Christmas Comparison

I guess since we are no longer celebrating Lyla's "First" Holidays, I'm real into comparing last year to this year. I'm just continually blown away by how fast Lyla is growing!! So, here's another little blast into the past...

Christmas 2009:
Just a wee little 3 month old!

And, now, Christmas 2010 so far:
Christmas shopping with Mommy in her cute hat that Mrs. Jyme knit her:
Showing off her Santa slippers that she is obsessed with.
She even wants to wear them over her footed PJ's and brings them to me during the day to wear around the house:
These were taken last night when we were getting ready to visit Santa.
Why does she look 3 years old??

As you can tell, she was SO excited to see Santa!!! We talked about it all day long. I showed her the picture with Santa from last year over and over, and she kept giggling with excitement and saying "santa". She even giggled with joy as we waited in line.

However, when the awaited moment arrived, our little Santa Baby was NOT so thrilled:


  1. Mindy, she is such a doll!!!! ALMOST enough to make me want to have one more and try for a girl...ALMOST!

  2. i still can't get over how precious she is!!! that picture with Santa is CLASSIC!! :)

  3. That is so funny about Santa. Peyton has the same picture this year, although she wouldn't even get on his lap. Last year she was great as well. :) Maybe next year they'll surprise us. :) Merry Christmas to your sweet family!

  4. Mindy, I'm dying over how cute she is!!! Those dimples, oh my goodness! Love her sweet outfit, too. She's looking more and more like her mommy, for sure!
