Happy New Year!

Wow is it already 2006? It's been a great year for the Watterson family! Lots of life changes...and most of them revolving around a little boy named Chase.

We had a great Christmas! It was so awesome to see friends and family. We were able to be gone for about a week and a half this year. We went to see Preston's family and then my family and then went to Fort Worth to ring in the New Year. Chase's first Christmas was a hit. Everyone told me that babies are more interested in the boxes, bows and wrapping than anything else and it's totally true. Chase really likes wrapping paper. He got lots of new fun toys and clothes and even some practical stuff too. He even had fun meeting Santa at the mall. (By the way, don't go on Christmas Eve to get a Santa picture. It's madness at the mall and you have to wait forever!)

And guess what! He can sit up on his own now! It was like one day he couldn't for even a few seconds without propping up with his hands and then one day he could for long periods at a time. He really seems to like the world from his new view. His first sit was on Christmas Eve! He also took a bath in the sink for the first time and rode in the front of a shopping cart in honor of his new talent.

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks:
