Midnight? My bedtime is ASAP

Emily's getting ready for her first New Year's Eve party. It should be interesting with three of mom's college friends/roommates and their families coming over; Emily will be passed from mom to mom to mom. Which will help me keep track of her; she's a sneaky little thing. Emily's working on her crawling, but not when you're watching. We were on the floor for a long time and while Emily was up on all four (knees & hands) she wasn't moving very far. When I left the room to answer the phone I could hear her ripping up the magazine I had left on the floor. When I got back I moved her back to her original position and waited and watched, nothing. When I went to answer the phone again more crumpled paper. Thank God mom came home and saved me.

Growing up way too fast

I don't know if the problem is that I work in early childhood education and have been sensitised to the developmental milestones but Emily Grace is starting to attempt things that she shouldn't be doing. Just this morning we caught her crawling out of the house with the car keys in her hand and a lit cigarette in her mouth. Emily claimed that the cigarette was mom's but I know that mom doesn't smoke unfiltered Pall-Malls.

Strap on the ol' feed bag

It's always dinner time at our house now that Emily's discovered food. She didn't seem too impressed with the rice cereal; not enough garlic I suppose....

Where are the Reindeer?

This is Emily's first sighting of Santa as he arrives by shrimp boat in Apalachicola, FL.
She's still laughing.
It's a very nice tradition. Santa arrives the day after Thanksgiving and the whole town turns out to celebrate. We kept an eye out for Forrest Gump but we never found him.
