Not so close, Santa

Presley's Friend, Luke, got a special visit at his house today from Santa! It was the cutest party! Presley and all her little friends got to meet Santa together for their first Christmas. Here's a recap of what Presley thought...
Kind of intrigued at first
Then quickly scared and not happy
We tried mommy holding her...
Then again, Santa one-on-one...
Then, sneaking Santa up behind us. Seemed to work the best.
Here's all the moms and babies. Presley kept turning around in this picture any time she heard Santa speak, just making sure he wasn't getting TOO close again.
We even tried to take her picture in Santa's chair with her friend, Madee...NOPE!

Poor baby... what a traumatic day for her!

Seriously, Presley's schedule is WAY busier than mommy and daddy's social calendar. Our little one is quite the social butterfly. She has 5 Christmas parties (between this week and last week). Today, we had a lunch playdate with her BFF, Mia. It's so cute cause you can tell the girls recognize each other now. Mia is 9 months old and we have so much fun spending time with her and mommy, Ashley.
Here's Presley, Mia and their friend, Gavin. He's precious and just a little younger than the girls.
Presley is almost 8 months old. It is so hard to believe how grown up she is already! She is starting to pull up on things to stand and getting close to crawling. She's such a happy baby. She definitely talks in her sleep (like her mom) and she just noticed she can see herself in the spout in the bathtub. She now talks to herself when looking at the's hilarious! We are really excited about her first Christmas.
She loves sitting on Cameron's shoulders- although the other day she was licking his head while she was up there. We are excited to see everyone next week for Christmas! Hope everyone has a good Christmas and safe travels!

Busy Busy

Presley is now 7.5 months!! I cannot believe how fast she is growing up. She eats 2 "meals" a day. Her favorites are apples, pears, sweet potatoes and carrots. She LOVES her oatmeal and rice cereal, too. She loves to play all day. Her favorite toys right now are a truck, her nativity scene (particularly the sheep and Mary) and her xylophone. She makes us laugh every day. She's such a good baby and I have loved staying home and playing with her every day. She hasn't started crawling yet, but she can scoot backwards like a champ. She just rolls right now across the floor if she needs to get to a certain toy.

We went to Killeen this week to see Libby and Baby Parker. Presley did GREAT in the car... I think 2.5 hours is going to be the longest she an commute. She was just starting to fuss as we pulled into Killeen. She hadn't seen Cameron since Tuesday, so when we saw him Friday afternoon, Presley just lit up and started squealing. It was so cute to see how excited she was to see him.

Emily, Nick and Liam are officially Texans! We went over yesterday to play with Cousin Liam. Presley LOVED his crazy coupe! She was supposed to get one for her birthday, but she may get an early present.
Here she is reading a book Cameron's grandmother sent... she is starting to really enjoy reading. Her favorite book is a book of colors. The red bird is her Favorite- we sit on that page and she touches his fur for hours.

We could listen to her laugh all day long!
