I can’t believe I’m about to start having baby’s firsts again! This baby won’t have her first Christmas til she’s 11 months old! 8 years ago I had my first Baby’s First Christmas with Buddy. He was really the easiest, happiest baby. He loved playing with his Sarah dog; throwing that ball and watching the dog get it always made him giggle. He was actually 7 months on his first Christmas since he’s a May baby. It’s a little more fun at that age because they’re interactive and slightly easier to shop for. We stayed home that Christmas as a family of three and traveled later to Chicago to visit the family. He got a lot of books, a Build a Bear, and a Roll Around Balls Treehouse which was played with for years. I can’t believe that little guy will be 9 in a few months. I look forward to Baby’s First Christmas next year with this little kicker in my belly.
We were far from family when we had Buddy. We lived in Orlando and family was in Chicago. Support was something I needed, so one of the things I did was make sure I joined a “mom’s group” so that I could find people with babies similar age to mine. Almost 9 years later and I still keep in touch with these women, many of them have become bloggers themselves! It helped immensely, to be able to ask questions about babyhood to them and now to see their babies grow up.
