Christmas Morning

We had a lovely Chrismas Morning, Grandma, Auntie Sarah and Auntie Emma came over to open presents at our house. It was the first time we have ever opened presents in our own how and the first time we have really had any presents under our tree. Joshua was fascinated by all the presents that appeared under the tree while he was asleep and attempted to climb the mountain.
We all received wonderful gifts, Joshua got lots of toys and clothes.

Christmas Eve I

I am little behind so here I go.

The holiday's were wonderful for us! Christmas Eve we went to Mass, we went much earlier than in previous years to accomodate Joshua's bedtime. Joshua was very good through the entire mass, mainly because he fell asleep on Auntie Sarah.

After Mass we came home and got Joshua ready for bed and he opened up his Christmas pjs from us, this is a tradition that I wanted start and then he got ready for bed and Chris, Angela, Sarah, Emma and I had nice evening in with lots of food.

Some Early Christmas Presents

On the Saturday before Christmas Opa and Nona came to drop off some presents for Joshua, since i figured he would have more than enough to open on Christmas morning we opened a few together.

It was a lot of fun, Joshua got his very first ride on Digger and a new pair of Edmonton Oilers pajamas, since he outgrew his first pair a long time ago.

Finally Crawling

What an exciting morning we have had today, Joshua has finally started crawling, it is still a bit slow and a bit shakey, but he has finally progressed from his thrusting movements. For a month and a half now he has been fairly mobile, but this movement involved him thrusting around the house, getting up on his hands and knees rocking back and forth and shooting himself forward, he was not understanding that he needed to use his arms, until this morning. He also started being able to sit himself up on his own and he has started to climb me. I know not all babies learn to crawl and "apparently" the norm for sitting up on their own was 11 months but I was getting a bit anxious for him to meet these milestones. He has also started climbing the step from the living room to the kitchen/dining room so he can get all over our main floor. Good thing we moved our playpen on to the mainfloor, otherwise I don't know how I would get anything done.

Meet the newest addition to our family, Waldo. We picked him up for the Edmonton Humane Society a week ago. He is 3 months old and is a wonderful kitten so far. Joshua loves watching and Scott, the bunny, has been enjoying putting him in his place!
