Early Summer

Its been crazy hot here! Today was in the upper 80s. Yesterday hit over 90! We've been spending a lot of time outside. I've got the word 'go' down. I'm also good at bringing my shoes and socks to mommy and daddy so we can go outside. My new favorite thing to do is water the garden. Grandma Ai got me a watering can and other gardening tools. I haven't really tried anything but the watering can... but man do I love that can...

When I'm not watering to make mud, I like to pick flowers and put them in my hair.

So pretty!

I've also discovered the fun of bubbles. I even blew a few bubbles MYSELF!!

Today was the first day my parents left me with a babysitter... though I don't see how it was any different than them leaving me with other people named "Grandma" or "Grandpa". Auntie Anna's sister Katie came over and we had lots of fun playing outside and reading books. I even went down for my nap without screaming! Babysitters aren't so scary. Mommy said that next time maybe I can go play at the zoo with Katie. We'll see if she keeps her promise...

When the 80s attack!

When did parents decide that they should subject their children to their fashion mistakes?

The best part is the shoulder! Or is it the lace on the bottom of the leggings? There's so many things to choose from!!

Grandma Lily came to visit right before Easter. We had hung out together all week and went to the zoo too. But mommy didn't download grandma's pictures... so this is a boring post. No worries though. We'll see Grandma again soon at Auntie Ea's wedding!

The weekend before Easter, Mommy's friend from college and her family came to visit from California... its been a busy Spring! I got to have my first repeat 'play date'. Sad huh? Kinda like having lots of first dates but no second ones. I guess it helps to have play dates with people in the same state, better yet, same zipcode. I met Alexandra last summer when Mommy and I went to Los Angeles.

We had a lot of fun playing together.... though Alex pushed me around a bit.

We went to the playground at the end of the street and I realized how much fun slides can be!! Its a good thing I've got my own now. :-)

Apparently, Alex's mom did a better job taking pictures cuz there's tons of cute ones on Alex's webpage. The link is on the right under 'More Babies' Alexandra Lindsay Shinn.

Hopefully, we'll have a THIRD play date some time!

Still coming...

Two more new babies have entered the world. Wow, April is going to be crazy with so many birthday parties!

Sasha and Robert just had their baby girl Olivia on Wednesday April 8th.

Tamiko and Kevin just had their baby boy Kyle on Tuesday April 14th.

Everyone is healthy and happy. Congrats!!
That brings to total for Mommy's friends in March-April to 3 boys (Jonathan, Wyatt and Kyle) and 3 girls (Elise, Ava and Olivia)! I hope I didn't forget anyone! Auntie Bridge... you're up next! (Sorry I hung up on you yesterday... I hope the traffic wasn't too bad!)

Today was Easter... I think Mommy and Daddy finally agreed that Easter was the day that some guy named Jesus came back from the dead. That seems strange to me. What it really meant was my first easter egg hunt. I found 4 eggs before I got distracted by the neighbor's doggies.

So I took a break. It worked out well. Mommy and Daddy were too cheap to get me anything but the plastic easter eggs... but the neighbors gave me an easter present. My very own slide!! I've almost mastered it... I just can't seem to get from the ladder to the right way down the slide. One time I went head first by accident.

After a while on the slide, I went back to finding eggs. I got all dozen eggs (much to Daddy's surprise)!

Wait... there's more

Welcome Ava Tahirih Sicolo... who arrived at 5:05pm April 10th. Congrats to Anita and Steven... and to their families (whom I know are way too excited about their first grandkid). Lots o' love.

And we're still waiting for a couple more this round... and then round two in July!

More Babies

Welcome to the world Elise Kido Soule. You're a cutie pie... even though you look like your daddy! :-) Is your nickname going to be Kiddo? Mine's Smidget (small-midget)... so Kiddo isn't so bad.

Relevant info: Sunday April 5th at 2:48 pm; weighing in at 6 lbs 9.2 oz (really... we went to fractional ounces!) and measuring 19.5 in.

Congrats to the Soules!
