Baby's First

My first nephew was born in July and now this is going to be his first Christmas.  I know he won't remember any of it, and he definitely won't appreciate this card (unless his parents save it for later, and they just might!), but I still needed to make him a Baby's First Christmas card.  So, here it is:
