Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Whitney got sick to her stomach and started her Christmas vacation a couple of days early this year.  She missed her school party, but we made up for it at home once she was feeling better.  Thankfully, by Christmas day, Whit was feeling great and able to participate in all the fun.

Whitney understands all about presents and opening them at this point.  The one thing we have a little trouble with is getting her to move on to the next gift when she's unwrapped something she's really interested in.  This year in addition to some great toys and clothes, Whitney got some fun iPad games that teach about numbers and letters.  She loves playing on the iPad and hopefully she'll learn some things while she plays.  Whit also loved being around so many members of the family over the Christmas break.  Grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins all got their share of Whitney hugs.

As we look to the year ahead, Melanie and I are hoping to get to work on potty training again when Whit is off track from school in January.  We'd sure love to have Whitney make some progress in that department this next year.  Whit's also got a heart checkup coming soon.  It's been a couple of years and we need to make sure her unusual rhythm isn't causing her any troubles.  So there will be plenty of adventures coming up.  I'll be sure to share them here.  Thanks for reading and following along.  From Whitney and the family, our best wishes for a very happy new year!
