All over it

I've been talking about my birthday party for months now! (This is quite a departure from years past when parties made me cry and I didn't want to do anything.) I wanted to celebrate my birthday on a holiday just like Mommy, so we had a party on New Year's Eve. I ran around in circles with all of my buddies, and blew whistles all night long. I told Mommy that my favorite part of the evening was blowing out the candles of my Diego birthday cupcakes!

Waiting for Rudolph

I can't wait for Christmas to come! In the meantime, I enjoyed celebrating Christmas Eve with my "boyfriend / fiance" and future in-laws!

At the Nutcracker Ballet

I went to the Nutcracker ballet for the first time and I loved it! I learned the story of the Nutcracker in my ballet class, so I was familiar with Magical Uncle Drosselmeyer and the Nutcracker's battle with the Mouse King. I sat patiently through the whole thing, completely mesmerized. (I always tell Mommy about the kid behind us that said after 10 minutes, "I want to go HOME!") When Uncle Drosselmeyer waved his wand and made a bright spark into the air to shrink the toys, I was in awe. There was just a short bit in the 2nd half (around the "Sugar Plum Fairy") when I got squirmy and a kid behind me expressed exactly what I was thinking by saying loudly, "They're doing the same thing AGAIN!!". My favorite parts were the finale when everyone was dancing, and seeing the Nutcracker. I now ask Daddy for his iPhone every chance I get so I can watch segments of the Nutcracker on YouTube. And can anyone out there tell me why they say "Aaaaah"??? (in the "Waltz of the Snowflakes", now officially named "the Aaaaah part".)

Little kisses

I had a "dropoff" playdate with George for the first time. Mommy usually stays with me, and at first I really wanted Mommy to stay, but then my excitement for playing with George overpowered my need to have Mommy around. We were seen giving each other little kisses, and putting our arms around each other (just like in school where we're reportedly inseparable). Then at one point George took his shirt off, and asked me to do the same! This is where I had to draw the line! Good thing we are 3 not 13 - otherwise everyone would be freaked out! For now, it's just sweet.
