Stacking and Puppy Presents

Campbell had his last day of MDO today and I spent the day all to myself. I went to Fayetteville and popped in Toys R Us to grab something for my Mom. I had lunch at Panera while I was down there and enjoyed my quiet lunch break to myself. I went to TJ Maxx, Homegoods and the mall then before I knew it, it was time to grab my little peanut. We came home and chillaxed for the rest of the day.
Campbell has always loved stacking blocks and now he's finding a new way to make it more exciting. He's been using his play table as a base for his stacking and he does this over and over for an hour or more every night. Scott and I just watch in amazement. We also chuckle because it's so fun and funny to watch him do it. Campbell has loved stacking blocks since before he turned one. I've noticed just this week that he's starting to sort his blocks into categories. My neighbor gave me tons of different wooden blocks that her kids no longer played with anymore. There's all different types, colors, etc and I have them all in a basket in the playroom. Now Campbell is putting them into different piles and sorting the matching ones and I'm honestly really impressed with it! It always amazes me when he starts doing something that I've never taught him. Like, how did you learn that or figure that out? A perfect example is that he grabbed all of the same blocks in the photo above and is using only those to stack with. Toddlers are fascinating and entertaining little people!! :)
I finally got around to purchasing and wrapping the girls Christmas presents because we, of course, can't leave them out!! Madison knows which presents belong to her and she absolutely cannot resist opening them. She doesn't even give the other presents so much as a sniff but the second one of her toys appears under the tree, she knows it. And wants it. Madison and Ivy unwrapped all of their Christmas presents last night. Normally I torture them and make them wait but I decided to go ahead and let them enjoy. They've been playing with them ever since!
