With her being so interested in the tree, I made a felt tree on the back of the door. There are felt ornaments with velcro on the back so Elinor can decorate it herself. We used to make boards like this at the daycare all the time. I think I'm going to start keeping different boards up through out the year for her.
Her and Henri love it. Henri likes to pull them down, hid them and then put them back up. Elinor would only pull them all down for awhile. She now will start putting them up. While I was downloading these pictures, she came up behind me to see them. She walked away and when I looked up again she was at her tree moving ornaments around. What a smart baby!
Did you get a chance to read Elinor's 12 month update that Dave wrote yesterday? It was so sweet and I hope to get Dave to write more often on here. Read it here
