diners' club.

What a big day for Leah - 105 degrees in Seattle, hottest day on record here... We enjoyed a break at Starbucks to sign for our NEW HOUSE! And she had her first dinner out at Ram to celebrate her grandparents' anniversary!

Grandma and Grandpa!

Grandma Lauren and Grandpa Mark are here! It sure is hot today - fortunately, through the power of overnight shipping, we should have two more box fans soon.

oh gosh it's hot.

Leah had a really hard time sleeping last night because it was so hot. Fortunately, I got to sing a lot of "hot hot hot" which cracks her up.

A fortress of boxes (with kittens on top) is starting to surround Leah's downstairs crib.

Jump jump jumperoooo!

We picked up Leah's "new" jumperoo today - she seems to love the bright colors, but doesn't quite have the urge to jump yet. :)

Friday, July 24, 2009


In 24 hours, Leah will be the proud owner of a gently-used jumperoo!

Packing, packing, and more packing.

That's all we've been up to this week. :)

Movin' and doin'.

We went to visit a family selling a great dining table that we love - Leah came with and met their two little girls... it's amazing how different a 3 month old and a 6 month old are! Also, Grandma and Grandpa will be here in 1 week!!

Silly girl.

This weekend, Leah learned how to stick out her tongue whenever she wants to. She loves to watch us and stick hers out when we stick ours out at her.

More shopping?

We had a family shopping trip to IKEA today, and Leah is pooped. Probably resting up for when Daddy gets back from his race. :)

1 little monkey jumpin' on the bed

Leah and mommy went mattress shopping today for the bed in the guest room, which will eventually become Leah's big girl bed (in the way way future).

Green Lakers

We walked around Green Lake today... we want to be sure we get our fill before we move in 2 weeks!

We met baby Paige today at playgroup... We hung out with Paige's mommy and daddy when they were pregnant with her, and we were pregnant with Leah.

3 months!

Leah is 3 months old today!

Daddy is too much fun.

When daddy is home for the weekend, Leah gets too excited to sleep... Until he goes back to work, and she sleeps all day.

Big Comfy Couch

Leah helped us pick out a great new couch for the Sweet Pea house today... We're looking forward to lots of snuggling on it in the coming years. :)

Daddy's Biggest Fan

Leah went to her first bike race today - she loved laying on her blanket and watching the fun-colored bikes and jerseys whiz by.

Her hand.

As I was watching the series finale episode of Gilmore Girls on Wednesday night (and Logan proposed to Rory, just like he did the last 4 times I've watched that episode,) I realized that one day, a guy might call our house asking to marry our sweet Leah.

I just hope that he's as great a man as Leah's daddy is.

Laundry Day

It's laundry day today, and it's obvious. Leah is wearing a pink onesie with olive green stretchy pants, and mommy is wearing a green t-shirt with red running shorts. And we're going to the mall like this.

Crafty gal

We went to Joann Fabrics today to scout out some fabrics for the new house... Leah LOVED seeing all the colors of the fabrics as I pushed her through the aisles in her stroller - she was cooing and smiling the whole time.

Behind bars

Leah slept in her crib for the first time last night! (And mommy even slept in her own bed.)

Red White and Blue!

We celebrated the 4th of July with our friends Mike & Lisa... We drove out to Redmond to visit our new house, and had a yummy picnic lunch at Marymoor Park.

Friday, July 3, 2009


Mike and Lisa came to visit Leah today - Leah was so excited that she could hardly sleep... all day!

Yankee Doodle Sweetheart

Leah and I went out in search of a sweet 4th of July outfit from Old Navy... And we're getting excited for our BFFs Mike & Lisa to visit tomorrow!!

Leah's World

In the last week, Leah has become so much more aware of her surroundings... today at playgroup, she was sitting on my lap like a big girl, watching the other kids... and at the store, she was cooing at the brightly colored toys in the kid aisle...
