just another afternoon

liz gogolewski came by to see addie yesterday...her visit was short but nice nonetheless! today i captured addie in some huge smiles while focusing on a musical-lighting star toy. she loves to look at it and kick it and make it turn on the sound! also, you'll notice that as of this past weekend, addie has learned to suck/bite on her fingers and hand. she can actually get the whole fist in her mouth!

addie's first hike

we took addie and the dogs up in Las Trampas for a hike this afternoon. carrying a 9 pound baby on your chest while hiking up the hills was no problem...coming down, a different story. my calves are killing me! - JP

she looks like her daddy!

well, i have been staring at this picture of JP for a few days and come to the conclusion that yes, she looks like her father! this is the only baby picture of JP i know of that exists in our household--and finally noticed a resemblence to one of us! i think she still has my eyes (they are still very blue in color) and of course, she inherited my father's vulcan-style ears. i think she's beautiful!!!!!

vulcan or elf?

JP here: i've tried to be silent, but i can hold it no longer. please, i'm asking all family members to dig back into their recessed memories, do you know if we have any vulcan or elf blood in our families? i present my concerns--addie's ears:

live long and prosper, or....well, what the hell do elves say anyway??

Mike, Kerri, & Audrey come to Cali for a visit!

as you can see, we were having a great time! we got some great photos of addie and audrey (15 mo. old) in their matching outfits that grandma jo bought them. audrey really enjoyed listening to uncle JP play the guitar--she danced for him and help him strum the strings! eventually she would point to the guitar in the corner and just start dancing! she was too cute! also, audrey really wanted to help feed cousin addie, and was a big help.

More Addie

aaahhhhh, more of addie for you! yesterday, addie had some good naps, in which i took a couple of pix. she sleeps well on her tummy as most of you know, and she loved sleeping in the 'boppy' on the sofa!

addie also had her first lengthy nap on her back (a full 2 hours!) and i had to take the picture since she looked so cute in the cool outfit uncle barry bought her! overall, having good days and nights with her and anxiously awaiting all of her "firsts", ie. sleeping thru the night and rolling over!

First Day Alone w/ Addie

well, now that my mom is gone and JP is back at work...i had my first day alone with addie here at the house! it has gone beautifully - she's keeping to her schedule mostly, and only crying or wimpering when she's wet/full of pooh or hungry. she's eating about every 3 hours and for the past few nights, she's slept the first shift of 4-5 hours straight, then on to a 3.5-4 hour shift thereafter! this isn't so bad, unless she jinx me and has a bad night tonight! ha ha!

we had an outing at 2pm today to meet with Chuck, a retired police officer, to pick up a few items for a Tip A Cop to benefit Special Olympics. anyway....enjoying every minute of addie!
