The video I captured on this camera does not have sound for some reason, which is really sad because his laugh it real cute. I am going to shoot with another one that should work. If you can't see this then go to . Enjoy!

Week in Re-cap.

We have had a really good week. Last Wednesday I met up with Sofia and Nicole for dinner. We went to A Cote in Oakland. It was SO yummy and I would recommend it, they have an outdoor heated patio that is an Oasis of sorts. It is was so fun to get together chat and talk.. and catch up.

Friday night K and I went on a date night while Grandma babysat. We had a really good time, went to dinner. Joked. Talked. No baby demanding the conversation. Not until we are out do I realize I miss it. I think we both agreed we will have to do it again sometimes soon.

Saturday.. Went to the pumpkin patch with D and Grandma. He picked out 7 small pumpkins and Grandma bought them ALL. He went on a train ride with Grandma too and loved it, but didn't love getting OFF the train. After that we went home and relaxed, D napped. Then Kelly came over and we went to take D's first year pictures. After that Kelly and I headed down to our clubhouse to meet a bunch of other Mom's for Game Night II. Lots of laughs. Lots of fun. Great company.

Sunday football, grocery shopping, and relaxation, and then .. went to get a Pedicure with Devyn. Her treat. We went to a really nice Spa and had wonderful relaxint pedicures.. a perfect way to top off the weekend.

Here are some pictures..

Picking out his many pumpkins!

A good weekend..

We had a really good weekend. Busy, but really is there any other type of weekend? :) Saturday we did get to relax a little bit in the morning and had lunch together, and most fun of all took a morning nap together. Sleep is so special after a baby. After all that D and I went to the park to play. We had a lot of fun and ran around for a few hours before heading home. I then headed over to Lynette's house for a get-together. Her and her husband were nice enough to host us, in their new lovely home. I can't believe how much add-on work her husband has done on his own. I think it is as close as you can get to just building a new place. It was nice to chat, and laugh. I miss these ladies, and glad we can still get together. On the way home I checked in with K and found out D was already in bed, I hate when I miss bedtime. However I got to talk to Devyn and catch up, and we talked till midnight! It seems like forever since we have done that. It is funny but Devyn is still the person I can talk to the longest on the phone. About everything, and nothing. I swear we could solve the world.
Sunday we headed to Chris and Julie's to spend the day. You can call this apart of my "Mission Win Lily Over". I swear she isn't THAT into me yet. I try not to take it personal, but when she cuddles up to K and not me, how could I not. That is okay. I am packing my calendar full of lots of time to win her over. When I hold her D likes to come over and yell, which scares her.. I guess it is his way of keeping me to himself. D loves the puppies and was ALL about Chris. He rested his head on him while drinking his bottle and was giving him lots of kisses, and wanted him to hold him. Ju-Ju got some love too.
He did fall (twice) and his lip bleed both times. I HATE when he gets hurt. Honestly. Hate it. His lip is doing better although it looked like he was in a boxing match. It was a fun weekend.
On our way to the park:

He loves to move the sand from where it is to the sidewalk.

Lily becoming a fan of K..

My Little Lion..

My Little Lion..
I got D's halloween costume. SO FREAKING cute. It is so fun to think of all the years of picking out costumes we will have, and when he gets to an age to pick for himself ..
This year I picked for him. A lion. with a TAIL. He isn't SO sold on the hat part of it, but tolerated it because he loves me. We are going trick-o-treating with his Godsisters and I am excited, I have the day off so I can enjoy it.

Dancing, Spinning.. Busting a move on the dance (living room) floor.

Baby D loves to dance. It cracks me up. Especially when he gets REALLY into it and "breaks it down" , he will hear music before I even notice it and start dancing. K's Mom used to tell a story of how K would stand in front of the TV in his diaper and dance to soul train, and would get really mad if you changed the channel. Once time I guess the adults were in the other room, and heard a big tud. Came in to find the TV had fallen on the ground still on, and K dancing right next to it. On Saturday Grandma came over for a bit (to bring D his fall waredrobe :)) and D danced and spin for her.
