I've been off blogging for about two weeks now...whoops. Things have been busy lately. We (well mostly my sisters) have put together a big surprise 40th birthday party for my sister Kathleen, and we snuck in a bunch of relatives from back East. For most of them it was the first time they met Sabrina, so for a few days her feet never touched the ground as she got passed from one new person to the next. If that was not enough, she got her first tooth on the day of the party, November 7th. Parties, gatherings, restaurants, a new tooth, and not one minute of crankiness out of her. If anything she was in her element; she loves attention and parties. She loves to hear the phrase "Who's gonna wear a pretty dress today?". That's my girl!
Tooth number two made it's appearance yesterday. For the most part, she still hasn't really complained, at least not the way I've heard it described by people who have kids that have gone through this already. It has affected her mood a little though. Today we were going to have our first "official" portrait of the family done. We wanted to wait until Sabrina could sit up good on her own before doing pictures, and she's been doing that for a while now. So we went to Target's portrait center. She was in a good mood, but she absolutely refused to smile. In every shot looks like she's going to kill someone. Not a crying face, but an attitude face. An "Oh no you don't" face. After 30 or so tries, we decided this wasn't going to work, so we're going back to try again on Tuesday. This blog is full of smiling pictures of the girl, and when it comes down to paying for a shot...no dice!
