|December 13, 2011: Such a stud.|
We had noticed that his tongue had looked a little forked on the end, but hadn't worried too much about it. Both my mom and pediatrician said that he had a tight frenulum. Our pediatrician recommended that we go ahead and clip it now just to make sure he doesn't have troubles with speech in the future. So, he had to get cut up on both ends : ( He was one tired guy afterwards. All that stress would make me tired too.
But besides the crying at the doctor's office, he didn't even fuss that much when we would change his diaper and he didn't have a hard time nursing either. He is quite the little trooper.
On that note, I just want to say that while he might not look much like a Krebs, but he sure does take after his dad in temperament.
|November 26, 2011: He sure does love his papa.|
|November 26, 2011: hanging out with dad.|
|November 26, 2011: It's amazing how much bigger he already is!|
|I love those little feet :)|
|Ho, ho, ho!|
|Our little peanut :)|
|We got him a stocking, but by the time we took photos, he was too big to fit!! :)|

There are pictures of Jack at the end... scroll down now if that's why you're here :)
Christmas is easily my favorite time of the year - I think for Emily it would be any time spent at the beach - but for me it is Christmas time. Christmas means family, great music, happy memories and the opportunity to make new memories. Most importantly Christmas gives us the chance to hear from the prophet in the annual First Presidency Christmas Devotional (which has great music from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir) and allows us to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. You've already seen a little about how I participated in Savior of the World this year, that allowed me to get into the Christmas spirit earlier than usual.
We've been decorating around the house with gifts, crafts and new purchases. Here's what Christmas looks like around the Krebs house - along with a lot of singing, cookies, changing diapers and happiness!

|Hey, even got some presents!|
Although we will be traveling to Kentucky and South Carolina for Christmas this year, the highlight of this years celebrations will be the arrival of our son, Jackson :) There is really no present that can top this little guy - just look at him (no, not even an ipad, imac or a smart TV). This is a photo shoot with Dad (on Dec. 9th) after we got him ready for his first trip out of the house (not for the Dr.) to go to campus and buy our 2011 Nativity...

So, before you get another post with new pictures of our son I have to post about a great production I was able to be a part of this weekend, "Savior of the World." Our stake did the first act that is about an hour and is all about the events leading up to the Savior's birth. It was an incredibly enriching opportunity that allowed me to reflect on the Savior, his birth, his life and his ministry. I was blessed to play the part of Joseph, Christ's earthly father, and I learned so many great lessons about being a real father. I am so grateful that I was able to share this experience and make some great new friends :) Please bear with all the pictures.

Sorry, those pictures came in no particular order. It was an incredible experience to be able to portray this part of the Savior's life - and it was fun to be back on stage again. I'm grateful for my Savior and for the reason that is truly behind the season.
Merry Christmas :)
