Winter wonderland

dont they look happy?

down with gloves!

emma's beauty session

Emma has her nightly ritual, at 730 pm she gets her bath , proceeded by a slathering of lotions and creams and powders, her milk and 15-30 mns of fighting night time. These are just some cute pics of her the other day, clearly not winding down.

my little monkey

if I keep my back turned, then they dont see me.

she finds her treats.
papa, can you help me open this?
Thank you
You can see the step stool she used to get up on the counter.

too cute

Failed attempts at photographing Emma for Xmas card

emma loving her stuffed animals to death.

these kind of remind me of Tiny Toon's Elmira...I will love them and hug them and squeeze them to death. Too cute. Of course Gato has to be front and center.

xmas card

these are the Xmas cards we sent out this year. the funny one for the few who would appreciate it and a traditional one. Emma is real hard to photograph so these are what i ended up with. There are other versions of these floating around but in general these are this ones. Merry Christmas to all.

Great Children's books for xmas.

These are my favorite books for xmas. They are sweet and perfect for the little ones. True classics. My little girl loves lift the flap books and touch and feel books, so any Karen Katz book is sure to be a hit with your wee ones as well. Katz apparently makes one for each major holiday. Snow day is the most recent book and tho not necessarily a xmas book, the illustrations are gorgeous and season appropriate.

happy thanksgiving.

emma wants this doggy

just lounging on thanksgiving morning

not many pictures taken. it was a llllooong day, waiting for my parents to arrive. My dad being elderly and with some problems it was very stressful getting them from florida to NY. We ate late, the food was so so but it was nice to have them up here to watch emma eat her first turkey and stuffing.
