Just Growing..

We had a good weekend. Lately Baby D and I have been going on walks on the weekend. He seems to like them, and eventually falls asleep in the stroller. Saturday we ran around him and I , to develop film, for a walk at the park, then to the grocery store. He was really good the entire time. Then we came home and relaxed and I cooked dinner and my Mom came over. It was a really nice day. Sunday we went to Chris and Julie's in Stockton. Chris and Keith had a playdate so Baby D and I hung out with Julie and Ivy. We had a really good time, so much that I don't think Keith was quite ready to leave but it was getting late. We got home by 9pm. It was a really good day. Ivy is so cute, and so excited about her younger sister's upcoming arrival. I was very happy when Julie went to go get lunch and she stayed with Darrian and I at the house, we had a nice chat about school and all things going on in her world. She is precious.

Today, baby D was jumping in his jumperoo and I guess he just got tired! :)

I am telling you I could stare at him ALLLL day! This was today also.

I will call him mini-me :)

This is blurry but funny, he feel asleep in his swing with his finger in his mouth like this. We were trying to get a picture and he woke up with this look on his face and his finger still in his mouth.

Daddy cracks him up!

Cirque Du Soliel Comes to SF...

For Christmas we got Mom tickets to go see the Cirque Du Soliel Show Kooza. It was two Saturday's ago, her and I went and had a great time. The show was AMAZING! The things these people do are crazy, and mind bending. We left Concord and went to have lunch in Sf, we ate at Momo's which is right across from AT&T ballpark. Food was really good, service was really slow. I took a picture (above) of the heart they have outside their place. These hearts are all over SF in different landmarks, for the "I left my heart in SF" theme. They all have different paintings on them. This one is like an olive because that is Momo's namesake the Martini olive. Too cute. The second picture is the Cirque tent.

More pictures of our fun day out can be seen here:

What a difference a year makes..
I just realized that a year ago today I was laid off by Unisource. What a difference a year makes. I remember thinking I had the carpet pulled out from under me. I remember being so worried about not finding a place I liked, or people I liked to work with. A week later I had a new job, so much closer to home, with wonderful people who I really enjoy working with. I was lucky. Crazy how time flies, and how things change.. and how what sometimes feels like the worse thing possible turns out to be the biggest blessing. :)

Happy Thursday..
Hope you are all having a great week! It is almost Friday. Hard to get back into the swing of a week without a holiday in it :)
We have had a pretty good week, it has been low key for the most part. Seems like everyone is sick. Darrian is getting cuter and cuter by the day, and very inner active. We opened Natalie's Christmas gifts last night, she got us great gifts. She got Darrian the CUTEST little jacket, it is ADORABLE! It is a sweatshirt with fur on the inside, so cute. Also a shirt that says "Ladies Man" which Keith and I thought was pretty cute. She spoiled him (and us), thank you Auntie Natalie!
I put some pictures in here from our trip to SF on Sunday. We went to exchange K's wallet from Gucci and then went to eat at the Cheesecake factory. Darrian actually did really good with it all.

here he is in a cute pj outfit Grandma got him.

Three Months makes a BIG difference!

Saturday I took Darrian to get some 3 month pictures, he is a little older than 3 months (almost 4) but he turned three months right in the heart of Christmas Season so we waited.

I kept going back and fourth on what photographer to use and decided to use the same one we used for the newborn shots. I want to get more photojournalistic shots but I am waiting to find the perfect photographer for that.

Darrian did really good, he was of course a flirt with the photographer. He was all smiles and talking to her which was cute. Although every time he saw the flashes go off, or the camera in front of her face he would look a little serious. We won't get the pictures back for a few weeks but she posted a article on him on her blog, and a slide show.

She has this teacup she takes babies pictures in, the first time she did it he basically fell into the teacup. She thought it would be cute if we did it again to show how much he has grown! Boy has he grown!

See for yourself..

Happy Thursday!!
Last night I was taking some pictures of Darrian and this hat. He looks really cute in hats, and isn't at the age to tear them off just yet. This is one that Daddy picked out for him right after he was born, he wanted him to wear it home but it covered his whole face :). We forgot about it for a while and then last night I decided to take some pictures of him in it. He was a pretty good sport.
You can click on them to make them bigger.. the last one is my favorite. It is hard to get him because he moves so much now.

Happy New Years!

Hope everyone had a great new years weekend. We didn't do much, just hung around the house mainly. Saturday my Mom and I went to see Walking with Dinosaurs, it was very good. I will try and post pictures soon. Sunday I wasn't feeling great, got some shopping done in the morning, and my Mom got me the kitchen aid mixer :). Spent the rest of time in bed... and playing with Darrian. Monday went shopping for new years eve, then we just cooked and I used my mixer. We stayed up for midnight then went to bed. Today we just hung out all day in our PJs. It was SO nice.. watched football and relaxed. A perfect ending to a great weekend!
