'Tis the Season

Mom looks pretty busy, now's the time to get the beads!
Deck the halls...or baby

Our family tree

K's very own pink (yes, pink) Christmas tree

All tuckered out.

This weekend, we decided to put up our Christmas decorations, but unlike any other year, we of course had more help than we needed...K was eager to get in on the action and helped where she could. ;) As we untangled beads, she would retangle them. As we would put up ornaments, she would try to add her sweetness (otherwise known as slobber) to them beforehand. She seems to love the lights and presents under the tree. I can't wait to see what she does on Christmas day! 'Tis the season to be merry!

Happy Holidays!

The beginning of a beautiful friendship...

Today, K met her new BFF, H. Weighing 6.11 lbs and 19 in long, Baby H was absolutely precious and tiny! It takes me back to how little K really was when she was born a little over 7 months ago. Boy, time flies! Even though K wasn't really sure about Baby H today and couldn't figure out why she cried when we took the blanket off (my hot natured little princess), I'm sure this is just the beginning of a beautiful friendship. I can't wait to see them grow and have fun being little girls! :)

Taking a bite out of things

Smiling with her two front bottom teeth, while eating her puff for snack
(sorry, it's a little fuzzy due to the lighting)

YEAH!!! K finally has two teeth-she doesn't need baby dentures (ha, ha)! The first tooth we noticed break through her gums Saturday morning and the second tooth was close behind. We felt it today! Wow, two teeth in a few days! Let's hope there is a break between the others, for her sake! She has been such a trooper though. She has not been really fussy or seemed to be bothered by them. Well, just thought I would share. My sweet little baby is growing up way too fast for me!

Halloween 2009

Well, as you can tell, KEA survived her first Halloween. The week before, we had our photographer take some pictures of her in her costume and dress because we knew that we wouldn't get many (if any) good shots of her the night of due to all the things going on. Boy, we are glad we did! She was so sleepy and it was too cold to stay outside for long. She didn't know quite what to think about the other kids running up and yelling "trick or treat"-some she smiled at and some she would start to pout. Nevertheless, she was too cute in her flower costume (as short lived as it was Saturday night) as she practiced going trick or treating herself to three of our neighbor's houses. She was way more interested in all of their spooky pumpkins on their porches and her own candy bag (that lights up and makes a scary laugh when you press the side of it) than the people, but now we can say we experienced it. :)
