12 Days of Christmas - Day 9: Baby's 1st Christmas

It's a little hard to believe that this will be Edie's first Christmas. It's been fun seeing the season through the eyes of an almost-but-not-yet-one-year-old. She definitely loves all the music (Abe has been singing Christmas carols since October) and the lights and snow! We've taken her sledding a few times, but it's been so cold out I've mostly been bringing the snow inside for her to play with. She usually crawls into the pan of snow and happily sits there licking snowflakes off her mittens until there's nothing left but a puddle beneath her. But where was I...

Edie's first Christmas ornaments! I already made a yarn-wrapped twig monogram and a felt pie for my Edie Pie, but I wanted a couple Edie versions of my favorite ornaments we made when Abe was little. I love tiny baby hands, so of course we made one of these hand print ornaments from air dry clay. I was also lucky enough to find a good silhouette among the shots I took for our Christmas card, so I turned that into a sweet little silhouette ornament. (Double chins are the best!) If I ever make it back to the craft store I'd like to make her a first year photo cube as well, although I have no idea how I'd choose only 4 pictures! So her collection of ornaments is well under way, and I'm sure in a few years I'll look back and wonder what ever happened to those chubby fingers and double chins...
