Hailey is the big cousin. She would take Cora's paci and put in it her mouth (or at least try to) only to take it right back out again.

Oh brother!

That is my Grandma in the background. She is one of my most favorite women in the whole wide world!

Cora had her first DeWeese Christmas gathering. It was crazy, as always. We all crammed into Grandma's apartment, ate too much food and played several games of Bingo. Bingo is a serious game at the DeWeese get togethers. We are out for blood so don't you dare try and Bingo more than once or you will suffer the consequences from those that have the sucky cards.

Cora and Hailey got a super cool COACH hat and mitten set from my super cool stylish cousin Jaymee. I am sure those little white poof balls on top are rabbit fur. They are THAT cool! THANKS JAYMEE!

Happy 10 months baby girl!

Today is Cora's 10 month birthday. I can't believe this time last year, I was big and pregnant waiting for 2 months go past so I could meet my baby girl. In 2 months she'll be a year old. She won't have to take formula anymore....yippee! She won't *have* to take a bottle anymore. My baby won't be a baby anymore. How sad is that? She is the sweetest thing ever.

I love it when she:

- gets SOO excited when I get home from work
- is sitting in her high chair and she sees me getting her cheerios out of the cabinet and she starts kicking her legs and holding out her arms, smiling the whole time
- only wants me to hold her in a crowd of people
- wants me to rock her to sleep
- laughs when she sees the cat
- wrinkles up her nose when she doesn't like something
- gets soo excited when she sees any kind of paper sitting with in her reach.
- loves her Daddy
- laughs when I kiss her nose
- crawls as fast as she can to get away from us when she is caught with paper and then shoves it in her mouth so we can't get it unless we do the finger sweep
- says Mama
- says Dada
- dances to her Learning table songs
- likes to eat my hair when I come home from work

I thoroughly enjoy being a mom. She has made my life a better place and I thank God for her every day!

I am a MOM

I am officially christened into Motherhood. Cora was up all night with the stomach flu. What a sad sight, seeing your little one throw up like that. What was so sad about it was she would get up on her hands and knees, puke and then turn her head to the side and try and lay right back down. Bless her heart. I would have to change out the towels, wipe off her mouth and *then* let her lay down. By about 5:00 am she was dry-heaving. It was pitiful. She would cry out after she would be breathless from the dry-puke. I prayed to God that he would take the flu from her and give it to me 10 times as bad. I am sure I am next.

It keeps her occupied

Cora has a cabinet. She usually takes everything out of it, throws it everywhere and then plays with it for a good 30 minutes. It makes a mess, yes, it isn't a big deal, it takes just seconds to put it all back... it's a tupperware cabinet, you just have to throw everything back in and shut the door real fast so it doesn't all come falling back out. And anyways, that's 30 minutes I can use to start supper, read the paper, do some laundry or some other task that usually takes 3 times as long if Cora wasn't occupied with something. I remember when my nephew Max was her age and he had a cabinet that he would climb into and close the door. Sometimes I would show up over at their house, look around and ask, "Where's Max?" And Kristi would say, "Um, I think he's in his cabinet." I would walk over and knock on the door and he would open it up and look at me as if to say, "Yeeeess? Can I help you?" I would laugh and he would slam the door shut. It was the funniest thing. I am so glad that Cora has a cabinet she can hide in and pretend it's her little house. Ah, to be a kid again.

I don't think Cora has any idea how darn cute she is. Kevin can't wait until she gets bigger and can sit and watch football together, wearing their Packer apparel. Um, hello, she's a GIRL! Girls don't like football except to watch their butts when they walk around the field. I even told my Dad that one time while we sat and watched football one Sunday afternoon. He looked down at me and said, "You like watching football?" And I replied, "I like the way their butts look in their pants." I think I might have bursted his bubble a little bit in a couple ways. #1, I like boys butts...he wasn't ready for that #2, I would never enjoy football the way it was intended. Oh well, I am a girl, girls don't like football (except to watch their butts!)

Sorry Kevin, let's hope the next one is a boy!
