Week 02.11 - Just Another...Ahhh....Monster!

"Raaaahhhr!  HaHa funny..."
Paige loves to dress up as a Gorilla.  She finally wore the mask instead of the body suit when Grandpa Will came for a short visit.  Scary stuff.

"Thanks Auntie Tiffany and Nanna Denise!"

Paige is so very proud of and growing fond of (much to my chagrin) her new Itty Bitty Twins American Girl dolls.  Here's to hoping it doesn't stick. (and yes, her outfit matches her doll, and the boy doll is dressed in Green Bay Packers clothes...sick, I know.)

"I wanna wear my rain boots!"

Don't come between Paige and her pink rain boots, or you will live to regret it. Trust me, I speak from experience.  She doesn't understand what 20 below or Thinsulate means.

Week 02.10 - Just Another Cute Portrait

 "Oh Dad, you and your silly pictures."

It's been a while since I really tried to get Paige to sit for a formal portrait, so I figured I would give it a shot.  This was the result.  Pretty decent I think.  Outtakes below.

"I need these with me for my photo Dad."

 "Looking at the camera is SOOOOO for 1 year olds Dad."


Week 02.09 - Talk to Mor Mor and Grandpa on the 'Puter

 "Hi Mor Mor Teri and Grandpa Will!"

Paige has learned very quickly that we can video chat on the computer, and we do it quite regularly with Grandma Teri and Grandpa Will.   We should probably figure out how to actually use Skype rather than Microsoft Live Messenger, but we'll tackle that issue when we upgrade our phones and can use Skype on them too...

"I love Kitty!"

Yep.  Still loves her Kitty.

Week 02.08 - Go Bucky!

"Go Badgers you can beat...who are they playing again?"

Well, unfortunately the Badger's Rose Bowl appearance turned out to be less than we had hoped, it was still fun to spend the evening with the family, enjoy some pizza, (and some wine for the parents...).

"You look GREAT Kaija!"

Paige, Valerie and Kaija were able to spend the week visiting family in Wisconsin while I had to head back to work.  Paige thought it would be a great idea to help Kaija with some new clothes.  I think you would classify this as a great success.

Week 02.07 - Merry Christmas to All, and to All a Good Night!

". . ."

So I am a little late in posting up the Christmas photos.  I hope you can forgive me.  We had a very busy end of the year and things are just starting to settle down.  We were able to go see Santa, after having prepped Paige for about two weeks.  When she sat on his lap, she didn't have a total meltdown, but didn't have anything to say to the Jolly Old Man either.  Ah well.

Bonus Photos:  (it was a busy week, so there are lots of em).

"We got to see Santa AND go on tons of rides.  What a great day!"

After visiting Santa we headed on over to Nickelodeon Universe to hit up the rides.  Paige loves rides.  From the smallest little kid bus rides to the roller coaster, she just adores it.  She must get that from Valerie.

"Look at my nails, look at my nails.  See?"

Paige had a very exciting and enjoyable Christmas down in Wisconsin.  Here are just a few shots of her having fun.  Hopefully the extra photos make up for the delay.
