I thought she was a little close to that nativity scene on her right but I took her picture anyway. She kept craning her neck farther and farther back until...
She bonked her head right on the corner of the nativity and then her head slid down the nativity and she landed on the floor crying. Being the good mom that I am (I took her picture and then) I scooped her up in my arms. After two seconds of comforting she was perfectly fine, looked at me like I was a crazy, over-reacting mother, and squirmed to be put down.
I put her down across the room from the tree, but she rolled right on over to it again. This time she had a much happier time under there.
The snowmen and nativity sets are supposed to keep her from getting at the presents. I really didn't think I'd have to deal with that sort of thing this year, but I do. Rachel's quite precocious. She doesn't really know what presents are, but she knows they're wrapped in paper and that's exciting enough for her. She loves to crinkle up paper and chew on it. We can't leave anything out any more.
And now for a few fun pictures...
I gave Rachel a candy cane from the tree (with the wrapper still on, of course). She loved it! Of course, she loves anything she can put in her mouth.
Kisses for Mommy!
This picture just makes me want to say "dosie-doe!" I think it's hilarious. How about you?
And a parting shot of her battle wound that, once more, I freaked out about more than she did.
