I worked a lot in December so David did quite a lot of taking care of Kinsey. Looks like January is going to slow down.
I'm starting to implement "no". It's "no" fun! When I'm wearing my glasses she grabs for them. So I'm trying to teach her not to do that. When I tried the other day, I told her no a few times and pulled her hand away from my glasses. She kept doing it so I gave a firmer no and picked her up and sat her down. Boy, did she cry!!
Christmas was good. We didn't get her anything from us because frankly, she doesn't care! The other day I gave her my purple comb and she played with it for a good 30 minutes. We also don't need to spend any money right now. I was feeling really alone this Christmas because we didn't have any family to be around, but it turned out fine in the end. My co-worker and our sitter (same family) invited us over and we went there in the evening. They gave Kinsey so many gifts! I was shocked. Their generosity was overwhelming. Kinsey got lots of clothes, a couple toys, a baby Einstein DVD, an ornament, and a couple books. She and I got matching scarves, and my coworker gave us a gift card to Applebees and a free babysitting voucher. Awesome!
