I want to do it again!

I know most people are glad to see the crazy season end but I really wish we could do Christmas morning again!  Monkey had so much fun.  He loved opening his presents.  We heard several “Wow!”s.  He loves his toys, he even enjoyed opening the clothing.  Watching him have so much fun was totally worth the 2:30 and then 5:30 wake-up calls.

We’ve spent a lot of time with family over the last few days as well and watching him interact with everyone was a ton of fun.  He seemed to enjoy being the center of attention whenever possible and more than once went out of his way to get his share of the glory.  He was amazingly social and vocal.

There are a million funny things I kept telling myself to blog about but my brain is so fried from all the excitement that I can’t think of anything at the moment, lol.   Let’s see…He was a huge fan of presents but had no interest in gifts until we explained that gifts were presents, then he was down with both and used the words interchangeably.  Not bad for two totally new vocabulary words.  He let his Grampy pick him up, dangle him upside down and tickle him…when he was done he told Grampy “Put me down!”  lol.   He sat on the couch with his Great Grampy and shared a movie on his DVD player.  He would look at the gift tags and yell “Me!” every time he read his name.   Santa left a Wii Fit under the Christmas tree and Monkey has already decided on his favorite games for Umma and Duhdee to play…he’s a slave driver…we don’t need a personal trainer!

I’m sure I’ll think of more once my brain recharges 🙂  I hope everyone has enjoyed the holidays!

    “Brain Fried” is exactly the right word! I’ve got it, too! Sooner or later the kids will settle down and all will be back to normal, but I wouldn’t trade our craziness for anything!!!!
