First Christmas

Isabelles first Christmas was so great!! She really seemed to like opening her gifts - even if she really did only want to eat the wrapping paper haha. Having her here makes everything better, and it certainly made Christmas awesome! Isabelle did really seem to like her gifts, particulary an Elmo phone and Super Sleuth Winnie the Pooh from Daddy! My parents and one of my younger sisters came for dinner which was nice, I love spending time with them, and Isabelle adores my parents.
On Sunday Gilles took me on a date - we went to see Avatar, and it was amazing! It was the most beautiful movie I have ever seen. The 3D was awesome, and the graphics and scenery in the movie were breathtaking. I laughed, cried, and yelled at the screen. Yup, crazy lady right here! I love getting out with Gilles, but it is definately nice to see Isabelle when we pick her up at my parents!
Monday was my neice Madis 2nd birthday. Its hard to believe 2 years have gone by already...I remember when Stacy was in the hospital, and I was there as her birthing coach. I was the first one to hold Madison, and it was amazing. Also watching what she went through in labour really prepared me for when it was my turn. She was so cute at her birthday party, mostly interested in her helium ballons though lol. And I had no idea that a 2 year old would like to receive clothing! She was squealing and grinning when she opened my gift, it was so cute!
Isabelle was 7 months on Sunday...I can't believe that either...she is growing so fast, learning so much, changing all the time, and always making us laugh! She really keeps us on our toes now as she is all over the place! She is amazing, and I feel so lucky to have her, and that she is healthy.
