Baby’s First Christmas

IMG_3532 Christmas has and always will be a special time of year for us to spend with family. I have always been someone who loves engaging in traditions and the Christmas season is a time of year that is filled with many for us. I can’t wait for Emsley to be a bit older so we can create new traditions with her and watch her as she anticipates this season. It feels like yesterday that we were sharing our exciting news with our families of being pregnant with our little “blueberry” exactly one year ago today. Crazy to think that it has been a whole year since we were discussing how different this Christmas would be having a little baby around and here we are now living it! Emsley brings us so much joy each and everyday but it’s on holidays and events like Christmas that we gather with family and are able to see the joy that she brings to everyone she encounters. There is nothing greater than being her parents and witnessing this!

I don’t ever really need an excuse to play dress up with my babe but the Christmas season does excite me as there is nothing cuter than seeing babies in dresses, frills and “Santa” apparel. I realize that Emsley is only going to be this little for so long and therefore I feel it’s important to not only enjoy dressing her (while she still lets me!) but also to capture all these special moments, as I am already seeing how fast time is passing since she made her arrival in this world.

Merry First Christmas baby girl!

The song “It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to” played in my head as I tried my best to calm her down. (Hard to take her seriously in her cute tutu dress). However, enter the boppy, aka soother and our girl was good to go!
