Father's Day

Joe celebrated his first Father's Day by getting a cold. What a gift. (I didn't give him that one.) We also went out to a lovely brunch with my parents - yummy food, yummy company, and a yummy (if I do say so myself) raspberry cream pie I made for dessert. Unfortunately what I didn't do was bring my camera to record the special day. Oddly enough, this happened on Mother's Day, too...funny how I take a zillion pictures most days but on the actual significant holidays, I forget to snap pics.

On a similar note, I also managed to forget to bring diapers to brunch. DIAPERS! The one essential element to the diaper bag! So essential they named the diaper bag after it! Unbelievable. Normally it wouldn't be that big of a deal but of course the day I forget to bring diapers is the day Sody has a major blowout that leaks through her cute pink panties that match her cute little Father's Day sundress. Ick, I know. Luckily my mom saved the day by rushing to the store in the middle of the meal and all was well again.

Lastly, Baby Sody Headquarters is headed out on a summer break to go visit Joe's family in New Jersey. Baby's first plane trip! Wish us (and the other passengers) luck. We won't be updating this while we are gone but I promise lots of pictures from the East Coast when we get back. Here are some recent pics of Miss Cutie-Patoots to tide you over while we are gone. Happy summer, y'all!

I Might Eat This Kid

OMG COULD SHE BE ANY FATTER AND CUTER?! The beer belly, the sausage arms, the big doughy cheeks...everything about her screams "food" and I wanna take a bite. I LOVE IT! My retinas are going to explode from the cuteness one of these days.

Social Butterflies

Ok, so, our social calendar isn't exactly raging these days. Not complaining, just stating fact. Playing with sock monkeys and plastic rattles takes precedence at the moment, and I love it. But life is admittedly a little slower these days. So it was a very big deal to have not one but TWO sets of friends from Oakland visit us two days in a row this weekend. Both were spur of the moment trips...don't you love when you have nothing planned for the weekend but it suddenly turns into Something? Both couples have sons too, so we are already stockpiling boyfriends for Isota when she grows up (if she likes boys, of course). Thanks to Dan and Alice and Lenny and Jeff and Thea and Remy for all making the trip over here! It was a treat to see you all.

Eatin' Good in the Neighborhood

We started rice cereal this week! Really runny of course, but she is a pro so far. Most of it goes in her mouth so she is obviously a genius.

What's Up, Doc?

Cold peeled carrot as teething device. I think she dug it.

Two Birthdays

Last Tuesday marked both Joe's 34th birthday as well as Sody's 5 month birthday. Since her idea of a good time pretty much revolves around breastfeeding and perfecting the art of sitting up, we let Joe pick the activity for the special day. And he chose to do what any normal, red-blooded, 34-year-old man would want to do: head straight to Chuck E. Cheese. So we got the babe and my parents and did just that. The place was near empty, the pizza was greasy, the tokens were a-plenty. We hit a lot of the games and took far too many pictures, as per usual. Sody Lou got her first taste of skee-ball when I packed her in the sling when I played. In a word, it was Awesome. Joe and I wanted to stay longer and play but Isota needed a nap. Wouldn't you know, the kid had to leave Chuck E. Cheese and the parents cried for more...

Oh, My Darlin'...

How awesome is my husband? I did not expect that last post and it made me swoon. And cry. I looked like this (minus the abject terror Sody is displaying here):
