Payton's First Christmas

Christmas started early this year for Payton. My family came over on the 23rd for presents and tamales (a tradition started at Mamaw's almost 50 years ago when they had tamales after church on Christmas Eve).

Early Monday morning we flew to Alabama. I was a little worried about the flight since Payton had an ear infection, but she did great! She fell asleep before we boarded and stayed asleep the entire flight! I think we have a globe trotter on our hands!!

We spent Christmas Eve with Grandma Red (MiMi's mom) and then Christmas Day with Nanny and Pa (PaPa's mom and dad). Everyone was thrilled to see Payton and I think everyone that wanted to hold her did. She handled all the people and her schedule being thrown off remarkably well.

Her cousins LOVE Baby Girl! They can't believe she's so little and every move she made, Conner told us about.

She had a great Christmas and has enough toys to last her until her birthday! I can't wait for next Christmas when she'll be walking and talking and we create our own family traditions.

I LOVE her bow! That's the only thing that makes me sad about not having a little girl! All the dresses and bows! She's just darling!
