This is Graecyn shortly after getting her ears pierced, her chosen birthday present from us. Many tears were shed, as you can see in the glimmer of her eyes. She made it through the process thanks to mommy's encouraging words and daddy holding her tightly
I took this 90 second video when I picked up Graecyn and Mia at Mama and Papa's house. Graecyn was in a conversating mood.
The girls are in the City once again. Farrah sent me the above photo from the Palace of Fine Arts. I wish I could be up there with them enjoying the day.
The Santa Claus at Stanford Shopping Center has been our staple Santa over the years. The only other time we saw Santa Claus elsewhere was in Hawaii. This year we waited until the weekend before Christmas to visit Santa. It seemed like a lot of other people had the same idea, given the long line we encountered early that Saturday morning.
But the girls were very patient waiting. And when it was their turn to sit on the jolly old fellow’s lap, the girls were well behaved - for the most part. I think Graecyn is going through a little stranger danger / separation issue right now. But Mia was all in awe of Santa. Mia even spent several moments after the photo session talking to Santa about her gift ideas.
It's always tough getting the girls ready in the morning. Sometimes they place nice, like this morning. This gives mom and dad the opportunity to actually get ready for work and instead of rushing to work.
Trying to calm Graecyn down, who is sitting in the back seat, with the iPhone camera. Of course I'm recording it.
Graecyn is watching sitting back and watching Justin Timberlake's fifth appearance on Saturday Night Live. I think she's commenting on his performance.
Graecyn Belle was born at 1:50am on November 8. 2012. She weighs 6 lbs 10 oz, and is 19 1/2 inches long, with a thick head of hair like her sister. Mommy, baby and family are doing great!
