Life in Pictures

The last 6 weeks have been madness. Several after hours/weekend work events, training for a second job, a respiratory issue that resulted in a bruised rib due to 3 weeks of intense coughing = tons of late nights and too little time with my boy. I'm sure other people live in a perpetual state of madness and exhaustion and still manage to hold it together, but I'm a girl who needs her down time and can only go so long burning the candle at both ends. Thankfully, I've reached the end...at least for a couple of weeks. Since I don't have the mental energy to go into too much detail, here is a recap of the last month in cell phone pictures.

A shopping trip to Target where we were loving the orange sunglasses.


 I was so relieved when our vines started sprouting green buds. So proud of all of JP's hard work. It has truly been a labor of love.


Visiting the ducks one evening after work.



Weekend days when we are home are mostly spent lounging around the family room or running around outside.


Relaxing with a "show" on a rainy spring day.


He asked to wear the "Mickey hat." I think someone wants to go to Disneyland as much as I do.

Donuts on a Saturday morning before I went in to work.

Celebrating JP's birthday in San Francisco

It was cold and he actually agreed to leave the bear hat on all day, thus its appearance in every picture.

Getting ready to hit the ball at AT&T Park. Really men use pink bats.

Running the bases with daddy

Coming down the slide!

Rocking out with the frog boots

A little chocolate milk and a show with friends.

Playing on our new play structure, generously given to us by a friend who wanted it out of his backyard.

It's pretty slick. A slide, a telescope, a steering wheel. All for free!

Our chickens finally started laying eggs, so we have farm fresh eggs in the fridge! Hooray!

Wednesday morning story time at the library with Grammy and Grandad.


Here's the belly 5 weeks ago around 17 weeks. I took this to send to my sister-in-law in Colorado and haven't taken another one since. It's true what they say, it really does go faster the second time around!
