[Hunter opening his stocking]
Next we tackled opening our presents, and Hunter actually helped open his own gifts!
All in all the night was fantastic and Hunter was not shy with anyone. He even went into the arms of someone he had never met before without fussing. He did suffer with some gas near the end of the night, but nothing a bit of gripe water didn't eventually fix. (10 minutes later....)
I was honestly afraid that Hunter would not sleep last night, but I am guessing all the stimulation tuckered him out. He went down at 1:30 am and slept until 7:45 am. Now me on the other hand, I went to bed at 4:00 am and didn't really exit my bed until 7:00 pm. (Of course I was up at 7:45 am to feed and change Hunter, but we all promptly went back to sleep.) I was able to catch a bit of a needed sleep during the rest of the day, and Grandma took up the slack, letting me get some much needed rest. I feel great now that I was able to get some "real" uninterrupted sleep.
And so it goes, yesterday we closed another chapter to this story - Hunter's first Christmas. It was wonderful and memorable. And he made it so sweet for all of us. Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful things given to Hunter on his first Christmas.
