Stella Jean!!, Preschool, & Fancy Food Show

How could I forget to announce that I'm going to be an aunt!!! My brother and Steph are due mid June and have just found out they are having a little girl! We are all so excited and can't wait for Stella Jean. I'm sure you will see quite a lot of her on this blog, and Steph's growing belly once she starts showing!! So exciting!! They are working on the room now - more to come!!

This weekend we had the Fancy Food Show in SF. It is such a fun show to just see if you ever get a chance. Thousands of vendors with new products, from all over the world. This was our first year with our own booth. It was a long three days, but worth it. The new flavors should be available soon but were well received at the show. Buddha's Hand Citron, Garlic & Garlic Jalapeno. Not the best pics, but it gives you an idea of our booth.

Have you ever seen this before? Buddha's Hand Citron

While we were away Nana & Pops took care of Giada and Sydney. Thanks again! She loves spending time with them, and doesn't even seem like she misses us, although we missed her!
They sent us funny pictures throughout the weekend...

Gino came with us to the show, and we all took turns watching him. It can be challenging with an infant at a trade show, but lucky for us he is really a good baby, very easy going.

This week Giada hit a big milestone - Pre-school! We found a class that will take her in a 3 yr old class and take her semi-potty trained. SCORE! Most want to put her in a 2 year old class, since they judge the child's age in December and she turns 3 in January. It's only Th/Fri from 12:30-3 but so far she seems to love it. She got to bring show and tell this past week, and PJ day this week. Fun stuff.
Her buddy Seve started school too! Fun for them to have a familiar face in class. Although Giada doesn't seem to care that I leave her there. She runs right off, barely saying Goodbye! Another funny thing their is another "Giadda" in her class. She spells it with 2 "d's" but still pretty funny- who would have thought!
I have a lot of Giadaisms to post but I will save them for next week when I have more time...Gino turns 6 months tomorrow - so kiddo update next week!
