Last Christmas {Flashback Friday}

December 7, 2012


Last Christmas

This time last year, our last Christmas, we were gearing up to Christmas with a 3 month old and it was exhausting! We lived further away from family so we stayed with my Mum over Christmas; that was where we took this photo. Poor little boy was subjected to a Christmas penguin outfit and this was about the only smile we got out of him while he had the hat on. It is one of my favourite photos of him; a sign of the mischief yet to come!

This year it seems so much easier and I love seeing Lucas enjoy the festive period. Looking back at last years photos I had all kinds of Christmas sleepsuits and t-shirts for him; I haven’t got any yet this year! I know his first Christmas will always be special but I’m looking forward to the many to come and the fun we will have as he gets older.

I’m linking this up to Mummy Mishaps and Real Housewife of Suffolk Country.

    Such a cute photo, I love his outfit!
    Christmas is so much better as they get older and they understand. We’re on our second year of Charles understanding and it’s amazing.

    Burton was 5 months old for his first xmas and we got him a little santa outfit!! has to be done i think 🙂 Lucas looks adorable as a little penguin and this year will be even better because he will just get stuck right in with tearing off paper and playing with toys and boxes!
    thanks for linking up x

      Ha, I think you are right Jenny but it will probably be mostly playing with boxes and wrapping! The gifts will be explored a few days later xx
