Our Christmas Dilemma
Our family had so much to be thankful for this Christmas! 6 weeks before Christmas, Lily Baker came into our lives. That's the greatest gift we could ever have asked for! And despite her early entry into the world, Ann Catherine is healthy and thriving. We are so blessed!
Having said that, we faced a Christmas dilemma this year: What do you get a 6 week old baby for Christmas? Lily didn't really need any toys. Number one, she's too young to really play with anything yet. And number two, we already have a playroom full of toys! So we decided to take the practical approach. We bought things for her room. We bought pictures to hang on the walls. And she also got a lamp and a mirror for her dresser. I know it's not that exciting, but it's stuff we really needed. And she's too young to even know what's going on this Christmas so I took advantage of it :) I'm sure next year will be an entirely different story!
As for Ann Catherine, Santa brought an awesome gift - an Elmo chair! Ann Catherine loves Elmo and loves to sit in her chair and watch TV. I've attached a picture of her on Christmas morning sitting in her chair playing with her new learning table.
Christmas took on such an incredible meaning for us this year! At times it was hard to believe how blessed we are! Our family felt so complete this year with the addition of Lily. I hope your holidays were just as happy!
p.s. If you're wondering why I didn't post any pictures of Lily, it's because she slept all day on Christmas :) What a life!
