Look at this grown-up little boy in his overalls! He’s so cute.
He likes books!
Here he is in his Christmas outfit from his great aunt and uncle in D.C.:
We put up these flags that A.’s brother’s wife made for their wedding and then gave us for Ari’s bedroom. They’re so cheerful! Ari’s room is looking very nice.
My mom did a nice job decorating our Christmas tree! One section of lights burnt out though.
Andrew got lots of presents because he’s been on sort of an enforced rest to heal his limp, so he needs things to keep him entertained inside.
We only gave Ari a few things, since he doesn’t really care yet.
He liked this clove-favored candy cane! It was too strong for me!
Christmas was a pretty sleepy day for me. I was off the night before but was still awake most of the night, and I worked Christmas night so I had to sleep part of the day anyway. Ari and I slept in in the morning while A. had dim sum with a friend, then we opened presents, ate cookies, and had a nice walk.
The day after Christmas, we drove up to visit my parents and brother and grandma (and my aunt and uncle and cousins came up to visit, too!). We brought some jars of baby food (I don’t even cook for myself! Making baby food isn’t really happening…) and Ari tried pears with his grandma:
He spent some time boogie-ing on the floor:
And standing up!
