Juniper was a super star tonight at the mall. She waited in line with me for over an hour and then smiled on cue when it was her turn to have her picture taken with Santa Claus. When we got home and I got her ready for bed (way past her usual bedtime), I noticed a third tooth poking through her gums. It is on the bottom, next to the other two. I'm surprised because I heard that the top front teeth would be the next to come in. She's doing her own unique thing already, even with her teething style. I am glad to see this tooth because I feel that her cranky night time behavior is validated and explained now. I have been taking good care of her and soothing her like a good mommy when she's been waking up at night for the past week. I hope she feels better soon and that she really does have a merry Christmas.

Juniper graduated from bathing in a little plastic baby tub, and now she takes a bath in the big tub! She loves to splash her hands in the water. Well, when she gets excited or happy these days, she flaps her arms up and down, and the water made her excited and so there was a lot of splashing going on. It was fun!

We checked her weight last week and she was 17 lbs, 10 oz. She's 7 1/2 months old. She's a joy! So interactive and fun. Bob, Aunt Squishy and I have been a great team in taking care of her. About a month ago or so, Bob and Squishy told me they heard her say "mama", and I heard her babbling "ma ma ma ma ma". Well, this week her babbles have included "da da da da da..." and Bob is thrilled. She's growing and starting to seem like a little person.

Bob, Juniper and I went to the staff holiday party at the health care center (my new job). Santa was there! Juniper seemed to think he was pretty cool. I hope to get a copy of one of the pictures that the photographer there took, where Bob and I were getting her attention and making her smile at his camera. Until then, enjoy this photo I took when she first sat on his lap.

Wendy is a couple weeks younger than Juniper, and it was so neat to see them interacting with each other. Our friends Celina and Philip were in town from Germany, and we finally got to meet their little girl. In the top photo, the dads are switched (Bob is holding Wendy and Philip is holding Juniper). We had a nice afternoon together and Juniper seemed very happy to spend time with someone her age.

Bob took a day off from work on Friday, and I don't usually work on Fridays so the three of us went on a walk in Golden Gate Park. We went to the top of the tower of the De Young museum, and a nice man from the Midwest offered to take a picture of us.
