Anniversary Celebration, 2 week post!

Hello blog followers! Sorry for the delay, I think this might be the first time I really missed a week.....and what a week it has been. We are just super busy people - always going and going, the weeks literally fly by. Giada is growing like a weed. Lots of photos this week to catch up up.
Happy Viewing! And for Linds, Hager, and Lauren....Ill try to get back to my Sunday night updating so you have something to review on Monday. xo, Jules

Two weekends ago Gina and Scott were in town visiting. I cant believe it but we took ZERO photos with them. But we did get one of Giada on her first trike ride. Nonno found this for her. It's an oldie but goodie. She had fun with me pulling her all over the patio. I'm sure she will be using it on her own all too soon!

Matt has been working out of town for the last 6 weeks and really only comes home on Sundays, so we like to hang out with him when he is here. Swim date with Matt and Steph.

This week we had a play-date with Preston Kanter and Cooper Mettler. Although Allison held her the whole time :) we had a fun time visiting, and watching the boys play. With the paint and the water table they were pretty entertaining!

Pops turns 59! Celebrated with him on Friday night. Even got him to play some Wii...good times had by all!

Mike and I have our 3rd anniversary on the 16th, but had the chance to celebrate early this weekend in Monterey. It was such a great time, and we lucked out and had beautiful weather. Lots of laughs,good food, and drinks.
After lunch we decided to go on a bike ride. That ended up to be a 4+mile, 3 hour ride. Stops at the beach, and pier and lighthouse along the way. I was not in the correct attire with my black dress, and I'm pretty sure I flashed some people. Nor did we have sunscreen and got quite burnt. But we met some kids who needed to find a girl on the beach in a black dress for a scavenger hunt so I was able to help them out! Between the 2 of us we helped them check 3 things off their list!

And of course a trip to the Aquarium! Sea horse exhibit was there. I thought this was how all sea horses looked.
I didn't know there were so many kinds! This one looks like seaweed!
Love the jelly fish!
And Mikes favorites....the penguins!
And random pics from the week. Giada is sleeping less during the day and playing more. She pulls herself up on everything. We have to watch her like a hawk now. She is crawling everywhere, as much as I'd like to avoid it - baby gates will be at our house soon. She is eating more and so far seems to like everything we have tried - carrots, sweet potatoes, peas, green beans, squash, apples, pears, etc etc. We hope that continues and we HOPE the sleeping will get better at night soon. Mom is finally getting tired!

Go Giants!
Loves her music table!
Now she likes to crawl under the jumper and exersaucer to play and then looks at you and laughs.
Playing in the bathroom while we get ready in the AM. Nice work Giada even holding it the right way. Dr Hilder would be proud - brush those 2 teeth!

And last but not least, she pulls drawers out everywhere and all the stuff in them. This one sounds like a drum when she bangs on it - even better!

Oh my they grow so fast! Glad you had a nice trip away...we miss you guys and Cianna especially misses Giada. Can't wait for the next play date.

Love the pics! And sorry but I had to hold her for two reasons - the most important, she's so dang cute! and the second, it's rare that I get to hold Coop anymore so hold her for as long as she'll let you! :)
