The one where baby O gives me a heart attack

Posted on: Monday, July 16, 2012

Miss baby O has become very mobile in the last month. She is not walking on her own just yet, but she is a pro crawler & climber. Her abilities seem to go from high-achieving amateur to Olympic athlete whenever there is a cell phone/laptop/kindle in sight. Last week I left her playing in her room with her wooden blocks, since our apartment has an open layout I went to the living room from where I could still see her. However, as soon as I turned my back for a second she was gone! When I turned around and couldn't see her I went to her room and assumed I would find her trying to get into the closet (Who needs toys when you can play with mom's shoes??) but to my horror she was no longer in her room. So I literally raced over to my room, with my heart somewhere around my ankles and there she was. Sitting proudly on top of our bed and typing away on her daddy's laptop with the biggest smile I have ever seen. Welcome to toddlerhood mom!

Missing Mexico

Posted on: Thursday, July 12, 2012

I left my heart in Zacatecas.... this always happens when I go and visit my family. I used to go once a year while in high school and in college I would spend almost 2 months just eating, drinking, exploring and spending time with my crazy family. This year was the first time I had been back since being married (5 years!) and it was surreal to return with a baby of my own. I will post some pictures (courtesy of my brother) of that vacation soon. In the meantime, I have been gravitating towards all things Mexican to help me ease the heartache a little bit. So baby O and I dressed in our hand embroidered pieces and enjoyed a walk downtown. Side note: these pictures were taken after 8pm...the sun was still out and I am pretty sure it was over 90 degrees! Anyone who doesn't believe in climate change has not been to California on a summer day.

Afternoon in the park

We recently moved to a new apartment and we are in love! We have always had our eye on this apartment complex because of its location and charm. It is one of the original apartment buildings in town. It is also conveniently located in the heart of downtown and across the street from a great park and the weekly farmers market. We love taking baby O to the play structure and teaching her how to go down the slide. We always bring a lot of toys and books to read, but as you can see our cell phones win the prize for entertainment every time!
