Evan's First Christmas

We just wrapped up a whirlwind of holiday activity for our family. First we traveled to San Antonio for Christmas with Patrick's family. We had a great time visiting with everyone. Thanks to aunt Helene and uncle Jorge for their wonderful hospitality. Here's the whole crew on Christmas.

Next, my parents came to our house for New Year's. Good thing too, since they were snowed in for Christmas anyway! We celebrated Christmas (part 2) with them and my brother and sister-in-law. Evan was actually awake to open some gifts. You can't resist taking at least one bow-on-the-baby's-head picture!

Grandma and grandpa got him a jumperoo for Christmas. He loves it!

Here's the other side of the family on New Year's Day

Ahh...our first Christmas as a family of three!

Of course we took a LOT of pictures over the holiday but these are just some of the highlights. This month Evan also had his 6 month checkup and wow, has he grown. He's up to almost 17 lbs and 27 inches long. He grew 2 inches in 2 months! That puts him at 50th percentile for weight and 80th percentile for height. We may have a tall boy on our hands.
