Mommy, Daddy, & Emerson traveled to Grandma & Grandpa Hubbell's house Saturday morning to celebrate her first Christmas. We managed to get her to tear open a few presents on Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, but for the most part she just sat back and took in all of the excitement. She wasn't all that interested in sleeping in her pack and play, so most every night she managed to find her way into bed with Mommy & Daddy. Not the best resolution, but at 2am you will do anything to get some sleep, right?
She is also mastering the art of feeding herself. We have been giving her Cheerios and Gerber puffs, and have found joy in watching her manipulate these little shapes in her hand and attempt to drop them into her mouth. She's mastered getting the food to her mouth, but still forgets to actually let go of it sometimes! If you look close at the picture of her with the red hat you can see a tiny remnant of food on her chin.
We headed back home on Tuesday so Emerson could open her Santa presents & the rest of her gifts from us. The drive home proved to be a little tricky as the Twin Cities was blanketed with some timely snowfall. Overall it was a great long weekend and hopefully a memorable first Christmas for little Emerson.
