Confetti Christmas...

I think these are so exciting.  Confetti System Ornaments from West Elm.  I heart all of their creations, so I'm loving the mini versions at a smaller price.

I did it!

I officially cut my hair.  Like a real cut (not like last time).  I feel so light!  I finally got to the point in the last few months where I was up putting it up almost every day at clinic and feeling just kind of blah and unprofessional.  I thought I'd be super sad, but I'm actually just excited about it.  It takes a lot less time to dry and works more with my natural hair texture.  And, I was so scared that Eloise would flip out (she's obsessed with my hair), but she didn't even notice.  So, here's to a new look!


I keep forgetting about this hilarious photo of Eloise.  She was so much smaller and her hair was all spiky, but it's obvious her personality hasn't changed at all. :)

This little one is growing up way. too. fast.  I can't stop to think about it or I'll start crying. 

Her recent interests include...
* Singing the ABCs (constantly.  I mean, constantly.).  Watch video for proof.
* Pumpkins.  She talks about the "punkin" on our porch every morning.  "Itssa punkin!"
* Counting.  Sometimes to the number 10.  Mostly 1, 2, 3 over and over again.
* Repeating every single word we say.  
* Making people laugh and fake-laughing.
* Running.
* Dancing.  I tell you, this girl is a dancing fool.  Like, needs to dance every day.  And if I get tired and sit while we're dancing, she begins crying while pulling my shoulder and screams, "UP! UP!"
* Books.  Still.  She's obsessed.  If we're not dancing, we're most likely reading books.  Books about Elmo are a big favorite, but any of them will do.
* Climbing.  Climbing on chairs and couches and anything, really - on her own, mind you.  She sits on a booster seat to eat, no longer wanting to be secured in her high chair.  I mean, what do we think she is, a baby?
* Giving hugs.  She's still the best hugger on the planet.  I mean that.  I'm so her cuddliness hasn't gone away.
* At daycare, she loves to play and eat.  Apparently, she scavanges her classmates' plates after she is done.  Embarrassing.  I promise we feed her.
