We are having fun this Christmas with a toddler. Lotty did consent to wearing a very pretty dress for our family portrait (as well as for a party at Auntie Kathryn and Baba Dan's house) and has had fun trimming the tree. She is quite skilled at that, as you can see by the video below. Lotty also went on her first hike today. We estimate that she walked for about half a mile, holding Daddy and Grammy's hands, before wanting to get into the backpack carrier. Grammy and Grandpa Brown were quite proud, as were Mama and Daddy. Merry Christmas!
