The Wilbanks clan came up to chilly Chicago in mid-December to celebrate the season a little early. We had such a ball doing fun holiday things in the city and just being together.
We spent Christmas at home, just the three of us. It was very low-key (although I'd never use the words 'relaxing' or 'quiet' with a 2 month old around!) and so nice to have our first Christmas together as a family.
The best gift of all...
Then we decided at the last minute to get out of the sub-zero weather and head south...we spent the week between Christmas and New Years in Florida, both in St Pete and Orlando. Although we learned quickly that travelling with a little one is MUCH different and a bit of a challenge, we so enjoyed spending time with our families and getting a little 'adult' time together.
Pablo and I used to be such frequent travelers, we had it down to a science. Ha...as noted, travelling with a baby is very different...
Jackson loves time with his Papa D
Kissy party with cousin Kennedy and Aunt Leslie
Family walk in the park in December..novel concept for us Chicagoans
Off to Orlando...
We took a walk in the 80 degree weather...heaven. The stroller usually lulls our boy right to sleep, but I think he was so confused by the warm sunshine, he stayed awake and looked around the whole time.
Time to open LOTS of presents from Grandma, Grandpa Walter and Uncle Carlos
So happy with Grandma...
We had a wonderful trip, but were also happy to be home just in time for Jackson's 3 month birthday, which also happened to be the day of the National Championship game...GO GATORS!!
And just a few days before his 3 month birthday, he surprised us (and himself) by rolling over! Oh, and we had an unplanned trip to the pediatrician, so we got his weight...a whopping 13lbs 5oz! We are loving life with our chunky boy :)
