Our Lives are Made of Many Moments....

This is one of my favorite pictures of the whole year! 
Haha, this makes me laugh so hard! I love the expression! And Milah loves glasses :)

I was taking out the camera to snap a picture of her when she ate soap! She coughed and sputtered and it went up her nose. What a face! 

Her favorite activity yet...drumming! 

Her favorite food lately...spaghetti! "buggehhhhiii"

She has been teething and she soaks everything in her crib with drool. The sheets, the blankets, and her coat! One morning I pulled her out of bed and we had to get it on film. You can see the wet parts? Yeah. We do a lot of laundry 'round here!

Check out the hair, man! Dan always calls it "mad scientist hair"

She's into the high heels! I remember a pic of me when I was little that looks so similar...I'm wearing my dad's boots that go up to my thighs! 

The budding photographer (left). She found the bandana in the laundry and put it on just like Danny wears it! 

Left: At the local good will she found a dream hat. What I love is the pregnant belly. Right: Oh yes! Do you remember that first time you shaved using Daddy's razor? Pretty special! She asks for it some days by saying "bzzzzzzz?"

Fun at the toy store. Oh, and we tried cronuts -- these things have been selling out in NYC. A man only makes a limited amount every day and the people buy them and sell them on ebay and such. 

 Fresh figs and bird of paradise on our walk around Palo Alto

Love the belly!

 36 week ultrasound of our Brielle! We can't wait to meet her so so soon!

A burrito Daddy size and baby size!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We had so much fun decorating for Christmas! Thanks mom for the tree and the presents :) My mom has this fun tradition of always wrapping the presents so beautifully. Luckily we didn't miss out this year. She wrapped these herself and sent them to us. 

 Dan has been building me fires lately in the evenings. We love watching them flame and burn. The first night we listened to Nickel Creek, one of our favorite bands. What happy memories these will be!

 We girls buying Danny some gifts.

You got it down girl! She knows how to carry those big bags!

Oh yeah, that excited and terrified look you get as soon as you're placed on Santa's lap!

Family Adventures near Palo Alto

One of the best known bird watching places is close by our house. We had a fun hiking adventure.

Daddy took her to see a real live Bobcat at the Zoo

Milah, are you in there? There you are! 

Stanford Shopping Mall

Walking the streets where we live :)

Love the hat, Milah! She is all about accessorizing.

Milah's Artsy!

Milah loves to paint! It's one of her favorite things to do. Of course, she gets that from me! Lots of the time she comes up to me and says "paint! paint! paint!" she painted every day for a little spell.

Painting with colored shaving cream in the bath.

Finger painting outside. She's hilarious because she doesn't like to get dirty. She wouldn't do much finger painting, just tried to wipe the paint on herself to clean it off but then it would be on her tummy and leg. The painting ended with some tears. Haha. 

She does love coloring with chalk!

She especially loved this activity! Fill a squirt bottle with white vinegar and food dye. Then give her some baking soda and little teaspoons. Combine for a lot of fun "bubbles!"
