This Christmas is going to be Baby Brycey's first Christmas (he missed last years by 4 days). It is fun having him be so old for his first Christmas. To some little baby extent it is like he knows what is going on and seems just as excited for Christmas as the kids. He loves "singing along" when we sing Christmas songs, he loves Christmas lights, and he love the Christmas tree.
Just before Thanksgiving we got out all our Christmas decorations. We started Decorating while Bryce was down for a nap. When he woke up and I brought him down stairs he said yeah and started clapping when he saw the newly decorated family room.
Right away he wanted to "help."
As you can imagine he was very helpful. He has been pretty good about the tree. Several times I have found him under the tree with a strand of popcorn or a cookie in his mouth, but he is very soft with it and has yet to pull it over. After we first put the tree up I had to rescue him a few times because he would put his head down and crawl under it and then get stuck. But he learned his lesson after a while. I guess he thought there would be a really great view of the lights from under there.
Emma was a big help decorating this year. She took it upon herself to over see the placement of each ornament as we put them on the tree.
