Since Taft's first Christmas was last year, we tried to start some traditions with him. We read "The Night Before Christmas" before bedtime.
Reading on Christmas Eve - Taft 6 months old
We also started Taft his own Christmas tree in his room. Everyone in the family bought him ornaments to go on it and when we traveled he also got souvenir ornaments of his own. This year I am starting him a little 2 up scrapbook album of his ornaments, the year that he got them, and who/where they are from. I know that I will forget if I don't.

Also - we are starting a new tradition this year. Taft has an elf named Quincy. Quincy came last year but got here very late and Taft was really too little to enjoy him. Everyday in December, Quincy will appear and bring him little gifts. Kinda like an advent calendar but way more fun. I love that there will be so many things to do with him and his elf as he gets older.

Merry Christmas everyone! I look forward to reading the other posts today! Maybe I will find some new traditions.
