December 2006


We’re a little busy around here, but before the year ends I want to wish a late Merry Christmas to all my friends and relatives flung far and wide around the globe!!!! Happy New Year everyone!!!!

I’ve got this problem with my hair. It’s straight as a stick in the front:

And in the back it’s curly like Mom’s:

Here’s a close up:


I’m not sure how to manage this, any suggestions?

I told Mom we’d find something to spice up the montage. I’ve gotten much more mobile these days, especially since Mom and Dad let me open my present from Grandma and Nana early!!! Check it out:

I’ve got the need for speed too, I tell ya. Once I get going at a good clip, with the wind blowing in my hair, there’s nothing more thrilling. Look at me here, totally in the zone:

Occassionally when I forget how much it hurts to fall, I’ll take my hands off the wagon and do some freestyle standing, but only for a second. Mostly I like to push the wagon back and forth across the apartment, sometimes Rag-a-muffin Girl tags along for a ride which is fine by me, she doesn’t say much, which is how I like it.

Anyway, only One More Week ‘Til Christmas!!!! I CAN’T WAIT!

Mom’s working on one of my birthday presents already – my very own photo montage (doesn’t every girl need her own montage?). Yeah it’s great and all, if a little repetitive. Can you really look at forty-odd photos of my mug? Mom seems bothered by this too because every time she watches it she starts bawling. Cheer up Mom, my birthday is still more than a month away. We’ll add some Christmas photos this month and that will really spice it up!

As you all know I’m coming up on 12 months old!!!! You know what that means? That means I’ve been around ONE WHOLE YEAR!!! Apparently when you are around for a whole year you celebrate the day of your birth, and it’s known as your BIRTHDAY. So come January 16th it will be my First Birthday!

This is a huge deal people. So huge in fact that Mom and Dad had us do a dry-run practice of my birthday celebration in November. Mom made a cake, we sang Happy Birthday and all that jazz. Except to avoid spoiling the surprize of it all, we sang Happy Birthday to Dad!! Clever idea huh? That was Mom’s idea.

So anyway, I’m all set for my Birthday. I still have to decide what my favorite cake flavor is, so Mom can bake it for me. It’s sorta difficult to decide since I’ve never had cake. I’m taking suggestions if you have any!
