I am well aware that Christmas has come and gone, buuuuut, well so did my blogging game. So I’m just now forcing your eyeballs to feast on some holiday pictures (lest you fret, New Years will be up some time next week. You’re welcome) of the babe’s first Christmas.
First we played in our “Santa, define good” onesie, where Sheffield pretended to be an emo baby.
And then he decided to be cute.
It was unseasonably warm and gross, but it was still really fun. Our fire department in the city we live in comes through the neighborhood every year with Santa — so we know when we hear fire truck alarms on Christmas Eve that Santa is coming to town. We rushed outside so baby boo could see him. The fire truck stopped ( in the middle of the street ) just to wave to him. It was awesome!!
Here’s a pic of me looking pretty rough, and Sheffield paying zero attention.
After the fire truck excitement, it was time for a Christmas Eve bath, bottle and Christmas jammies. While I was sitting on the couch feeding him, I was like, how cool would it be if we could get Sheffield to sleep pose under the tree? And it was cool, because look how awesome these pics turned out. I was too afraid to pull out my good camera because of the noise, so the little iPhone pics will have to do.

After baby boo was in bed, B and I opened presents, drank some champagne and went to bed fairly early.
Sheffield woke us up the next morning just too excited to open presents — kidding, he had no clue what was going on. BUT he did thoroughly enjoy eating and playing with the wrapping paper. We went down to the in-laws for Christmas Day, where the child got spoiled some more. The next day we came home and got to play with our new toys.
I mean, check out the face. Doesn’t get much better than that.
So that was our first Christmas! Bummer that we didn’t get a family photo, but I figure that we have the rest of his life for that. And at some point he will be able to turn to me and say, “put the camera away, Mom.” And then I can’t wait to snap one more picture in his face.
