First Snow

We just got back from a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday up at my dad's house in Big Bear. It was little o's first thanksgiving and also her first time to see snow! Growing up in NY, I have so many memories of making snowballs, snow angels, snowmen, etc...and it is hard for me to believe that many kids in LA don't get to have this experience - but the thing I love about LA is that you can see snow if you want, it's just a 2 hour drive.

I bought little o a snow suit in preperation for the visit and my dad bought her her 1st pair of shearling boots. I think she really enjoyed the crisp cold air and the long nature walks with her Daddy:)

Thanks again to my sis, who completely outdid herself with creating one of the most amazing Thanksgiving meals ever!!

First Taste

This has been a long time little o a taste of her first real food! Granted it's not a healthy nutritious home cooked meal-just some bland baby cereal to start with- but thinking of all of the yummy foods I can make for her is very exciting! I don't think she loved the cereal-but she did like playing with the spoon, so maybe its a sign that she will be feeding herself in no time! We also did a video i chat with Nana Kathy, so that she was able to see her lovely granddaughter take her first slurp!

I keep thinking how amazing it is to see little o's developments and notice how her daily changes slowly reveal her true personality. It seems like so long ago, (but at the same time feels like just yesterday) that she could barely stare into my eyes and could hardly crack a smile.

Words could not express how lovely it was to see her finally smile for the first time. A real full on smile, letting me know she was a happy little baby bean. But this video shows one of the moments that I've been waiting for for a while now-a great big bout of laughter! Granted she gives us a bunch of giggles every now and then, but this one tops the cake!
