My gorgeous baby girl Ella is now 14 months old and about to have her 2nd Christmas, this will be a little different to last year. Last year I had to wake her up and she snoozed on her bouncer while I opened her presents. This year I am pretty sure she will be doing the waking and if today is any indication, she will be opening her own pressies.
Today whilst I was wrapping the last few gifts I allowed her the rare opportunity to hang in the room with the Christmas tree and all the presents. She toddled around playing with rolls of paper, no harm I thought, then she picked 1 of her own presents out of her sack, again no harm I thought, well within a few seconds I hear the tearing of paper and she had thankfully got the boring parcel of new bibs and not toys, so she was bored with the contents of that 1. 2 baubles ripped off the tree and a strand of beads later she was removed from the room with hysteria that only watcing the Wiggles could repair.
So in the last few months we have also had an Epic Farmyard themed first birthday party, about 50-60 people an abundance of food, my first birthday cake I have made in a very very long time and a fabulous day had by all, especially the birthday girl.
Jamie and I have also lost over 20kgs each and are still going and are doing our best to fit in some excercise to keep the weight coming off.
Lots more happening but I won't bore you all with a big long post, will just try try try to do more little updates for you all.
So to finish off I would like to Wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a super happy new year for 2011 and I will leave you with these cute pics taken by my friend Kim Arnold for Christmas.
