There was something quite special seeing Christmas through her eyes, almost like experiencing it for the first time all over again. There was a tremendous sense of wonder and joy the whole day.
After opening gifts at home we went over to my in-laws to open yet more gifts and to spend the rest of the day with them. It was their first Christmas with a grandchild so it was quite special for them as well. I also wrote in my Daddy/Daughter journal for the first time since July! (Around the time she was born my wife & I both started writing letters to our daughter in hardback journals with the intention of giving those journals to her when she's old enough to enjoy them. It's just a little something special we want her to have when she starts on her journey into adulthood, a bit of reminder of her youthful innocence in the hopes she'll hold on to that innocence as long as possible). At any rate I was long overdue in writing a letter.
Looking ahead to the new year, I'm looking forward to seeing a whole new string of firsts for my daughter, to experience things for the first time all over again as I watch them through her eyes with wonder and amazement.
