Happy Holidays!!

Hi all! What a busy time of year! I love the holidays but hate how they seem to fly by! Shopping isn't as easy with a baby! I have been way behind this year and then when I do have gifts...finding time to wrap is another story! One picture is our last shopping adventure. Kaia loves to be facing out to see the world! Obviously, she was pooped to say the least!

News on the Kaia front...she now weighs over 15 pounds and has started solids! She still isn't sure what the heck we are doing but she gets a little better every day! She still doesn't even take an entire teaspoon of rice cereal but it has been fun watching her with this new "experience". You should see the faces! And she seems so tiny in her chair. Sean snapped one of the pictures when she was mid-smile...she looks so funny!

We hope you have a fantastic holiday! We are hosting Christmas Eve this year but Sean is working Christmas day. I can't believe 2009 is almost upon us! Pretty soon we get to meet our new little niecephew!! So much to look forward to!

Fun Weekend

So sorry it has been a while since my last post! I started back at work the day after Thanksgiving so we have been adjusting to our life as a "working family"!! Work sucks, especially knowing that I have a really cute baby and hubby at home without me!! This weekend was our first days off together in over a week and we had fun!!

We cut down our tree yesterday and Kaia joined in on the fun! It was cold but she was all bundled and I wore her on my chest as Daddy cut down our tree. We got to have cider and cookies and Kaia even sat on Santa's lap! I guess that was more for me than for her but she could've cared less! At least she didn't cry!! Oh and how could I forget.....we started our day in the best way possible. We got to go play with puppies!!! By now, everyone knows we lost our beloved Griffin the day after we brought Kaia home. Well....we are in the market for a new fuzzball! However, since I have a 4 1/2 month old, right now isn't the optimal time! But, we have met the mommy of our future golden! Right now, the baby is just a twinkle in his mama's eye, but he'll be coming home with us mid August. Just around the time when Baby K is starting to walk so not only will I be chasing her, but a cute little pup as well! There is never a good time to get a puppy so I guess we'll just go for it (in a few months though!).

Today we went to Sean's Dad's house for a Trainor Christmas gathering. It was nice to see people we don't get to see very often and we had a great day. Kaia was very good but not in the smiliest of moods for some reason!! I'll share a few pics from the weekend. I can't believe the countdown to Christmas is already on; guess I better get moving on my shopping!!
