Can you believe December is finally here? It is time to get in the spirit of the holidays and to celebrate this wonderful month with our family and loved ones.
We started the holiday preparations very early by putting our tree up last month. We usually wait until December but knowing that baby #2’s due date is in early December (any minute now!) I had to get the the tree done before his arrival.
This year was the first year that I had a little helper that was very eager to help and that was actually a big help decorating. In the past he was known for taking the decorations down immediately after they were set up and using them as toys but he now understands how decorating works! It was a lot of fun to see how excited he was and he loved the tree once we were done.
We are now all set and I am really looking forward to spending the holidays with our growing family and our new little bundle of joy!

We watched “The Little Mermaid” movie not long ago so I am excited to watch part 2 with my little one. We usually prepare for a fun movie with some movie themed snacks and this time I am getting some fishy crackers and cutting some fruit into some underwater related shapes. Super easy and he loves when we do that. He is very excited to watch this movie and we can’t wait!
