Our sweet, friendly little girl is finally getting a little more common sense. She is getting a little stranger shy and it was particularly apparent with Santa. We had tried to have her meet Santa at our ward party the morning this picture was taken and she would not have it. At Michael's work party we waited in line with her cousins for a good hour and we tried again mostly for the sake of a good crying Santa picture. I started to feel a little guilty when it was our turn and I saw June's lip start to quiver in anticipation. The last picture is our third attempt with Kate being her guide. She did much better.

As a side note, when I was growing up I used to love holding any baby I could get my hands on. I was always disappointed when the baby wanted their mom again. I used to reassure myself thinking that one day I would be a mom and be a baby’s favorite. As it turns out, June loves to go to other people and when I reach for her she shakes her head no and laughs. 

Thanksgiving 2011

It was our first Thanksgiving without our families so Michael and I decided to go big and go to the Four Seasons since no one wanted to make Thanksgiving dinner for two adults and Michael was working most of the weekend. June did great and we enjoyed walking around downtown after our meal. I flew out the next day for San Diego for Megan's baby shower.

Phone Pictures

We've been on the go the last few weeks and I do not have much to show for our last few weeks besides for a few iPhone pictures. It has been snowy in Colorado, but I got a break from it when I went to California to see my family. June and I had a great time. She loves all the fun things she gets to do at my parents' house.   Below are a few pictures of June and what she is into right now.

She loves hats, necklaces, headbands, or anything to accessorize
She adores Bella


Ever since sitting in Lorraine's Phil and Ted's double stroller, June has liked to make the stroller's storage space her personal hide out. She enjoys reading and eating snacks in her little nook.
