First a Christmas picture. Most of you have seen this already in our holiday card, but we're posting it here for posterity.
And now, my monthly picture!
This week was special because Mommy spent it with me. She's on her winter break. I like it when Mommy is on vacation. We went to a play date on Wednesday with some babies who also live in San Mateo. I met one of the babies (Naomi) way back in the summer. There was another baby there (Felix), but I didn't get a picture with him.
Here I am with Naomi...playing with her toys.
Auntie Jun made a surprise visit on Wednesday. She brought me a Christmas present too! She's so nice...and tall!
Uncle Mike, Auntie Jen, and my cousin Alyssa are in town again. I'll get to see them a lot this next week.
Here's a picture with Auntie Nathalie and my cousin Alyssa.
And a couple of just the cousins.
I got a new toy from Mommy and Daddy,
And from Grandma and Grandpa too! Uncle Mike and Auntie Jen gave me some wooden blocks, but I don't have a picture with those yet.
I like Rocky quite a bit...he makes me laugh.
Do you see my boo boo? I hurt my head when I fell on a lid of a can. I DO love snuggling with Daddy though.
I saw Uncle Greg again, but I wasn't too happy to take a picture with him. Sorry Uncle Greg! It was way past my nap time and I was getting cranky! Next time I'll behave.
I prefer to climb instead of letting Daddy take pictures of me.
A couple of new developments...I pushed up to a stand. I usually pull on furniture to stand up, but I pushed up on Mommy's leg and stood up on Christmas! I'm getting good at it.
Another new development is that I took my first step, also on Christmas. I'm very wobbly, and I fall soon after my first step (or two), but it's all about practice now. Daddy thinks I'll walk by the time I'm a year old. We'll see...until next week!
