Well, it's official. The pacifiers are all gone. Thanks, Santa. Lydia loaded them up in her stocking on Christmas Eve with Madeline's help. In return, Santa brought her a Dora the Explorer toddler bed (along with just a few other items for her and Madeline). Madeline is most excited about her Baby Alive doll that Santa brought and has been doing lots of feeding and diapering. Yes, she really pees and poops!
And here is a picture of Lydia stealing the show at the Christmas Eve service. She's dressed as an angel and the closing song was Angels We Have Heard On High. What's interesting about this is that just minutes before the service, she was having a tremendous fit....nothing or nobody could make her happy. But when it was showtime, she changed her tune and cooperated, walking up to the front of the church with Madeline and me. David was a wise man. When it was time for us to sit down, she decided she liked it better on stage. Go figure.
