makaela’s first christmas eve

danny’s sister and brother-in-law hosted both of their families for makaela’s first christmas eve. at almost 10-months old, she was surprisingly super into the holiday tearing into gifts and excitedly playing with her new toys. she’s standing up on her own but hasn’t quite taken that first step yet – it’ll be soon though. the best part was watching her zoom around the living room with her new walking toy – laughing all the way.

we had appetizers, cocktails, desserts and enjoyed the company of two families while we watched the newest member take it all in. it was a wonderful christmas eve.
