Christmas: an early arriving holiday for 2011

Because Baby Boy is expected this next month, Christmas has already been on my mind.  I don't want to feel surprised by the holiday- instead I hope to be as prepped as possible.  Zane has even gotten in the mood and we have begun getting everything for our kids ready. 
Zane decided he would use his artistic talents to make Adella a poster of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet because we haven't been able to find a simple one that we liked.  He finished it quickly, and it is fantastic!
We are going to be using some of the baby's Christmas gifts earlier.  This is the car seat cover that I made the other day so we can make sure he is kept warm this winter! 

Adella has decided she is a big girl, and refuses to take naps (which is probably the hardest change she could have made right now on mommy).  It's a rare occasion when she is willing to sit in my lap and take a snooze, but I had to post this picture.

Alright... she really isn't in my lap, but there sure isn't a whole lot of room.  You can also tell how hot it has been because our landlord had already unhooked our swamp cooler and the warmer weather heated our house well. 

Then, this morning, Adella looked so cute and was being photogenic (which is rare because she likes to get close and study the camera).  So I thought I would post a small handful of photos!

Nap Time: Rebellious State

 Adella is starting to fight back about her nap times.  Quite often I find her out and about, playing with whatever she can find.  Most of the time she refuses to sleep, but I was pleasantly surprised to find her comfortably sleeping on the rocker in her room.  I was exceptionally pleased to find her in this state, with her face on a book, indicating she was reading before she fell asleep. 

I love these pictures from this week too!
I love it when my girl will pose for a picture, especially with her pretty necklace.

With the cold weather  it was difficult to stay warm without a heater on, and I found Adella adorable.  Her thermals, jacket, and one sock outfit.

Shoe & Shelves: conquered

Wednesday is my day for laundry, and this last week Adella surprised me by walking around the corner with her shoes on.  As impressive as that was, I was still impressed that she had chosen the correct foot for each sandal.  Mama was so proud.

This evening, after conference, Zane put up a shelf in Adella's and Baby Boy's room.  Currently I have dressed it with only objects for Adella.  Now it's time to find some adorable sports objects to get the other side ready for our little one.
