Embry: 11-12 Weeks and The Holidays

Eleven Weeks

Embry and I returned from a week in Austin at the start of her 11th week. Work on our house was still not complete so we spent the majority of the week confined to our bedroom. A few of the days we ran some errands to get out of the house, but for the most part we were at home.

Lounging on Mom and Dad's bed

We escaped the house to have lunch with Daddy!

Confinement doesn't bother Embry!

One day it got up to 80 degrees! Embry tried
sitting in her big girl stroller for the first time
and LOVED it!

Still not the biggest fan of tummy time.

Twelve Weeks

We spent our Christmas break in Austin and had a wonderful time with family and friends. We spent a few nights with the Embrys, a few nights with the Fannings and a few nights with both families at the Fanning Lake House. Here are pictures from our time in Austin.

Christmas With The Embrys

This year we celebrated Christmas with Jacob's immediate family on December 23. It worked out perfectly since on Christmas Eve we get together with his extended family and usually have to rush gifts with each other. This year we got to enjoy a whole evening as a family and we had a blast playing games, eating a wonderful meal and being spoiled with gifts!

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve we woke up at the Embrys house and spent the first half of the day there. We got together with Jacob's grandparents, uncle and cousins and had a great time. We then went over to hang with the Fannings where we opened a few gifts and had a great steak and seafood meal.

Christmas Day

Christmas Morning we woke up at the Fanning's house where we were spoiled once again. We spent the first half of the day opening gifts, relaxing in our PJs. The second half we headed back over to the Embry's house where we spent most of the day visiting with their friends.

Not sure what was going on, but I love this picture!
