Baby’s first Christmas is officially underway in our household. Although we aren’t going overboard with presents, we have found a few small ways to enjoy and document our first Christmas as a family.
After waiting an hour in line, Bridget met Santa Claus for the first time. She was fascinated by his beard and could barely take her eyes off of him long enough for this picture.
Brian and I have an ornament from each year that represents that year. Wedding bells for 2008, First Year in Our New Home for 2009, etc. This year has been all about Bridget. Our nickname for her is Bridget Bear, so we chose a family of polar bears to represent 2012.
I’ve been patiently waiting for the first snowfall for my next photo shoot with Bridget. Since it hasn’t yet come (which is perfectly fine with me), I took advantage of a festive backdrop at our local mall. As you’ve probably gathered here and here, I am a fan of black and white photos, so I snuck one in but needed to keep the others in color so you could appreciate the adorable hat crocheted by my talented mother-in-law.
Merry Christmas to all!
