Maggie rocked the plane as usual--not so much as a tiny squeak out of her. There was LOTS of squeaking out of her parents though when we landed to find half our luggage had not made the trip with us. After settling in the cousins open their gifts from each other (except Eamon since his gift was sitting in our lost luggage). Maggie got a big My Little Pony.
But....the rest of the day was smooth and worked out to be quite fun. Maggie enjoyed the ducks and such at the pond/rose garden, she went NUTS over the birds flying around the park eating everyone's dropped food (she just kept saying, "peep, peep!" and pointing), she loved the kids play area and even enjoyed the carousel.
We spent the next day laying low at the resort swimming and such. Our luggage finally joined us in Florida! Maggie took a while to warm up to the idea of swimming but finally remembered she loves the water.
Saturday morning we spent more time just hanging out at the resort's sand box and playground before nap. Maggie also busted out with a new one--she said her name for the first time! It was so sweet and both Patrick and I looked at each other and asked, "did she just say her name??". This was Epcot Center day.
After another exhausting day of nonstop fun we crawled back to our condo and quickly packed up to leave bright and early the next day for home.
Sunday night we all slept like ROCKS after a long day of travel and Maggie rejoiced anew over her Christmas gifts. Now we can all take a deep breath and start a new year.
