Friday was also the first time you reached for a toy! Daddy and I gave you your first Christmas present last week since we knew it would help you learn and grow. It is a jungle mat with lots of toys and lights and music and different textures. Sometimes you like it, sometimes you don’t. Friday you were very interested and after lying real still and watching the lights for awhile, you then reached up and hit the little parrot! Not just once or twice but several times. I could barely believe my eyes. Grammy showed up just in time to watch you play. You were so cute! I have tried to get you to reach for the toy a couple times since, but this weekend you decided you would much rather be held than put on the floor to entertain yourself. Imagine that.
You saw almost every one of your aunts and uncles this weekend! Uncle Shane, Aunt Lori, Aunt Lesley, Aunt Paula, Aunt Shelby and Uncle Clayton. You have such a good time with them all. And you loved Grace and Frank. When they talk you concentrate and try so hard to see them. I think you know they are your cool older cousins and you love them. Aunt Paula is staying with us tonight and we had fun playing with your glasses.
Here is “Professor Aunt Paula”.
And “confused student Mama”.
And this is “annoyed cat Misty”.
