Two Month Birthday!!


I can't believe that our little buddy is two months old already! He is getting so big. We are taking bets at how much he'll weigh on his two month appointment, which is set for January 9th! He is smiling and giggling so much now, and really is starting to love his toys and looking at bright, colorful things. It is so fun to watch him entertain himself!! He has recently found his hands and loves to play with them. We put him in his Chipmunk shirt because he is constantly making a little chipmunk giggling sound. We love you Abe!

Christmas with the Carlile's


We had a great Christmas here in North Carolina. Christmas Eve, however, wasn't as fun. I had procastinated Christmas PJs a little and in my haste Abe's and Ken's were both too small. They wore them for pictures and then had to take them off. I gues I should get on the ball and give myself some more time next year. On Christmas day, Abraham let us sleep in until 8:00 or so and then we opened presents. We had a lot of fun, especially when I opened my Nurf gun and Ken pulled one hiding from behind his back. We had a great Nurf fight until Abe got hit in the eye (A Christmas story? "You're gonna shoot your eye out!"). We spent our day relaxing and had the missionaries over for dinner and games later in the afternoon. Even though we missed being with our families we had a fun day together.

Merry Christmas!!


We were so happy when Daddy caught Abe's smile on camera. We thought he was too young to understand Christmas...but someone is clearly excited for Santa!
We are spending Abraham's first Christmas by ourselves here in North Carolina. A few weeks ago we learned we needed a new furnace and air conditioner, so Santa came early and brought Kim an air conditioner and Ken a furnace. Not too glamorous, but we are happy with it!

Last Thursday, December 13th was Ken's birthday! He got some great gifts and right in the middle of his birthday dinner, Abe gave him the kind of present he gives best...the kind he leaves in his diaper!

A Baby Blessing


On Sunday, December 2 we gave Abraham his baby blessing. Ken's parents were able to come out and be here, along with my sister Tami and her family and a few close friends. Ken's sister Kristy sent us the cute, white tuxedo that he is wearing and he just looked so adorable. It was a beautiful day and one we will always remember.
