It's been a busy, happy week(s) before Christmas 'round these parts. Lots of work, lots of play. A bit of shopping (98% of it online), a lot of eating, and a lot of good time with our families. And a whole lot of random, not-necessarily-festive pictures.
Millie enjoys hiding these days. Her curtains are obvious favorites.
|You'll never find me!|
|Sike! Here I am!!!|
|You'll REALLY never find me here, though!|
Millie has a new BFF...the honey bear.
|Sit right here while I eat, Honey Bear.|
|MWAH. I love you, Honey Bear.|
|BLOCKS!!! BLOCKS EVERYWHERE! BLOCKS FOR YOU! BLOCKS FOR ME!|
She is occasionally interested in playing with dolls lately. Mostly she wants to stick her (Millie-sized, real) bottles/sippy cups and pacis into their mouths. Or hurl them around violently. Some of these things are cute. Some of these things are scary.
|I can't dress myself yet, but I CAN point and grunt urgently towards the accessories I want to wear.|
|They woke me up again, Nohnuh. I just want to sleep. Why can't I sleep? Only you can understand me, Nohnuh. Comfort me with your kisses.|
This week she's been going to my in-laws' house instead of school. Her cousins (and aunts and uncles) are in town, so they've been having lots of fun adventures (without me!! waaaaaah).
All in all, it's been a wonderful December. I'm thrilled to have the rest of the week off to spend with my little family (and our bigger family, too). Millie's main Christmas present is already assembled (thank you, Matt...and four hours of free time) and safely tucked away in the garage under a tarp, and I am SO EXCITED for her to see it and start playing on Christmas morning!! I hope she is even a fraction as jazzed about it as I am, ha. I'm also still trying to decide on the perfect assemble-ahead-and-bake-the-morning-of breakfast casserole to have on Christmas morning, so ya know...a lot of grueling Pinterest in my future. Hashbrown casserole? Something sweet, like monkey bread? So many options, so little time.
I hope you have a happy and non-stressful last few days before Christmas!
