Love that baby body!

My girl loves being in the buff. Here she is strutting her stuff. She is so into books right now. It's great she loves to take books from her bookshelf and then bring them to her little couch. She reads half the day. Of course it's waayy better to read when you are naked. Especially when you are sooo cute.

I took Dani to the SF Zoo last weekend and met up with some other Guat Tots and their momma's. I got to meet Carrie and Grace who also have a blog. Grace is gorgeous and her sweet Mom Carrie took these pics for us.

Brother has an ice cream cone

So...I have been MIA I just realized it has been two weeks since my last post. I apologize for being such a terrible no good blogger. Things have been hectic around here. Steve is doing better. The job search is on and he is hoping to find something soon. IN the meantime our yard is looking really good :-) And all those little projects around the house are finally getting done. Lovin my hubby!

We leave for San Diego in three weeks and I am really looking forward to our long weekend getaway. We will be taking the kids to Seaworld, the Zoo and the Beach. We really need this break and I think it will be much needed fun and relaxation for everyone. Wait...who am I kidding a vacation with a 18month old? Ok, maybe lots of fun but I doubt relaxation is in the cards.

These were taken last week when Tyler got an ice cream cone and Dani found herself feeling a little left out. She promptly tried to help herself to her brother's cone. He did share some but it took a lot of fight and effort on her part.

Big shout out to Julia on her new beautiful girl Abby Grace. You are such a beautiful bunch! Also, happy that Corey and family got to visit their little baby Addy. I talked with Dani's foster Mom in Guatemala last night which was great. It was a thirty minute conversation all in Spanish. I caught about 70% of it so that was good ;-) I also did a lot of "si" and "si, yo entiendo!" even when I had no clue. I would like to take Dani back to visit but I know it will be awhile before we can take her. I want her to be a little older so she can get it and enjoy the trip.

Grey days and a little sunshine too

Well folks... it's been awhile since I posted. Last week was pretty sucky to say the least. Steve was laid off at work. Completely unexpected and a huge blow for all of us. We work for the same company so things are obviously rather awkward at work right now as you can imagine. After a truly icky week and then Daniela being sick we decided to make the best of our weekend. On Saturday we took Dani to the park in the morning where she proceeded to trip and fall landing face first on the edge of a park bench. The result is a nasty bruise along her left cheekbone. In the afternoon we went to Baby Loves Disco. If you don't know about Baby Loves Disco then google and find a location near you. They are awesome events for families held at local nightclub or lounge venues. They have a DJ playing fun pop and dance music for kids of all ages. Think mom's with babies in slings to toddlers and older kids. They serve snacks and drinks for the kids and yummy grown up drinks too. They have bubbles, hula hoops etc. Tons of fun. Do you think my daughter wanted to dance though? No!!!! She wanted to run up and down the ramp leading to the lounge area and then alternate jumping off of the little stair at the top. Making Mom thoroughly crazy and in need of one of those grown up drinks I mentioned before. Sunday we headed to the beach which was completely socked in but lovely anyways. It was Dani's first time at the beach this year and she loved it. We arrived home Sunday night to a cranky little girl who had a 103 degree fever!!! I guess she was still sick. Monday called for a trip to the doctors office and today we are hopefully on the mend. Please send good vibes people. We could use them LOL

On a lighter note, we received a fantastic package from our SBP. Thanks SBP you are wonderful and we were very surprised to note that you also live in CA. Can't wait to find out your identity so maybe we can chat sometime. Your timing could not have been better. We adore the book and the outfits are too cute. I also really like the lotion. Thanks!
