We are so excited for our first Christmas as parents. We decorated our Christmas tree yesterday and Mia just stares at the lights on it. I was worried the flashing bulbs might overstimulate her, but she seems to like them. She, like her mom, likes Christmas music too. We're sitting here listening to Country Christmas dancing around the house. I guess she could just like the bouncing, but I'm sticking with the music theory.
As we were getting our gifts ready to put under the beautifully eclectic tree we decided that we need to go to Toys R Us to buy Mia more presents. We got a gift card for Toys R Us from Josh's corporate office in Toronto when Mia was born. We tried to use it on toysrus.com, but it told us that the card had no balance so I read the back and it says that it is good in Toys R Us stores in the U.S. and Canada, but only online at toysrus.ca. Well, we can't order online through toysrus.ca because of shipping so now we have to go to a store to use it. I hope we can get over there before Christmas. It's not like she'll know the difference though I guess. I'm just so excited to have a baby to buy for and there's no excuse to buy her gifts between now and November so I may as well get her the 6 month learning toys and stuff. So far we bought her one toy and 3 books. Am I being silly buying our 1 month old Christmas presents?
I hope you're all in the Christmas spirit. Merry Christmas!
