The rest of December 2013

The rest of December 2013

Despite the thumbnail picture and the name of this post, it’s still mostly pictures of Aaron.  But I slipped in a few other things as well.  :) The last post left off on December 16th, when Aaron was exactly 2 weeks old.  Just because I really like that picture, I’ll start this post with it.  […]
