He discovered the bag of bows while I was trying to finish wrapping some presents.
Playing with some of the fun toys that Santa left for him.
Checking out his stocking and some toys.
Ian loves these stacking cups. He likes pulling each one out, spreading them all around him, and then selecting 2 to bang together.
Ian and Natalie playing contentedly with their new toys.
"Look at this fancy remote control that Santa left me!" Ian LOVES remotes, and is always trying to steal the remote control out of my hands so he can play/chew on it. I guess the need to be in control of the remote is instilled in men at birth.
Shooting some hoops.
Unwrapping presents is serious business!
Staring at DadDad in a Santa hat. He was in complete awe.
This is my FAVORITE picture. I thought I would get a cute picture of him with the Santa hat on, but, as you can see, he didn't think that was a good idea. What a terrible Mommy I am to take a picture, and then console my child (as soon as the hat was off, the tears dried up)!
Looking at a present with MomMom.
Talking with Uncle Justin while Granddad puts together one of his new toys.
Admiring the new shoes, after removing the tissue paper ever so carefully.
Reaching for the exact piece of wrapping paper he wanted to rip next.
"Oh look, there are more presents over here!" He had just lost interest in tearing up the wrapping paper that is covering his body, and had found something more exciting to investigate.

I apologize if anyone thinks the videos are a little excessive. I wanted to make sure that Phil saw as much of Ian's first Christmas as possible, so I took quite a few videos. The quality of the videos isn't that great on the blog, but you can still see how much Ian enjoyed Christmas!
Discovering the musical instruments Santa left him.
Sitting on the cute dump truck Santa brought.
He got this hat in his stocking, and I wanted to get a picture of him with it on, but, as you can see, he didn't care for the hat at all.
Playing with his new basketball game.
Playing with Uncle Justin.
Unwrapping a present. He looks like he has been doing this his whole life!
What's the best part about Christmas for a 9 month old? Tearing up the wrapping paper! Why do we even bother with purchasing gifts?? :)
