Its December

And its COLD!

The non-profit I work for hosts a fund raiser every December called the Christmas in Salem Home Tour and we were out and about all day participating in the Christmas cheer. I left a few hours before Aaron, who stayed home with Tessa while she napped. As I was waiting to meet up with him I could see a man with his little papoose baby all snuggled up in his coat and with her little pink hat-ed head bobbing along. Her body was very warm...but her face was very cold. The poor little thing has never felt anything cold except the little drops of reflux medicine we give her twice a day. She was rather befuddled, but gave me a warm winter smile nevertheless.

I was only able to go with Tessa and Aaron for one house before I scampered off to do a little task, so Aaron got to experience the ego boosting fun of walking around with a cute baby. This was emphasized since there were no other babies that we saw visiting the houses...and by the fact that she was so bundled up that only her big blue eyes and pink cheeks were showing. According to Aaron she loved the Christmas trees and the fancy china in the houses, and everybody loved her.

The camera didn't work in the cold outdoors so I couldn't get a picture of how darling she looked. But when I got home about 15 minutes after Aaron he was standing like this with Tessa in the kitchen...waiting either for me to get home and take the picture, or for me to help him get her out of the Bjorn without waking her...not sure which.

How sweet! She's so precious. It was cold and rainy here this weekend too. By the way, the basement's been mud and taped! :)
