Christmas was pretty awesome. The weekend before Christmas, we had the Lawrence get together which was nice. There are lots of kids now on that side so it was full of Christmas cuteness. Christmas Eve we went to Justin's Mom's house, then my parents. The food was great. Have I mentioned my kids are just a little bit spoiled? Gabe was pretty into the wrapping paper and being the center of attention. The kids got some clothes and toys. Gabe's Playschool basketball hoop is the favorite so far (also a good toy to coax him into doing some physical therapy without knowing he's doing it). The big gifts were a zoo and museum center pass. Thanks everyone!
Christmas Day was full of extended family. It was nice to introduce everyone to Alyssa. Her Christmas dress was pretty awesome. Alyssa is still waking up at night every 2-3 hours. She's starting to drink larger volumes from her bottle, so hopefully they will start to be spaced out more. She still breathes loud when she drinks her bottle, but is in no distress. Gabe continues to call her "fussy baby" all the time. She is having more wakefull periods and I've gotten a smile here and there. I go back to work in 4 weeks so we're trying to start a bedtime routine with her....we'll see how that works out.
