Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Veronica taking a picture of us by our tree. We took the kids to this neighborhood in Woodland Hills that puts on a huge light display. I even brought some hot chocolate for us to bribe the kids to being good. It worked! Bribery has been my best weapon as a parent...I mean rewards have been such helpful tools. Christmas morning, the kids checking out what Santa left in their stockings.
Sometime around the 7 month mark Vanessa started to rock back and forth and kind of lean forward enough to move. She now has the crawling thing pretty good. She still kind of looks like a robot and sometimes she'll get her arm caught underneath her but she is definitely moving. It's nice but kind of annoying...now I have to actually make sure she doesn't make her way to the stairs or into the trash or some kind of trouble.
