The second week of December was filled with festive holiday activities. On Friday night, we attended the 965th Squadron Christmas Party. Unfortunately, it was a pretty lame event due to lots of games and not near enough dancing. Luckily, we had a great table to make the night more interesting and even ended up crashing the holiday party next door, which was playing great jams where we could break it down on the dance floor!

Saturday morning, we attended the downtown Norman Christmas parade. The temperatures were still quite frigid and extremely windy, so after about 30 minutes, we called it good. We got there just in time to see a few floats and Conan's first viewing of Santa. That evening we had our church Sunday School party and were able to get to know several of the couples in our class we had been attending the past few weeks. That Sunday morning, we officially joined First Baptist Norman and are so excited to be a part of this church family. Since then, I have joined the choir and Conan has become a nursery favorite. We are so excited to see what God has in store for us at FBC-Norman.
Conan has not been a huge fan of bath time during his early life. This was very disconcerting for us as bath time is one of the mechanisms encouraged for soothing a fussy baby. For him, getting undressed and wet only made him more angry. Although it did get somewhat better as the months progressed, it was still never a "fun" time for him. Finally, when he outgrew the infant bath and could safely sit up alone, we could bust out the giant rubber ducky (thanks for yet another hand-me-down, Laurel!). The first time he got in, we noticed an immediate difference and when we showed him how to splash, he was all smiles and laughter. Yes, finally he loves bath time, though now he cries when we take him out. Seven months has proved to be one of the most fun and engaging stages yet!
