First events for the baby book

Eleni had her first bath in the big tub with Daddy...

And her first haircut the following day...

Playing catch up

So an Eleni update is long overdue. Little Miss E has been a very busy girl, working on taking naps and sleeping longer (no, still not through the night). In between she has had playdates with her buddies Ruby and Dylan....

Happy Halloween!

Before I get to the Halloween pics, it never ceases to amaze me how dog toys are way more appealing to babies than baby toys...

Okay, back on topic. Today Eleni went to a Halloween party - here are some photos of her and her buddies. The local news station came and did a fluff story with the babies - if you didn't blink, you could see Ruby tugging on Eleni's monkey ears like this:

Fun at the pumpkin patch

We went to the pumpkin patch today with Eleni's buddy Ruby and her parents.

Eleni was super stylish in a sweater knitted by her Nanny Jen.

Fun in a wheelbarrow...

Who needs teethers when you can gnaw on a filthy pumpkin?

It's all fun and games until Daddy's ear starts bleeding

Before the carnage

Misselenious and the Rubinator doing what they do best, looking cute

I don't seem to have as many photos with everyone as I thought - and hoped! Please feel free to forward me any pictures you have from our visit so I can save them.

Splish splash

While we were packing for London....

Eleni got down to her favorite form of mischief, splashing in Minty's water bowl....

Guess it's only fair, given their history...

Fun in the sun - Arizona

You'd never know she was awake for the day at 3am, would you? Hanging out on Nana's front porch

Eleni has a special place in her heart for her Great Aunt Cindi.....

Who needs sleep?

2am - party in Eleni's crib. We got back last week from London and had been in Arizona just before that - she is back to her normal bedtime but refuses to sleep well, since it's far more fun to stand up in her crib. See exhibit A above......

The time is now....

This lucky little girl has got people all over the world who love her, and plenty who have requested lots and lots of updates on her adventures. This will be my attempt to keep everyone posted without flooding inboxes with big attachments. Here we go........
