We decided that this year we would put the Christmas tree up whilst Ethan was in bed. I used to love putting the Christmas tree up with my mum when I was younger but we don’t feel that Ethan is ready to help us just yet. So our Saturday night was spent putting up the tree whilst watching the final of ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here!‘, I was very pleased with the result.
I was very excited when we got up this morning to show Ethan the tree, so excited that I caught my foot on the baby gate on the way down the stairs in the rush to turn on the lights before Ethan made it into the front room.
Ethan wasn’t sure what to make of the tree and circled it a few times not sure what it was for. We pointed out different objects on the tree which them made him brave enough to inspect the items himself.
All through the day Ethan has looked at the tree every now and then trying to work it out. He has also had fun taking off different decorations and giving them to us or putting them in different places on the tree. If we sing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star‘ for him he will also go and get one of the star decorations off of the tree for us.
I’m sure next year this funny looking addition in the front room will mean so much more to our little man.
