It's a what?

And I'm supposed to do what with it?

Well OK but I'm not too sure about this Poppa.

Birthday Party

Lots of babies, lots of great gifts, lots of fun. So much fun, in fact, that we are still recovering. More pics and details to come.

I Lied

Lonan's checkup isn't til next Wednesday. Oh, and I put the wrong date on the invitations to his birthday party. Worst. Poppa. Ever.

But I did order the cake correctly. And Ashley and Abuelita are coming. Should be a great weekend.

Here's my pack passed on out the sofa. And here's Doug warning me not to take pictures of him when he's asleep - or else.

The 411

Our 1 year checkup is this Friday (shots - ack!) so we'll find out just how big the boy is now. But he's already entered a new phase.. not quite a toddler yet but less baby. With 6 teeth, he's done with baby food. Now it's lots of fruit (esp. bananas, strawberries and blueberries) veggies (loves broccoli and corn) and chicken. LOVES pancakes and sausage, eggs - not so much. We let him taste anything we're eating (as long as its not too processed or spicy) and there's very little he won't chow down. He sleeps well - he goes down at 8 and rarely puts up much of a fuss. He sleeps until 7-8 in the morning - but still wakes up anywhere between 4-6 for a bottle, although we're weaning off that. In fact this morning he wouldn't take it -- he just needed soothed back to sleep. And the bottles themselves will soon be gone. He's been drinking milk since 9 mos, and we could have weaned him off formula then, but Dr. Anne wanted him to get the extra calories, since he was small for his age. He should be walking soon - he can stand on his own now for a few seconds, but finds crawling much more efficient. New stats this Friday - but I would guess 27 inches - and about 23 pounds. He's almost caught up to baby Leo.

Another SoCal Weekend

We flew down Friday morning..
and Lonan stayed with my mom. She brought in my niece Chelsea for reinforcement while Daddy and Poppa spent the weekend in San Diego. Sunday we drove back up to LA. Our friends Mark and Edie hosted a bbq. We go back a looong way.. Mark was the one who brought Doug out to LA to work at Cedars in 1994!

Mary Claire and George and Emma were there..

along with Lonan's Godmother Cynthia and her her husband BJ..

and their kids Julien and Danielle - who were good company in the kennel.
