After Juliet's birthday, Dan and I decided she needed her own play kitchen. For Christmas we bought her one, and she fell in love.
We went to visit all the family in the Midwest, and Juliet formed a love/hate relationship with dogs of all kinds. She is so excited by them and wants nothing more than to pet them and play with them, but she is so terrified at the same time that she just can't quite bring herself to do it. This results in her maniacally screaming, "Buppy!" and dancing just out of the dog's reach.
We played a lot with family.
We celebrated sweet Lilli's birthday.
We celebrated dear Haley's birthday, but Juliet didn't like the Sorting Hat so much.
And Juliet and Kaylie formed a lasting bond.
All in all, it was a wonderful Christmas - even if I was gigantically pregnant (more on the result of that, later.)
