It's Starting to Look a Lot Like Christmas

I think this little girl knew what we were doing as soon as we got out of the car.
This was her reaction when we got to the Christmas Tree Farm.

Today she was in such a silly mood. Silly face, silly sounds, silly personality. I loved it!

This mom's not afraid of a little dirt.
Especially since I know how much this little girl loves it.

More silly faces.


I figured out the self timer on our camera.
So we attempted a family picture after I got done decorating the tree.

Finished product.

Christmas Wreath.
The only craft I got done over vacation. I had aspirations of doing many...

Harlow sitting by the Christmas in her PJ's.

Again with the silly faces.

Harlow, can Mommy have a kiss?
We do this little routine daily and she is starting to get the hang of it.
She sits very still when I pucker up to give her a kiss and she always smiles after.
We have also been working on blowing kisses. Haven't gotten very far with that yet though...

She is so close to crawling. She has mastered taking a couple of forward crawls and then plopping back down.

Uh oh.

This was to be expected...
Hopefully she doesn't pull the whole thing down.


No More Baby Baths

As you can see, Harlow has decided that taking a bath sitting up is way more fun.
Yesterday we packed up the baby bath tub and put it in storage in the garage.
We bought a no-slip grip mat for the bath tub and now she takes baths like a big girl.

Christmas is Coming!

I love baby clothes, it's a sickness.
But more than that, I love baby tights!

Harlow makes a great model.

Cartoons With Big Brother

In the morning while Pete and I get ready for the day, Harlow usually rolls around and plays with her toys on a blanket (or "helps" me with my make-up).
Every once in awhile, Buddha will sit and watch cartoons with Harlow.
Like he's babysitting.

Serious cartoon face.

Just hanging out.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Very uncommon of me...
I didn't take any thanksgiving pictures.
I know!
I'm such a bad mother.
I forgot to document Harlow's first Thanksgiving.

My brother captured this family picture with the automatic timer on his camera.

It will have to do.

One good picture, out of about a hundred.


Now, on to Christmas!
(I promise to document that,I swear.)

iPhone pHun :)

I haven't updated from my iPhone in awhile. And that's where all the spontaneous pictures are.

Harlow and her Ojiichan:

The first time at home that she really got the hang of pushing up to her hands and knees. Daddy was out of town so I did my best to capture it for him.

Buddha is beginning to act a little more comfortable around Harlow.

Shopping fun. Winter is coming!

Swim class with Daddy.

Look at that arch! She's going to make a great gymnast (if she wants).

Dad and his iPad. Starting her young.

Harlow loves Buddha. She screams with excitement when we She first sees him when we get home or wakes up from a nap.

Such a funny face!

Buddha and Harlow again. Someday they will be best friends...

Bulldog kisses are gross.

She pulled herself up to her knees on her own and held it. So I stood her up and she held it for a second or two... Before she fell.

Watching cartoons in bed with mom on a Saturday morning.

Such a pretty rainbow. It's nor often you see the entire thing.

My favorite time of day.

Happy Target shopper over here!

Today was wet and rainy, so when dad went to work for a few hours, we cuddled in the rocking chair and watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

It's Christmas at our house (sort of). We don't have our actual tree up yet but I did put all the other decorations out today. I usually wait until the day after Thanksgiving but I just couldn't hold out any longer.
