1. Put up the Christmas tree
Yesterday we put up our fibre-optic Christmas tree (at the START of December! We usually wait a week out before Christmas!) because we couldn’t wait for our little man to see the colourful lights on the tree. Of course by the time we got home afterwards for him to see it at night time it was too late – but tonight it will be MAGIC! Not only that, but of course we started putting some baubles up on the tree, and I got to make some personalised baubles at our Messy Christmas church service (I was pretty chuffed with my efforts, if I do say so myself!). One day Starfish will appreciate the effort, I’m sure…
2. Get a gorgeous little Christmas outfit (or 3)
We all know the one of the best things about having babies is you get to dress them up in fun things (am I right?!). So hubby and I couldn’t RESIST dressing up the little man in different Christmas outfits for different occasions. Obviously you can’t just have ONE Christmas outfit, as there are multiple Christmas functions to attend (and if there are explosions of the poo variety, you want another festive outfit to change him into). Nailed it.
