Moana's Second Christmas

We definitely had more fun at Christmas this year than we did last year. Last year Moana was just about two months old, so you know she pretty much just slept through the whole day. Not even presents from Santa could keep her awake.

Here's how she woke up this year. You can see why I put that silly pony tail on top of her head every day.

And here's how a 14 month old opens presents. Her favorite this year was a "Pillow Pet" doggie she got. Her whole afternoon nap was spent right on top of this puppy.

The cutest thing was probably watching her watch this video* once I uploaded it. She yelped out loud at the computer screen while watching herself open the doggie.

So it was a fun day! Moana was a bit overwhelmed I think... she would have been just as happy to get a single present... in fact, she felt the need to play with every single one after opening it and had no interest in opening another until we prodded her into it... but turns out Grammy sent a bunch so we spent a good bit of time teaching her how to rip wrapping paper today. :) Tomorrow is going to be such a disappointment after the excitement of today.

I hope you all had a wonderful day!

*Be prepared for many more videos to come in 2010. Santa brought Scott a flip video camera so we're making movies out of everything from now on.

Very nice present unwrapping skills!

I also notice the universal baby sign for "I want out" is throwing toys out of the crib.

G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S! She is just too much - my nieces have the hair thing too . . . my SIL has so many clips and bands to keep it out of their faces, but as you can probably relate it often finds it's way back into their faces :) Glad you guys had a fun Christmas!!
