Fiona's First Christmas

Monday, December 28, 2015

We had such a family filled week with my mom and sister visiting us for Christmas day and a quick trip to Bay City to see Pat's family. We had all had a great time with lots of new memories. I was a little concerned about Fiona's mood since she is currently trying to learn to eat from a spoon, trying to crawl, cutting new teeth and still fighting her never ending cold. Girlfriend is busy. Her current crawling status is rotating around a full 360 degrees and scooting backward until she gets stuck in a corner or her legs get stuck under the couch! She was so sweet and cuddly and thank goodness she loves sucking her thumb because that appendage gets her through a lot. Patrick was able to have some time off work and we even went to see the new Star Wars movie. The holiday went so fast but we are excited to play with Fiona's new toys and sweet books. She got a lot of cute clothes, some rubber blocks, which she loves knocking down towers we build so she can chew on their edges. She also got a rocking horse and a stuffed bear that repeats everything you say back to you in a chipmunk voice! Michigan didn't have a white Christmas this year, but there is still plenty of winter left for Fiona to wear her snowsuit. We are so blessed to have this happy baby with us to make the holiday season so bright, and blessed to have a wonderful family who love her so much.
