A HITLO Teagan!

Since I'm at home sick today I decided to bang this thing out. Enjoy!

A Holiday In The Life Of Teagan Tesla!

This year my family decided to go on an epic adventure over winter break! The first leg of our trip was to southern California to meet up with my Daddy's family.

We kept our family tradition of taking a Christmas Eve hike. We all made it all the way up a big hill even though my Auntie (MommyD) is busy making me a cousin. She's wicked tough. I may have slept on the way up but I sure did enjoy the view from the top.

Then we had a royal Christmas Eve feast with my Daddy's extended family. I got to open exactly one million presents from a bunch of people I'd never met. Check out my Christmas dress made by cactuswren!

Here's the very awesome handmade wooden stacker toy my mommy got me off Etsy that I only played with for 30 seconds.

I was a little overwhelmed by all the giving.

I decided to nurse through the family photo shoot.

I think Mommy was also a little overwhelmed by all the giving because she kept drinking these nasty smelling drinks. She wouldn't let me eat the olives out of them. My Mommy doesn't know how to share.

The next leg of the grand tour was to visit my Mommy's family in New Jersey.
I got to open lots more presents. Mommy said "Joy. More stuff." and then drank more smelly stuff.

I actually got to use my winter coat!

We visited the NJ Children's Museum, which I clearly loved.

Mommy had fun there.

I was SOOOO excited to get on this horse and then wouldn't give up a smile once it was my turn.

Despite hating my crib at home I really wanted to sleep in this one.

For reasons I cannot explain, this pink thing signaled to me that I must twirl.

We went for a hike with my Grandpa, my Aunt, and my Aunt's boyfriend (aka my future Uncle, so says my Aunt and Mommy).

I did some bouldering. This is my bouldering face. It is reminiscent of my Mommy's bouldering face, which no one has seen in over two years.

Group shot!

We celebrated my Grandpa's birthday with pizza and cookies!!

Grandpa is like super old so he needed help opening his gifts. I am now a pro present opener.

My Aunt's face needed rearranging.

That's better.

On New Year's Eve, I played on the playground that my Mommy played on when she was a baby. She swears the playground equipment is vintage 1980s.

Mommy played too!

For the final leg of our trip, we headed into New York City. On the first day, we took a stroll in Central Park.

I ate a puree pouch while we waited for a train in the subway.

This is the view from atop my Grandpa's apartment building. Grandpa has a sugar mama. That building that looks like a rocket pop is the Empire State Building.

We visited the 911 memorial site. Sadly, we didn't get to see much. It's not quite finished yet despite all the hooplah about it being finished.

We saw a really cool car!

We went to a train display at the Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. I looooooved it soooo much I pooped myself.

That's the Guggenheim modeled out of fungus. How freaking cool is that?

Mostly I loved the trains.

I had a blast on the real train back to Grandpa's.

Finally, we visited the Liberty Science Center right before my Daddy headed home (and took the camera with him). I made fishy faces at the fishies.

And my parents proved, once again, that they are serious nerds.

Thanks for letting me share my holiday!!

Looks like you had an amazing holiday! I would have cracked up with all that traveling, though! Teagan is adorable, and my 4 yo loves her monkey hat (I do, too, but she was the one that jumped up and down when she saw it)

You should have seen how much junk my kids got from other people for Christmas. It was entirely ridiculous. It is actually to the point where I feel like I can't buy them the things I want to, because I know they will get too much from our families.

You got some GREAT pictures!
I love that wood stacker.
And I love how she's BFing in the family photo. Can your family talk to ours about how BFing isn't just to be hidden away in a dark alley? I got so many comments from them when I was home in November because I refused to use a cover anymore. :roll: Sorry I got off topic a bit.... I'm still trying to figure out that fungus picture.

No one in our families said boo about me BFing. Except for my Dad who would occasionally yell out "Quit feeding that baby!" He was just messing with me though because of all the lactivist posts I put on FB. BFing is just normal in our families. I imagine I might hear a peep or two if she's still nursing next Christmas.

The train exhibit was full of historical NYC buildings modeled from plant and fungus materials. They were all really really cool but the Guggenheim was my favorite for sure.

Looks like a great holiday, and I love the owl hat. I wish we got weather cold enough to put cute hats on.

Even just a bit cool, though we all hibernate below 20 degrees here. I love looking at winter clothing and wishing I could buy cute jackets, scarves and hats. I was away for 3 weeks in winter in a colder part of the state one year and I loved rugging up in my jacket, gloves and scarf each morning to walk to training. I didn't have time to find a cute hat that time. I also love hats but have no reason to wear them here.
