Holiday Preview

I think my "mom" gene has fully developed now, because this week I had the uncontrollable urge to buy Aissa a holiday dress and haul her to the Sear's Portrait Studio. I know, I know, I'm probably biased, but ISN'T SHE SO BEAUTIFUL?

"Toddlers and Tiaras" audition shot
This old thing? Yeah, it's red corduroy with bows and buttons!

Who, me? Oh, I'm just going sledding in my pretty, pretty holiday dress...

Apparently I am a rookie portrait mom because A. I didn't have more than one outfit for scene changes and B. I didn't buy shoes. I thought it was pretty good that I got it together in time to have holiday photos!

Aissa had her first spaghetti dinner last night.

Viva Italiano!

The Welcome Committee

Every morning, Cooper and Aissa wait for Grandma and Grandpa to come upstairs....of course Cooper insists on first dibs at petting!

Aissa loves Cooper
And Cooper is learning to tolerate Aissa

First Haircut

Aissa's babysitter Jillian is also a hairstylist, so she did the honors of giving her the first haircut!

She loves Jillian and we are so lucky to have her help out!
How do you like my face-framing layers?

Bath Time Milestone

Sometimes it's the little things...Aissa has found a new reason to love bath time--sitting up and playing with her rubber ducky!
