Day 210 - December 21, 2012

Today was a very special day for our girl.  If you know Adelyn, you know she loves Minnie Mouse.  Her obsession started a few months ago when we took her into the Disney store on the studio lot.  She wandered the store, weaving through shelves of toys and racks of clothing, until she stumbled upon a tower of plush characters.  Her face lit up as she grabbed for a pretty pink Minnie Mouse.  Aside from a few trips to Disneyland, Adelyn hadn't really seen many Disney characters up to this point.  She had never watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse or any other TV shows or movies featuring Minnie for that matter.  But on that day, as she stared up at the dozens of colourful plush characters, she decided that Minnie was, by far, her favourite.  Adelyn sleeps with Minnie every night and holds her hand tightly each morning when we lift her out of the crib.  Adelyn takes Minnie to the park, makes sand castles with her, pushes her on the swings and sends her racing down the slide.  Minnie goes everywhere with us, so you can understand why today was such a special day for Adelyn.

Today, Adelyn met the real Minnie Mouse.

Russi Taylor has been the voice of Minnie Mouse for 27 years!  It was an honour to run into her today and hear a little bit about her life.  What a unique opportunity to watch Russi interact with Adelyn in Minnie's famous voice!  I only wish I had had the video camera.

You never know who you'll run into at the studio lot.

P.S. Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Day 202 - December 13, 2012

This morning, I told Adelyn that we were going to go out to do some Christmas shopping for Daddy.  As I packed the diaper bag with snacks, Adelyn sat Minnie down in her shopping cart and began searching the house for the perfect gift for Daddy.

Here's what she found.

A tub of chocolate chip cookie dough and some card games!

Looks like someone really knows her Daddy!

And we're back!

A few weeks ago I received an error message saying that I had reached my quota for photos on this blog.  I thought 365 Days of Life Behind the Lens had come to an end.  But luckily, thanks to some insight from my sister, I found a way around the issue and can continue sharing our days with you.

In preparation for American Thanksgiving, Adelyn made a turkey headband at storytime this morning.

She's such a little ham!

Uh, I mean, turkey!

Day 172 - November 13, 2012

In the last month or so, Adelyn has become obsessed with belly buttons.

Her belly button,

 Daddy's belly button,

her babies' belly buttons.

And she's not afraid to lift my shirt in public

 and show the world that, yes, Mommy has a belly button too.
