December 2009: 12 months old

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, the Christmas rush has left me pretty busy. I really need to learn how to shop throughout the year vs waiting until December because money and deadlines take some of the fun out of it all. Fortunately this year we are more prepared for it than we ever have been, but it has been tricky with John's loooong hours and him gone 6 days a week. Since we share a car I had to order most things online, thank you Internet! Seriously, what did people do before Internet? I actually got Christmas cards out before Christmas this year, which in years passed has never been a guarantee. And most everything that I have here is wrapped and ready to go! The tree is up and decorated, stockings hung, and Christmas pics have been snapped. I have to admit I was a little worried about putting up the Christmas tree with a cruising baby, but she only seemed interested in it the first day. I don't have any fragile type ornaments up that I feared would break and be dangerous, I was more worried about her trying to pull herself up with the branches and pulling the whole thing down on top of her. She doesn't seem to like the texture of the branches so it hasn't been an issue like I thought it might be. As far as her Christmas pics, we did the first series at my sister's house, she was in a cute little red shirt and blue jean skirt in those. For some reason we couldn't get the lighting right and struggled with either overexposed pics or blurred pics from my very busy daughter. The next day I did pics at my house, the shirt she had used from the night before was dirty so I put her in a red onesie which she promptly threw up on. I did not have any other red outfits for her so I just did some of her in her diaper with her baby legs on. I hope they do not come off as inappropriate to people. I didn't think anything of it when taking the pics, but my husband seemed a little worried about it. I think they are cute so I went ahead and used them anyways. These are some of my favorites.

Oh and my funny baby story: Since I have been spending so much time on the computer editing pics, ordering cards and presents Bailey has been getting a little annoyed by it, understandably since it's just me and her all day. But I have to get this stuff done sooner vs. later so they can arrive before Xmas and birthdays... Candi, Kobi and Bella are all December birthdays. Anyway, Bailey would come up to the computer and unplug it all ninja like. I would try to make a silly out of it and wave my finger all animated and say in a goofy voice "stop that" and then pick her up to love on her. Apparently she picked this up and is mimicking me. My best friend brought her 2 year old son, Ian, over who Bailey just adores. Most of the time they play really well together, but sometimes they get territorial over the toy situation as babies do. I caught her waiving her finger at him and saying "DAT DAT!" LOLOL

    I love her Christmas pics! Some of my favorite pictures of little Samantha and Jack are the naked ones. They're just too cute when they still have some of that baby fat on them :)

    I bet you are going to have a lot of fun with her this Christmas! I love it when they start getting the holidays figured out.

    I just love cute little baby bodies! It just makes me wanna squeeze em LOL! In reality Bailey is always in clothes because I have a ton of adorable outfits for her (Hi, I am Kayla, I am a baby clothes addict) but I have ended up with a ton of pics of her just in her diaper.... I think because she is all smiles when she is naked, it pleases her greatly.

    Yes she's totally spoiled with all the cool toys! Needing to figure out storage and organization solutions now...
