My little girl in a pink puffy chair

I believe Little Miss greatly enjoyed her first real Christmas. I say first real Christmas because she was born on Christmas of 2009, so this year was actually her second Christmas. But since we were in the hospital with a newborn for all of the holiday last year, some would say it didn’t count.

At any rate, she woke up smiling and ready to enjoy the day!  Her daddy and I greeted her with the video camera to record her first birthday morning. After some milk and a diaper change, we headed out to the living room to open our presents together. Little got some books (I think I may have a problem when it comes to buying books…I can’t stop!), play kitchen food, and some puzzles among other things.

After finishing our own presents, we went over to Daddy’s parents’ house to visit with lots of family. It was a little overwhelming with all of the people and presents, but one of Little’s gifts was a pink oversized arm-chair and ottoman from Nana and Poppy. She got up in that chair, and it was obvious that she was just taking it all in. While everyone opened their gifts and visited with each other, my sweet girl sat peacefully, toying with a small wrapped box. I don’t think I will ever forget the way she looked sitting in that chair for the first time.

On Christmas night Ressie, Papa C, and Auntie (my mom, dad, and sister) came over for a delicious meal and more gifts. It was low-key and relaxing as we slowly opened each present. Little Miss got more books, the cutest little talking purse, and an owl lamp for her room.

I really can’t believe that Christmas day has already come and gone. It happens more quickly with each year, and I fear that with a child, it will only continue to fly by even faster. I hope that with every holiday, Little Miss is able to hold on to the joy and awe that was so easily observed on her sweet face in that pink puffy chair.
