I am loving our weekends a little extra these days because there are so many fun Christmas things to do right now! This Saturday Henry (and Shawn!) will be attending their first Christmas parade! I can't wait- I have been planning these fun Holiday activities since before Henry was even born:)
Oh Henry, my little chunkey monkey. He had his 9-month checkup on Tuesday. He's a healthy little thing:) 22.9lbs and 29 inches= 83rd and 75th percentiles!
This little peanut also finally figured out how to pull up in his crib. I'm loving the fact that he's not very mobile yet, so this makes me a little sad:( Time to lower the mattress!
We got our new advent calendar this week (just a few days late). It's huge! It's a little more kid-ish looking than I usually go for, but it's adorable. Next year, when Henry can understand a bit more, I'm going to fill each pocket with all kinds of treats and Christmas time to-do's : Look at lights, read
Luke 2, watch a Christmas movie, etc... I love the idea of a bunch of fun family dates! My Friend Natasha has an awesome list of Advent activities on her blog.
This is so stinkin' cute. Who doesn't love Jimmy Fallon and vintage Mariah Carey's music?
My tree is all decorated, I may do some kind of big bow as a topper because we don't have one, and I can't find any I like. Also, the stockings are up but I still need to decorate the mantle!
I love Christmas decorating, but this is only our third Christmas in this house- I feel like we need some more decorations. I plan on stealing my childhood nativity scene from my mom's house this weekend:)
*Stealing a nativity set sounds so wrong- I promise I have her permission:)
I took myself on a coffee date last night. Henry was fussy all day and Mama needed a break.
Coffee, magazines and some baked goodness did the trick!
I'm embarrassed that I care so much, but I'm SO excited about a new royal baby! Kate Middleton is just so lovely and I can't wait to see her pregnant and hear the baby name!
I'm hoping we make it to see Santa this weekend- I can't wait for Henry's first picture with the big guy. I plan to frame them and put them out each Christmas.
Well that's all for now, it's been a pretty good week. Hoping for a great weekend. We're kicking it off with a family burger date tonight!
