Circle the Wagons

We took Matea out for her first spin in the wagon today and she seemed to like it best when Bella was pulling her. And of course Bella enjoyed sprinting around the block with her while I screamed at her to slow down and tried to keep up with them.

More Christmas and portraits

Even more pics...

More birthday and Christmas

More pics

Sorry it's been so long

Yes, I realize I haven't updated in almost a month but we've been busy with Christmas and Bella's birthday. Bella's now 17 and Matea is 15. Ok, they haven't grown up that quickly, but almost. Today is Bella's 3rd birthday and Matea is 5 1/2 months. Matea started sitting up unassisted a few weeks ago and after some tough love from Mommy and Papa, she's only waking up 2 times a night (instead of 5-6 times) and is spending most of the night in her own bed. Bella had a great Christmas and is already talking about preparing for next Christmas Eve. We gave her a Fisher Price digital camera for Christmas and she's been busy snapping pictures. We now have a lovely album of crotch shots and posed stuffed animals. She did take a beautiful close up of a diet pepsi can, making her Mommy beam with pride. She's quite the storyteller and has started using words like "actually" and "in my whole life". When Steve was putting up the Christmas tree, Bella said, "Papa, I could just die if you don't put the tree up." I think we're in for a dramatic next few years.
Make sure to scroll up to see all of our pics from the last month.
