Christmas 2012

Something happens when you have a child. Christmas transforms into this even more magical time of year. You cherish every moment.

As per the norm, we drove up to New Jersey to spend Christmas with my Mom, Dad, and sister. I was a little nervous about how Elliot would do during the long car ride, but he did surprisingly well. He only really started to fuss during the last hour, which was great considering we were on the road for a total of 8 hours.

Christmas Eve dinner consisted of traditional Ukrainian food, and of course my Mom knocked it out of the park! So so good. Elliot enjoyed his first tastes as well! My Aunt Jane, Uncle Artie and cousin, AJ, joined in on the feast… it was so nice to be together as a family again.

Christmas Day started with gifts, and I had so much fun watching Elliot play with the wrapping paper. I could tell he wasn’t too sure about what was going on (he gets very quiet and serious when he’s processing things), but he had a good time.

I love my family. I’m so thankful for everything. Happy 2013!

  1. You’re so brave for taking an 8 hour car ride with your baby! Road trips with a baby can be difficult, arguably more difficult then plane trips. It’s heart-breaking when the baby starts to cry and you have to decide between stopping the car to take the baby out of the car seat and comfort him/her or to just keep driving.
    I love your pictures!

  2. Trust me, I was SO nervous about it! I think it helped that we just got a convertible car seat too, which I am imagine is more comfortable then his infant car seat. :]
