Three Months Old!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. It's surprising how little I seem to get done in such a large amount of time. Ah well. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We didn't bring our camera with us to Utah for Christmas, so the following still shots are from my dad. This is one from Scott's baby blessing. Thanks to Cort and Tammi for the outfit--it was very cute. I think my face says it all in this photo. This was a stressful event for me. My niece was baptized at 6pm, and then Scott, and my other niece, Elizabeth, were blessed afterward. I was the chorister at the baptism and I was doing a musical number with my sisters for which we did not practice even once. Well, I missed the opening song because I was feeding Scott. He did pretty well for most of the baptism--happy in Aunt Hannah's arms. I tried so hard to make sure Scott would be happy during his blessing so he wouldn't cry. He is usually such a good baby--all smiles--except when he's either really hungry or tired. Well, by the time the baptism was over, he was fussy because he was tired, and he got freaked out when he saw all of those men in the circle looking down at him. Oh well. The ordinance was still performed and that's what matters. And I was glad that most of Matt's family and almost everyone from my family was there. You just can't have everything, I suppose.

This is how I spent most of Christmas break--talking to Scott. His shirt says, "Mommy's little deer" and it has a reindeer on it. Cute, eh?

These were Scott's Christmas Eve pajamas from Aunt Maurine. They were very slimming :)

Here's a video! Matt and I used our American Express points to purchase a Flip Video Camera. That is part of the reason we didn't take the regular camera with us. We are not used to being specific about cameras when we're packing... Oh well. Luckily, there were other cameras at Christmas, and we aren't completely without visual documentation of Scott's first Christmas.
This is exciting because Scott can hold his head up really well now and it's fun to watch him bobble :) He does smile and "talk" to us a lot, too, but he usually gets very distracted by the camera, so it's harder to catch that.

Hope you had a great Christmas and that your New Year will be full of love and laughter.
