15 months this week!

my dearest little o, on Saturday you turn 15 moths! The same day as Nana Bell's Birthday. I can't believe how much you have grown in just over a year. You really are turning into such a beautiful little girl. You have your own pe

rsonality shining through! As Mrs. Pricilla says, "she is a fiesty little one".

Above (with Daddy), we went to your very first concert at The Getty Gardens. You had so much fun, sitting and dancing to the lyrics of Francis England. After the show, she past right by us and you kept waving your hand saying bye bye.

Up above is your first drawing from school. I would have liked to be a fly on the wall watching you create this. Did you try and eat the crayons first? Did your teachers help you draw? Did you yell and throw the crayons on the table-who knows!

Here are your new boots! You were so happy once I put them on your feet. you walked around and clapped your hands. Then we walked right into school. Yep-that's right Mommy didn't carry you in. You held my hand and walked down the hall. You even waved to a couple of mom's walking by. When we got to your room, we walked in, I took your boots off and you walked over to meet Mrs. Shanti! What a difference from just a few weeks ago, when you would cry and cling to me before I left you.

Even though I miss you dearly each day, while I work, I know it is good for both of us that you are in good hands at school. You even come home singing "Badha, badha, badha" while tapping your hands on your upper thighs. You are such a thriving, sweet, amazing, friendly & wild chicky chick!

New moves


I'm not sure which is more funny on this last video. Sadie rubbing her back underneath the sofa or Olivia pretending to nap on Sadie's bed!

Cure for teething

little o had a fever today, I think it was due to teething. My Pediatrician says it is an old wives tale, that it is just a coincidence that the babies will run a fever at the same time as teeth are coming in. But almost every mom I know will disagree. So other than having a fever, she was her usual happy self at daycare, playing with her friends. When we got home, I took out one of her favorite homemade yogurt popsicles from the freezer! She sat in the happiest silence for say 10 minutes and ate her pop, made from plain yogurt, strawberries, banana and milk. Oh, and it seems most every Friday, Ms. Pam and Ms. Shanti like to give you cute new hairdo's-I cant decide if I like this one or the pigtails better.
