Christmas spirit

This year after putting it off for far too long, we decided not to put the tree up.  The idea of all of our ornaments being shattered was a bit too much to handle, so we thought we'd all be safer without it up.  But that means our house wasn't looking very festive.  So last night Hibby and I got busy crafting and made a toddler safe Christmas tree!!  

We cut it all out of felt and stuck it to the door with removable poster tape.  I found the idea on this blog-

Cameron loves pulling the ornaments and lights off and putting them back on.  (And pulling the whole thing off the door.... But we're working on that!)

It's really nice to have a tree that we don't have to worry about being destroyed!  Now it feels a little more like Christmas around here!

healthy habits

Cameron's favorite activity lately is brushing his teeth.  

A couple of nights ago he started pounding on the bathroom door.  I was trying to figure out what he was up to.  Then he went to the kitchen and tried to pull his step stool over to the bathroom.  He decided that was too heavy, so he gave up and pointed up the stairs.  "Duh, Mom!  I'm ready for bed but I need to brush my teeth first!" 

We've been busy practicing different parts of the body.  He loves pointing to his nose and showing off his belly button.  It's amazing how fast he catches on to things.  He knows where most of his toys go so he helps clean them up most nights before bed.

We had another prenatal appointment yesterday.  I'm currently 15 weeks.  Baby's heartbeat sounded good!  She said it was about 130-135.  I can't remember what Cameron's was so I can't make a prediction of boy or girl.  ;)  we have our big appointment with ultrasound next month, but we haven't decided if we want to find out yet!

And now we are off to visit Santa!
