Trent asked Santa if Teryk could sit on his lap and he made a disgruntal and annoyed face. Too bad the real Santa couldn't be there to get his picture taken! Luckily, Teryk didn't even notice the Santa was slightly grumpy and he was more than excited to have told "Santa" his Christmas wish.

My camera is wonderful and can capture Teryk in all his crazy jumping and running! I was using my phone to take pictures and occasionally pulled out the camcorder. The simplicity is excellent and I even have a case that wraps around my belt loop! I got a smokin' deal and glad the sales lady showed me the clearence section.
Swifty still loves her bottles, every once in a while. I couldn't get her to drink them for a while so I only let her have the pleasure two or three times a day. This makes her drink the entire bottle and I don't have to follow her milk puddles around with a wash cloth (as much).
I was trying to record Swift as she stood straight up on the floor by herself. She did it about five times before she quite right as I got the camera out! Anyway, Teryk kept singing a song so I tried to catch that instead. Sorry for my wierd noise at the beginning; I was trying to delay him to start singing when I pushed record. He says "chao" and apparently that is part of what Lightning Mcqueen says. *BTW, you have to turn off the music at the bottom.

Swift, as many around her know, has a tendency to growl for every expression. Before a coo or babble, she would give a random, nearly evil sounding, growl numerous times a day. This noise has slowly transformed into a unique growl that occurs for every occasion. There is a happy growl, sad growl, angry growl, and teasing growl. If Swift is happy and giggly, a cute, nose scrunched growl would come out to show her excited attitude. The sad growl occurs when I lay her in bed when she feels unready and abandoned (go figure); resulting in a loud, offended growl. The angry growl usually comes with a bite attempt that appears most often when Teryk is in the vicinity. My favorite is the teasing growl as she simply wants people to laugh. Swift is growing so fast and amuses me no matter which growl emerges.

If you can't tell, Swift's ponytail is green to look like a pumpkin. I sewed Teryk's costume with no pattern and was lucky it didn't fall apart by the end of the night.
