Day 22

Today's letter celebrates my sweet little girl.  Lil' C blasted (I consider a labor of one push a "blast" ;)) into this world a little over a year ago.  Since that time she has filled our home with so much joy and love.  I always pictured me as a mom to boys (I am not a girly, girl) and have to admit I was very nervous when the doctor called out, "It's a Girl!".  Those nerves quickly melted away when I held her for the first time and I have been in love ever since.

Lil' C is a bubble of light :)  Since she was about 5 months old, she would enter a room and try to make everyone in that room smile.  She would capture the attention of even the most grumpy people and not break her gaze until they cracked a smile.  She LOVES people, loves being out in the world and is such a busy little girl (who does not like to sleep).  She never stops, gets into everything, puts everything in her mouth and unlike Z, actually requires a baby proofed environment! 

My little girl is one tough cookie :)  She is not afraid to tackle her brother, climb up on the furniture or stand up for what she wants.  I like to say that she has two moods....super happy and super pissed off!  When she is happy (which is most of the time), she is a joy to be around!  She laughs (hee hee hee), smiles, babbles, uses her baby signs and is so loving and kind.  When she is super out!  She stomps her little feet, screams, signs with such frustration and will carry on until her needs are met.  We ignore most of her temper tantrums but there are tantrums over being hungry, thirsty and dirty diapers too.  Sometimes it can be hard to tell which is important and which is just because she did not get her way.  We have found that it is best to just keep her on a schedule and life is usually smooth sailing :)

I can't believe that my sweet baby is 14 months already...however it is also hard to picture our lives before her.  Lil' C is such an amazing little person and S and I are so in love with our little girl.  She is our little angel and we are so blessed to have her and Z to love.  Merry Christmas Lil' C!

Z's Video Tour of our Holiday Decorations

WARNING--If you suffer from motion sickness, you may want to take a Dramamine before viewing ;)

Our good friend over at Mommy's Nest posted a video tour of their holiday decorations the other day and this inspired my young friend Z.  He took out his V-Tech camera (AWESOME toy by the way, this is my own opinion) and made this short film of our decorations.  I hope you like it!

Yes, one push would most definitely count as "blasting." Wow. Love the imagery of Lil C tackling Z!

Mommy Lisa said...

That child is a Coppola in training! Awesome.

:) C sounds like Boo Boo - she always smiles at everyone and when she was very little she would smile at strangers and when they didn't smile and talk to her she would give me a look that said, "What is wrong with that person? Can't they see I am CUTE!?!"

Love you Lil' C!

OMG that video was awesome! Blair Witch Project has nothing on Z!!! Lil C sounds like my Jillian boy can she throw a tantrum or love you to pieces. Awesome stuff!
