The Rest of Winter Break

I have just two other adventures to share with you as I recall the events of your second holiday season, so I'm cramming those two anecdotes into one blog post.

The first story involves my new favorite holiday: your birthday. I decided it was the BEST IDEA EVER to throw you a school birthday party in addition to your birthday party with friends and family. I bought these ridiculously overpriced organic/no added sugar/antibiotic-free/hormone-free/grassfed dairy cows/locally sourced yogurt (hey at least my conscious was clear), and brought like six of them to school for your teachers to give to you and your friends at lunch time. One teacher informed me that only one of your friends was allowed to have yogurt. (The thing with an infant classroom is that kids are at all different ages and therefore at different levels of development. There isn't a big difference chronologically between nine and twelve months, but there's a HUGE difference developmentally. So, I understood this.)

The funniest part of this story is that Daddy and I went to school to meet you for lunch. I always loved it with my mom and/or dad came to eat lunch with me at school on my birthday, so I thought we'd start this tradition now. You were totally confused by it, shy even. This was your face the entire time we were there:

But then, of course, you screamed your head off when we left.

Our other story is about your Abue's visit for New Years Eve. We weren't planning on doing anything for New Years, and we thought Abue and Mr. David were supposed to arrive after midnight. Ms. Karen called me last-minute to invite us to a party at their house, we decided to change our nonexistent plans for actual plans! We brought a Pack-N-Play, and you slept through the entire thing like a champ.

Abue and Mr. David actually ended up arriving around 10; they got their flight times mixed up. They didn't want us to have to change our plans, and we didn't want to miss spending time with them, so they came over to the Mayne's house and partied with us!

Abue and Mr. David's visit was really great. We got to spend lots of quality time together, and they spoiled you rotten with birthday and Christmas presents. One of the highlights of their trip for me was when we went to the zoo.

We have a membership, but we haven't been in a couple of months. It was so fun to see how much more into it you were this time around!
