Riker is still too young to wake up crazy early on Christmas morning.
However, after being up all night with a newborn, 7:30am feels way too early!
Riker woke up asking for cookies
(he was very distraught the night before when we left the cookies out for Santa…Riker really didn’t want to share his cookies!).
We finally convinced him that presents were better than cookies, so we headed downstairs to open our gifts.
Riker’s reaction to opening presents was perfect.
Each time he was handed a new gift, he would loudly exclaim “what is it!?” over and over.
And once the present was opened, he wanted to play with it right away and didn’t care that there were more gifts to open!
Thanks to our parents, TJ and I both received very generous gifts.
And we can’t forget about Miss Olivia.
She scored some sweet gifts too, even though she might not seem to care.
The rest of our day was spent lounging around in our new pajamas, playing with new toys, and eating the candy from Riker’s stocking while he napped.
We missed all our family, but enjoyed spending a quiet Christmas with our little family.
