Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a magical festive period. This year is Baby Jasper’s first Christmas (exciting!), so I wanted to share some of his day.
Throughout December I had visions of taking Jasper to do lots of festive activities and getting loads of cute photos. But in between a bad cold and a sickness bug that took down both myself and James within 6 hours of each other (how?!), we didn’t do all the activities I had planned although it probably would have been too much anyway. So what we did manage was a festive messy play, a festive baby yoga class, an elf hunt and we saw a Santa in the shopping centre. I didn’t want to take him to a grotto in case he cried having to sit on a strangers lap but he actually loved it, typical! I would recommend these festive activities for anyone with a baby.
We spent Jasper’s first Christmas day with our little family of 3. We had a really relaxed day slowly opening presents and all playing together because we didn’t want to overwhelm Jasper and change his routine too much. It may have been a bit too relaxed though because we still had a couple of presents to open on the 27th.
For Jasper’s first Christmas dinner he had boiled potatoes, carrots sticks, sprouts and broccoli. He really enjoyed sitting with us and making a big mes with his vegetables but I’m not sure if he actually ate anything!
I really enjoyed Jasper’s first Christmas and I can’t wait to spend many more christmases with him and making our own family traditions. I would love to hear about your Christmas days and what traditions you do!
Thanks for reading, Jen x
