When Hadley wakes up in the morning, or from a nap, the first thing she asks is, "Is it Christmas today?" And so the challenge is trying to find something that could somehow replace the excitement of opening presents to fill our day. It's not easy.
But yesterday I thought it'd be fun to go out for breakfast with the girls since it was too cold to be outside at a park. We went to Whole Foods and Hadley got a blueberry scone, blueberries, and blueberry juice. The child would eat her weight in all things blueberry if she could.
Harper has seemed to have decided she no longer wants baby food, and so she had fun chomping on a piece of blueberry scone as well.
However, when she is sitting in this stroller, she prefers to do this:
Hadley isn't only excited about opening her presents, she is also excited about making presents for people as well. She likes to pick out toys or DVDs around the house she thinks other people would like, put a bow on it, and add it to the pile of presents in the living room. Yesterday I suggested she make some Christmas cards for some people in the family and she liked that idea.
Harper liked the idea, too.
