Christmas 2013

Fynn's first Christmas! As expected, he was more interested in the wrapping paper and boxes (right now, if someone had wrapped up a bunch of electrical cords in a big box, he would have been in heaven!). He wasn't that interested in opening gifts, and he would immediately put the paper into his mouth as soon as he could. He did get some fun cars and tractors that he enjoyed, though - and he instantly knew to drive them around and make "vroom" sounds. Miss Mia picked out a train toy for him, but I'm pretty sure she's had more fun with it than he has at this point. We got him the red rocking moose from IKEA, which he's still a little too young for, but he loved rocking gently while I held him on there. I'm sure he'll grow into it soon enough! He managed to not pull the live Christmas tree down on himself, so that was a big success. He did pull multiple ornaments off of the tree, so we had to watch what was low enough for him to reach.

Mia decided about two weeks before Christmas that all she wanted was toys, so she was "that kid" at Christmas in which she would open a gift and immediately proclaim "Oh, I wanted a TOY!" She did get some toys, including a stuffed Clover bunny from Sophia the First (her favorite show right now), and a Leap Frog tag reader, which she's really enjoying as it lets her "read" books all by herself. We got her a CD player with a microphone and the Sophia CD, so she's been singing away in her bedroom. We also got memberships for both the Children's Museum and the Science Museum, so we can keep her plenty busy this winter! Her favorite thing that she got (according to her) is the Doc McStuffins watch that Santa gave her in her stocking. She already figured out how to put it on herself (a big plus, in my book!). She also had her first photo with Santa, taken at her new preschool (more on that later), which was pretty cute!

 Christmas morning! Fynn was tired.
