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.
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!
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).
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!
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!
