Hamming it up for the camera

Steve caught Paige on video on his phone - here are some fun clips. They do have sound although video quality is not quite as good as the regular camera. Still, they are worth watching! Enjoy!

In this movie, Paige is sitting in her booster seat. First she does her chicken move, then she plays along while mom sings Itsy Bitsy Spider. Watch those little fingers trying to make a spider!

In this movie, Paige models a hat, checks herself out in the mirror, and plays a little peek-a-boo with dad.

Just a quick post to list all the words Paige knows so far: mama, dada, Hannah, up, hot, help, night-night, bye-bye, ba ba (bottle), all done, dat (that), dis (this), ahpen (open), boom. She often signs "more" especially for cheese, cheerios, and blueberry muffins. She's learning all the time-- amazing what a sponge her little mind is!

2007 Holidays

What a whirlwind the last month has been! We went out to lunch on Christmas Eve at Jury's as a family, then attended mass at 4:30 to watch the older kids at Holy Trinity act out the Christmas story. We each opened one gift at home.

Christmas morning started early (as every morning does with our resident rooster). We opened our gifts and enjoyed a quiet day at home. Paige got caught up in the bows, ribbons, and brightly-colored paper, so that it took her over half an hour to open her loot! We made our own delicious Christmas dinner of ham, mashed potatoes, broccoli, and home-made fudge for dessert.

We welcomed friends from Tampa, as well as local friends, for a gathering on Dec 26. The kids ranged from 6 weeks to 2 1/2 years and got along wonderfully. We enjoyed hosting and hope it's the first of many parties we'll have in our new home.

We traveled to Ohio to see family after Christmas. Paige loved playing with her cousins, and the grandparents just ate up all the energy running around!
