Sweet sixteen for Connie! A fun and delicious dinner at Dish in La Canada hosted by Liz, the proud mama. Unfortunately I was doing a lot of Jordan juggling that day so most of the pictures I took turned out blurry. I did manage to get this gem of Aunt Jane and Uncle Tom. They have always been a rather photogenic couple. I had a great time seeing family and Connie in her adolescent habitat, so rarely viewed by adults and uncool new mom/sisters like myself.
Good memories from months 4 and 5: waking up happy to see Daddy in the morning and get a scratchy hello. Rolling over and working on her push-ups (girl push-ups for now, but still). Watching the sunset and the hummingbirds rush in for their evening sugar rush, out in the front yard. With the nights coming earlier we are trying to enjoy the last bits of warm weather. And having a little more hair to wash during bathtime.
Heather Griswold's birthday. Jim took over the planning and baked a 4 layer white cake with fresh raspberry filling and whipped cream frosting. He also decorated the kitchen with two dozen balloons (no Lakers colors this time) and purchased some fabu party hats. Our gracious friends continue to humor us with low key dinners at our house so Lady J can get to sleep easily. Thanks, peeps
Jordan's first B-day experience
Thursday, August 7, 2008
I hesitate to write this for fear of the almighty Jinx--but life with our Jordan is becoming more about smiles and less about screaming. For these last couple of weeks we are so grateful! Jordan almost always wakes up with big smiles that last all day. Favorite activities include blowing bubbles and batting at any toy that rattles. And talking to Mom and Dad. And eating. The girl can put it down. She has developed some gorgeous thigh rolls and I've had to pack away some of her newborn clothes (insert overly emotional mom-sigh here). She is such a joy to be with that I now understand why our parents were so darn strict with us when we were kids. Ahhh, parenting....life will never be the same.
