Valentine's Day 2012

Since Valentine's Day fell on a Tuesday this year we decided to put off our celebration for the weekend since the week is already wayyyy too busy and stressful. I have to say at first I wasn't too excited about even celebrating - kind of felt like one more thing to do. But I am SO glad we did and I was reminded of the importance of continuing to work on my relationship with Geoff aside from poopy diapers and baby play.

Just like last year we decided to do a Fondue Feast at home! It was delicious and just as fun, even though it didn't start until almost 8pm and we were tip toeing around the kitchen a bit!

Cheese fondue followed by chocolate fondue!

(This picture makes me laugh because of the baby saline next to our fondue pot. Yup, such is life now!)

Finger food fun

Eliana is finally into eating solids - especially finger foods! I think she'd be happy with skipping the purees all together, but mama likes to fill her belly. We have lots of fun with finger foods! Some of her faves are peas, carrots, corn, green beans and chicken. Of course, she loves puffs but that's usually a treat from daddy.

(You wouldn't know it but she was actually really sick in this picture... she's cute even when she's snotty!)

Baby Eats Camera

Another great visit

My parents came in town and we had another lovely time together. We're trying to convince them to move to Cali. No such luck so far.

But, we've got a softy on our hands, so maybe we CAN convince them...

Rewind, again... Baby's first Christmas!

Eliana was spoiled (of course) by all of her family for her first Christmas. We were lucky enough to spend it with both families, as well as have plenty of time with just our little family of three.

Her favorite part of celebrating Christmas morning at Gma and Gpa's house was eating the wrapping paper. Yummmm.

It this for me!?
