Every year we do these photos for Mike, I am sure by now it is no surprise to him. I scramble around at the last minute to do them, but somehow they get done. It is so fun to look at the old ones as I always just stack the new ones in front. This year, another baby, and more to coordinate in the pictures but so interesting to see how much they change in a year. When Mike got home we had forgotten to change clothes. He asked Giada why she was all dressed up, was she taking photos; he asks with a grin. She looks at me all wide eyed and stumbled over her words and came up with a story about how it was something for Gino's birthday. She ran over to me to see if I had heard how she had fooled dad. It was pretty cute, she was proud of herself. Not sure I am glad she can spin a story on a moments notice, but I will worry about that later. "A" for effort Giada!
Well that year flew by! Giada loved her first year at St. Anne's and her time with Mrs. Luchessi. Giada was so excited to do a reading during the graduation; she had been practicing for weeks. Overall it was such a wonderful year for all of us, meeting the families we would spend years with, and watching Giada learn so much. Her writing and reading jumped leaps and bounds this year. Can't wait to see what is in store for her next year.
All 3 kids at 3 months, I would say at this point they sure look alike. Those big gummy grins.
Its Farmers Market time. Boy does it become Thursday in no time at all. I do enjoy sharing our product with customers and seeing so many familiar faces at the market. We have had 2 interns helping us this summer and it has been great, both are very nice girls.
Lorenzo comes with us on the nights it is not too hot.
These are the last of the spiky hair photos. His hair is so long now it lays down!
Gino sleeps with his arms up too!
