Nairi's first Nutcracker viewing

 We have been taking Keira to see the Nutcracker every year since she was 3 or 4 years old. We started out watching the local production and last year watched the Boston Ballet's version. This year Nairi was deemed old enough to go and we headed back to Boston. She loved it and asked me questions every 2 seconds about what was going on and the costumes and the lights and the fake snow. She was very cute.

 The Boston Opera house is super close to Boston Common so we headed to the park for a bit afterwards to check out the playground and watch the ice skaters and see some of the sights and sounds of the city. There is always something so fascinating about a big city like Boston or New York when  its not your day to day view.

The newest reader in the house

 I am a big reader myself and Keira loves to read so I am excited to see the world of reading open up to him.

2 year old coloring

He is crazy good at coloring! He does it with precision just like puzzles. He is funny because his fine motor skills seem better than his gross motor skills. Outside he falls alot, isn't that good at climbing and refuses to pedal a bike. Funny kid!

35 weeks with #5

 This is what 35 weeks looks like when you are on baby number 5. I got my first " Is it twins comment on Sunday"
Most of the baby stuff is ready. Diapers have been purchased, changing table has been set up, teeny tiny pink clothes have been washed and put into drawers.  All that is left its the last min stuff like installing the carseat and setting up the crib and swing and bouncy seat. We are all hoping for a Dec baby but seeing that I am due Jan 5th its more likely we will get a Jan baby.

Christmas Decorations 2015

The advent wreath is on the table, the chocolate calendars have been started. Christmas lists sent to Santa.
