Happy New Year

The flipping of the calendar always causes us to reflect on the past years' events and look forward to another year full of new ones. Rebecca is 4 months old now and we are constantly amazed at the things that she does. She is constantly "talking" to us and imitates the sounds we make. She loves any toy or book that makes noise and even "sings" with a few songs. We have some pretty cute video clips of her chatting with Dad, but I'm not very tech savy and have to figure out how to get those loaded onto the blog.

A really big change for us happens tomorrow when I go back to work. I am definitely ready to get back to teaching and working at school, but leaving Rebecca will be very hard. Leaving her might be a little easier if she would drink from a bottle, but she still adamantly refuses. Although she is making great strides with her sippy cup. She not so sure about the water that drips into her mouth, but at least she wants the cup in her mouth. Maybe in a month or so she will be able to take in a few ounces from it.Another new thing she is doing is eating cereal. I think she likes it because she opens her mouth pretty well for it, but about half of every spoonful still comes back out. She has also learned that she can spin around in her excersaucer and she loves to play with all the toys around her. This last picture is of her snuggled in her car seat staying nice and warm. We love that she travels so well and usually sleeps soundly in the car.

She might possibly even be warm enough to visit Grandma and Grandpa Pontier in Neerlandia, Alberta!

  2. i thought you said that grandma was going to give her a bottle when you visited last?

    did grandma break down when she started to cry?
