Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

Merry Christmas!

It's been a full day. Amelia hasn't opened all of her presents - she's been too distracted by the Thomas layout that greeted her this morning. (Thank you Aunt Jeannine for yet another great hand-me-down toy!) She opened her stocking presents and opened about four presents under the tree. However, the plastic dinosaurs ended any further unwrapping. Those combined with the train layout - literally - was all she was interested in after that. They went walking on the track, watched from the side as trains went by, etc. Daddy says there's a reason why dinosaurs are extinct. (Yes, there is, but I don't think it has anything to do with trains.)

When I called Amelia to the table for lunch she responded, "No! I need to play with my trains!" Daddy was proud.

In the late morning we visited Livia and her parents. After lunch the neighbors came over. Then we visited with a few other neighbors including Dodah. Then at 5 pm we went to Nana's and had a good time exchanging gifts and eating food.
