Welcome to Genevieve's life!

Welcome to Genevieve's blog! My goal is to post a photo everyday to remember and document just how fast she is growing up. We don't want to miss anything!

Potty Training Success

Today you came home from Nancy's in a shirt I had never seen before. You are almost potty trained but I guess today was one of the "almost" times because you came home in a different outfit then I sent you up with. I am so proud of you Genevieve! You still don't ask to go, but will hold it until we take you to the potty most of the time. You are not even 2 1/2 yet, what a smart girl.

Amelia and Genevieve= BFF

You will like Teresa's dog Amelia. You love playing with her when you spend the day at Grandma's house. In the bottom photo you are imitating the dog stance and told Grandma to take a picture of you. Even though she is a big dog, you don't seem to be scared of her.

Snuggle Buddies

Today when Mommy got home from work you wanted to snuggle with me. Ussually snuggling will last 2 or 3 minutes but we were snuggling for a long time, almost a half hour! I think you love your mama...

I smash the face

You are so silly Genevieve, you kept smashing your face together and telling me to take a picture tonight. You were having the best time trying to talk with your face all squashed together.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas tree

We got our Christmas tree earlier then usual because next weekend we are having our annual holiday party. We got a very pretty tree from Home Depot. In order to make room we got rid of the broken chair as well. I had to get one last photo of you on the chair since I did your month by month photos on the chair your first year.

Mission San Gabriel

We went on an adventure today! We went out to Mission San Gabriel. It is our closest mission and you hadn't been yet.  It is on the smaller side but very nicely done and well kept. You mostly enjoyed running around and running away from me. Afterwards we had In and Out, so yummy!

For dinner we had part 4 of Thanksgiving dinner. Aunt Christi wanted to make a turkey so we went down and had the last of the turkeys for November.

Thanksgiving part 2 and 3

Mommy won a turkey dinner at work with all the trimmings and since we already had plans yesterday we invited some friends over today to enjoy it. You had a fun time playing with Eric and Aubrey, you girls even helped rake up the leaves for us! Next it was over to Grandma and Grandpa's house for part 3 of Thanksgiving. We had their leftovers from Thursday.

Thanksgiving 2012

Thanksgiving is finally upon us! We woke up in the morning and went swimming in the pool at Morongo. The water was warm, the pool was empty and you had a great time. A quick stop at the Cabazon Dinosaurs before headed to George's house. We had a day full of football, food and more food. You took a nap so you missed out on the group photo at the end, sorry Genevieve!

Pre Thanksgiving Morongo

We are doing Thanksgiving at George's house in Palm Springs tomorrow. We decided to stay at Morongo the night before to be a little closer to the action. We arrived a little later then we wanted to because of traffic but had an awesome dinner and you went "swimming" in the giant bathtub in the room. We had a wonderful night!

Metrolink Santa Train

It is that time of year again. We are kicking off the holiday season with the Metrolink Santa Train. We walked up to the Upland station and donated some toys to Toys for Tots. Next we got to look at a Firetruck and soon Santa rolled in on the Metrolink train. You enjoyed the lights, music and confetti at the end.

Turkey Day Almost Here

Today we stopped at Trader Joes on our way home and there was a giant inflatable chicken (or it is a turkey, but you called it a chicken). You wanted to touch his nose and feet. It was the highlight of your trip to Trader Joes!

Shapes on my belly

You have been playnig teacher with Mommy. YOu have flashcards with shapes/colors on them and you will hold them up to me and say, what shape is this? Sometimes I say it wrong and you will correct me. I came back in the room and you had all the cards on you and said, "Look mama, shapes on my belly!", it was cute.

Fall Leaves

It must be fall, all of our trees are shedding leaves. I made some piles today while you played outside and you promptly spread them back out and jumped in them. You were having such a good time I couldn't even be mad. We have so many trees (good) that all drop so many leaves (bad). By Jan. we should be through with all of the leaves.

Mommy comes home!

After one last day of New York City, Mommy came home! By the time I got home you were asleep in bed, but at least I got to take my own photo of you for the day. You woke up in the middle of the night, came to the bed and said, Mama your back. It was so sweet.

Night at Nana's House

You spent the night at Nana's house because Daddy was out late. Nana and Aunt Christi took good care of you, made you breakfast and gave you a bath. You even slept from 10pm to 8:30am without waking up, now why don't you do that at home? Mommy is in New York, here are a few photos from her day:

Mama Sheep

Aunt Teresa got you a nice new red jacket for winter. You have decided that it looks better on mama sheep and she must wear it. You are still wearing your super cute jacket Daddy bought you last year, but hopefully I can convince you to wear the red one as well.

Mama's baby

Genevieve you are mama's baby and always will be. I look at you and think, you use to be so little! I am sure in another years time I will look at pictures from today and think, you use to be so little! I guess you have to keep growing, but you will always be mama's baby at heart.
