Best of... (Oct-Dec)


Nugget started facing forward in her new car seat, while enjoying reading books!

She discovered flowers in our yard, and our neighbors yard...

and everywhere else! She loves to smell them!

The nugget also discovered the joys of carrying around {anything} that she could put "stuff" into...

 {i.e. sand in buckets at the beach}

The end of October brought Auntie Mel's baby shower, 
which enabled Nugget to play with Nana, 

and Auntie "mama to be".

 For Halloween, Nugget enjoyed the BOO parade, dancing and running into the street,

and had a HOOT trick or treating!


Nugget enjoyed her first museum trip at the Natural History Museum. She visited the chocolate display and the horse display, among a few others. 

She spent time with her {step} cousins in Temecula, so much play that she was very worn out!

The nugget always has a ball at toddler class, 

and enjoyed being able to snack off mommy's Thanksgiving food at the Beckman's.

She jumped, bounced, and climbed her way through a rock-n-tumbles class, 

and became a cousin to Hallie

whilst being babysat by her G&G Young, 

so the hubs and I could celebrate his President's club achievement in Las Vegas.


The nugget was able to meet her cousin for the first time!

She explored at Birch Aquarium and really enjoyed touching a sea cucumber and starfish.

She spent time with her buddy, playing in Balboa Park, 

and ran around in her track suit.

December nights brought the nugget her first carousel ride, which she loved!

 The nugget created painted Christmas cards in toddler class, and thoroughly enjoyed the art.

Meeting Santa at the La Mesa holiday parade was not as fun as...

listening to the carolers and seeing loud trucks.

As long as the nugget has something to snack on, 
she tolerates the jogging stroller while mommy runs.

Jungle Bells at the zoo was fantastic and full of wonderful holiday lights.

Thanks to Nana, we now have a play kitchen that provides much entertainment, 

along with a new music set from the hubs.

Nugget spending quality time with Nana.

 It has been fun reminiscing through 2012, and thinking of how the Nugget has grown.
