The Christmas Tree is Up!

Normally, I put the tree up either right after Thanksgiving dinner or the following day.

This year, we had a family dinner scheduled for the Sunday after and needed the space.  But as soon as they were gone, it went up.

No, I don't have a picture yet.  I need to do that, but am trying to coordinate it with James being nearby and touching it.  Can't you picture that sweet moment??

Though, that may prove to be a little more difficult.

In order to avoid the over usage of the word "no", this year we put up the small 4' tree and loaded it with decorations.  It is sitting nearest the wall on top of our extended dining room table.

When James woke up on Monday, he didn't seem to notice or care it was there.  That's been the case each day.  It's on, he sees the lights, but he isn't trying to get it.

Then this morning, after we both forgot to unplug it all night, my husband made sure to unplug it before James came out for breakfast to give the lights a break.

James ate his breakfast, was let out of his high chair to play, and he stopped and looked back.  He stared at the tree, specifically the Yoda tree topper, and lifted his hand to indicate it and grunted.  Then he looked at me, looked at it again, and did it again.

So, I plugged in the lights.  He smiled and walked away.

Apparently, he has noticed it.  Now to get the camera armed and ready!
