Here she is opening the big present from Santa (aka Bibi and Babu). Can I just say how fun it is to have a little girl… we’ve been busy playing with the dollhouse, play with her new hairbrush a comb (simple, yes, but one of her favorite presents. she “does” my hair daily, informing me in a businesslike tone, “Don’t talk while I do your hair.” Then she confidently walks around me, fussing with each section of hair with her brush and comb. Not for the sensitive of scalp, but definitely a fun time otherwise.
Here she is being silly and watching some kitty show on cable with my mom. It went on for quite some time, but I just got a little clip. Oh how Alaythia does love to be amused by kitties…
After wearing down my parents for a bit, here she is the after a three hour drive during which she didn’t sleep a wink from Olympia to Arlington. We stopped once in Seattle for her to potty, and she was furious: “This NOT MaeMae Papa’s!” Obviously, she was excited.
Now we’re back home, watching lots of football (Seahawks?!), getting back into the groove of work/school/life. And learning about how one gets through a COLD St Louis January!!
