Christmas in Connecticut

Zachary and I flew to CT on Dec. 18 to visit my family for Christmas. Dane joined us 3 days later after completing his first semester of PhD studies.
Zachary had a blast with his Grammy and Dada...

Uncle Matt and Aunt Sonya...

...but, it was an indescribable treat for him to have 10 days to play with his cousins! In that length of time he was able to enter into their world a little and get to know and love them.

He got to watch their gymnastics class

...but, after a while he found new ways to entertain himself

Watching Sesame Street characters move (ie. not pictures) for the first time

Story time with Aunt Sonya

Christmas morning

Really enjoying his Christmas breakfast

One of my favorite parts of our trip was watching Zachary run back and forth between his cousins giving them hugs.

Here's the hugging in action!

Man, I love this little guy!
