As I mentioned in the last post, the one redeeming quality about the Holidays in 2010 was that two new babies were added to our family. And on November 19th, those babies turned one!
We celebrated by giving the twins their presents (I know, VERY original and unique. Feel free to take notes on all our celebratory ingenuity).
Maya caught on very quickly to the whole "opening presents" thing, and was very...shall we say...excited...about the whole process.
But no matter how fast a one year old opens presents, it's not quite fast enough. So the older sisters decided to join in and give her a hand. It was a sacrifice they were willing to make.
Lilly, on the other hand...well...let's just say it took her a little longer to catch on.
"Uhhh...what do you want me to do with this mom?"
"Yeah, I think I'm going to go see what Maya's doing."
(We picked her up and put her back in front of the present.)
"Okay, um...I think you want me to do something with this baggie thing."
(We clapped and said, "Yay Lilly! Open your presents.")
"You guys are so weird."
Then Maya came over to show her how it was done.
I can't believe my babies are already one! Happy (late) birthday my little ladies. I love you!
