Layla’s First Christmas January 2, 2011

Layla’s first Christmas went by very well.  She was a little superstar for the whole time. (she is of course a superstar all the time!).  She was a little more interested in opening the presents than I thought she would be (saying that she didn’t have to do much, Hayden took care of the majority of the opening), but predictably liked eating the paper more than the presents.  She also seems really interested in Hayden’s presents.  She was discarding her presents and wiggling around to get her hands on some of his toy cars or anything else she can.

Layla of course got some very cool presents of her own too.  She got some beautiful clothes (being the first Grand daughter I think everyone loves buying her clothes as there are so many pretty little girl outfits.), lots of rattle and chew toys (sounds like what Lucy and Mimi got too!) and this very cool dragon ball pit toy.   It is a dragon that is filled up with with little balls you find in those big toy pits.  She loves hanging out in there!

She got a little tired a couple of times during the two Christmas days we had but all it ever required was a change of scenery and everything was instantly better!  She continues to be a fantastic little baby! (and the prettiest Christmas baby ever – of course :D)


Open Presents.. February 21, 2010

Little late for the Christmas blog I know but better late than never – right?   I’ll keep it short.

Hayden definitely started to get the hang of Christmas this year and thoroughly enjoyed the idea of presents, even if wanted to open everybody elses!   As soon as he saw a present as far as he was concerns it was fair game to whoever could rip the paper off first.  I don’t think Kara or I got to open a single present as Hayden took care of that for us!  “Open presents?” was a very popular phrase that week!!

One of the magic moments was when he was opening his presents.  He was working through his toys and getting excited, and he came across some clothes, he just threw down the box/clothes and grabbed the next present!   Just like his daddy!!!

I like presents.  I like the paper they come in.  I am learning to open it and eat it.  It’s the best 🙂

I got lots of presents, it appears people like me.  I got this huge Giraffe which is really cool.  I’m going to ride that when I’m older 🙂  I also got this really cool activity mat that I lie around on all the time.  It’s got lots of things I can pull and play with.  I also got a jumperoo from my mummy and daddy.  It’s brilliant.  I like it when they put it in front of the TV when there is football on.  That is probably my favourite thing in the whole world.

I also got myself lots of cool clothes.  It is important that I look good when I’m out as I have a lot of chicks to impress.

I keep getting books – unfortunately I can’t read yet but I like to suck on them, I like to suck on anything I can get my hands on!!!  Yummy!

Since I’ve been born these nice people I’ve never met before keep turning up with or sending me presents.  They are the best!! Thanks so much!!!  Here are some recent pics of me enjoying some of my presents.

I heard lots of nice people bought me stuff before I was born as well at my baby shower!  Whoo Hoo.   Presents 😀
