So today the doorbell rang with a delivery. Of course it was while Alexia was napping, but she didn't even notice thank goodness. Some of her birthday gifts came in, yay. I stuck them in the closet with her trike so she wouldn't try to play with them. She has this incredible eye for seeing anything new in a room and attacking. Nick and I won't start building what goes with these gifts until February, so I will just have to wait to get started. I am not very good at waiting so I have been keeping busy doing online research and making lists. Some are to do lists and some are shopping lists. I am hoping something will be delivered into our mailbox tonight too. Our mailman doesn't come until around 6 pm so I have to wait some more.
The Stinky Cheese Man book was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I remember buying it at a book fair in elementary school. It is a fun twist on the traditional fairy tales. If Alexia has inherited either Nick's or my sense of humor she will love it. The tickle monster kit is a book and a set of monster mittens for tickling, I can't wait to see if Alexia likes it. I think she will. She is already good at tickling and blowing raspberries.
