One more week or so - and she'll be standing and cruising...

Quiet Christmas

It was 3 of us. The baby, pug and I.
After Andrey went to the airport we went for a walk, ate some Xmas pizza (I did anyway), I gave Marina her gift (she was very disappointing that she cannot eat it, so I'll keep it till she has her own room:)
Then she played with her new exciting toys and very steadily crawled across the room for a first time.

The next day I found out that she also can pull herself up on her knees in the crib.
And then Alfred had friends over. Milo the pug came (we missed the old boy, we didn't see him over a year!) accompanied by Dr. J.
Needless to say, Marina was thrilled! Dogs - not so much...

It was a good Xmas. A bit lonely, but good.

Merry Christmas!

To all our friends and family! We love and appreciate you very much. We just don't have time to say it often enough! Thank you for being in our life:)

From the recent conversation with a friend-photographer :"No, I don't shoot babies. I barely shot my own child. I don't like that all pink and fluffy type of pictures..."

And I thought :" Oh no! I forgot about pink and fluffy! I better do some, before  she grows up!"

So I did. The pinkest and fluffiest we could do:)

1.4 Alfreds

I think it's 1.4. Right? She's bigger then last time anyway:)
8 months old!!!!!

Time flies?

I went to Toronto for 1 day, came back - she sprouted a new tooth and trying to eat apples. Next time I go someplace, she'll start walking!

Thanks to Tatiana for help! We are so lucky to have you on our side!
