20 Months - (Nov24-Dec 24)
I love hats and scarves and mittens.  Here I am with a crown from McDonalds, my coat, new mittens and tights and boots...  What a fashion statement!  Mom and Dad are getting ready for Christmas..  We aren't doing a tree this year, but definately next year. 
  Memere gave me an advent calendar which I love, cause it is full of "bon-bons" (candy).  We had a school party, and Santa came!  I can say santa, but it is more like "tan-ta".  He says "ho-ho-ho"  We are going to Houston for Christmas - I cant wait to see my uncles, Cooper and Taylor, and my Memere and Papi.  I haven't figured out what to call Papi... sometimes it is Baba, sometimes Pappa, and we'll see what it ends up being... 
  I have been a very good girl and haven't opened any presents, but I am anxious too!  Thanks everyone for the Christmas cards!  I love seeing all of my second cousins and the new additions to our family and friends!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Here I am in my carseat on the way home from school.  I have a new hat on (backwards, but I did it all by myself), and I also have mama's scarf.  I ALSO have some cake in a bowl.  I love cake!  Daddy's co-worker, Keisha made us this lemon cake!  Thanks Keisha, I thoroughly enjoyed it.  See how happy I am!?  I can even say "cake"!  Yummy!
Dad is helping me put on mittens,  and later, I am worried mom isn't going to open the colors!
I am getting bigger, and streaching out!  My hair is getting longer and I love to run and hop!  Hopping is still high on my list of things to do!  Come visit us and play!  Mom said she has a room waiting!

Hugs,
