YaYa-- Brody's Christmas Elf

Under the tree we found a present that said To: Brody Luke Please open on December 1st
(It was from My Mom)

This was the first present that Brody has ever opened and he loved it.

In the Box we found "The Elf on the Shelf." It is an adorable book with a little elf for the Christmas Season. Each year we will bring the Elf out and put it in our house and the Elf will watch Brody and report the good and bad to Santa Claus. I am so excited to start this tradition with Brody. When I asked Brody what he wanted to name his Elf his words exactly were... "YaYa." So Brody's Christmas Elf's name is YaYa.

Opening his First Christmas present
The train is a big distraction










What is this?




Can I chew on it?


Can I hang him upside down?

Maybe I will just give Yaya Kisses!!


We went and put YaYa in a special spot... on the entertainment center.

Oh I love Elf on the Shelf! I want one for Riley so bad! That's so cute that he said yaya for it's name! Thanks for the sweet comment. I feel like a whale though! Oh well it's worth it of course! I was just catching up on your last few posts. It looks like Brody had a great 1st Thanksgiving! And he looks so big in his Santa hat & jeans! Man, you are still nursing? You go girl! I wish I could have done it for longer than 8.5 months but Riley just stopped being interested. That is so good for him though!
