Bee's having a party and you are invited!

Bee is almost one! Her birthday is October 13th but we are having her party on Saturday the 17th in the afteroon! It is a animal costume party. I hope you all can come and get dressed up too! Email me for directions and more information. In a perfect world I would be printing the invitaions and emailing them out but it is not going to happen. Please spread the word to those that won't see it on the internet.

Thank you! Bee is going to love seeing all of you!

side note: We have been gearing up for our California trip by trying to shift Bee's night time sleep to CA time but it might not happen. So, let me know if anyone is an early morning person because we will want to play! I will need to explore the Hanford/Lemore parks too if anyone can join us! It is really going to be 80 degress in October! I need to pack shorts and tank tops??? Do people swim in October in Hanford? Wow! I am really looking forward to our trip! Please pray for our safety and health as we travel because we always seem to get sick when we get to town. No fun.
Love and hugs to all!


Hallie and Jon came to visit us in Brooklyn last Saturday. Hallie is my second cousin (my mom's cousins daughter) and Jon is her husband. Jon works for Amtrack so it is a nice ride to New York on the train for them! Hallie is due with their first baby (the gender will be a surprise) on November 4th and she is a high school French teacher! We have a lot in common and it was fun to talk with her about her upcoming pregnancy because one year ago I was in her same situation! Hallie and Jon have never spent time in Brooklyn so we took them around to see some of our favorite places! It was fun!

Bee up top!
What are they pointing at?
Bee giving daddy a kiss!
Hallie and Jon bought some cloth diapers from a family in Park Slope (the best place to get second hand baby things).
We thought it was a wedding but it turns out it is just the fanciest birthday celebration! A sweet sixteen!
Yeaaa for family!
Hallie and Bee have bright blue eyes! They bonded right away!
This might need an explanation! We were walking down a brownstone lined street in Park Slope when we came across a sweet old lady having a stoop sale of the best kind...a free sale! She was giving away all the unwanted kid things she had in her house! We got a "daddle!" It is a daddle saddle for horseback rides! We went to Prospect Park to relax and we had to try it! Bee loved it! I wouldn't spend $55 on it but for free we can't resist!
Bee is now a Philly's fan! I am so thankful to have gotten to spend time with Hallie and Jon! It was my first time meeting Jon and Hallie and I haven't seen each other since we were little! We are going to go visit them in Philadelphia after the baby is born! I am excited for her! I can't believe it has been one year since Bee was born. In a way it went really quickly but it also seemed like the hardest and longest year ever! Do mommies ever really get caught up on sleep?

11 month old Bee!

Yesterday was Bee's 11 month birthday! Both her and Gaia took their first unassisted steps! Bee's step was literally a baby step! Pretty soon I won't be able to keep up with her!
It was also my mom's birthday! Happy Birthday Mom! I miss you but I will see you in Heaven!

Bee loves to point! This morning she learned to point to my nose and her nose!

Bee wants "YOU" to join the Army!

Bee and her daddy and friends!

Labor Day Weekend

Happy Belated Labor Day! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! I can't help but think of childbirth labor when I hear "Labor Day." But pretty much any kind of labor is not easy!
We went to a Labor Day BBQ at Amy's mom's house.

What are these babies thinking?
Amy's mom, Suzie is in the background! Thank you Suzie for the great BBQ!!!
Olgiered, Suzie, Amy (Gaia was sleeping), Margaret (friend who owns flower shop near the health food store), Gregor (he words at the store), Bayard (Amy's Aunt), Micky (Amy's Uncle), Joe, Bryna, Bee, Felix, Cory and the photographer Annie!

I like the looks Gaia is giving Felix in the following two pictures.

Gaia really wanted to take a good long look at Felix!Bee loves taking toys away from other kids.
On Labor Day, the annual "West Indian Day Parade" took place on Eastern Parkway. They were expecting 3 million people this year! I decided to not attend (I was warned not to bother going because once you get in the middle of all those people it is hard to get out) so I took a picture from afar!
This is Lily's son. He is giving Bee a hug!
Karen loves the Bee!
Bee and Lily say hi, while Karen cuts me a slice of the blueberry cheesecake she made!
Amy, Joe and Gaia went to church with us on Sunday.
Gaia and Bee stop to say hi to a friendly dog!

There is a playground specifally for kids Bee's age called the "Tot lot." Bee and Gaia have been going there alot! They can climb up and down the stairs and the slide!

Amy and Gaia!Annie and the tots!
Bee likes to hang out at Felix's house!
We put the wheelbarrow in the door way to try and block Bee from crawling to the kitchen it didn't stop her. When I wasn't looking she climbed in by herself!

Shop Til' You Drop

Bee and I stopped in at Lily and Fig's bakeshop for a treat! Karen, Bee, Lily, and the blackforest cake Karen had just finished! It was really yummy!Bee got to go shopping at the health food store!
Amy and Joe (Gaia's parents) owns a local health food store! Amy's mom bought her a really cool shopping cart! The girls are going to have lots of fun here! Thanks Gaia for sharing your store with Bee!
Gaia usually is the only baby shopping in the store but she enjoyed Bee's help!
The girls had so much fun taking things off the shelves! It was entertaining to watch them have so much fun! Bee did not want to leave!
We went into a kids shop and Bee and I fell in love with the stuffed animals. Jellycat is the brand of animals that we liked! I couldn't decide which one to get her so I didn't buy anything!
Amy, Michelle, Bryna, Me
Gaia, Sophia, Felix, Bee
We hung out at Michelle's house today. Amy and Bryna discovered that Michelle was a mutual friend of theirs last week, so we all got together to have the babies play!

The babies enjoyed eating snacks with the mommies!

A picture of Bee during dinner tonight! This picture will be proof that she actually enjoyed eating tofu incase it's hard for her to believe!
