Olivia's "first" Christmas

She had a tough incident yesterday but is doing fine.

Whenever I squat down to take a photo at her level, she often squats down with me as well.

While Sarah was in the kitchen the other day she kept hearing Olivia say "uh-oh." When Sarah came to investigate, this is what she found.

Christmas has been a wonderful opportunity to discover new toys and re-discover old ones. Thank you to everyone for your generosity! Here is a sample of pictures from Christmas. You'll see she's wearing many different outfits, partly because we spread the holidays out and opened many gifts as they came, and also because she was so excited by her outfits that we had to keep trying things on. Enjoy:

December Visitors

We were lucky this month to have visits from my (Dave's) mom and then my dad. In early December my mom was able to arrange a weekend layover on her way home from meetings in Washington DC. My dad was here until yesterday, spending Christmas week with us. Here are some photos:

I know it's been a long time since we've updated the blog; sorry for that! Here are a month's worth of pictures for you to enjoy (in chronological order).

New looks

Last week I got a new hearing aid (finally) and Sarah got a new haircut. My two girls only get cuter and cuter.

Jumping Olivia

Jumping along with her dvd

The funny thing about this video is that for a few months now she has been saying "Papy" (grandpa) everytime she sees this BBQ sauce. Now she's even started kissing him. Notice that if she turns the bottle around she finds Nanny! What a great bottle. What do you think, does this look like my (david's) dad or Sarah's mom?

New pics

Her halloween doggy costume. She insisted on wearing Sarah's brown hat

she loves moving her elmo chair everywhere

She loves her new froggy boots and we love this dress my (david's) mom made.

our 2 new craigslist chairs

The smallest turtle we've ever seen

We're already busting out the winter gear

The view from our front door - Olivia heading straight for the swings

No canvas can contain her artistic talent

More dancing videos

Nothing gets her moving like the nutracker

It just so happens that the Beastie Boys is next on itunes after one of her children's albums, so we end up dancing to this song quite often. As you can see, she loves it!

Notre petite artiste en herbe aime beaucoup plus jouer a la maison que dessiner!

juste avant d'aller faire la sieste...
O dance avec son papa!
