X-Mas 2011

I swear having children makes X-Mas even more fun than it was when I was little, if that's even possible. Audrey had so much fun these past two days. She pretty much passed out tonight when we put her in her new big girl bed tonight, much to our relief. We always pictured her first night in the new being her running around in her room and us having to put her back to bed 100 times. Luckily for us she's awesome and exhausted.

She is such a lucky little girl and we don't take that for granted. She already had more toys than she could play with and now it's had a significant percentage added to it. I think the real challenge as she grows older will be how to get her to truly appreciate what she has and to never take it for granted. We want to have her donate some of her things to charity and see that there are people less fortunate than her and show her how she can help them.

As for the big girl bed. We converted her crib into a toddler bed with a bumper rail on the side so she can now climb in and out. It's hard to believe she's there already. I know it's cliche to say that kids grow up fast but it's so shocking as an adult of static size and intellect to see how much and fast a person can change.

Well I am totally drained from the weekend's festivities and from playing Rocksmith so this entry will be brief. It was just some thoughts I wanted down for posterity.
