Mack's first REAL christmas!

Last year mackennon had is first Christmas, but it was hooked up to oxygen at st marks nicu. so this year me and Cory decided to call this his frosty Christmas! this time was right during a big growth spurt so lots of sleeping!! we woke him up at 7 to do our little family Christmas which he was NOT a fan of! ( he woke up during that time at 930 when i woke him up) but one gift he gave himself that day was his first tooth!!! i didn't even know he was teething! he was never super fussy or snotty or poopy or drooly!!! we found out when he was taking a drink from a glass cup and we heard a *Ting Ting when he bit the cup!!!! that night we had a great night with him not waking up once to even fuss or sleep crawl!! but as for Santa he did get a good amount of gifts! but he just loved the paper the most and pulling ornaments off the tree and chewing on them. me and Cory felt this was one of the best Christmas we have spent together! yes we know and think Christ is the center of Christmas BUT this year through the Dave Ramsey financial peace university we had saved and put aside a nice amount of money for Christmas and we were able to buy more then 2 gifts! i got my beloved toms shoes and LOTS of boot socks! Cory got some nice clothes and his very wanted hunting back pack and walkie talkies! this Christmas felt so complete since we had mackennon home with us and we were able to start our own family traditions! sadly i don't think we got any pictures of Christmas!! it was a very busy few days and we missed some important pictures!!!

guess who is one!!

finally got into his cake

thank you aunt lisa for the cake

found his pumpkin

a year ago he wore this outfit... its amazing to see how much he's grown

So its time, i now have a toddler not a baby! and because i wanted him to grow up he did it all in a week! so i have learned he is very very cautious and it took him 11 months 3 weeks and 4 days before he turned 1 to start crawling! but once he got it he got it! he is very busy "crab" crawling around the house. it has been nice having him be more mobile so i can leave his sight and the world hasn't come to an end! BUT it has also been great cardio work out for me! i chase him all day and LOVE when he finally sleeps! But we have also found we have a "sleep crawler" many time we hear him fussing so we go in to check on him and he is crawling around in his crib asleep or he has sat himself up and is confused on what is going on! very very busy boy! but this year he got 2 birthday parties! because of how close his birthday is to Christmas i decided to have only family parties. The Hanson party we did on the 4. because my nephews are so busy with basketball and being 16 we combined Sunday dinner, gingerbread, and birthday all in one night! mack loved his cake once i let him know it was okay to get dirty. it took 3 days to get the blue frosting out of his nose!! then we had the tueller party on his actual birthday the 18! that night was kinda rough for him until he got ice cream and cake! still took him a minute to be okay with the dirty hands. the kid got lots of books and clothes which he has grown out of 90% of them!

Its hard to think that my little man went from 5lbs 5 oz preemie in the nicu to a tall skinny healthy boy! we also got his one year pictures taken and i will add them later!
