great weekend, great week ahead!

We had a great fall weekend - lots of snuggling, bike races, snuggling, shopping, snuggling. Today Leah and I are getting ready for visits from Grandma Sue and Grandma Dianne this week!

doctor and dining.

Leah saw the dermatologist at Seattle Children's Hospital today to talk about her birthmark... as we had expected, the doctor told us that it will probably go away, and that we don't need to do anything about it. :)

We also went to Olive Garden tonight. Leah jabbered and played and looked at her books. She's great.

Today Leah was sitting on the couch, in a familiar pose, in a familiar place, in a familiar outfit... here she is at 1 month and 5 months. (yes, she can still wear 0-3 month onesies... and 0-3 month pants... as bermuda shorts. she's just really trendy.)

there was one in the bed and the little one said...

Leah rolled over in her bed this morning. And then got her arm and leg stuck outside the crib. And then yelled about it.

Leah is officially a pro-back-to-front roller. She's done it about 50 times, but I still cheer every time I see her do it.

tiniest thief.

We were at bed bath & beyond today and I heard a shaking sound coming from the stroller. It didn't sound like any of Leah's toys, so I looked down to see what she had. Turns out she had pulled a box of peanut M&Ms off the shelf and was shaking it up and down and smiling the hugest smile. Couple things to note:

1. She has her BFF Lisa's taste in candy.
2. She can and will grab pretty much anything she can reach.

Funny, funny girl.

Leah makes us laugh so much. She does a pretend chewing thing now, as well as some new funny noises and faces. Plus she laughs all the time. (She's supposed to be napping right now, but is giggling instead. Probably playing with her feet.)

Leah had some of my banana today. And just like her tiniest kitten, she loved it. :)

We went to the movies this morning with Kristen & Noelle, Liz & Clara, Julie & Jimmy and Erin & Billy. So much fun.

We spent our rainy day yesterday snuggling inside, and taking a quick trip to Lowe's.

It's a great day for a picnic at the park today. :)

Happy girl.

Leah is such a happy girl. She giggles and smiles so much now - especially when daddy is around. She's been practicing rolling from her back to her front too!

Daddy's Biggest Fan

Today Leah cheered on her daddy at his cyclocross race at Big Finn Hill Park. She met lots of puppies - whenever she sees one, she stretches out her little hand to touch them. Love her.

Out and Around

Thursday we went to our PEPS playgroup, which is always a good time. Friday, Daddy worked from home, and he took a break with us and walked to Grass Lawn Park. Today we're hanging out around the house, taking care of some little projects.

Shopper Deluxe.

Leah took her first trip to Costco today. She rode in the Ergobaby carrier, which meant that for the first half of the trip, she was excited to see everything, and then slept soundly for the second half.

Labor Daybor.

We had a great Labor Day weekend with Mike and Lisa and Penny-Puppy. Leah had a great car trip back, and we spent the rainy Monday inside snuggling with Daddy.

We're in Portland this weekend! We went to Stumptown Coffee today - Leah was bummed that she didn't get to have hot cocoa like mommy did.

Friday, September 4, 2009


We are getting ready for Leah's FIRST roadtrip to see our best best best friends Mike and Lisa and Pennypuppy!

Picnic Basket.

Leah had lunch today with two of her girlfriends, Clara and Lilah (and their mommies.) It was a beautiful day at Grass Lawn Park. :)

holy guacamole.

Leah ate avocado today - when we were done, she was licking it off of her bib, so I think she liked it. :)
