Grayson's First Christmas

Really, a Christmas post the last week of January? Reeeaaallllyyy? 

I know.

Basically, I have been completely slacking on this and I would just let it go BUT it was Grayson's first Christmas and I feel like I have to document it. So I'm gonna be short on words and heavy on pictures and once this is done I won't feel like a terrible mommy blogger who skipped over her baby's FIRST CHRISTMAS.

So here we go.

Grayson's first Christmas was a lot. Just, a lot. We went from Texas to Tulsa to Norman back to Texas. We celebrated with my mom and uncles, then the rest of my mom's family, then with A's brother's family, then with my parents, then with all of the rest of A's family and my parents. It was a lot.

Grayson got more gifts than any 8 month old baby ever should. He got so many gifts that I still will get in his toy box and pull out something I don't remember seeing. He absolutely loved it, although sometimes he seemed to be a bit overwhelmed by it all.
We put out milk and cookies for Santa and he wore his cute little Santa pjs...and then he slept until something like 10 on Christmas morning. It was awesome, and I have a feeling that will be the very last year that he's not waking us up at the crack of dawn to see what Santa brought.

And don't worry, Addie was almost as spoiled as Grayson. She got several gifts from my family, and Santa brought her a few things, too. She looooves opening presents, and it was so super overwhelming for me to try and keep up with her and Grayson at the same time. How do parents of more than one kid handle Christmas?
The only downside to the entire thing is that I did a terrible job of taking pictures. You wouldn't know it, because there will be about a bajillion attached to this post, but I feel like I missed SO much important stuff. Like, pictures with looks like Grayson didn't even see his grandparents on his first Christmas! And a really cute sitting under the Christmas tree photo? Where is that?

But aside from that, it pretty much was amazing and fun and wonderful and memorable and all of the things that a baby's first Christmas should be. It was by far the best Christmas I've ever had, and I can't wait until next year when he really gets it and is super excited.

Loved it, love him, love you guys. See ya tomorrow.
