This year, we spent Christmas at our house with just the 4 of us. It was so much fun spending the time together and doing all the fun things on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day that we used to do with our parents. We even started some traditions of our own. Emma and I baked cookies for Santa and decorated them. She got a special plate from Honey that has a spot to leave a note for Santa right on the cookie plate! Thanks, Honey. Then, all of us went to a movie together. We watched Alvin and the Chipmunks. Finally, we made it home to open presents. Emma had fun and Hannah wasn't quite sure what to think about all of it. Then, we read the Polar Express, I Love You Forever, and the First Christmas. We did lots of talking to Emma on the real meaning of Christmas. It was off to bed after that! The next morning, Santa left LOTS of presents for the girls and they had a blast opening them and playing all day. We had a wonderful time together and can't wait to continue our "Williamson Family Traditions" next year.

9 Months

On December 21st, Hannah had her 9 month check up. I was busy with work trying to get all the stores instock for the holidays, so Travis took her to see Dr. Lovell. She did great is and progressing well. However, Travis was upset, because she had to get her follow-up flu shot!
:( No fun!

Hannah is 9 months old, weighs 18lbs 10 ozs, and is 29 3/4 inches longs. She is taller than 50% of 14 month old girls! She is pulling up and trying to walk around things. She is still not crawling and Dr. Lovell said she may skip that altogether. Hannah is talking alot and starting to make more words. She is saying Bye Bye, Hi, Ni Ni (night night), Ma ma, Daddy (no more da da), Ba ba (for bottle) and working on Go, but it comes out more like Doe! Hannah can cover her face and play peek a boo. She LOVES to chase Emma around the couch and play their version of Hide 'n Seek. She is eating 8 ozs every 4 hours, baby food at every meal. We are working on table food, but since she has had so many stomach problems, I am super cautious! She is still sleeping well. Overall, Dr. Lovell said her cognative skills are very advanced and her motor skills are right on track.

Dress Up and Pajama Day

The pretty princess
Hannah...the rapper!?
Pajama Day!!!

The week before Christmas, Emma's preschool had lots of fun activities. We were very busy that week as well. One night at home, Emma played dress up. While I was helping her get dressed, Travis decided that he and Hannah would get in on the fun as well. That next day was pajama day. All the kids dressed in their PJs and brought their sleeping bags. They played slumber party games, watched movies and had their Christmas party. Emma had so much fun! I thought I would share a few pictures from those two days with everyone. ENJOY!

Come on, girls. Pay attention!

We have been so busy this year that I have not had a chance to send out Christmas cards. And, since it is just 6 days before Christmas, I think we are going to just skip it this year. But, I do want to share these pictures of the girls in front of the tree. Everyone have a Merry Christmas and safe travels!

Coleman's Christmas Program

Last week, Emma had a Christmas Program at her school. She did so well! Of course, being her mother's child, she sang LOUD and PROUD! She even had a small part with a few other kids during Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. She was so cute and excited that Mommy, Daddy, and Hannah were there.

Pulling up

A few weekends ago, Hannah was down for a nap and I was cleaning the kitchen. I heard her back in her room playing around, so I finished what I was doing before going to get her. When I got back there, much to my surprise, she was standing up in her crib! I ran out, hoping she would stay that way, and grabbed my camera! I was so excited. She is getting sooooo big!

She's a Star!


Last Tuesday, Emma was in a commercial! She was asked with two other kids from her daycare to be in a regional commercial to promote the preschool. She came home and was super excited. All she talked about what wearing her red shirt and sparkly red shoes. So, that's what she wore. I haven't seen the commercial yet, but I heard she did wonderful. Emma keeps saying "I am a movie star, Mommy!" Hopefully, we will get a copy soon to share with the family. We are so proud of her!
