Christmas Update - Her Favorite Present (For Now)

This is how she spent most of the day.
Christmas was a real hit.

I would post photos of present opening but they would be of me and Laura opening the presents while Lois wanders around the house, completely uninterested in whatever it was we were doing with the boxes and wrapping paper.

There are also pictures of her playing with the wrapping paper, as all young children (and big kids too - *ahem* LAURA) are wont to do but those aren't really that interesting either. Instead, let me show you her current favorite toy:
Even in the box she just kept playing with it all day. All. Day.
This is the Leapfrog "My Own LeapTop," which Lois hasn't stopped playing with since Christmas - excepting when she is sleeping or eating.

Grandpa and Grandma gifted her with this toy (along with a bunch of other stuff) and she absolutely loves it.

There's a keyboard and screen: If she types one of the letter buttons it will tell her what letter it is, what noise it makes, and an animal that starts with that letter*.

Shh. She's working!
There are other settings too but she hasn't quite figured out how to get those to work. She will, eventually, but right now we get to hear that "A is for Alligator" and "S is the first letter in Scout's name" and all the other letters. Over and over and over and over.

And over.

I love that it makes her happy, regardless of the fact that her mother and I are starting to hear it in our sleep. I love that she sits with it like we sit with our laptops, fingers poised to type. It's awesome.

It's a picture of the picture that I got made from a picture.
For now it's her favorite toy. Tomorrow her favorite toy will be something else. The next day something else. She sure did get a lot of Christmas presents from mommy, daddy, friends and family, so I doubt she'll run out of favorites any time soon!

And almost every single one makes noise. Lots and lots of noise.

How much are ear plugs?

*"Ox." Apparently the animal that starts with an "x" is "Ox."
