Best Christmas Present

Here is our best Christmas present! Our little Maddie. She was 11 months old yesterday. I got to be with her three days this week. She entertains me with her thirst for wanting to figure everything out. It is hard to believe someone so young and tiny can have such a BIG personality.

Her eyes are so soulful. I have never seen a baby that has such a well developed pincher grasp. She has always been able to pick up the tiniest things. She has just started to become pretty vocal. Today I was trying to get her go to sleep and she had her head kinda laying on me and she started jibbering away and then looked up at me and laughed. She did this several times as if she were telling me some jokes. I wish I knew what was in her little head. She is so adorable.

Next Christmas she will be talking and walking. I better start saving up for some presents because she will know what Christmas and her Birthday mean by age 2, or at least more so than this year. I hope I don't spoil her too much, or at least in a way that would be bad for her.

Awww. Go ahead and spoil her. It's a luxury we couldn't have with our kids and the major benefit of being a grannie. Thats if you don't count listening to baby jibberish as the number one benefit. Is she yawning in that last picture? She is so cute in her Christmas finery!

Hi Brenda,

What a beautiful little girl! Just adorable! Enjoy her, for she will grow up faster than a wink.

Christmas Hugs!

She is so beautiful! I love her little Christmas Dress. She's about the age of my youngest... Sophie

She is a cutie for sure. And Gramma's are meant to spoil their grandchildren. That's the fun part of being a Gramma anyway. Like Renie said, enjoy them now because they grow up VERY fast.

What a cutie pie!! And look at those tiny little adorable feet!

psst... that's what grandparents are for... for spoiling little ones so they know for sure they are loved and are important. Just start saving your money. Spoiling, if you're going to do it right, is not cheap.

Your granddaughter is adorable Brenda! Great photos! 8-)
As far as spoiling goes, spoil her with the times you spend with her, and the unconditional love you give to her. They are your best gifts you could ever give her, and it's all free.... 8-)

Oh Brenda - she is such a little beauty! I know exactly how much you adore her. It only gets better. They just steal your heart and soul. And I wouldn't want it any other way!

Grandparents are supposed to spoil! That's our job. And we can let them have their way......just because we want them to be happy all of the time! Oh....yes we can!!!!!!
