December 6th Stocking!
Noah J got his first December 6th stocking this week. It is a German tradition my mom did as a child, and then my brother and I got when we were kids. The coolest part is that you get 2 stockings - one early and one on Christmas! woo hoo! And this one comes in a real stocking so its too cool! We always had toys, fruit, nuts, and Christmas chocolates in ours, so we did our best to find stuff Noah J could have in each of these categories.
We've been collecting stuff for it for a while now so I was very excited to give it to him. We woke up 30 minutes before him and snuck into his room and put it in his crib. We thought we would hear him get really excited when he woke up but he just cried like normal. When we went in there he hadn't taken anything out, I guess cause he couldn't figure out how to! Once we showed him the stuff inside he was very excited, although a bit confused. We took him to the living room to finish opening everything up. He was super excited about the cell phone with the fish on it, being able to eat a pear all by himself, and sucking on the gold chocolate coins. He also loved the slinky, which not to our surprise was ruined approximately 30 minutes after receiving it. We had so much fun we can't wait till next year!
