Wellsley’s First Christmas

Christmas came and went in a blink of an eye! This year felt extra special with it being Wellsley’s first Christmas! We decked the halls, baked cookies, decorated gingerbread houses and did all the things that have become rich traditions in our home for the holidays.

From our family to yours, Merry (be-lated) Christmas, and Happy New Year! We hope your days have been filled with the magic of the season.

This has been such a fun season for our little family. We decked out our homes, baked loads of cookies, took a quick trip to Disneyland, visited Santa (dare I say with lots of screams and tear filled eyes), watched toy trains go round and round, hosted a cocktail party, played in freshly fallen snow, braved the malls with an independent toddler, and danced around the fire place with Christmas music playing in the background. We have tried to make the most of this magical time of year, and have created memories we’ll cherish for our lifetime.

Next year we’ll be hanging another stocking, adding another dancer to our routine and trying to keep two more little hands away from sneaking another cookie. In just a few short weeks we will meet the newest member of our family, and our life will forever change as our hearts expand to experience a fuller love than we can possibly imagine right now. The reality of our growing family feels more real every day, and we are so excited.

But for now, it’s only the three of us and so we are celebrating and savoring sweet moments with just our one little person, and treasuring life the way it is.

From our growing family to yours, we truly wish you a Merry Christmas, and a wonderful holiday season.

When Grey was 8 days old

I can’t believe that Grey turned 8 weeks old this week and I have still been sitting on these picture from when he was just 8 days old! I hadn’t realized how much he had grown since our first week at home together until I looked back on these photos. Everyone told us how fast time will go and how quickly he would grow. They weren’t kidding. I decided to  blog these photos now to show a glimpse into our first week at home with Grey, and to just simply journal this memory of him being so little.
