Are you ready for the most photos I've ever posted at once? This is to make up for the last couple of weeks with no posts at all. It's long.
She's growing up so fast and is turning into such a lovely little girl. If only we could get a handle on potty training.
She loves to sit in the bumbo.
That lip hey? It kills me.
Finally... I've been waiting for years for her to be interested in colouring and this month we finally got there. She loves her markers though her love of colouring got distracted when she figured out she could stack the markers.
Such an awesome milestone... She weighs enough to move to a booster seat and I love it. She has tons more freedom in the car and it's way easier to get her in and out.
Yet another hospital photo.. I'm sure you all love them by now. She's fine though, no infection, just a rough hospital visit.
We went out for breakfast as a family and had such a lovely time. Both girls were very well behaved.
We started using the exersaucer and she loves it, spends quite a bit of time there. She's even started jumping and playing with the toys.
She's getting so good at grabbing and bringing to her mouth. I love all this growing up, it frankly can't happen fast enough for me.
Dressed for the day.
My two girls.
We went to Magrath for their Hometown Christmas and one of the activities was fishing for toys. Catie pulled up her snowman hand puppet, took one disdainful look and declared, "I don't like it." There was no convincing her otherwise and the organizers graciously gave her something else.
We ate hotdogs, scones, apple cider, visited the chocolate fountain, went for a horse drawn sleigh ride and saw Santa. A fun night.
Grandma bought the girls Christmas dresses. Their both sparkly and leave glitter everywhere. This photo doesn't show the dresses very well so I'll try harder this Sunday when they wear them again.
Sleeping Eden in church, love that.
Happy in the exersaucer
Arms like an airplane... gymnastics has taught her all sorts of great things.
I usually take these photos after a really difficult day when a sleeping Eden is the best sight I've ever seen.
Despite her crankiness she really does smile a lot.
Still at the hospital.
This month we introduced Geoffrey and it's been amazing. She loves to hold onto something when she falls asleep, in the past it's been my fingers or the ribbon to her soother with ends in her pulling it out. Geoffrey's ears and arms and perfect for her to grab and she usually falls asleep with them clutched in her hands. We love Geoffrey.
I bought bubble bath for Catie's stocking and then couldn't wait to give it to her so I broke it out early. She loves it. Baths have become a whole new activity.
For three days in a row (until she peed on her dress, potty training is awesome) she was a princess in her sparkly dress and purple cape.
This is her new favourite place to play. She climbs in and closes the door.
Playing with Eden. She learned how to roll recently. If you put her on her back she almost instantly rolls to her tummy and then gets upset that she's there. So you flip her over and she repeats the cycle.
Finding her toes. I love when babies play with their toes.
My nap buddy
We recently discovered that our nearest Boston Pizza has kids night on Tuesday's and they hire a magician who also makes balloon animals (and hats). This Tuesday was a Christmas party with Santa and reindeer noses, colouring sheets, gingerbread houses and a Santa parade. We'll probably become frequent Tuesday visitors.
So there's our month at a glance... hopefully I"ll become a little more consistent.
