Amelia's first Christmas was wonderful.
Jeremy and I both went to wake her up that morning, which usually doesn't happen. I think recognized that something special was going on. She rubbed her little eyes and smiled at us when she woke up. It was such a happy little moment.
She "opened" her presents, which pretty much involved me taking the present out of the package. She got lots of babies, stuffed animals, and baby toys. She liked all of her presents, but I'm pretty sure she enjoyed the paper more than anything! :) When I was pregnant a year ago, I thought that my baby's first Christmas would pretty much involve my baby sitting in a corner like a little lump and not really participating. What did I know? Amelia didn't understand the concept, but I think she did have a good time. She was much more active and involved than I imagined.
I didn't take a whole lot of pictures since I had to hold her while she opened presents. Jeremy didn't take a whole lot, either, since he was videotaping the event with our new video camera. Luckily we both have sisters who had the foresight to take pictures for us!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
