So Mom & Dad came to Nashville for several days the week before Christmas -- they helped us bake cookies, go Christmas shopping, & also babysat Anders while Todd and I went to a birthday party. As much help as they were, Todd and I still decided that next year we need to start all Christmas preparations in October so that we can have enough time to enjoy everything. This month has gone by too quickly!

Saturday night Anders and I went to Melissa's birthday party -- I was afraid Anders wasn't going to cooperate, but instead he was PERFECT and slept most of the time. What a great group of girls -- I love you Melissa!
Heather, Melissa, Jenn
Jenna, Jennifer, me

Yesterday we got Anders’ picture taken with Santa — he didn’t smile but was very interested in everything and sat in Santa’s lap happily! (Unlike the baby girl in front of us in line, who screamed until she was saved).
Anna Bright called me yesterday morning saying that she had something for Anders that he needed to get right away so we met her at the mall that afternoon and her gift and timing was PERFECT. She gave him the Santa hat right before we headed off to meet Santa! So crazy to think that this is the first of MANY more pictures with Santa...

So Anders had his 4 month check up yesterday and here are his stats:
Height -- 26 inches (84%)
Weight -- 15lbs. 8 oz (63%)
And again the doctor said that he is perfect!
So Anders has been developing so much and discovering new things -- he rolled over for the first time last week, he is enjoying tummy time MUCH more now than before, he sits up when we get him situated, he grabs for things (like my hair), and recently has decided he likes to eat his feet...
Here he is playing with his daddy...

So Anders turns 4 months old tomorrow (Monday) -- I can't believe it! On Tuesday he has his 4 month Dr. appointment and I am excited to see how long he is & how much he weighs. I am guessing 15 pounds but we'll see! Here are new pictures that I have taken the past week...I just think that Anders is SO cute but I may be biased :)

So finally getting to add pictures from Thanksgiving in GA...
When we got to Michael & Julie's house Haley wanted to show Anders her bedroom and she wanted to hold him up there. So here are them snuggling in her bed...
Being held by Uncle Michael...

This year we had SO MUCH to be thankful for -- Todd & I are both overwhelmed with the joy and love that Anders brings and we are so thankful for him. It was this time last year that I got pregnant and soon found out that we were expecting. It was so amazing to look back thru this past year and see how God has provided for us and blessed us abundantly.
We got to visit both families for Thanksgiving and our trip started off in SC (pictures from GA will come later)...
Anders hanging out with Bella...
Thanksgiving Day -- Wearing his "thankful for mommy" shirt that Haley got him...
