Happy New Year! We had a really lovely and peaceful Christmas at home. Juliette was not really interested in the actual opening on the gifts...she just wanted to play with them afterwards. It is so much harder to get pictures of her this year now that she is mobile and on the move non-stop. Santa brought her lots of toys and goodies. Christmas is so awesome when there are little people around.
Oh how I love Christmastime! It is such a magical season...especially when Meghan Lewis of Meghan Vail Photography can get awesome pictures of a crazy toddler! Meghan is a true miracle worker! I have not been able to get Juliette to sit for pictures (for more than a second) for a while now, but Meghan was able to do it! She captured the real Juliette!
Juliette hung out with Santa for a little while today. She didn't seem too impressed by him. She even let him hang onto Chuck. I wonder what she was telling him...hmmm. They had a nice chat and that was that, As she walked away, she did turn back and look him over a few times. Not so sure about that fella.
Happy Fourth of July from the spunkiest gal I know! After a long week and a half, Juliette is healthy! Time to celebrate! Hope you all have a safe and fun Fourth!!!
Juliette enjoyed seeing the Easter Bunny again this year. She wasn't scared at all and was non-stop jabber mouth the entire time. Maybe she's confusing the Bunny for Santa?
Happy Easter! We had some homemade biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast (except Juliette who fed Monty her biscuit). Juliette hasn't had much interest in her basket...it's still sitting undisturbed on her bedroom floor. I'm sure next year will be the complete opposite! I am off to work in a little while...BOOOOO. At least I will get some cute visitors, Juliette & her Pops. The Easter Bunny will be waiting for her!
Santa stopped by and left some goodies for Juliette! She wasn't into opening the gifts at all. And we were WAY too fast for her. If she could talk, I'm sure she would have told us to slow down so she could play with each gift for at least 10 minutes before the next one was opened. Juliette got a water table, some new clothes, her first pair of Minnetonka's, her first Blabla doll and LOTS of new toys!
After opening gifts, we had breakfast and enjoyed a peaceful day at home. We missed our families, but it was nice to be home and not have to be on the road. I'm sure next year we will head north. The holidays have a whole new meaning when you have your own child! It is soooo much fun! It's almost like being a kid again ourselves! And I know it'll just keep getting better! Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
We went to have breakfast with Santa this morning at my alma mater, Flagler College. Juliette seems to like Santa so far. I think she'll like him even better after he stops by the house!
It had been about 11 years since I had been back to the Dining Hall at Flagler. It was nice to be back! It was even better to have some of my bestest college friends there to share in the spirit of the season! We sure have come a long way since our college days! And of course, Juliette enjoyed hanging out with her boyfriend, Harrison, too!
I've been wanting to take Christmas pictures of Juliette ever since Halloween ended. I'm not going to lie...our Christmas tree was up before Thanksgiving. The holidays are even more special now that we get to celebrate with Juliette. I am so excited Santa is coming to our house this year! Anyways, here's some pictures I took of our little angel, "Best Gift Ever!"
There were also moments of meltdown...equally as cute if you ask me. She's cute even when she's upset!
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Jen and I am the proud Momma of Juliette Margot! We are so blessed to have a healthy and happy baby girl. Check back often and watch as Juliette grows...you never know what great adventures are ahead of us!
