Visit with Santa

We weren't so sure how you would react to Santa... you ended up being indifferent. You sat exactly how Daddy placed you in his lap. You didn't cry. You didn't smile. You just sat there looking at all the adults (Lori, Ashley & myself) talking to you trying to make you smile. You held on tight to that tiny candy cane however. We forgot you had it until we heard you crunching the wrapper in the backseat on the way to Daddy's soccer game. Candy canes and jingle bells. They make you smile. Santa? Whatever.

Dec 3rd

I gave Reid her stocking this morning and she played with the jingle bells for a good 20 minutes. She is already having a merry little Christmas.

Long overdue

I'm officially behind... in everything it seems! I have rejoined the work force and still trying to juggle working 40 hour weeks while being a wife and parent. Trying to determine what a successful working Mom looks like, so if you have any suggestions feel free to share... So far I have figured out what it DOESN'T look like. Not a clean house, home cooked meals, or restful evenings. I am very determined to be present in whatever moment I am in. Thankful for my husband, my daughter, and my patients.
Life continues to be good to us and we are so blessed. I am currently listening to Reid watch the Leafs game with her Daddy in the other room as I type this. She is starting to talk up a storm these days {just like her Mommy!}. She also drools more than anyone I've ever met! Too bad we can't harvest that stuff and use it to cure Parkinson's or ALS. :) And her belly laughs are completely contagious.
Reid is six months today! We celebrated by taking her on her first hike at Swayback Bridge. She loved being on her Daddy's back, enjoying the scenery & soaking up the sunshine. She also had rice cereal tonight, which was not a huge hit. We are pretty sure that 1/10 of what we fed her ended up in her tummy...!
Enjoy some pictures from our day:
