Calvin with Santa

We had a ward Christmas party and Santa was there. Calvin was a little unsure of him but he just sat there in awe. I am still trying to decide whether I want Calvin to believe in Santa, I mean lets be honest it is lying to my kid - but it is so fun and a good way to bribe him, I just remember it was sort of tramatic for my sister when she found out there was no Santa. But I also don't want Calvin to ruin Santa for all the other kids. Well I will have to think more about this one, I still have time.

Christmas Photos by Doretha

Doretha Price took some great photos of us yesterday. She is so nice and talented. She took about 1,000 and there were some great ones, which is saying something cause Moema and I are the least photogenic people on earth. Calvin was in a bad mood too! I think I am going to send out Christmas cards like the one above. Thanks so much Doretha!!!

Wild and Free

It is like branding a cow everytime we try and change his diaper. He hates it! He wiggles free and crawls off as fast as he can. He loves being naked I guess.

Great Indian food

Calvin loves being upside down

He also loves Indian Food

He tried to eat this whole nan by himself

With Daddy

Moema and I love Indian food and found a great place in Honololulu, Maharani Indian. It was amazing, I wish we had found it earlier! They give big portions and it isn't too expensive. We then went to the Indian Store to get ingredients so I can make my own, pretty ambitious.

9 months old!

I am nine months now!

Things I love:
1. Daddy - okay so now when I am holding him he reaches for daddy and doesn't want to come back, I am a little offended after all I have done for him! But of course the exception to this rule is the middle of the night when he will only be held by mom and no one else - how convenient for dad! He used to only love me and now it seems it is the age of dad, when he walks in the door his face lights up and he holds his arms up to be held. I figure it is because dad doesn't do any of the mean things I do to him - like change his diaper (which he hates), put him to bed, or wipe his face.
2. Eating - Calvin loves food more than any baby I have ever seen - we can' t sit down to a meal without him gazing up at us like a dog begging for food and doing his little "MMMMMM" beg until we give in. It is not that I don't feed him enough, I mean this boy can eat almost as much as me! He will certainly have to go into sports so he doesn't get huge when he older:) He always knows when we have food, he gets really excited when he sees one of us eating yogurt.
3. Crawling - he has started to full on crawl now, as soon as grandma and grandpa walked in the door he started and now he is on the move! I need to do some major baby proofing.
4. His hands, he loves playing with his hands, putting them in his mouth and he is especially using them to shovel in food:) He is really good with his hands which dad takes as a sign of his future sports sucess
5. Shaking his head no. He doesn't know what it means yet but he loves shaking his head, it is one of his very few tricks. We are still waiting for him to figure out clapping and bye-bye.
5. The ocean, he has a cute little floaty and he loves just relaxing in the waves.

Things I hate:
1. Diaper Change
2. Sleeping in my crib - but Mom makes me!
3. Rice
