This morning was interesting. Naomi ate 9 oz. at her 5 A.M. feeding, so at 8, Naomi wasn't very hungry. However, she attempted some apples and seemed to like them.
We opened stockings around 8:30. Then, Naomi was tired, so we put her down to nap, and we ate our breakfast and watched Claymation Christmas, which we had intended to watch last night but didn’t get a chance to because Naomi wouldn’t go to sleep! (Is that an indication of Christmas Eves to come?!)
As I cleaned up, Stephen checked on Naomi and discovered that she wasn’t sleeping, so he brought her back out to the living room. He decided that we should open her present from Grandma and Grandpa Rhoda and put it together first thing. Naomi liked it, but she isn’t quite ready for it. She needs to grow a little taller and be able to sit up without assistance before she’ll really be able to enjoy all of its features.
On to gift opening! Naomi decided to help Daddy and seemed intrigued by the first pretty box and ribbon. Her lack of napping quickly caught up with her, though, and she fell asleep after opening her first present (a dress from Aunt Lori).
And so, our precious daughter slept her way through most of the unwrapping of presents, surrounded by the ones she loves…or at least by the ones who love her.
We’ll try to get pictures of her with the other gifts she received when she’s a little more awake. THANK YOU for your generosity and love!
