We had a pretty quiet Christmas, with just the inlaws here. We decided not to overwhelm Ameli with presents, so although there were about eight bits and pieces under the tree for her, we spread opening them over the course of Christmas eve and Christmas day so that she had a chance to actually play with each item before opening the next. I’m really pleased we did that as it worked really well and she got to spread the excitement out.
She also really loved ‘helping’ everyone else open their presents. This Christmas I passed on a tradition to her. Historically I’ve always handed out the presents – this year I let her do it. What better time for new traditions.
Thank you so much for joining us for our Pic of the Week this (last) year. From next week on we’ll be returning to a picture a day in the form of Mamatography 2012. If you’d like to join us, there’s still time to sign up!
