This morning when we woke up Stella, Daddy asked her if she knew what today was. She replied: "Piano." Because that is what she has been asking for for Christmas from Santa. She was super excited to open all the gifts, and I was surprised that right as she got them out from under the tree, she knew which ones were Mommy's and which ones were hers.
She only got a few presents, but has already learned to rotate playing with them very nicely. She loves her Pottery Barn diaper bag, and has been using it to change her babies' diapers. Then she vacuums with her play Dyson vacuum. Then she takes some pictures with her new digital camera (thanks Peter, Julayne, Nathan, and Chloe!) Then she plunks down a few notes on her new piano. And then she starts watching one of her new movies.
Stella was very nice this year, and she deserves all the joy the day can bring because she brings so much joy to her mommy and daddy every day the whole year through.
