Meeting Santa

Yesterday Francis had a ped day so we spent most of the day at the mall. The highlight of the day (for the kiddos) was seeing Santa. I wondered how Naomi would react to "The Big Guy". She actually walked right to him when he held out his arms to her, but when he sat her on his lap it was just more than she could stand. This is why she is on Francis' lap. Overall I don't think she was afraid of him, she just didn't want to sit on his lap. After the picture, Santa gave the kids sticker books from the Ratatouille movie. For 3 hours, Naomi had a death grip on her book. She was so happy with that book - I think she somehow realized it came from someone quite special.

I'm the baby

I think this is a cry for help. Poor kitty never gets any attention anymore. I think he's trying to say "I'm the baby, pay attention to me!". Of course Naomi was not happy - not one bit and whined until the cat got out of HER chair.

Happy day!

Today is my husband's birthday! Happy birthday honey!! I tried to get a picture of him but no luck!

Also, today Naomi turns 13 months!! Wow, it's going by so fast!!! Here she is ready to go out and check out the snow.
Yesterday it snowed for the first time so that got me in the mood to do a little holiday decorating!! It's amazing what you can do with some branch snippings from your own backyard!
Here is a picture of our cat, Booger (long story) doing "the bridge". Bad kitty! :o)Wishing all my American Blogger friends a very happy Thanksgiving tomorrow!!

Busy, busy, busy!!

I'm falling behind on updating this blog!! 'Tis the busy season! Shopping, decorating, etc... :o)

I am already fed up with the cold weather - dressing a baby in a snowsuit, hat, boots and mittens every time you need to step out the door gets really old! Ever try and wrestle mittens on a 12 month old? Not a pretty sight!! Actually, in 2 days she will be 13 months old! Wow, where is that 9 month old baby I adopted?? Time is just flying by!
A few days ago we got the kids dressed up and took pictures to try and get a holiday picture of the 2 of them. Wow, what a job that was!!! Here's a cute little preview of Naomi. Naomi is getting better at walking - the video below was taken last week but I thought it was so cute I had to share it.

On the move ...

Naomi is walking!!! :o)

Yesterday at my mom's she took her first unaided steps of her own free will - of course I missed the whole thing because I was in the bathroom!

Today we went to an indoor playground with friends Elisa, Thomas and Zoe. Naomi walked all over the place!! She kinda walks like a drunk zombie, but it's a start! I tried to get some pictures of Naomi and Zoe together - wasn't easy as they are both busybums!!!

Proud Mama ...

Yesterday I was doing a little shoppy with Naomi at H&M (a trendy store with good music). Naomi was fed up of being in her stroller so I had let her out and she was walking and holding the back of the stroller. As I am checking out some cute clothes I see a group of women nudging each other and pointing to Naomi - so I look over and Naomi is doing the little booty dance (as seen in the last post. That's my girl :o

Bullet post (sort of)

Not sure who started the bullet posts but I'm jumping on the bandwagon.

· I’ve been busy calling / visiting daycares. It is really hard to get daycare here as it is subsidized ($7/day) So you have to go thought this process of getting your name on a million lists.
· Naomi is still sick but getting better. I am getting really fed up of the nose wiping!!!
· A HUGE congratulations to Abby’s mom on her referral!! Whoohoo!!

· Naomi is has taken her first steps!
· Naomi loves to climb the stairs – if I forget to put up the gate she is upstairs in a flash!
· Naomi laughs a lot. She kinda sounds like a squeaky toy sometimes – her laugh is hilarious.
· Francis has taught Naomi that farts are very funny.
· Francis also taught her that bad table manners are very funny.
· Every time Naomi takes a sip from her sippy cup she says “Ahhhhhhhh…”

· I dropped my camera and broke the battery door – sigh. Now I have to tape it to keep the batteries from falling out. I’m procrastinating taking it in for repair because I’ll be cameraless for 3 weeks!
· I was at the mall today and heard Christmas music. It made me smile. :o)
· 4 months ‘ till Hawaii! :o)
· 5 months ‘till back to work. :o(
· I can’t get Elmo’s la la la la song outta my head.
· Naomi says “hi” when I get her up from her nap – so cute!!

BUSTED - caught hogging the remote!!!

No drinking and driving Naomi!!
