Kaiser Holiday Fun






We decided to spend Hanukkah at the McGee household and Christmas with the Kaisers. This would be Brooks' first year to celebrate and of course he made out great with presents!!! Unfortunately, he slept through the Hanukkah gift giving because it was at night so Alex and I opened all his gifts. He brought home some great books, stuffed animals, a Chanukah bib and stuffed dreidle that plays music and some other toys.

He also experienced his first Christmas with his grandparents, Uncle Bret and cousin Madison. Aunt Wilma made him his first winter hat and cousin Madison gave him a talking snowman and his first guitar! He is starting to become a musical stud early so he can get the chicks later on :o)

New Friends




We finally got together with our friends, Emilie and Florian Delaplace, and their son Mael. Mael is almost 6 months old and we hope he and Brooks become life long pals! Brooks and Mael hit it off immediately. They just stared at each other and Mael tugged on Brooksie's shirt a few times. It was pretty darn cute. Maybe later down the road, Mael can teach Brooks how to speak French so he can pick up on the ladies!!!

We all hung out at our house for a little while before our visit with Santa and then out for some delicious Thai food and yogurt. It was a fun night!

Picture with Santa


We took Brooks to visit Santa on a VERY cold and windy night this past weekend. There is a nice man in Coppell who decorates the front of his house with lights and a sleigh, dresses up as Santa and lets families bring their kids over to take pictures with him. Brooks has no idea what is going on of course but he sure looks cute!

Our Family


We went to Nana and Poppy's house for dinner the other night and took some pictures with Nana's new camera.

Singing the ABC's

Brooks was a little fussy this morning so we decided to sing our ABC's with Mr. Elephant. He was fascinated. So was little Nellie! She joined in the fun! video

I love to KICK!!!

Brooks' new favorite place is his changing pad b/c he can kick and kick his little legs. He is so happy there. He has also found his hand which is really cute. He forms his right-hand fingers into the sign language sign for 'T' and then follows it until it goes out of his sight. It is pretty amusing! video

Growing Like A Weed





Brooks turns 10 weeks old on Thursday, 12/13 and he is just growing like a weed. He is still pretty small (tall and skinny like his daddy) and changing all the time. He smiles constantly and has a lot to say.

He finally likes to take baths. We sing songs while we wash and he loves the hot water over his little nakie body. Sometimes he hangs his leg over the side of the tub sling and puts his toes into the water. It is really adorable!
