Playing with Toys

Eleanor is quickly learning how to bang and wildly throw her arms around. This is one of her favorites.

Prune Face

I gave Eleanor prunes for the first time last night. She really enjoyed them - so much so she put them all over her face! At one point she even had them going up the bridge of her nose and around her eyes, but I wiped that off straight away. She was pretty pleased with herself. Check out snapfish for even more cute photos of "Squeakle Prune Face".

Two Spoons

Sometimes we feed Eleanor using the "two spoon" method - she gets one, we get one. Somehow this time she got both! Usually, she gives the other one up when she realizes there is a new one with food. She also likes to "feed" herself by grabbing onto the spoon while you help her put it into her mouth or "grab" the blob of food off the spoon and put it in her mouth herself. Usually there is a big mess, but its ok since she is learning. We are sure there are bigger messes to come!

Happy New Year

We rang in New Year's day having Hannah's homemade pizza and a Methuselah (that's 3 liters) of Champagne that Zach, MarMar, and JonJon got while in Napa Valley this past fall. We had a lot of fun and hope that everyone's year will bring them many blessings.

Christmas Pictures

We had a fantastic holiday season. Lots of visiting with Sam and Zach who were both able to come in. Check out our holiday shots on our Snapfish Page, just follow the link on the side bar.


Eleanor has started eating her vegetables. So far she has tried carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, avocados and squash. She likes everything, but carrots (although, she will eat them). Each time she tries carrots she eats a few more so we think eventually she will like them. Her favorites are peas and sweet potatoes. She loves to make a big mess with the carrots by trying to feed herself. Here's Eleanor eating carrots for the first time.

Playing wtih Presents

Here's Eleanor playing with two of her presents. Now that she is sitting by herself she is having even more fun with them. Once she starts creeping and crawling the ball won't stand a chance.

Unwrapping Presents 2

Here's the video. I had to compress it for the web. Sorry.

Unwrapping Presents

Wow, Eleanor was very well remembered this year! Thank-you to everyone who sent her a present. She has sampled everything and your wrapping paper, a big seal of approval from the boss!). She really enjoys playing with the jumping bunny from David and Anna. She also enjoys watching the moving ball, but Mommy and Daddy don't so much enjoy listening to the great tune it plays! Here are some videos from Christmas morning.
