Lowe's is a "hard" sacrifice for me since our family always cuts down a tree at a Christmas tree farm. However, last year, we attempted to do that here in Indiana and the tree farms were awful and expensive. So we ended up at Lowe's. We are trying to be as tight as possible with our money this year so we have a much smaller tree than normal. I just LOOOVE big, huge, fat, trees!
I was very curious to see what Mekonen would do about the tree. We set up and decorated the tree after he was in bed. The next morning, he woke up, and after having his bottle made his typical routine rounds across the house. He went over to his toys and knocked down all the towers I set up every night after he goes to bed. Then he puts a few balls in the peek-a-block dinosaur toy, and heads over to the front window. He pulls him self up and bangs on the window, yelling and babbling. This will sometimes entertain him for up to 10 minutes at a time. It's so funny. So he did all of that without noticing the tree. I was sitting there with the camera, waiting to see what he would do when he saw it. After a few bangs on the window, he looked to the right and this is what happened.....
First.... he spots the tree, and slowly looked at the tree from the bottom all the way up to the top. Second... He starts out on a mission to find out what this thing is.
Fifth...couldn't get a good enough look back there, so he goes around the zebra to try again. Haha. (And Macy at the front of the picture making sure he doesn't destroy the tree).It was so cute to see him discover the Christmas tree. He has grabbed an ornament or two off the tree, but other than that he surprisingly, doesn't really bother it at all, which I'm so glad for! :)
