Today William is six weeks, a month and a half old. As is recommended I sing to William all the time, so much so that I’ve joked to Matt that he must think he’s in a musical.
Last year was the first that Matt, Candy and I had attended the Pleasanton Christmas Parade together. This year we were excited to go again and take William. He was dressed in his special polar bear inspired coat, which resmebles a famous Coca Cola mascot.
This is a weekend of tree decorating for the Perri family. To start Candy visited us in San Jose so we could decorate the tree together. Candy had the great idea for us to take photos of William with the special ornament to commemorate his very first Christmas.
William was not scheduled to return to the pediatrician until January. However, as his nose still seemed stuffed up and he had been sneezing a bit more, we decided to take him to make sure it was not a cold or another condition that needed to be treated, especially as we were leaving for a weekend trip to Pleasanton.
Back when I was pregnant I participated in the first part of a Stanford study of stress hormone, cortisol, and baby development. Tonight William was brought in for the second part which involved me answering questions about the remainder of pregnancy and William’s childhood so far. For this phase he was also to undergo an MRI.
It’s been wonderful having Matt at home to help me parent William these last few weeks. Still, Monday was the day when he had to go back to work and it would just be me one on one with William.
When Candy, Matt and I took William to see Santa, I knew I’d want something special to display his photo in. I looked at several frames and even a snow globe before finding something even more unique and special. What Santa Wants For Christmas is a soft book for adults to share with their child(ren) with a great way to personalize it for their visit with Santa.
