Teeth flossing

Tonight we got a little silly with teeth flossing, and Juni ended up lying on her back on the floor because she didn't want to stand up. A classmate of Juni's had to get a cap and root canal on a tooth recently, and was told it was because she wasn't flossing. I didn't know that 3 year olds need to floss! So we have added it to our nightly routine.

Big-sister-to-be gifts

Juni got gifts from 3 of my co-workers at my work baby shower on Monday. Such a good idea--all from experienced Moms of more than one child, so they understand how important it is to make the older child feel special, too, while the new baby gets a lot of attention. I was so touched by their thoughtfulness! Here's a picture just after Juni opened one of the gifts--Dora The Explorer plate, bowl & cup!

Baby shower by co-workers

My co-workers threw me a surprise baby shower yesterday! I was so touched by their thoughtfulness and generosity. Loads of gifts for the baby boy to be. Such love and a fun time. We are blessed.

Novato Christmas house

In the spirit of finding free things to do while celebrating the holidays, we drove up to Novato to see this locally famous house with loads of Christmas decorations inside and out. The house has an enormous number of Christmas decoration collectables. Here are a few pictures from the INSIDE of the house. This generous family opens its doors to thousands of strangers every year (for the past 20 years).

Sleeping with hands folded

Our little girl, looking so sweet while asleep with her hands clasped together. After a night of Christmas light viewing, she fell asleep in the car at the grocery store parking lot with Daddy while Mommy did some shopping before heading home. I came back to the car to find her like this. So sweet!

Boat lights

We went to see the annual Christmas lights boat parade in San Rafael on Saturday night. Juni enjoyed seeing the boats and Christmas lights. A fun, free event!

Ballet class 12/9/11

On Friday I kept Juni home from preschool and I didn't go to work so that we could spend the day together. We went to a free trial class at a ballet school near by. Juni loved it. She was in such a good mood for hours afterwards. She loves to dance!

Happy birthday Daddy!

Juni is a "magazine" model!

Juniper participated in a Summer camp program for one week in June at a neighboring town.   Apparently while she was there, she smiled pretty for someone's camera and they chose to use two pictures of her in their activity guide for this Fall.  See the pictures.  Yes, I had signed a photo release as part of signing her up for the camp.  I was very grateful to find the camp because otherwise we didn't have child care for that week when her regular preschool was closed.   I didn't know about the pictures until two separate friends told me about it.

Juni quotes Joey

Juni put her ear to my belly and said that Joey told her a secret. What did he say? "I love you and I wanna watch TV"

"Family" - Juni

Juni's dream

One of my favorite things to do is asking Juniper when she wakes up, what did you dream about? Today it was: "Bert and Ernie and a Fire Fighter and a fire truck"

Park fun

Juni and friend are just barely still small enough to fit into the baby swing together. Getting them out of the swing was a little challenging.
