Noël un cadre

The first time Mama Bear sat on Santa's lap she didn't cry, this is the second time and she was still recovering from the croup.
Mama Bear reading book that had been in the church lost and found for about 1.5 years.

And reading it to the camera too.
This was Christmas Eve, and this is what Mama Bear went caroling in...isn't she cute?

It was a 3 month size, small for her, but we managed and she makes small look good.
Christmas day in her Christmas dress before church.

Playing with empty gift boxes before church.

Grandma's keys, my favorite.

9 mois avec la croupe

In our family we like to celebrate 9 months into the world with croup. We have really been blessed to have such a healthy baby. Taking 9 months to get sick is a miracle. And yet it is so heartbreaking to see the little one feeling so yucky. So Tuesday we took Mama Bear to the doctors because of her barking cough. It also just so happened to be her 9 month birthday, she weighs 18lbs even. She is on a steroid for the bark and chilling to get rid of the cold. But here is a video of my sad baby today.

On another note, I got a new job. A dream job in comparison. I am a 10 minute walk away from work, 3 minutes in the car if I get the red light and 1.5 minutes otherwise. I can come home and nurse Mama Bear during my one hour lunch. Which means I will be home more during my daughters waking moments than before. I won't be spending so much commute time and I can teach James how to drive the clutch (now that we had a new one put in thanks to new and old home teachers). James can then take the 30 mpg car to work and I can take the 20 mpg car to work which will save us at least 100 bucks a month. This job has a wonderful camaraderie, and there are 3 Veterinarians in one place. And they offer benefits. Eat your heart out Michael (Jackson).

Les Schtroumpfs

We had a great party in honor of the Smurfs! Mama Bear was even a Smurf, baby Smurf. Thanks to all who came, and thanks to Kitty for hosting and practically planning it while I was at work. It was a blast!
