Naked on a Snowy Day

 The other day was cold and snowy, which meant we stayed in almost all day. It also made my bedroom super bright and the perfect place to take a few photos of Elise for a little work project. 
Her eyes here are the very best! I mean that more from a photo point than a beauty one, since I've never been great at capturing eyes in my pictures.
 Always chewing on something, the little biter.
Points to you if you can spot Jacob's shotgun...

9 Months

 So this is where we are at nine months. She is almost to the age where she's been outside as long as she was inside and I have never been more aware of how fast the days go by. 
Not only can she pull herself to standing, she has 8 VERY, VERY sharp teeth, and she can say "dada", as well as crawl across the room now. 

Jacob may as well have hung the moon for her, despite the fact that he bit her the other day. Yes, he bit her! Because, and I quote: "She almost bit me, so I bit her." I think the key word in that there sentence is almost, my little friend. He also managed to knock a Demdaco angel onto her head this morning when he was trying to throw a Cheerio into something on the mantle and knocked it over. I was blow drying my hair for all of 30 seconds and maybe this is why I should start attachment parenting. Since the 4 year old is proving to be a bit crazy on some days. 

But then he proves himself when I need someone to entertain her after she wakes up too early from her nap, and they both sit in the car patiently when I'm gathering all the items we need for an adventure out of the house. He can't wait for her to get bigger and play with him and I can't assure him enough that those days are coming. So much faster than I'd like.

Fresh Out of the Shower

 A few weeks ago, we had a little dance party before bed right after bath time.  You can see the sheen of Aquafor on Elise's head and Jacob's little face is red from the hot water. It almost looks like a sunburn, actually.

 He's taken to memorizing some of our favorite songs and performing them for us on a regular basis.  It's all kinds of awesome.
These are some serious eyebrows. He may look like his daddy, but the boy got all of his crazy expressions from me.

You're welcome!
