chesnuts roasting on an open fire...

Hard to believe this was taken exactly one year ago today.
Not too much has changed since then.
Lulu is still curious about chestnuts.
Only now she tries to offer them to the squirrels in the backyard.
That sweater still fits, but I no longer have to roll the sleeves up.
She looks pretty much the same to me.
The other day she said to me "mommy you don't want me to grow?"
"I can be your baby forever?"
wonder where she got that crazy idea? ;
As much as it's hard to say good-bye to babyhood/toddlerhood, I do love having my sweet little girl.
I'm amazed by her each day and there are times when I honestly can't get enough of her.
Her vocabulary is probably the biggest change to date.
Over the holidays especially, it's been so sweet listening to her chatter away.
We took her to the zoo today and on ride there, while big daddy and I were attempting an uninterrupted conversation, Lulu pipes up in the backseat "'scuse me mommy"
"yes sweetie" for the 42nd time.
"um um um um um...I love you" great is that?
oh yes and how could I forget?
Those sweet words were followed by "are we there yet?" for the 73rd time.
not that I was counting.

I'm torn between babyhood and toddlerhood also. But sitting down for tea with Bumper and being told how beautiful I am (or should I say boooootyfull) makes the growing up part a bit easier.

Happy Holidays Petite Gourmand and Lulu.

I still love the love yous. They just melt you, don't they? I'm so glad Pumpkinipe finally figured out she'd get a better reesponse to that than the I don't love yous.
