This is my Lovey.  Twirling, whirling through the holidays – this is the image I will think about when I think about Christmas 2009.  This was the first year Lovey “got” Christmas, and it made everything more festive – the tree was twinklier, the fire cozier, the old, tired holiday songs had new life through her new ears.

Seeing her bound down the stairs on Christmas morning was extraordinary – and I can tell you that I haven’t enjoyed the holidays this much since Santa visited me many moons ago.  By far, her favorite gift from Santa was a digital camera, and she has been snapping photos for a week now like she is our little in-house Stieglitz.

I thought I’d share her world, from the two-foot-tall perspective.  My husband and I are finding it quite entertaining.  While many of the photos are of little toes, some are downright surreal and artistic.  And, still, others show the way life looks to a 3-year-old. . .big and fun and sometimes scary!

Happy New Year, dear readers! From all of us at My Mom Genes – we hope 2010 is your best year yet!  Enjoy!

Smile, Mom!
