Merry and Bright
We put up our tree last weekend! I resisted the idea since I'm headed home soon and it kind of seemed pointless, but Adam convinced me and I'm glad we did. It's all Christmas-y in here!
Avery likes it. She is definitely crawling now, but she hasn't figured out that she can locomote wherever she wants now. She will crawl towards something she really wants - like me or the power cord to my computer - but she doesn't just crawl all over the place when you set her down yet. So the tree is safe haha. For the moment. She will probably figure it out right when we get to Yaya's house where there is LOTS of stuff to get into and the tree will have presents under it.
It's Christmas inside, but it's still 85 degrees outside. Well, I guess I can't complain. I do kind of miss chilly weather though and I never thought I'd say that. Maybe because the warm weather makes people think they need to overcompensate, everyone in our neighborhood goes all out decorating their houses, including giant inflatable yard ornaments, elaborate scenes, and lights to shame Clark Griswold. It's going to be so fun next year when Avery is almost two and can get excited about it all. This year will be cute, but I suspect Avery will be more interested in the wrapping paper than anything!
