Dixon’s 2nd Month

Well what do you know? We have a 2 month old on our hands! My love for this little soul is immeasurable.. It literally continues to grow every day. I get so lost in love with him … these are memories I never want to forget.

We love this little boy more than all the things in the world. We couldn’t be more blessed to call him ours. He can eat like a cow, scream as loud as hyena, and wiggles as much as a lizard. I could get lost in his big eyes every second and is the most handsome little boy I have ever seen. I could literally watch him sleep and hold him for the rest of my life. I absolutely love being his Mom.  Two months with you is the best thing that has ever happened to us tiny one! You have stolen our hearts and we couldnt be more blessed by you, we love you little man.

Our First Christmas

Our first Christmas as a party of 3 in our new home!

We decked the halls and our stockings were hung by the chimney with care.

Dave got in extra Christmas spirit when Cousin Eddie made an appearance. IMG_2180 We always feast over there with the best food such as pheasant, ham, salmon, cocktails and this… Homemade Crawfish Bisque. The crawfish shells are stuffed with dressing and it took Aunt Sherry 6 hours to make the shells.

It was AHH-MAAAZING!!!IMG_2181 Once we arrived home, these two enjoyed a silent night. I read A Night Before Christmas and The Grinch and apparently put them straight to sleep. It was definitely a Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night around here.IMG_2187The next morning was that much more fun as we had big family time. We played music, made breakfast and opened gifts. Dixon enjoyed watching everything go on in his cute first Christmas jammies.

Our very first dinner officially at our house. It went great and the company was even better. We made a duck and ate at our festive table! I officially feel like an adult, I think.CD9A8096CD9A8093CD9A8088Then we headed to Minden to see my family where we had the 2nd Annual Tolar Turkey Bowl.CD9A8376I finally got my grandfather to hold his great grandson who he claims is way too small to be held, but he managed perfectly. CD9A8309CD9A8313The game was a little more intense this year. Everyone seemed to have their game face on unlike last year when it seemed to be a big joke. Muscles were sore.CD9A8344CD9A8302CD9A8289CD9A8248CD9A8365I am coming with vengeance next year after this c section heals.

We ended the game with some sweaty family pictures.CD9A8420CD9A8443CD9A8451CD9A8451aIt was a special Christmas with everyone. A lot of first happened for us, and I know the holidays will get sweeter and sweeter as Dixon gets bigger. I however love it just the way it is.
