On Christmas Day
Today was a wonderful day. You must have sensed the excitement in the air and woke up at 6:45 this morning-a full two hours before your normal wake-up time. But I think I was a bit excited as well as I was laying awake in bed long before that ;) Unfortunately you don't quite comprehend the sheer joy and excitement of opening presents, much to Daddy's dismay as he carefully wrapped each one, only for me to tear them all open-but you sure do know how to play with them all! And yup. This is what I look like in the morning...
Then it was off to Mor Mor's house. I love how excited you get when we pull into Mor Mor's driveway (or Grandma and Grandpa's too!) As soon as we got in the door, your Daddy graced us with his mad waffle making skills as you, Mor Mor and I played upstairs. After breakfast (your second breakfast-yep, you definately have those Willis genes in you!) the newlywedded Taylors' joined us and we got right down to opening presents. Despite some fussing at the end because of a desparate need for a nap, I think you had a wonderful time.
So back home we went for a much needed nap for you, and for your Mama and Daddy to spend a few hours building your new kitchen :) Then it was off to Grandma and Grandpa's house. There the most exciting and amazing thing happened. You gave Mama her best present ever-YOU WALKED. First a few steps, but then across the room. Over and over. You are now a walker. YOU WALKED. I am a mother of a walker. Somehow you grew taller tonight. Somehow your Mama grew a lot older tonight ;) but sweetheart, that was just the best present ever. I know that you will not remember this Christmas, I know that Christmas will mean so much more to you next year, I know that there will be other memorable moments, exciting moments, but this is the one I will never forget. Thank you.
I love you,
p.s. Why the Golden Graham's on the chair you ask? Why it was actually a present from Bj with a very special toy suprise-my very first pair of diamond earrings!!! Seriously-he put a sign on the front that said "toy suprise inside!!!
