Callie must have heard the reindeer on the roof as she was up ALOT last night. Either the reindeer or the excitement of Santa coming. That or the eczema flare up, or the constipation, or the new front tooth coming in. She sure has been fussy lately but who can blame her with all that going on. She was up at 5:30 AM and ready to go. Juan gave her some more prune juice after she got up to try to help get her poor belly moving again. Here they are on the floor drinking it up.
Then after the video went out we proceeded to open all the gifts Callie had. She opened a few herself before she got tired of ripping paper and was more interested in the actual toys, the ornaments, the tree, etc. So we opened the rest for her. We said bye to everyone in CT and had breakfast and a nap before heading over to the Chavez household. Here she is with all her morning present opening loot. And that's less than half the stuff she got all day. Spoiled much?
Once we arrived at the Chavez house we had a great breakfast with eggs, meat, chilaquiles, tamales, and more before opening gifts. Callie was wearing the very appropriate bib at breakfast that says "Who needs Santa when I have grandma".
Callie almost made it through the nearly 1.5 hours of opening gifts. By the end she was tired, hungry and grouchy. We packed up and took her home for a nap. Juan and I also took a nap since we had been up early and it was just an exhausting day.
Callie got a ton of great stuff, so much more than she asked for, hehe. A big thank you to all our family and friends who bought Callie gifts. It was so much more than she needed, but she has already shown she likes playing with all of them. Here is a short video of her playing with LOL Elmo and her new wood walker. Other highlights were the Elmo guitar (she learned from Bogar how to play yesterday) and the bead maze cube.
We also got a family gift from my parents of a BOB jogging stroller. We decided we should take it out for a test run, so we went for an afternoon stroll with the dogs. It works awesome, right over the curbs, bumps, no issues whatsoever. Callie also seemed to enjoy it as she can sit up a little more than in her regular stroller and also she can see right out, no tray stopping her from leaning forward or seeing. Thanks for the awesome stroller, we can't wait for GiGi and Gramps to get her in a little over a week so they can take her out walking in it. We missed having them here for Christmas but called them 3 times on Facetime today so we really got to see and talk to them.
