Christmas Eve surprise visitors

You got to practice for Christmas a little early.  Your cousin Jessie and his Fiance came by with a bunch of presents for you!  It didn't take long for you to get the hang of ripping open packages. 
 This little drum set became a favorite if yours.  You played with this a lot.
What a pleasant surprise for your first Christmas Eve!

My big boy chair!

Thank you Mrs. Kristin for my big boy chair.  Kristin is the photographer that took the pictures of Mommy and Daddy when we were pregnant with you and your adorable newborn photos.  She has a son named Aiden as well.  And guess what?  He was 9 lbs 8 oz when he was born too!  So she gave us this special chair that was her sons and has your name on it.

Look at you taking charge of the remote already!

Meeting Santa and the Mrs!

There was a lovely holiday party held at the Bells house.  We were all surprised when there was a knock at the door and guess who was there!?  SANTA!!  He came with gifts for all the kids as well as a few for you!  Since you had already been around a few strange characters at fair, Santa didn't seem to scare you much.  You even took a few tugs at his beard ;-)!
 Kisses from Santa and the Mrs
Santa's jingle bells really caught your eye
 "Is that a real beard Santa?"
 Yes, your mother put you in an outfit with a Santa on the butt!
Opening presents from Santa
Even Mommy and Daddy got to sit on Santa's lap

Pictures from your first Renn Fair season.

Everyone kept asking if we were going to put you in Renn Garb.  I thought this was a good way to solve that problem.

No thats not daddy!  This is Mr. Rob.

Grandma loves Fair too!

This is a special picture.  This was taken the weekend of our 2 year wedding anniversary.  It was this Fair Saturday 2 years ago that your father and I got married at the Renaissance Fair at the chapel.  Now you have joined our family.

Your first trip to Gettysburg

Daddy decided to take a day off work to take you and mommy to Gettysburg for the day.  This was my first time there as well.  The weather was great for an October afternoon.  We enjoyed lunch at a nice little Irish restaurant and walked several of the battlefields and downtown.

P.S.  You cried the whole way home!  Yup all 1 and a half hours!  You for some reason HATE the car.

Your first photo shoot

I am sure you will probably hate me for some of these photos!  You were just such an adorable little man.  I wanted to make sure to get some fun photos of you while you were still in that sleep all the time state.  These pictures were taken when you were just about three weeks old.  I love the little lion and owl pictures of you.  Surprisingly, you were not bothered by all the little costume changes.  These amazing photos were done by photographer Kristin Mowery of Sweet Splendor Photography.  She is the same photographer that did mommy's belly photo's when I was pregnant with you.
