Out of my dreams

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

On Tuesday morning, Sophie woke up a little early. We just brought her into our bed and she slept for another 4 hours. One little baby in a big queen size bed. Still not enough room!

Many a new day

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Today is the first day where I spent most of the day at work. Nana and Papi are here to take care of Sophie and Evan during the day, so l got to concentrate on stuff that really needed to get done. Really, it was mostly phone calls to my colleagues in Boulder, CO. ¬†When […]

Sunday in the Park….

Monday, September 29th, 2008

Evan got his scooter put together finally! We had been waiting because he wasn’t really good at lifting one foot over the seat of the toys at the playground. But as you can see below – he now has the hang of it and is loving figuring out how to make it move! In the […]

I think you’re gonna like it here….

Papi and Nana arrive in San Francisco today! We haven’t seen them since July, and though only two months ago – both Evan and Sophie have changed a lot. Some pictures of Evan and Sophie interacting early in the morning. Sophie was a having a little tummy time and Evan started kissing her! The day […]

Obama vs McCain

Friday, September 26th, 2008

Today was the first presidential debate. Fox News is sure that Mccain won. Then there is the rest of the media….. I, of course, still somehow think that Hillary won. Another pretty normal day in the house. Evan has been using a fork for a few weeks now, but getting better every day. Today I […]

In what has become the most exciting thing for us this week, the news today is that Sophie slept “through” the night again! (from 11 to 6) This is the first time that she has done that two times in the same week. Dads are VERY excited that might actually make a trend. I guess […]

Back to work today! LolaBeth came over to help with the kids. Sophie did NOT sleep through the night last night. Our normal routine at night. Feed Evan – i would post a picture here, but haven’t figured out how to hold the camera, feed Evan and take a picture without creating an even bigger […]

End of weekend

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Monday morning it was back to reality. Time to pack up the car and head back to San Francisco. Fortunately, we always try to get back to SF in time for some more fun and games before the weekend ends! Which gives us and the kids a little time to unwind before we start another […]

Sunday in Fair Play

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

Sundays in Fair Play usually mean: One of us going out to get mochas, trying to feed Evan and Sophie, taking showers, cleaning the house, packing up leftover food, diaper bags, and anything that needs to go back to SF, and then loading the car and getting on the road around 11 AM. Today though […]

Long weekend

Saturday, September 20th, 2008

We took Friday and Monday off, so we’re up in Fair Play today, and have a few items on the to-do list. First is to put together K2’s new crib. She’s been sleeping in a bassinet, which she almost fills, so it’s time for her to move up. K1’s crib is from IKEA, as is […]
