Rivers favorite thing about Christmas so far = the tree.
This year we put the tree up even earlier. My goal was to let River get his fascination with the tree out of the way before we put the ornaments on it. And somehow that idea didnt backfire and actually kind of worked. He really does well just pointing at the ornaments now and not trying to rip them off the tree.
At other people's house he just runs up and says "oh my" "whats this?" and points at all the ornaments. He even tried hugging my moms ornaments on her tree.
He had a blast when we pulled our Christmas tree out. And I had even more fun watching him. Maybe one day he'll get to experience the joy of a real tree but for now he is pretty smitten with even this one:
after we finished "filling out" the tree he spent the rest of the night crawling under it and playing:
and then driving his cars through it:
pretty stinkin cute. We randomly find cars on the tree still. That boy is adorable.
