Lily actually got to open one of her own birthday presents! Thanks Amanda, Scott, Jill and Aaron!
Here’s a little random array of photos from the past week- we took the babies out to their first real restaurant meal.. Pizzeria Uno. They were pretty good! No tears at any point, although Cameron did get a little sad when the two ladies at the next table that he was enjoying looking at got up and left. They ate some veggies, then sampled a little pizza- guess which they liked better:)? I did spend a good amount of time picking things up off the floor. I may have to invest in one of those trash pickers to cut down on the bending down. (That was a joke.)
Well, we decided to take a trip to meet Santa early this week, in hopes of beating the long lines at the mall. That part, worked out perfectly. The part where the kids meet Santa and smile and laugh- not so much. Well, one baby liked him anyway. Little Benny had lots of smiles for Santa (not that we got those pictures), Cameron just sort of stared, mesmerized, and the Princess.. not a fan of the big guy. She started screaming pretty much as soon as she got in a 3 foot radius of Santa. All she wanted was to cling to mommy. The boys were sitting nicely on Santa’s lap, but Lily would have none of it. Believe me, I wanted to stay safely on the other side of the camera but my only choice if I wanted a picture of Lily was to be in it with her. Even then, she didn’t want to even turn around and face the camera. It was a very stressful 10 minutes or so, of getting the kids out of the stroller, into Santa’s arms, trying to get her to stop screaming, get a few individual pictures with Santa.. then going through 37 pictures the mall people took (about 5 of which were decent), after which, I find out that if I want more than one image, I have to pay $40. Plus an additional 10 because I took 3 (not good) pictures with my own camera. Needless to say I broke a good sweat that morning at the mall. But gosh, they looked so cute in those outfits.. we’ll definitely have to do more Christmas pictures- minus Santa.
In other updates.. the sickness is mostly gone, just some residual snot.
Cameron is getting all kinds of teeth. Two more on the bottom are coming in, so soon he will have 8 teeth!
Lily and Ben are walking with the push toys they got for their birthday- I have to work on putting videos up with my new camera!
It is actually cold here today- high of 61! OK, I know that’s not really cold, but it is for Florida:)
