11 Months!

OMG Austin is 11 months old today! It's hard to believe, the time has flown by. Last Friday night was the community Christmas party for the Tribe I work for and I was thinking about how last year at the party I looked like I was about to pop and everyone kept telling me they thought I would have him within a week. Little did we all know that Mr. was determined to hold out a whole month more!

Last night in the bath tub he pulled himself up to the faucet to see his ducky faucet cover and he let go and stood there for about 3-4 seconds without holding on and balanced perfectly. He did not even fall he just grabbed the side of the tub when he was done. He will be walking soon!

Happy 11 months my baby love!

Santa Photos

We saw Santa at the Kaibab Paiute Community Christmas Party Friday night. Austin did great, he wasn't a bit upset! He saw him again on Saturday at the grocery store, and again was fine, but we didn't have a camera with us for that visit.

Aloha Friday

Here is my question:

What is your favorite Christmas/holiday song?

I have a couple of favorites. Since I am from Colorado I have to hear "Colorado Christmas" by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band each year. I like "Away in a Manger" because when I was a kid in church choir I got to do a solo for the third verse in the Christmas Pageant. For silly songs I like "Leroy the Redneck Reindeer" by Joe Diffie, and a couple of years ago I listened to the Special X station on XM Satellite radio and they played a song called "Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey" that I thought was cute. I miss Special X and wish they would bring that station back.
