20 months, Baby!

On her 20th month anniversary of life Juni counted to 6, which must
have been exhausting as she's only ever made it to 3 before. Thanks
for the 5 Little Monkey book, Gran Gran. She must have counted
herself as the final chimp.

Merry Christmas 2009

Merry Christmas!!!
Juni has had a virus, so I will save you from seeing her "sick face", which is heartbreaking. Opening presents and playing with new toys has been a great distraction to her miserable moodiness. After 4 days of a fever, she is finally showing signs of improvement! Our little threesome of Mommy, Daddy and Juni have been tucked in safe at home and enjoying our time together despite the bug. We have rescheduled Christmas with the grandfolks to New Year's Day and are looking forward to celebrating again with them.

Jen's work desk decorations

JOY! We found this JOY decoration at a shop in Sonoma and I brought
it to work to help decorate my desk. My co-workers have all helped to
decorate our work place and it is feeling festive! I plan to bring
JOY back home with me in time for Christmas.

The Artist's Way

Bob, Jen and friends have started a group to do the course The
Artist's Way based on the book by the same name. We had our first
meeting on Sunday night. It was fun and I feel inspired. I decided
to try out being a photographer this week, and this is my photo from
tonight, Monday. One of the assignments in the course is to write a
list of other occupations you would like to have if you had other
lives. Photographer is on my list. It is something that has always
had my interest, and it has come in very useful for documenting the
changes in the little life of Juniper.

Monkey Pajamas

These jammies are actually sold in the "boys" section, but I liked
the design so much I had to get them. Her daddy thinks she looks
great in this color. She loves to point to the monkeys. They make
her laugh.

Juni trick-or-treating

Frog Architect

Downtown San Rafael Halloween

We went to the Halloween Festival at Saint Raphael School. We played some games there including pumpkin bowling, which Juniper was VERY good at. We also went through the school's haunted house which spooked Mommy much more than Juni, who didn't seem scared at all (and she was safe in Daddy's arms). We had a yummy lunch at our favorite Puerto Rican restaurant, and then did some Trick-or-Treating on 4th Street. We stopped by the food store on our way home, and someone fell asleep in her stroller! Now she is napping in her bed for the afternoon and resting up for more Halloween fun tonight. We walked by several houses who were getting their decorations and haunted house set-ups ready for tonight. Looking forward to enjoying all the excitement, celebrations and Halloween enthusiasm in our neighborhood tonight.

Another neighborhood walk

She enjoyed today's walk more than what her face may show in this
picture. Though she has a cold, we thought some fresh air would be
good. We are loving the backpack carrier! All the people who
recommended we get one were right. We are also loving our
neighborhood and the wooded areas that are in walking distance to our
home. We walked a nice loop today that took about an hour. Beautiful!
