Five 1/2 Months

I've decided to break this month into 2 parts--the run-up to Christmas in the UK and then a separate post (in January) for Christmas in the States. I didn't really get pics of Thanksgiving or my birthday--we hosted a nice dinner at home for Thanksgiving and we celebrated my 30th down at the Alp Chalet in the Christkindlmarkt (I think on both occasions we were too busy talking with friends and playing with George to take pictures!)

Enjoying the Otley Victorian Fayre

George's little Christmas pudding hat got a lot of smiles & comments

Last Friday we did a little bit of Christmas shopping downtown and got lunch at Five Guys

He's so smiley! I love how he raises his eyebrows!

We went to the Christkindlmarkt for our traditional "XXL Bratwurst", hot honey mead & crepes

We've been going to La Leche League meetings for the past 3 months--it's lovely to meet other moms and George is starting to take more of an interest in the toys and other babies. These shots were taken at the last meeting before Christmas--I was glad to get some nice candid pics of the two of us!

We're still spending a lot of time at Grandad's house--George loves his bouncer!

Our Christmas Tree

Family name ornaments

Last year's keepsake ornament

George's present from Grandmere--so fun to have a train under the tree, feels very traditional!

Getting ready for church

The biggest "first" this month has been starting solids

George loves sweet potatoes!

He's very grabby these days and always tries to get the spoon off me

Cute little space bib made by Aunt Kelly!

So sweet when he sleeps...

Let's hope for some of this action on tomorrow's flight!
