Ugh I have been dreading this post... I'm going to keep everything super simple because I have so much catching up to do!
Baby's first Christmas! He has become such a little explorer and loooved the Christmas tree! And look at our big boy sitting up all by himself :) He was tearing apart all of our presents that weren't his, but it was just too cute to tell him no!
Christmas morning. The picture of Winston and Jack cracks me up! They sure have their game faces on! We only ended up buying Jack one present because we KNEW he would get millions of presents from all of our family. Besides, he had no idea! haha
We went to my Mother's house first and there was soo many presents! The best ones were the surprise trip to visit us in January and also to go to Disneyland in April!! There were definitely tears shed over these two exciting trips :)
(Isn't he so cute in his Christmas outfit? and his sweet little Mohawk :)
The pictures started to get skimpier as our day went on. We went to Mimi's house (Steve's grandma) next. Jack looked so cute with his sweet cousin Lexi. There was once again loads of presents to open, our families sure love us!
Jack's new favorite thing is to eat everything! So of course the wrapping paper was his favorite part of the day. haha he loved helping open up presents! We wen't to my Grandpa and Grandma Taylor's house to end the night and I only ended up getting a picture of him with my Dad and his new wife Connie!
And that was our Christmas! We had such a fun time! That was the last time seeing the majority of our family before we moved, so it was also just a little bit of a sad day... But overall we had a good time!
Then this happened.
It was a whirlwind of a week starting with Christmas eve, and ending in San Diego! I still cant believe we did it all in one week. But here we are! and we couldn't be any happier!
And this is what I came home to from the airport.
I had never even seen the apartment and this was my first look! Yikes!
(yes that is our couch in the middle of the room. It now sits under that heater on the wall. haha)
We decided to spend New Year's Eve at the San Diego Zoo! Not bad weather for someone who just came from the snow and ice...
We also visited the beach and it was Winston's first time there. This picture doesn't do it justice, there were actually a million dogs there and he is chasing after one of them in this pic. This was a dog beach on Coronado island. We had a great time and he was in doggie Disneyland!
Speaking of Disneyland...
We got season passes! we went before Steve started school and it was actually sad to just leave it after one day. I guess we have to get used to that now that we are locals!
I couldn't help but share these pictures of a random night we had. I love Jack's cute hair! He is seriously getting so big. Turning 7 months means big things for this little guy! Like eating more solid food (and loving everything he eats I might add!) He now sits up and plays all by himself. He is talking up a storm! He still doesn't make any clear words except for dada. No mama yet :( But we will work on that one!
Lastly is a random things collage. He LOVES making that ooo face in the top left. He does it all the time! Which is funny because I have a whole bunch of pictures from when I was a baby making that same face, so you know where he gets it! Steve thought it would be funny to put the dog in Jack's bed... I didn't think it was that funny... The next pics is one of the last times Jack and cousin Lexi got to play before we moved! And as we were packing up we found a Halloween costume we bought for him before he was born and he actually never wore it, so we had to try it on! Its funny to see him wearing sweaters here because then we quickly change to warmer weather clothing when we move! The last pic was of him taking up the seat next to me on the plane to move down here. It was our last glimpse of Utah!
We are so sad to have left Utah, but we know we'll be back soon enough! And hey, we live in San Diego for crying out loud. We might love it here way too much to come back! haha so come down and visit us! We would love to be your tour guides :)
