Afternoon at the Park

We spent Sunday afternoon in the park and it was lovely.
The weather is perfect here.
Jackson did a thorough eye exam for Scott.
No problems were found.

Can you see the drool? Hahahaha!

Big Bath!

After a few encouraging words from my friend I have decided to stop using the baby bathtub and let him play in the bathtub almost every night. (I didn't like giving baths before because it was boring and seemed lame.)
Can you tell that Jackson loves this decision?

Evenings are a lot better now that he spends about 30 minutes in the tub instead of me just trying to convince him that bedtime wasn't quite here yet.

Cutest little church goer

I finally decided Jackson was big enough for his white church shirt and he looked so cute!
He loves the camera!

The shirt's a little big

and the tie's a little short...

And he's done with the camera.

Scott had been in China for a week so we were both so happy to come home to him.

He brought Jackson a gift but Jackson mostly liked the bag it came in.

Seriously, isn't he the cutest baby ever?

The Daily Beast

He has grown out of this cute tub.

Why I thought letting him feed himself smashed bananas was a good idea I'll never know.
In my defense: I was really tired that day and Scott wasn't about to argue with me.

Making a mess with Ritz.
He's become more aware of me and less thrilled with strangers, 
hence eating while hugging my leg.

Sunday afternoon nap.

Condo Reno

So we bought a condo and decided to do a bit of remodeling. I promise to post 
before/after pictures but until then here are the pictures of us working.

We tore out the kitchen on Scott's 30th birthday.
I feel like it made him feel more grown up.

Scott and my dad working.

We thought tearing out the soffits would be super easy.
We were wrong.
However, we did it anyway and I'm glad for a foot more of cabinet space!

My dad would NOT stop drawing on the walls!
(He was actually making marks for new outlets or other things.)

Jake tearing out a door.

Our kitchen and closet doors.
At the dump.

And now we're in our 30ies...

The Saturday birthday boy.

The Sunday birthday girl.

We both turned 30 this week and had epic parties:
Saturday was spent tearing out the kitchen.
Sunday Scott flew to China and Cecilie spoke in church.
It's tough growing up...

Happy NINE months!

This little monster is 9 months old now!
He's going and wiggling so much. 
We love everything about him.

He had a checkup on Friday and got rave reviews. 

29.5 in long (59 percentile)
18lb 14oz (24 percentile)
head circumference: 47.8cm (99 percentile)

He has 2 teeth and eats like a champ.
Now if only he would sleep like a champ...

A quick day trip to Santa Rosa

We went with my mom last week to Santa Rosa.
Hailey is into dressing herself, hence the snow bib.

I had lots of help with Jackson.

And then Hailey chose this charming outfit.
She even put on her own shoes...

Oakland Zoo

Last weekend my nephew Rushton turned 5 so we went to the zoo to celebrate!
Jackson hadn't been there before and seemed to have an alright time between naps.
Acting casual (sleepy) after waking up.

Looking intently at some sort of bear.

The bear he was looking at.

Eating plastic.


Rushton and his family.

Cousin love.

And he's awake again.

Talking to the sheep.

We had a great time and love living close to Rushton.
