Gianna's FIRST Christmas Eve and Christmas

Today was your very FIRST Christmas Eve!!! We went to Nani and Papa's house to celebrate!


 We had the BEST day, woke up and opened up your presents Santa left.  You weren't too excited about the presents, more for the wrapping paper!!

11 months more monthly sticker!

Today you are 11 months old!  Time has gone by entirely too quick and each day I try to stop and think about how unbelieveably thankful I am that god brought you into my life.  You have changed me in so many ways, YOU, Gianna Elyse are my greatest accomplishment and I LOVE being your Mommy!
You've been busy lately...
~you have been working up to taking those first steps!  You can stand by yourself and at times you do take a step but fall forward. 
~you LOVE to mimic everything we say, sounds and words, you can say; Daddy, yay, hi and thank you. Yea I know "thank you"  its SO funny.  Everytime I ask you for something, you give it to me and I say thank you, recently you have been holding your hand out to get it back, then you say thank you!  I LOVE it!!!! 
~you have also developed a love of music!  You dance when any music is on, your dancing is more like just shaking your booty. =0)  
~you love to play with your baby or elmo doll.  You carry the baby around and sometimes will pat her!  You're so sweet to her most of the time, sometimes you drop her when something else seems more interesting. 
~you like to play with Mommy's phone.  I have a fisher-price app that sings the alphabet, number song and a shapes song.  When I give you my phone and the app starts up you squeal and clap, then you carry it around and dance to the songs or sometimes you plop down on the floor and watch
Here you are on your 11 month birthday!

Getting into the Spirit of CHRISTMAS (first Christmas to be exact)

This weekend we had so much fun!  We started on Friday night with dinner at On the Boarder-you loved the chicken soft taco, black beans, rice and the fresh avocado!  After dinner we bundled up and headed out to Christmas on the River!  It was fun to walk around, listen to carolers and see the shops, and FIREWORKS!  This was the first time you saw fireworks b/c you weren't able to stay up on the 4th of July!

Watching the fireworks with Daddy (my favorite picture)
To go along with the Chirstmas spirited weekend we went to Crown Center to visit Santa.  Not too sure what you thought of him...for the longest time you just starred at him when you finally turned around, you looked like a deer in headlights! =)  Better than crying I guess.

What's new with you??

You have without a doubt been keeping us BUSY!  You are cruising all over the place, getting into everything of course!  You have been teething so much lately, you now have 2 bottom teeth, 2 top teeth and your bottom right tooth next to the 2 you already have. (we can see another coming in on the left side too).  You have been clapping your hands and saying yay, waving bye bye, and giving things to us when we ask for them.  You say "daddy" all the time!!!  We are really working on getting you to figure out what or who that is!  I think sometimes you know but when we get too excited after you say it, you just keep repeating it over and over to get a reaction! =)
You are quite the little ham! Everytime I take your picture it seems you just smile bigger and cheesier! haha
Here are some pictures of your cute little self lately!
