It's been a month!

I hope everyone had good Thanksgiving. We spent the day with our friends Shawn and Debbie Chastain and their family. It's so great that they invite us into their home every year since our families go elsewhere for Thanksgiving and we can't really travel right now. The food was awesome and so was the company. I brought my camera but like always, I didn't use it so I don't have any pics. I do however have plenty of other pics so don't worry ;-) According to tradition, we decorated for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving. Jason slept most of the time so I guess that was his way of helping since it's awful difficult decorating with one hand. On that Sunday, Jason got the honor of playing Baby Jesus in our church's live nativity. I forgot my camera that night but we did get pics at the rehearsal. On the night he was wide awake and I was glad I brought his pacifier so "Joseph" could keep Jason quiet (I'm all about historical accuracy). He did good though and stole the "show" with his cuteness.

Jason turned one month old on Wednesday. It's hard to believe it's been that long. Jason has his one month well-baby visit with the doc. I can't wait to see how much he's grown. We started giving Jason a bottle of expressed breastmilk every night to give Dan that bonding experience and get Jason used to it before I return to work. He took it really well so that was a relief. I've been pumping about 3 times a day now to build up a freezer stash. I really hope to not have to supplement with formula when I go back to work. ok, here are a bunch of pics and videos.

I took a bunch of videos last night with our camera but forgot that I can't hold the camera sideways or else the video is sideways. If you can stand the neck strain the videos are pretty cute.
