The First Year With Babies

The Next Family

By: Heather Somaini

I’ll be honest…I don’t have much to write about our babies’ first holidays. Nothing spectacular really happened. But if you’re like me, you love the holidays. It truly starts around Halloween, winds through to Thanksgiving, peaks at Christmas and finally goes out with a bang on New Year’s. I love the smell of the holidays. I love the feeling in the air, the change of colors and the urge to shop. I love how much love there is around me. It’s the time of year when everyone puts their best foot (or heart) forward. I like people best then. I love a little more. I try to argue a little less. Hopefully, I’m successful!

What I do have for you are some really fun pictures from our first holidays with the twins. For Halloween, Tere had to have two different costumes for them. One was for their Mommy and Me class (as Hershey’s Kisses) and the other was for actually going out trick or treating. Now we all know there’s no real trick or treating with 7-month-olds, but they sure did look cute as a bumble bee and a lady bug.

We spent Thanksgiving here in Los Angeles and got a jump on the “take your kids’ picture with Santa” thing.  As you can see, sitting with Santa is a little awkward for little ones.  Free even lost his shoe.

We also got these awesome shots of the kids in Santa hats…

My favorite pictures from that Christmas though are of the twins with their great-grandmother.  She adored their little faces and wanted nothing more than to just hold them as often as she could.

And here’s one last one of the kids in their holiday finest.  No mom can resist the temptation to dress their babies or kids up during the holidays!!
