Simon's First Christmas

We had an amazing first Christmas with our little angel. Of course he didn't really know what was going on and was more excited to play with the wrapping paper (actually eating it) than his presents. Next year will be really amazing since he will have a better idea of what is happening.

The cousins playing nicely together.......

.......just a few seconds later

It was an amazing holiday. We feel so blessed to have loving family and friends. And of course we had the best gift of Simon!

A boy and his cat

From the minute he came home, Simon and Zoe were fast friends. In the early days, he had no idea she was around. She loved to walk up and sniff him or lay on top of me while I held Simon. She would even stand guard of his stuff (see her under the swing and in his pack and play).
As Simon got older and started to notice her he would get more and more excited. These days he squeals with delight when he sees her. I can actually tell when he is looking at her even if my back is to him because his voice has a different high pitch sound when she is around.
They are so cute together and it should be fun to see what happens once Simon starts crawling after her.

Winter Baby

Gearing up for a walk in the neighborhood......or he might have been asleep at this point already (the shades make it hard to tell)

Simon is 6 Months Old!

Dear Simon,
Happy half birthday! This month was very exciting for you.

Popo came to visit from Aspen. We had a really nice walk around the neighborhood and you played so cute with him. When he comes back to visit in a few months, I bet you'll be crawling.

You went on your first plane ride this month too. We flew to Ft Myers and then drove to Sanibel Island. You were such a good boy on the plane. All you wanted to do was look around and smile at people. When we walked up the isle you cooed at everyone and made lots of friends.

You loved swimming in the pool! Especially when there were other kids around to watch. You love watching kids and smiling at them

When we went to the beach there were a lot of birds around. You could not decide what you liked more, watching the waves come in or seeing the birds fly around.

While we were on our trip you started sticking out your tongue all the time. Your still doing it now that we are home and it is adorable!

And of course after all of that swimming and playing you needed your rest

As each day goes by you get cuter and cuter. This month you started to look more like a little boy than a baby. It makes us so happy to see the little character you are turning into.

I love you more everyday and feel so lucky to have such a wonderful baby like you!

Love Always,
