Merry Christmas

I'll try to catch everyone up on the goings on of the last few weeks in the next few days.
I hope you'll forgive my silence since I'm offering an abundance of photos.

A Cox family Christmas Eve wouldn't be right with A Christmas Story. Daddy says it's the best. Mommy and grandma rolled their eyes a lot. I think I'm with Daddy.

I tried to stay up all night. I even outlasted the cats.

But I was still up early and impatient.

But Daddy managed to wrangle me.

Then we waited for my uncle BooBoo to get here.

He finally got here and Grandma held me while mommy passed the presents out.

Then we opened presents.

Did you know there is a whole book about ME?

And Santa brought it for grandma!

Then it was my turn. Mommy was still in her jammies but I just climbed in her lap and she helped me open.

I think my favorite present was this wrist rattle from Todd & Paula. It's nummy!

I got lots of books!

Uncle Bradley gave me his favorite one from when he was a boy.

Mommy even read me it to me right then.

Grandma still thought her book was the best one.

Then Daddy took me for a while while mommy to get a couple of things done. Like take pictures of us!

Then I took a little nap while Mommy, Daddy & grandma made lunch. I woke up just in time for mommy to have to rush through and then feed me again.

After lunch Grandpa took care of me while mommy took a nap. Did you know he has FUR growing out of his LIP?

The day was really great, but man was it tiring. Good night!

Santa Claus

As if quarantine doesn't suck enough, it means no pictures with Santa. We certainly can't run out to the mall surrounded by sick people and little germ factories children.

Fortunately we were blessed to be invited to a NICU graduate friendly home for pictures with Santa!

Gavin's parents (Carrie & Todd) graciously invited a bunch of the NICU babies to their home for a true milestone-our first meeting with Santa Claus!

I'm pleased to report that none of the babies cried at Santa. Though it was a room filled with preemies- there was much puke to be found.

We had a great time. It was great to catch up with everyone and to be amongst people who really get us.

A huge thank you to Gavin and his family for including us.

Without further ado- PICTURES!

Hi Santa! I was a good boy this year!

Hmm. I think Gavin must be related to Santa. Santa looks a lot like Gavin's grandpa!

If mommy leaves you cookies, will you leave me a tummy that doesn't burn?

Mommy says she was a good girl this year, too. She'd also like me to have a tummy that doesn't burn.

My first girlfriend! Elizabeth Grace & her mom Laura

I think Lola is pretty!

I'm sleepy but no way I'm going to miss a thing.

I'm just takin' it all in from the comforta of mommy's arms.

Friends rule

Wait! We've left out my two best girls. Mommy says it's because we didn't think of it in time, but I think that's a crappy excuse. I'm outta here!

Damn, they caught me and blocked me. I've got to work on that crawling thing.

Right after I eat this nummy bib
