Karate chops of happiness

When Lois is happy, she will raise one or both arms in the air and bring them swiftly down to her sides in a karate-like chop. It's a karate chop of happiness that always means "More of that!"

This is not to be confused with the karate chop that says "I make my own decision!" or "I'll do it myself!" Sometimes Lois is hungry but she wants to put that bottle in her mouth by herself, so she will karate chop that bottle away from her mouth if you try to do it for her.

Here are a few recent pictures. I'll try to upload a karate chop of happiness video soon.

Perfect Lois grin.

Lois loves her new stackable cups.

Lois thinks her feet are amazing. She's constantly grabbing them.

I hear selfies are all the rage. So here's a family selfie. The black fur in the front is Dunkel.

Lois is figuring out how to turn pages in books. And then she shoves the pages into her mouth.

Little Miss Lois

On Friday morning, I noticed a tiny little tooth in Lois's mouth. No more toothless grins. Our little girl is teething, but so far hasn't been anything but her normal, happy self. Fingers crossed that the rest of her teeth come in so easily!

Here's quick shot of Little Miss Lois from this weekend. She's wearing a gray sweater and black pants -- definitely her mom's daughter.

A night out for the adults

This fall marks the 20th anniversary of my law firm. So Rob and I had a fancy night out at the firm party. Just because we're parents doesn't mean we can't still get a little posh every now and then!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! The strawberry was just a pre-Halloween outfit. Lois was officially a pea in the pod in celebration of her Pez heritage. Dunkel also joined in on the fun.
