so i have given a lot of thought to our family traditions at christmas and which ones i would like to start with my own little family. We had a tradition growing up where we would get all our gifts together and take a picture so that every year we remember what we got. i decided to do the same for my little sydney.

christmas cards

merry christmas everyone! this has been a bit different holiday season at the colberts. with our new addition there has not been a lot of time for shopping, wrapping and the usual holiday stuff. but there is one thing that we do every year no matter how hectic the season gets....christmas cards! i love christmas cards. i love getting them, reading them and i love mailing ours out to everyone too. every year i pull out the shoe box full of cards from years past and sit down and read all of them again. i could do without most of the commercial holiday stuff...but not the christmas cards from our friends and family!


4 week old!

wow time flies! our little sydney is already 4 weeks old. where do i start...we love her more than words can express and we are so happy she is in our life. new momma is a little tired but sydney is sleeping 5 hours at a time a night and from what i hear we are lucky. i cant believe that she is already holding her little head up. she is such a good baby. the dogs like to smell her and snuggle up to her when she is on the couch. oscar always tries to curl up in her boppy because it is just the right size for him too. the little teddy bear outfit that she is wearing was something that her daddy picked out especially for her and she loves it because it keeps her nice and toasty!

i want to add a special thanks to our family and friends. we are so thankful for all the warm wishes, nice dinners, the baby showers, and all the gifts that we received! thank you! thank you! thank you! we are so greatful for our wonderful friends and family!
