You may need to brush your teeth after this...

I was inspired by my dear friend, Snarky Marky*, to share this with you today.

My beautiful Monkey got her ears pierced a couple of weeks ago. Her mommy and daddy took her to get her ears pierced and then to see Santa. First, though, they stopped to see my sister at work. She looks pretty happy for a baby who just had her ears pierced a few minutes before this picture, doesn't she?
I don't particularly care for this picture with Santa. I would have liked to just see a close-up of Monkey and Santa, not the whole crazy scene around them.
This is the picture my brother sent me that night, before I knew any of this had happened. The subject line simply said, "Notice anything different?"My brother had Monkey on Christmas Eve, which couldn't have worked out better, since THAT'S the day of our big Italian celebration (The Feast of Seven Fishes) Naturally, Monkey's mother sent her without a headband/bow in her hair, so my mother went into her craft room, and made this one to match her dress. :)
I have this silly app on my iPhone and iPod that lets you play with pictures you've taken. I thought this was too cute.
All the grandkids on Monkey's First Christmas. *sigh* It seriously seems like a month ago that Stud, the oldest grandchild, was propped up on the same couch for pictures on HIS first Christmas.
All my pretty nieces.
I took this the other day while visiting my Monkey. I just threw it in as an added "cuteness" bonus.

*M, can you believe I came up with that all by myself? ;-)

After seeing her and her earrings, I don't know what I was so afraid of all these years.
When your brother grows tired of her, please send her my way.
So beautiful!

She is SO freaking cute...how have you NOT kissed her face off yet?
I LOVE that bow...I just hope she does not have neck problems from it. Don't tell your Mom I said that...I know how those Italian women get. :)
Glad your Christmas was wonderful, you deserve it!

Maria said...

Thank GOD, Liv didn't see this. She is forbidden to get her ears pierced until she is 13 and is already counting down....

Sweet little baby...

Happy New Year!

Merry First Christmas Monkey!

The cousins picture looks a little like my family. I was 23 on my youngest cousin's first Christmas... 3 years later, I added a baby of my own :)

These pictures look fun, but why do you call her 'monkey'? She's real charming with the big bow and pink dress. She's also enjoying the company of Santa Claus. :-)

Sterling, we call her Monkey because I don't want to use her real name, and my brother decided that monkeys were going to be the theme of her nursery. Plus, monkeys are really cute. :) But, NOT as cute as her!! ;-)
