Merry Christmas!

Magnolia had a wonderful Christmas yesterday! She was so funny because it literally took her all day to open her gifts! She would open one and then play with that for about an hour, and then open another present. It was so cute! She finished opening up her last gift right before she went to bed last night. She was so happy and loved staying in her pajamas all day. Magnolia must have been a very good girl this year because she sure got a lot of great stuff! I feel so fortunate to be able to have such a wonderful day!
Magnolia got several new things for her baby, including a little crib for her to sleep in and a carrier that Magnolia can strap on herself and carry baby around on her chest. Magnolia thought she was so cool that she could walk around with her baby on her! She is so motherly!

Happy Half Birthday!

Magnolia is officially a year and a half today! Oh my goodness... tomorrow she will be closer to 2 than to 1! Where does the time go? These pictures were taken as she was standing next to her growth chart to see how tall she is. She is 32 inches tall! What a big girl!
She has been into trying to repeat EVERYTHING that we say the past few weeks. So funny... now David and I need to make sure we pay attention to what comes out of our mouth!

We had a very exciting night last night... Magnolia got to sit on Santa's lap! She was all business and very focused. She concentrated on him and took in everything! When we were walking away she turned around, gave a wave and said "bye bye Santa!"

Grammy and Pappa

Let me first apologize that I have been such a slacker on updating Magnolia's blog. Mags has been fighting a cold this week so she has needed extra cuddle and snuggle time!
David's parents were able to come out last week for some Christmas fun. Magnolia had a blast showing them all of her new tricks and saying "Hi Pappa!" She got to have a jump start and open some Christmas presents early. Grammy made Magnolia an amazing Brown Bear quilt that Magnolia just loves. She has so much fun finding all the different animals on it. She also got a puzzle that is her name. She is so cute because whenever she has the letter "i" we say "thats the letter 'i'" She then proceeds to put it next to her eye! I tell you, the English language is so hard to understand!
Magnolia was also able to show them how much she loves the snow! Her daddy bought her an inflatable tube to ride in so her, pappa and David went out and played. Magnolia sure does love having company... especially family!

The Eye Roll

I am starting to wonder if Magnolia is a teenager trapped in a one year old body! This little miss has learned to roll her eyes at me before she can even say "mama!"
