Someone once said, "There are three stages to Christmas: you believe in Santa Claus, you don't believe in Santa Claus, you ARE Santa Claus."
This year, Graham and I entered the third stage of Christmas, and it was my favorite yet. Will loved Christmas. Granted, he has no idea what it's really about, and he doesn't understand the concept of getting and giving presents (although he did both), but he loved staring at the Christmas lights on the tree and playing with the jingle bell ornaments.
He got lots of presents (thanks to all the grandparents and aunts and uncles). Here he is opening his first present, although he was more interested in eating the wrapping paper and bows than in playing with the contents...no surprise there.
Just about every picture we have of him involves him chewing on some form of wrapping. See...
He wasn't quite sure what to do with this one...his biggest present by far. He has outgrown his infant seat, so we bought him a new car seat for Christmas. We'll see how he likes it!
This face made Christmas extra special this year. I can't believe he is seven months old, sitting up, and trying to crawl. I look forward to many more Christmases with this little guy and teaching him the true meaning of the holiday...other than eating bows, that is.
