Beach Moments

Amidst the craziness that we call our life, Brian was able to take a quick little break from our never-ending-house-projects and walk down to the beach with me and the Bean.  We didn't have long, and the wind decided to pick up right when we got there, but it was nice none-the-less.

Nella is into attacking anything she can get her hands on, so when we take pictures she automatically lunges for the in point....

The Bean. Trying to attack the iPhone.

A friend pointed out that she looks like she's paddling in this next photo....haha, I love it!  Never to early to start practicing :-)  Doesn't she look super stoked to be at the beach?  Atta girl!

Super stoked to be at the beach!

My Favorite Photo

I don't think words are needed to describe this picture...


Love, love, love :-)

Embrace the Camera: 4.26.12

I can't believe that our little Bean is almost 6 months old...crazy how time flies!  Anyway, these pictures were taken last week when we met my sister down at Rio Del Mar Beach for a nice morning walk with her two youngest kiddos.  We had a hard time getting Nella to look at the camera, but oh-well, I'll take them anyway :-)


Again, I can't tell you HOW THANKFUL I am for the gorgeous weather we have had this winter!  I am not the best at being cooped up inside, so we are trying to enjoy every minute of sunshine that we can :-)

First Hair Cut

Our sweet little P was long overdue for her first haircut, even though she is only 4 1/2 months when Brian was at Jeni's salon getting his haircut we thought, "why not now?" We put the drape on her and everything, and she was quite the trooper :-) Brian wanted to be involved in her first haircut, so he cut off the mullet portion (yes, she had a mullet) and then Jeni trimmed up her bangs a little bit along with some of the hair around her ears. The rest of the pictures are on Brian's phone, so i'll have post more once I get them.


Her hair is pretty out of control these days. Even though it is getting longer it has gotten so much thinner...and that mixed with the random bald spots is just too hilarious. Poor little girl...


Hair or not, we love our little P!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day

From our family to yours....

St. Patrick's day

Sick Baby Girl

This is how I spent most of the past two days...

Sick baby

Poor little girl came down with a bad cold and low fever and was by no means her normal self. As sad as it is to have a sick baby, I enjoyed the time that she fell asleep on me and just let us hold her because that hasn't happened since she was a few weeks old. So glad she seems to be on the mend today!

Embrace the Camera, 2-17-12

We are seriously having the best winter here in Santa Cruz. I guess we need rain, but I'm such a sunny day lover/outdoorsy person that I am just LOVING our "mid-60's" winter weather :-) This means that The Bean and I can get out for a walk almost every day and not feel cooped-up by being inside all the time.

I'm a day late to "Embrace the Camera," but better late then never :-) These photos were taken yesterday on our stroll. Excuse the poor quality...they were taken with my iPod, which does not have as good of a camera as the iPhone...why? I don't know, but I think Apple should change that. Apple, please change your iPod camera...



And the crazy little bean, herself...I was trying to get her to sleep, but she wouldn't have it....



Lately there has been sand art all over the beaches by our house, and yesterday we caught Mr. Sand Art Man in action. Not his best creations, but fun nonetheless.
