For Thanksgiving, the little turkey looked extra special in her gold, shimmery sweater dress and brown fur-trimmed booties with hair accessories to match. She had to look good for all her special appearances scheduled for the day. Baby had three families looking forward to spending time with her on her first Thanksgiving and, somehow, she and Mom pulled it off....dinner with G'ammi, PahPah and Nana. Whew! I get exhausted just thinking about it. She had a great time eating all the wonderful, soft foods her little belly could stand. Even without a tooth in sight, baby girl savored many flavors of her first Thanksgiving Day.
Baby's First Christmas was the most charming, funny, fun and whimsical Christmas I've experienced in a long time. It was not only special because of our newest family addition but also because my sis and niece came all the way to the northeast from North Carolina, to spend Christmas with us. The long weekend was filled with parties, shopping and lots of quality family time. Our little darling couldn't get enough of her first Christmas tree and the ornaments, of course. Every day was a joy and a scramble; between her delight with and seeming determination to destroy the holiday decor, we were stir crazy!
She may not have known what was going on but she enjoyed every bit of it. The best part of it all was on Christmas Day, when it was time for her to open her gifts. We weren't sure if she would do the unwrapping or Mommy & Daddy would but boy, did she show us! There was no mistaking her unwrapping skills; she pulled and ripped and even bit the paper off of her first gift. Her enthusiasm didn't wane as she went on to unwrap her other gifts. In fact, she was still trying to unwrap other people's gifts in the days following.....LOL
Of course, her first holiday season wouldn't have been complete without an awesome wardrobe to match. Check out the gran'diva in a few of her holiday looks:
