On Saturday before Christmas some of my besties came over to do our yearly Christmas Party. We've been doing this literally for like 20yrs. Now that we're older we always get gift cards and play Chinese Christmas and bring yummy appetizers. Sorry Christy I meant to take a picture before you left, and Liz could not make it = (
On Christmas Eve we just hung out at our house with my parents and did gifts and Andrew made some yummy soup because it was freezing outside!! We had a great Christmas with my parents and I was sad to see them leave Christmas morning. But good thing they did because they got hit with TONS of snow. I'm not going to lie I'm a little jealous of all the snow they got, but not the fact that they lost electricity.
= ( Also, on Christmas Cooper got his first bath! I had Andrew give him one and I took the pictures. Cooper LOVED the bath- I think just the warm water and sound of water. He started crying when Andrew took him out ha!
On Christmas morning we got ready and headed to MiMi and Papaw's (Andrew's parents) house. She always makes yummy sausage balls, cinnamon rolls, homemade hot chocolate, cheese ball and other goodies. This year she added some jello ornaments and they were soooo good.
Get ready for picture galore:

My sweet boy, you'll be 2 weeks tomorrow and I can't believe it!!!! You're quite awake in the early evenings after I feed you and will coo some and look around a lot. We've been doing some tummy time just on daddy but tonight we also did it on the floor on your giraffe mat (pictures next time) and you turned your head twice! Woohoo good head control big man- mommy was proud = ) You're also turning on your side some when I lay you on your back. You're sleeping great at night (wake up 1-2 times a night because dirty diaper and hungry). We've had to change your outfits quite a bit in the middle of the night because you pee out of the diapers- trying to find that diaper where it won't happen and I think the off brands work best!!!
Everyone have a great week
