“Walking off my tired feet” (Follies)

Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

Sophie can now officially walk. She has been standing, cruising, and taking a few steps here and there for almost a month now, but yesterday she officially changed from crawling to walking as her favorite way of getting from one place to another! She is very pleased with herself, and loves to show off. We […]

“Summer Lovin’, had me a blast” (Grease)

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

We took Friday off and spent a long weekend in Fair Play. Great timing for the first long weekend of the summer season. The weather was gorgeous, even a little hot! Pizza at Fitzpatrick Winery also started the week before, so getting up there in time for Friday night Pizza is an extra bonus this […]

“I’m just a little girl….” (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes)

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Sophie had her 12 month check up yesterday. She continues to do really well. The doctor said that we can go off formula and on to milk now. That is exciting for us for a few reasons. First – Sophie never really loved her formula or her bottle. Second – I can’t wait to get […]

“Happiness is Five Different Crayons” (You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown)

Monday, May 11th, 2009

This past weekend we turned the back of our breakfast bar into a chalk board for Evan and Sophie to write on. We thought it might be a bit early for them, but it turns out to be a big hit. Evan loves it, and Sophie can’t decide if she wants to draw or eat […]

“Mended the fences and painted ‘em too” (The Color Purple)

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Painting the house was finally finished last week. I think it was almost 4 weeks in total. We are very happy with the end result, and they made a lot of small repairs to the wood at the same time – so it was definitely worth the time and money.  Five colors in total: “Night […]

Never alone for you walk with me (The Full Monty)

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

First off, it’s an actual post by JP. David writes most of the posts, and I take a lot of the pictures. But I just had to get these two photos up as soon as possible. Our friends Mike and Michael, and their sons Christopher and Matteo came over for a play date this afternoon, […]

“My Birthday goes by so fast” (Gypsy)

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

Saturday was Sophie’s birthday celebration with a small group of family and freinds. We sort of did a spring/Lilly/cupcake theme – everything yellow and white. Unfortunately it was raining so the duck pond game we had rented from the party store didn’t make it out to the yard. I have read in a few places […]

“Happy Birthday Darling” (Bright Lights, Big City)

Friday, May 1st, 2009

April 30 2009 was Sophie’s 1st birthday (and Daddy’s 42nd). Though we are having a party with family and friends on Saturday, we celebrated a little with Nana and Papi on the real day. Sophie’s favorite thing of the evening was the balloon. She also got a doll, and great little pink princess “car”, and […]
