Baby J's 1st Christmas!

While baby J's Mummy is usually super excited about weddings, baby births, birthdays, Christmas, etc, her daddy is usually not as enthusiastic about celebrations of any sort. Mummy's the sort who goes, "OMG yesss we should have a party... Let's make it a THEME party! A Christmas party without a theme is not a Christmas party!! Oooo let's get sparklers!!..." (this could go on and on with super fired-up excitement). Daddy on the other hand is the sort who goes, "What's there to celebrate? Let's just eat and go home." Super 'pour cold water' (direct translation from the Chinese phrase which means to dampen other people's spirits).

So you can imagine my surprise when as we walked pass some Christmas trees, the hubby suddenly said, "Hey shall we get a Christmas tree?" I was like, "What? I keep asking you to get a Christmas tree for our house and you said no. Why this year?"

"Baby's first Christmas mah," was his reply, "must make it a good one for her. Must have a tree so we can put all her presents under it."

So get a Christmas tree we did.

All our presents beside our Xmas tree - can you spot your gift to us?

Ok granted that it is a tiny tree. We figured a small one will suffice since baby's so small, she wouldn't realise it anyway. We'll probably buy a bigger one in future when she's older =)

But now come to think of it with all our presents combined, it's almost overpowering the tree! Thanks to all for your generosity and love, we really appreciate it!

So anyway, hubby said that we should all open our gifts only on Christmas morning. As it was time for baby's nap after her morning feed, the hubby and I went ahead and opened our presents first.

I like all of my Christmas presents this year (thanks peeps!) but there were 2 that stood out from the rest. The first was a scrapbook for newbies given by my good friends Mr & Soon-to-be-Mrs P.

I love scrapbooking because it is so pretty and creative but have never been really good at it 'cos I didn't know how to go about doing it. But this album is so great because it gives you a step-by-step guide and everything is pre-cut for you. So convenient and perfect for a busy mother like me! 


The other present (or more like two presents) was from the hubby!

Love ya dear, so touched! =)

Anyway, when baby woke up from her nap, we got her to open her presents. She has many presents this year thanks to generous and doting grandparents, grandaunts, 姨姨 (maternal aunt), 叔叔 (paternal uncle) and friends.

"These are mine ok... ALL mine!"

Baby loved opening every single one. Which kid does not like presents?

Her favourite? "Our present!" declares her daddy.

It was a great first Christmas for baby J, although I think we enjoyed it more than she did.
