Fun, exciting expectations of your baby's first holiday and then reality sets in - tired from no sleep, no time to leisurely shop for gifts, meals to prepare and everyone wants to see your new LO....... The list goes on and on.

Share your plans and let's brainstorm to minimize the stress and take time to enjoy the holidays!

My daughter was born Nov 4 and I remember being stressed out trying to keeping her away from germy hands and kisses.

We also did not buy much that year, I think an ornament and books. Seemed like we were still overwhelmed from all the new stuff that goes along with having a new baby.

Packing was an ordeal. My "Be Prepared" Girl Scout tendencies annoyed my husband to no end (and still does)!

I don't remember our Christmas pic! Do you have one planned?
