 26, 2013: a second round of Christmas photos has been posted!

Halloween Fun

This year for Halloween I wanted Will to wear a Curious George costume (his current all-time favorite character) and for Marc to be the "man in the yellow hat." After scouring the Internet and Craigslist for a few weeks, I was able to find both costumes for a total of $20 (yay!). You might be asking what I was for Halloween. Well, I was the pregnant lady, of course! I made these fun skeleton t-shirts for Marc and I to wear to a separate party. Here are a bunch of fun photos of us in the past few weeks:

Warming up to Santa

When you're only one year old, I'm guessing Santa is just a strange man with lots of white facial hair sitting in a really big chair inside the mall. It's no wonder he makes lots of children frown and cry! We didn't really know what to expect this year when we brought Will to see Santa at the North Shore Mall. A part of me was picturing Will experiencing stranger anxiety while sitting on Santa's lap. Luckily for us, he warmed up to Santa by the last photo of our session, due mostly to the lady elf who tickled his stomach with a bell toy of some sort.

Summer’s End

Summer really did fly by this year. Will had so many adventures including the beach, the pool, Six Flags, and trips to Grandma & Grandpa's, just to name a few. Now that he is nine months old, we are already discussing birthday parties - yikes! Here are a few of our memories from this summer. Now on to my favorite season of all - Fall!

Easter Celebrations

A few weeks ago we celebrated Easter,  which ended up being more of an Easter weekend, visiting both sides of our family. Though it was a whirlwind, we had a great time with everyone and enjoyed doing things as a "family of three." 

I love Easter, especially because it's the day that reminds us that Jesus conquered death, but also because it has come to symbolize new life, springtime, and all things fresh. Will certainly fits in to the whole "new and fresh" theme. :)

How’s the Weather?

Even people who don't have babies themselves know that babies tend to cry... a lot. My sister-in-law tells our neice that this is just the baby's way of talking to us because he doesn't have words yet. This is true and a nice way of putting it when your neice is standing in your kitchen with her hands over her ears because your baby is crying—I mean, talking quite loudly. Even though Will is actually a very happy baby and doesn't cry that often or for too long of a period, there have definitely been a few moments in our short parenthood experience where we have had to remind ourselves that, yes, we have checked all of the regular causes for a meltdown (dirty diaper, hunger, wanting to be held, wanting to be put down, overtired, overstimulated, understimulated, etc.) and that Will just needed to 'talk' about his baby problems.

Baby Will is sad.

Bedtime Routine

A little while ago, we decided to start a bedtime routine with Will, even if he was a bit young to really benefit from it. Each night we feed him, give him a bath, lotion him up, dress him in pj's, swaddle him in the Miracle Blanket (thanks, Becky!) and read him a book or three before feeding him again, or "topping off the tank," and laying him down (usually already sleeping) in the crib.

Marc often uses his man-dar (man radar) to find the most manly books he can, including Movers, a book about transportation, and Construction Zone, a book that highlights a variety of heavy machinery. What's wrong with The Runaway Bunny or Love You Forever?  :)
