Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas! I have to admit I got very caught in the hectic, hustle and bustle of the holiday season and for that reason I am sad it is over because I wish I could have done more meaningful celebrating then we were able to. Better luck next year is what I keep telling myself because there isn't much I can do about it now. It is such a great time of year to reflect on the birth of Christ and to be uplifted by spiritual messages and music. I hope next year I can take advantage of that and not be bombarded with the busy holiday season.

She loves her bike from Santa! We can't wait for the weather to warm up.

A New RItual

Andrew thinks Kinnie is the greatest thing in this whole world! It seems as if he is constantly watching her and observing her. He could sit and watch her play for hours, okay that is a stretch, in "baby time" like 5 minutes. The greatest thing about him absolutely adoring his big sister is that she is in love with him right back. They have already such a sweet and endearing bond and I will be honest, I am sometimes mesmerized by this incredible bond that is already so apparent. It will be interesting when Andrew starts to crawl, will he follow her around everywhere? I would think so.

This has been the ritual after bath time lately. Andrew used to get excited to get in the bath, and he still does, but now he gets excited for what happens after bath time. He loves loves loves Kinnie! He is a little bit distracted by me but usually he just cares about what Kinnie is doing and this usually goes on for about 5 minutes.
