I had a WONDERFUL first Christmas! I got tons of toys, books, and clothes. Mom says I'm pretty much set in all of those categories until I'm one year old. Thanks to everyone for their generosity. I had a great time seeing grandma and grandpa Bryant and grandma and grandpa O'Neill again and loved meeing all of my 2nd cousins, great grandparents, and great aunts and uncles. It was also fun to meet the other puppy dogs in my life-Winston, Sophie, Robbie, and Annie. Winston was my "protector" while I stayed at grandma and grandpa Bryant's house and he didn't want to leave me alone for one second...he always had to check and see why I was crying too. I also got to meet my new friend Delia, who is only 11 days younger than me. Her Mommy and Daddy, Dave and Dawn Thompson, are friends with my Mommy and Daddy.
Mommy and Daddy got lots of great gifts too, but they say that their favorite one was the one I gave them-my first smile on Christmas Even morning. Now that I am older I also love to lay on the floor and "play" with Mommy and Daddy and they always talk about how much more interactive I am now. My wakeful periods are more frequent now and I'm sleeping great at night too. I only get Mommy up one time per night now to eat, and boy is she thankful! I have my two month appointment with the pediatrician on January 16, so it will be exciting to see how much I've grown in the past month.
