Leah's First Christmas

I wanted to make sure to get a short post in with this Christmas being such a special time in our lives. This was our Leah's first Christmas at the ripe age of five days old. David and I have always loved Christmas and everything it represents. And now? It holds an even more special place in our hearts. Christmas will always be a reminder of the day that changed our lives forever. The day we welcomed our baby girl into the world. 

With my due date being Christmas Eve we weren't sure if we would be celebrating Christmas at home or in the hospital. We were so happy that we ended up being home to celebrate Christmas and the birth of our daughter with our family. I thought this little outfit was perfect for our little Leah, seeing as she was the best Christmas present we could have ever hoped for. 

With Leah only being five days old we weren't able to go to Christmas Eve Service or our large family Christmas gatherings {we didn't want to have Leah around a lot of people with the flu going around}, but we did celebrate Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our immediate family, which was intimate and perfect. We had so much fun laughing by the fire, drinking hot chocolate, opening presents, and watching Christmas movies with our family and our little bundle of joy. 
It was perfect :) 

Holiday traditions started!
