Monday, 23 December 2013 Thirty Eight Weeks Old.
Everyone’s been telling me that at Ayla’s age she’ll be more interested in the paper than the presents on Christmas morning, but I’m afraid I’m going to have to beg to differ!
We had some friends pop over tonight for a Christmas Eve Eve celebration and they came bearing a gift for Baby Ayla.
Just like when she opened her gift from “Aunty” Ali the other day, Ayla was quick to realise there was a goodie hidden inside the crinkly stuff with Santa’s printed on it.
As soon as Ayla saw a glimmer of the sparkling FisherPrice fish tank she was mesmerised, staring at the piece of present peeking out beneath the wrapping.
I had to help her peel the paper back further, and once Ayla saw the whole gift she started squealing and bobbing up and down in delight.
Paper? What paper!?
It might have just been that Ayla’s “Aunty” Kez and “Uncle” Collie nailed the gift selection, or it could be a sign of things to come.
And that on Christmas morning in two days time, we can expect our little house to be filled with gorgeous wide eyes and adorable shrieks of excitement as Ayla opens her presents.
