Merry Christmas Eve


I have been in a cookie frenzy the last few days, so I haven’t been online much.  We’ve had two Christmas celebrations already and we’re headed down the track for 3 – 5 more. I’m losing count!  Everything is a whirl.

It’s fun having a baby around for Christmas. And this last week, she’s really made a whole lot of changes. Actually, TODAY (technically yesterday) she made a ton of changes. At baby story time, she grabbed a book page and was reaching for a picture on the page. She can grab for cloth, but she’ll still only hold onto toys nearby instead of reaching for them. But she did latch onto a rattle and shook it, stared at it, tried to eat it and then laughed at it.  She’s started shrieking, squealing and making belly laughs. She can anticipate the “punchline” of a song, like the POP in pop goes the weasel — and if you sing it to her two or three times, she’s start laughing before you get to “pop!”  This was all just today. I don’t think she was doing any of this stuff yesterday. It’s like a switch flipped in her brain and suddenly all of this new stuff started popping out. It’s amazing. I feel like she gave me a gift.

    It really is like a gift, isn’t it?
    It was my baby’s first Christmas too. It’s lovely to watch him experiencing things for the first time, and learning to do things! 🙂
