From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!!

It's not even Christmas yet and we have already done so much to celebrate. The first weekend in December Conrad stayed with his MeMa and Big Pop to head to their local Christmas celebration - complete with a visit to Santa! He went down on Thursday and was initially coming back Monday but by Sunday he was ready to leave...is it bad that I was happy about this? Our big boy actually MISSED us! We definitely missed him too but it did give us some extra one on one time with Prescott.
Sean's family celebrates St. Nicolas Day and every year we get an ornament or decoration from St. Nick - and now the boys are starting to get their own collection as well! Conrad loves, loves, loves Rudolph this year so my mother in law got him the DVD and figurines. This kid is obsessed, I tell you! He is even asking Santa for an abominable snow man (uh oh, Santa's Helpers better get on it!) for Christmas this year.
We can't wait to see what Christmas brings with our family of four!

Has been wonderful! Yes, tired nights but those are expected. Conrad is adjusting better than I imagined and Prescott is (dare I say it?!) a much easier baby. Here's what we've been up to:
Meeting his future BFF - my amazing friend of 8 years had the same due date as me and had her baby exactly one hour before Prescott was born - different hospital but awesome all the same. We are excited for maternity leave and play dates together. Especially since her older son is one of Conrad's best friends too!
Family of four!
Double stroller - this having two kids thing just got real!
I braved it alone and took both boys to lunch - and they did so well!!
We are all still getting used to routines and each other but life is good!

I can't believe a month has already gone by - time is quickly ticking away and you are already so precious. We can already tell that you are a calm, sweet little man - thank goodness! We were so worried that we would have another rough go of it but you've proved us wrong. Everyday with you keeps getting better and better.
You are a solid eater and usually only fuss when you're hungry or wet. AND YOU SLEEP ALL THE TIME! We just weren't used to this since your big brother never slept so I'm constantly checking to see if you're breathing. The doctor assures me this much sleep is normal :)
You had your first Thanksgiving, Daddy's birthday, St. Nicholas Day, and now Christmas is around the corner!
We love you little Peanut!

Our hospital enlists a professional photographer whom we hired - if you are ever giving birth at an INOVA hospital I definitely recommend taking them up on this! It was only $100 and we got a disc of about 120 pictures plus several more printed out. These three are my favorite:
Prescott's original due date was Thanksgiving Day - our little turkey! When we found out our due date I immediately bought this hat on etsy.
Look at this handsome baby - love those lips!
Cutest brothers you ever did see
We have so much to be thankful for this holiday season. For now we are settling in and adjusting to being a family of four - feeling full of love and gratitude.
