So Santa brought my 2 ½ year old daughter a set of plush Ty Beanie Baby Chipmunks.
All 6 of them, Alvin, Simon, Theodore, Brittany, Jeannette, and Elanore.
Santa brought her a lot of very expensive toys but it seems like these six little Chipmunks are among her favorites. They are adventurous little chipmunks. For their first adventure my daughter decided they were going to go camping and she put them around a campfire and told us they were roasting marshmallows.
Part of our bedtime ritual is for baby girl to do her “Princess Fairy Ballerina” dance. It is important to note that the majority of the time her daddy and I are not the intended audience, but the Chipmunks perched on top of her play kitchen (Also, one of Santa’s gifts) are the audience for whom she does her dance.
Recently as I went to check on her in her room I found the Chipmunks had taken to another form of entertainment and were now fully enjoying a game of dress-up.
This child surprises me every day. I hope she hangs on to that creative spirit as she grows up. It is so amazingly awesome (Sorry but just amazing or just awesome didn’t seem to work!) to see her grow and learn and be so creative with her play.
I will continue to update you all with the adventures of the Chipmunks as I am sure there are many more to come!
