50-52  We’ve been having a lot of conversations about waiting lately.  When she first saw the presents under the tree she said “presents!!” grabbed one, brought it to me and said “Open it!”  After I explained to her that at Christmas time, we have to wait till Christmas day to open the presents, she spent the next 20 minutes talking herself down (through tears) and reassuring herself about waiting till Christmas. The very next morning, she ran to the presents and the first thing she said was “Look at all the presents!  We have to wait.”

When I asked her what she *thought* she was getting for Christmas looked up and said “Hmm. Let’s see.  I think books. And toys.” But when I asked what she *wanted* for Christmas, she said “A tiny mommy and a tiny Lucy and a tiny Pug.”

I can’t wait to see her reaction to Christmas day this year.  I think it’s going to be so much fun!

On another note, it appears I had the same idea last year on the same week for the picture, because it’s basically the same image. Haha!
