Last week, Bart and I braved a 1,000-mile (one-way) road trip with Hudson to go visit family in Arkansas. It’s a trek we know very well, but never in ten years of marriage have we attempted it with a baby, so we didn’t know what what to expect.

Hudson will be four months old for his first Christmas, so he isn’t really going to remember what we do or any gifts he’s given. However, it seemed sad to not get him anything at all!

After a couple of months of near constant use, I thought it would be interesting to share my observations on this wearable fitness tracker.

With a new baby, I obviously don’t have quite as much time as I used to, but it was important to me to do at least a little holiday decorating around the house this year. It’s Hudson’s first Christmas, and though he won’t remember it, we will recall these special moments like hanging a third stocking on the mantel for the first time or watching him stare wide-eyed at the lights on the Christmas tree.
