Mimi's First Christmas

Mimi and her cousin Oriana finally got to meet for the first time! They had so much fun cooing to each other and trying to bite each other's hands and feet! Needless to say, the babies definitely got more than enough attention and love over Christmas. My dad called as soon as he got home from Nashville and said he was already having baby withdrawals!

This is most of the Nixon clanMimi is obsessed with her feet now -- it seems to be a reflex for her feet to fly into the air (or in her mouth!) as soon as we place her on her back.
Why, yes, that is "The Singing Bee" game in the background! I love it! But I'm sure no one else loves hearing me sing . . .
Christmas Eve was spent with the Darbys, and Mimi slept through the opening of all her presents.

4 Months Old

Mimi turned four months old on Monday, and we took her to the pediatrician today for a check-up and shots (wah!). She is weighing in at a whopping 13lbs 2oz and is 23 3/4" long. After the check-up, we were so excited to bring Mimi home and make our first attempt at feeding her rice cereal! Needless to say, it was a failure . . . but we had fun trying!
