Malina is 8 months old!

During the last month, Malina experienced her first Hanukkah, first Christmas and first New Year’s. She didn’t quite grasp the concept of unwrapping presents, but she thoroughly enjoyed eating all the pretty bows and playing with her wonderful new gifts!

Malina also had lots of fun visiting with Great Grandma Barbara, Great Grandpa Bob and Cousin Rachel in Livermore on Christmas Day and visiting Great Grandma Florence in Los Angeles over New Year’s weekend. While in LA, Malina toured the Santa Monica Pier and experienced her first carousel ride! She also enjoyed a few days of company from Grandma Robin, Grandpa Ken and Aunt Emily and a visit from our newly engaged friends, Brian and Megan.
