Yeah, I know it’s January 18th. We’ve been busy and i’ve been a bad blogger. Better late than never. We had a wonderful Christmas holiday this year. It started in Kentucky where we traveled for a funeral for Aaron’s great uncle Don Henrickson. Here is Elijah with Grandma Janet.
Plato came with us too for the holidays. Aaron is trying to teach him how to be a horse.
There was another baby in the family who was only 4 days older than Elijah. They kept trying to take each others pacifiers, it was adorable.
Here is Elijah with his Great, Great Aunt Janice Henrickson.
Elijah and Grandpa Guy and second cousin Zach Ergo.
Then we headed to Bowling Green, Ohio where Aaron’s parents live. Here is a shot of Elijah getting a bath in the sink.
We celebrated Christmas at the Zimmerman’s before heading up to Michigan. We plopped Elijah down in front of the tree and he immediately decided to take a taste.
This is an adorable stocking hat that Grandma Janet knitted for him. It came with matching mittens too!
Dinner break! Elijah is also showing off his little booties that Grandma Janet made him.
These are matching outfits that Janet found for Grandpa Guy and Elijah, it reads “Little Guy” and “Big Guy”
Here they are sporting their new duds!
Another bath with Mr. Turtle.

The boy cousins, Zach and Alex Ergo and Aaron and Elijah.
On Christmas Eve we headed up to Saginaw, Michigan to Elijah’s Great Grandparents (Carol and Jack Ergo) home. Here is Elijah with GG Jack Ergo.
And with GG Carol.
Aaron and his sisters Rachael on the left and Emily in the middle.
The Christmas morning tradition in the Ergo home is for all of the kids to wait at the top of the stairs. Everyone runs down at once to find the pile of gifts Santa brought them.
This was Elijah’s pile from Santa.
He of course liked the paper the most.
Baby’s first piano!

The day after Christmas we headed up to East Tawas, Michigan to visit Grandpa Guy’s parents. Here is Elijah with his Great Grandpa Jack Zimmerman.
And with Great Grandma Jane.
And with his Great Uncle John.
Back in Saginaw GG Jack Ergo showed Elijah how to play the indian drum.
Back in Bowling Green, we took Elijah to his first storytime at the Libray. He loved the bear puppet!
Random naked picture. He LOVES to be naked!
And for the last picture Elijah attempting to crawl. He’s getting closer! We had a wonderful trip and made great memories for our baby’s first Christmas!
