We had a lovely holiday… unfortunately since then I’ve been sick with a nasty cold, so blogging has been low on the radar. I’m feeling better now, though, thanks to lots of rest and tea.
Ellie very much enjoyed her second “first” Christmas. Her actual first Christmas was a non-event, given she was only 5 days old and I was barely conscious that week… all I remember about last year’s Christmas Eve was going to bed at 6 p.m. in an effort to get 2 solid hours of sleep before Ellie needed to be fed again. Woohoo, party time!
This year was obviously a lot more fun for all of us. Ellie was spoiled with gifts from Santa, friends and family (the birthday-Christmas proximity will treat her well in coming years), but mostly she had fun hanging out with her grandparents and uncle, entertaining everyone with her new tricks. She even started walking (!) on Christmas Eve, which was a big surprise. We also had a belated Christmas tree with Tim’s family which was very nice, but I forgot to bring the camera–story of my life.
Here are some photos of last week’s tree:
