Holiday Fun

Sorry this is about a month late...but we did have a very fun holiday season this year with our little Lexie girl. It was fun to see her face light up when she would see Christmas decorations, and hearing her "Ho Ho Ho" when she saw anything with Santa. The Sunday before Christmas she was dressed up in her Christmas best and we took some pictures.
Here she is opening a box in preparation of the big day.
Cute girl pointing at the Christmas Tree.
She loved the big nutcracker which she thinks growls because of a funny joke Bryan did which just kind of stuck.
Christmas Eve we headed over to spend the weekend with my family. We had a great time visiting with family, enjoying traditions, and eating way too much yummy food...this year all of my weight gain is going to be blamed on pregnancy. :)

Here Lexie is with Grandpa and her new baby's bottles, and with her new fisher price people from Grandpa and Grandma. She loves those toys!
This is Bryan with his new old-school "V" DVDs and lovely me with one of my many new books to read! Lexie is playing with her kitty keyboard named "Applebee" which she named for one of the songs the keyboard plays about a cat named Applebee. She loves playing music and singing in the microphone...our little music lover.
Lexie loves all of her new toys and I was happy she got new things that are more on her level to play with. She has so many more options now, and especially loves her new "Mega Bloks" which she builds towers with every day. We all had a wonderful Christmas and the best part was just being with family and enjoying being together. It's my favorite time of year and Lexie just made it so much more fun this year!

This video was taken on New Year's Eve. She was in her hyper stage which she gets in when she's winding down at night. She's pushing her new baby in the new stroller (with the hiccups) that were both given to her by Santa. She loves to talk a lot and has many words in her vocabulary, but sometimes you just don't know what she's talking about when she runs around babbling. I love this video because she goes from hyper and pushing the stroller, to feeding the baby a bottle, and toward the end you can tell she's ready for bed.

New Year's Eve was low-key this year. We spend the night at home and made homemade pizza which was delicious! Here we are before dinner.
As you can see, Lexie was tired of getting her picture taken and just wanted to eat. The next picture shows her mood change after having yummy pizza in her belly!
After dinner, Lexie played with Daddy and went to bed around 9:00. Bryan and I then watched a movie and toasted the new year with some Welch's sparkling grape juice and were in bed by around 12:15 (yes we are old and boring now).
We wish you all a Happy New Year and we are looking forward to a great year full of many more memories as we add a little guy to our family in just a few months!

It's a...

BOY!
We were surprised, but we are super excited for Lexie to have a little brother! I love this 3D shot of him with his little arm up with the hand on his head. Bryan does that same thing all the time when he is tired and says it is a Lyman trait. I also like his pouty lips. We know he's going to be a real cutie!
This is a profile shot with his head turned to the side. He seems to be very healthy, and we can't wait to meet the little guy in May!
