We have not, in fact, fallen off the face of the planet! We are still around.
I realized it has been a full three months since our last post, and while not too much has happened around here, Karsie has continued to grow and thrive.
We spent a lovely holiday visiting family and enjoying time off. Karsie loved the idea of Christmas and we embraced both the holy side and the Santa side. She loved playing with her nativity set and talking about the key players. She would sing to Baby Jesus. She also named the wise men. We had Sarah, Muck, and Puck. She enjoyed having her elf, Happy, hide in a new spot each night as well. And, of course, on Christmas morning, she loved having presents... and she was spoiled! Lots of gifts from friends and family to play with.
Karsie has been doing a great job eating and growing. She has discovered, and fallen in love with popcorn! She especially likes flavored popcorn. She also loves hot dogs, chicken, quinoa, tater tots, EGGS, carbs in all forms- especially potato chips and french fries, and cookies.
She is a little jumping bean! She loves to jump... a past-time she learned from her Papa and has perfected in honor of Peppa Pig. Yo Gabba Gabba has been replaced by the British pig (we are quite happy with this transition)! She has also discovered a few classic Disney animated features. She loves Little Mermaid ("yittew nermaid"), Beauty and the Beast, and Tangled. She also loves Toy Story and Monster's Inc. Most of which she was introduced to during a nasty bout of the stomach flu that held our whole family (plus visiting Grandma and Auntie Mandy) hostage.
Karsie loves to do "paints" and "chalking" at home. She is anxious for summer so she can go in the "swimming water" too. She is so much fun to be around, and though she has moments of being two and three-quarters, she is typically a joyful little girl. She cracks us up all the time with the things she says and her little personality.
