Victoria has become a book lover. Anytime she sees a book, well, she wants it! She loves opening them, closing them, looking at the pages, turning the pages, openning them, closing get the idea! I hope this is something that lasts a lifetime!

Can't decide which one to read!

Did I get enough out?

Victoria meets Santa

Today we went to meet Santa. I thought Victoria was going to be afraid but they got along very well :) Santa told her what a good girl she had been and mommy agreed! She thought for a second to cry but the photo crew did a good job at keeping her entertained. Here is our little girl on Santa's lap for the first time!

Okay, it has been almost 4 months since I updated the blog...I know, too long! I have been in front of the computer for 4 hours now but I have uploaded all the pictures that were on my camera (more than 1200!!!!). I blogged on some of the best moments of those so take your time and go back thru the posts since August and have fun! Love, Maria-Paula (while Victoria sleeps)

Now that I am 9 months old I am EVERYWHERE! I am chasing (crawling) the cats, the dog chases me and mommy chases the dog! I am self fedding very well, drink from my cup, pull to a stand and play well with others.

Big day for me, 9 months old and my first Thanksgiving!
I got to eat turkey and mashed potatoes...yum, yum! I also took my 9 month old pictures (in my rocker). I have been a little sick so it was a long day for me...

Gobble, gobble, gobble

The Arboretum

Abu came to visit for Halloween (any excuse:). We went to the Arboretum to take pictures in the Pumpkin Patch...Taylor, Presley and Teagan invited us! I had fun but that hay was itchy!
