Gina's Wedding Shower, Frietas Visit, 18 month check up

Yet another busy week/weekend!
No pics, but I went to the Mud Mill to have a last minute date with Bre before she starts school, I'm sad all my teacher friends are back to school, but glad my mom doesn't have to go!

I also donated blood this week. I have gone about 4 times and always got rejected, low iron, been out of the country etc. It wasn't bad and I look forward to doing it again!

Mid-week the Freitas clan came to visit us on the way to Shasta! What a fun night it was, lots of kids running around. Giada loved playing with Jacob and Taylor, and touching baby Chloe's head and eyes all night. It may make me reconsider the thought of having 4 kids :) - Not that Mike was on board with that idea anyway.

Mike's sister Gina is getting married in October - so the wedding festivities began this weekend with her bridal shower. She received so many nice gifts and we had a great time visiting with family and friends.

Homemade biscotti!
Gift from the hostesses - Gina's table setting!

Some of the hostesses! Kerry where are you?

In- laws
Hilder- are you related to this lady? You two look nothing alike!!
No family resemblance here!

Gift time- the best one of all- thanks Aunt Patsy!

Caught in the act, attacking presents!

And attacking the camera too!

The flower girl

And after the shower we went to Rosewood and Ollies.....and it all went downhill from there. Although a super fun night out. I had the worst hangover of my life on Sunday. Yikes- glad we are onto Monday! Im blaming this on being 30! I've never had this problem before! :)

The boys met up with us for a cocktail

And before we blinked an eye, Giada is 18months old!

-Shots, this time I felt so bad, she knew they were coming and started crying right before they put them in. Luckily she gets over it quickly!
-Sleeping so well! Im happy we are over that hump!
-Still has a big head - 93 percentile
-And tall too, 33 3/4 inches - 96 percentile
-26.6 lbs - 79 percentile
-Lately LOVES saying dada, and continues saying it until Mike responds to her its so cute.
-Loves her baths, and playing in water in general. Rolls over to her stomach in the bath and starts kicking around, we have to drag her out of there.
- Good eater, loves fruit and popsicles! (Thanks a lot pops!)
-Loves dancing to any music, its more like jumping but so funny. Grabs all her stuffed animals to dance with her too. Monkeys are still the favorites.
