Our first Christmas as a family of three and Alexander is a month old!

Christmas was a very busy and tiring few days for our small family. We spent the time with our families and tried to make sure we were able to see everyone for the holidays. Alexander was able to meet a lot of his family over the course of three days and was lovingly greeted by all of his aunts, uncles and cousins over those days. Here are some pictures of Christmas:

Alexander meets Santa

Andrew and I took Alexander to see Santa last week. I'm sure a two week old baby doesn't really care too much about who Santa is to him, but in a few years I know he will look forward to going to see Santa. Alexander slept the whole time we were in line and while he was getting his picture taken. We also walked around the mall for a little while, but it was very nice to be out of the house in public as a family for the first time. Here is Alexander and Santa:

Alexander meets his family

Alexander is already two weeks old! He has had a very busy two weeks getting to know his family. We had his first doctor's appointment last week and everything looked pretty great according to the doctor. He gained thirteen ounces and is now weighing in at seven pounds and thirteen ounces. He will be back up to his birth weight before we know it. Mommy and Daddy were happy to hear that the doctor had only good news for us at his visit. Next time Daddy will even go to the doctor's with us, which will be nice since Alexander has to get his second Hep B shot.

Here is Alexander meeting some of his family:
