So sleepy..

So sleepy right now...Another 530am wake-up call...I seriuosly do not know how to get him to sleep in more. His room is dark, warm, and we double diapered him tonight so his clothes werent wet. I need a baby sitter just for the first two hours of his day :).

Had gym class today. He actually went across the high balance beam, flipped on the bar, and hung upside down. He is liking it more each time and just smiles and laughs during the entire class. We got some good videos. The one on the high beam got erased :(.....

Headed to the Beer and Wine Festival in Yuba, which should be fun.  So happy the weather has been so nice!

Little man...

Let's go mom...If I don't cry, can I drive????
He tried the Kubaton first and realized it was too big...Key was second... Crying passing the car, crying at the car door, screaming, kicking, and arching his back as I put him in the car seat are all daily occurrences that I actually and sadly try to avoid as much as possible..Not sure when my son turned into the car hater...And, as I drive he screams "UP UP UP," while pulling against the straps.

My little man for the first time in his entire life fell asleep outside of my arms, outside of his crib, off the boob, and outside of the car seat...People, you are witnessing history in the making. He was still eating about 1 second before this.

The Lion King

Love. Love. Love. Love this movie (always have) and loved it even more in 3D....This will be P's first movie in like 2 years :). Can't wait to buy him the soundtrack, like tomorrow! So glad we caught it before it was out of theaters.

My baby daddy...

My baby looks just like his daddy..I think it is just coincidence that he looks like Ems too...Unless, D and Ems look alike???....

I'm beat...

430am was not pretty this morning...All for 2 damn tests that I didn't get to study for on Tuesday becuase boopa is sick...poor baby and like always, have to add in the "poor mama". At least Modern Families and Criminal Minds are on tonight...I think Modern Families is better for my state of mind. I can't promise that I will be coming home from the psych center next Monday...I may just stay and have a nervous breakdown...At least I will be in the right place.

Date night...

My parent's graciously surprised David and I with a night away in Sacramento and Norma babysat. We got to stay at the Hyatt Regency right across from the capitol building. It was so nice to have some time to ourselves right before he left. We had a great time! Drinks in the lobby, nice dinner, and 2nd Saturday, & a great breakfast..It was a good Saturday to be in Sac-town. And, to top it all off we got to sleep in :)!!!!!!

P's First Hair Cut

David has been on me to cut Preston's hair and I have been refusing for many months now. I want a surfer boy..I have said that, since living in Japan, because little boys keep their hair longer there and I love it. David actually likes the longer styles too, but apparently P's is a little too long. So..we had a big debate about when we should cut his hair and my mom argued that it would only be fair to do it when David was still here. So we got out the bribes (cookies, one for each hand), the hair scissors, and a water bottle. I got five good cuts in and called it a day. He pretty much hated everything about it except the cookies. All I heard was no, no, no, NOOOOOO, with his hand pushing me away. His bangs are not in his eyes and his curls still exist....YEAHHHH!!! It is ironic that David wasn't even around when I finally got the nerve to do it. Now, he looks like a little girl even more...Poor poor P!

Bye Bye Dada :(

Just dropped off my big boo at the airport...WWWAAAHHH!!! Tears were definately shed and it was not by P. He just carried on looking at all of the fancy luggage at the gift shop and worrying about his next trip to the car seat....It was a very sad day but I was able to see a dear friend, which cheered me up. I am not sure how the next 3 months will go. I do know that they will GO and it will not be forever...There is already light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully, in 20 years we will look back and think " thank god we did that". P, again, is my little ray of sunshine.

Last day with daddy

Right before we left :(

Moving day...

We are back in the Yuba Duba after a long day of packing and unpacking...I don't care that our apartment was furnished and all I had to move was bathroom and clothes..I HATE PACKING AND UNPACKING AND THE ORGANIZING, DESTROYING, and REORGANIZING that accompanies it each time we move which seems to be A LOT every year....I AM READY FOR A HOUSE of my own!!!!!Now I just have to find room at my parents' house for all our stuff...It will be a small feat to get everything put away.  It always makes me wonder how we accumulate so much SH** in such a small amount of time!

Dear Child...

If you could sleep until the 7 o'clock hour, I would be forever grateful...I will even take 6:45am....This 5:10 am shit needs to stop...NOW! Kindest regards, your loving mother :)

Happy Birthday Blanche!

Happy 93rd Birthday!

 From Nate's perspective...I want what you have...

 Not bad :)


David and I babysat the cousins the other day. I wasn't sure what we were in for, but I was excited to do my best with 3 kids four years old and under. It turned out to be a great day! Meals were on time, laughter was heard from all, lots of energy was expended, and they even got baths at the end of the night, AND our house was clean when we went to sleep! It was fun.

Three car seats right in a row

Breakfast for 3..Tay tay insisted on sitting in P's chair.

Looking for flies

P being a wierdo

 Go Nate!!!

 Tay being a beast

 Tay tay insisted in sitting right next to P...He, of course, stole food off her plate instead of eating his own food.

 Nate gets his kiss in :)

At the water park...Snack break...David is telling P to stop standing up and P thinks it is hilarious! 

Kissing Cousins 

Praustin at Fairytale Town

We met Mr. Austy (as my mom calls him), Jason, and Sarah at Fairytale Town. It was a great morning...Totally wiped P out. He had a blast running around, chasing the chickens and being scared of them, playing with Austy, and of course, eating. We were the first patrons of the day and were nearly goosed by a goose..It would not stop following us. P was getting scared and of course, weenie me, I was horrified...I found a  man who worked there and told him that the goose wouldn't leave us alone and he scared it off...Thank god! :)

Summer is coming to an end...

Which makes my heart break a little more each day :(....The end of summer always means leaving someone...This year David will be leaving us....I am dreading the day.

Snails and puppy dog tails...

Things that boys are made of right?  I have always said  I think of myself more as a boys mother than a girls...I would be happy having 5 boys and no girls...The pink purple girly stuff in not what I die over...I love polos and rugby stripes...I love boy stuff, I really really do...However, recently P has found that he loves snails...I hate snails...I hate snails like I hate birds...Thinking about them right now makes my stomach turn...He picked one up yesterday and shoved his finger in the poor snail's shell...Out comes pieces of snail and snail juice...Then he wants me to pick him up...As any good mother would do, I carried him in loving arms home, not even dry heaving once.. He found one a couple of days ago and played with it forever...He snuck it into the house somehow, dropped it on the bathroom floor, and I couldn't touch it..I hate them. David came home, he went to get it and it was GONE!!!! I thought they moved slow?..It had crawled up under our vanity in the bathroom...They just gross me out so bad! I am thinking maybe a girl is more my style, hmmmmmmm..Puppy dog tails are another story..I love everything about puppies!

Sidewalk Chalk...

I love sidewalk chalk...Preston loves to eat it and sit on my drawings...I am hoping someday that he will get as much joy out of sidewalk chalk as I do...I takes me back to  my childhood for some reason.

My baby!

He got stung by his first bee this month...tear tear!

First Camping Trip...

We went to Bodega Bay with Mike and Leah and kids...It was really fun, really dirty, really exhausting, and really, really cold....We brought a stove that didn't work and I thought I forgot a few things, so we paid an arm and a leg for them up there. We found them as soon as we had bought them...Preston had a rough go of things the first and last nights, but it was so awesome to watch him with Nate and Tay Tay...They loved on him like you have never seen....It is a grand love affair between the three of them...Nate is P's protector. There are a few things I would do differently for next time, but I guess that is to be expected when you are a camping virgin. Lastly, Preston was pretty much obsessed with the ocean.

First Meal

 He loved the ocean!!!

 With Daddy!

 Shell with the babies
