The Joys and Mischief of my First Christmas......By Steele Brady

This is my first Christmas and I am lovin it so far. There are lots of shinny lights, glass ornaments and electrical cords galore. They are my favorite to put in my mouth and chew on.

My Mom is using the word NO a lot and I'm not sure what it means. She usually says it when I'm about to play with something really exciting so I don't know what her deal is. My latest fascination is toilet paper. It is the BEST tasting thing I've ever eaten! My Mom always runs to take it out of my mouth so I try to get as much in while she isn't watching. One swipe with my hand and the entire roll just starts spinning. I also love to bang on the toilet lid. Don't worry Mom always wipes it down with Clorox wipes before I play......I love being a baby!

I try my very best to behave almost all the time but sometimes I do things just to give it my own special touch. My finger prints look great on the stainless steel appliances!

Another one of my favorite places to go is the DVDs and electronics. I know Mom always keeps a close eye on me so I have to be quick. Every time she puts me down I speed for the big TV and the fun gadgets to play with. I LOVE remotes and climbing up the screen of the TV. Isn't that what they are for?

I LOVE my straw sippy and LOVE to spit blueberry juice onto Mom's carpet! Such fun.....

Railing is so fun to climb on! It makes Mom nervous but it gives me great views of Aunt Fergi's house!

I just want to have a bowl of cereal like my Dad. And YES I am strong enough to pick up this gallon of milk!

I am a really big help....right Mom?

My Mom and Dad really love each other! I can tell by how much they love me. This was the night we went and picked out our Christmas tress! It was freezing cold so they made me stay all bundled up in my car seat and stroller.

See... here I am all bundled up! Mom, I'm trying to smile for you but that flash is bright!

I love my family! I am really lucky to have such fun people to hang out with all the the time.
After we loaded up our Christmas trees we headed over to my great Uncle Jonny's house. This has been a tradition for a long time but this was my first visit.
I really liked meeting him. We got along great and he even let me play with his 30 year old famous JoeRaff. He is this stuffed animal that my Mom and all my aunts and uncles got a visit from when they were sick.

The next day we started decorating our Christmas tree! Tea and I get along really well and were doing such a good job with the lights.

Like I said, cords are the best to chew on!

Being the big helper that I am is what makes my parents love me!

Tea loves Christmas too


Daddy is really brave, unlike my Mom. He climbs all the way to the top of the ladder!

Auntie Brittany helped decorate a lot this year!

Cousin Hallie always plays with me and is a big helper too.

Wow...I wish I was up there. Of course Mommy wouldn't let me. \

What a big Christmas tree! I like it.

Merry Christmas from me Steele to you my friends and family!
