First Christmas!

Hope, 4.5 monthsWhat a lot of fun we had for Hope’s first Christmas! As we currently don’t have a working 4-WD vehicle, and our road is muddy and snowy right now, we had to leave the house before it thawed in the morning, and came back home after it froze over again at night. We spent the day having fun with family at Grandma & Grandpa’s house. Hope made the rounds getting held by everyone, working on her efforts to roll over (so very close to almost there) and sharing lots of happy smiles and laughs. 

Hope’s favorite gift was a big baby bouncer from Grandma & Grandpa just loaded with toys! The box said it was for kids a little bigger than her, that could sit up on their own already, but with the help of a rolled blanket around her in the seat she’s enjoying it already. It didn’t take her long at all to realize she could put her little toes on the ground and start to bounce herself, and though she doesn’t yet grab the toys she was able to push them with her hand to make them move and rattle.

Hope was adorably cute in a little red dress from her other Grandma in CA, finished up perfectly with a matching little red cap. Enjoy the pictures!
