Fantabulous First Christmas!

I have to tell the whole wide world... I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! I only have one Christmas as my reference, but I gotta say that it's been the best! Playing with my cousins, staying up late, shorter naps, snacking, opening gifts, eating a ton of turkey, etc... it's like my top ten list of things to do.

I spent Christmas Eve day at Grandpa & Grandma Baerg's where I chilled with my cousins Paige, Josie and Taylor (visiting from Quebec... I met them for the first time earlier this week) as well as Mackenzie and Cooper. I had a terrible sleep the night before, cause I'm cutting one of my eye-teeth, so I was a little fussy at times throughout the day. But for the most part I was a pretty good kid. I got a toy tractor, a big blue elephant, a Little People airplane, a play barn complete with farm animals and hay, and jammies, to name a few of the awesome gifts I opened at the Baerg Family Christmas! I also went to the Christmas Eve service at South Abbotsford Church - I wore that snazzy shirt and tie I told you about in my dedication post, with a new Christmas red sweater to cozy up the outfit. And now it's Christmas Day and I'm hanging out at Grandpa & Grandma Horban's house. Again, so much fun! But I had another sleepless night, so I was again a little on the fussy side. Those stinkin' teeth! Always ruining my fun. Clothes, board books, a fire truck, and a Little People circus are some of the gifts I opened today. Man, I love opening gifts! I'm really good at it, too. Hardly any eating of the paper, and lots of rippage. Oh, and I almost forgot... my mommy and daddy gave me my very own rocking chair for Christmas! I got to sit in it first thing Christmas morning, and boy did I rock that chair! I'm quite the spoiled little boy, my parents say. I'll take it!

'Tis the Season!

I can't believe it's December already. My first Christmas is right around the corner, and I'm told it's going to be awesome! Apparently I really cleaned up last year, and I wasn't even around. I actually already received my first Christmas gift, from my friend Annah. We got to play together the other night. I just love playing with my friends! I've helped out with Christmas preparations so far, such as going on the annual Horban tree hunt. It sure was cold out there, but we worked together to find the perfect tree.

Today I'm spending the day with my dad, while my mom is shopping and doing other Christmas stuff with my Auntie Megan and Grandma Horban. I love hanging out with my dad. He's the coolest! We play basketball together, and other games; he's just so silly with me. Plus, he lets me watch TV when my mommy's not around! He has to keep a close eye on me though, because I'm pulling myself up on everything and starting to walk around while holding onto furniture. I'm a little unsteady on my feet, so I tend to fall every now and again. Most of the time I'm pretty brave and don't even cry, but this one time I hit the side of my head hard on a toy and I had a crazy big bump! I'm starting to say more words, such as "up" and "all done" as well as "bye bye". I've discovered I can play peek-a-boo myself, and I can bop to music... it's so much fun!
