Sorry, I’m too tired to edit much so I basically picked them all. The pumpkins we carved Halloween 2006. I think mine is the bottom. Driving in awful Seattle rush hour traffic. Circa fall 2006. Two weeks old! Two months! Welcome to town. Also I don’t think I’ve ever posted a picture of Ali’s forkedRead more
On Tuesday we had the great honor of accompanying Shayla to her birthday lunch. Cynthia and Joel (her parents) had just returned from their two-week honeymoon cruise the day before. It was Shayla’s first time meeting Ali and she was soooo cute. And, in general, Shayla is so funny! She kept me laughing the entireRead more
Remember my cousin Kari from the baby shower? She was about six weeks behind me with baby Abi…or so she thought. Isaac Trey Lewis was born August 14th, weighing in at 7lbs. 11oz. A he is very much a boy! Sunday (less than two weeks after Isaac’s birth) Tyler and Kari hosted a BBQ toRead more
We came down Friday morning to spend a long weekend at my parents, seeing family and showing Ali off. We were glad to be taking Trista back with us…someone to assist if Ali was cranky in the car. Miraculously, the child slept the whole way down! We timed our departure with her morning nap andRead more
This is the mobile we scored on Tuesday. We saw one just like it yesterday at our local Mommy’N’Me consignment shop. Twenty-five bucks used! The whole thing turns like an amusment park ride and plays fifteen minutes of Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart. Best of all….she loves it! She has just sat and watched it, gurgling,Read more
In the morning sunlight. Seven weeks old. Today we ventured to downtown Seattle where we picked up a kickass mobile from the Baby Boutique (for free). Then we tagged along on some business stuff. Now we’re all enjoying some drama filled America’s Next Top Model reruns. Except for our little sleeping angel.
Two nights could be a fluke, but the night before last Ali slept from eleven-thirty to six-thirty and last night she broke that record by sleeping from twelve-thirty to eight-thirty! Maybe she just picked up on how exhausted I was. The last couple days I’ve felt so much better….even if I’m getting the same amount of sleepRead more
Miss Alizabeth has begun to bless us with her grins. Also, yesterday she weighed in at 9lbs. 14.5oz and measured 21.5 inches! In about an hour we will be picking Aunt Trista up at the train station. She’s staying with us until Friday, then we’re heading down to Oregon for the weekend! We hope toRead more
August 11th was Billie’s birthday, and last night we went out for thai to celebrate. Ali was wearing her new (five-dollar Freddy’s clearance) outfit, bought especially for the event. I wish all the clothes she has could be interchangeable, no matter the size. She has so many adorable dresses for 3 months and over, andRead more
You get a child dressed in the morning. First time she’s worn those pants. Not twenty minutes later. Round two. That bow lasted less than five minutes.
