Home and Away

We got home very early Sunday morning, and that afternoon drove to SoCal . Clearly Daddy and Poppa have lost their minds. But Lonan slept for much of the drive.

It was nice to see my mom..

and Tom..

and my Dad and Bonnie on Christmas Eve.

Christmas morning we opened presents at Abuelita's House..

every one of us..

and spent Christmas afternoon with my brother Keith, Aunt Julie, and cousins Chelsea, Megan and Ryan. We drove back to SF that night.

The Rest of Florida

The rest of the week was more visiting.. Story time with Alex..

spending time with Matt and his family.. Lonan met his grandfather Chuck, Lori, and Angela..

and Matt caught the baby a fish from the dock behind Nana's house.

So Many Pictures, So Little Time

I got a little happy with the camera while we were away and have a lot of pics to sort through. I'll try to get a few up each day... starting with baby's first flight.

Young Master Anderson was a great little traveler. We had a 4 hour flight SFO to ATL... he ate, he slept and he played.. we'd break out a new toy every 30 min or so. Seemed to work as he hardly fussed at all. He slept the entire 1 hour flight ATL to MCO.

I get HOW many miles for this?

Coach seems pretty roomy to me.

To Grandmother's House We Go

Back from from Florida and off to LA. A great trip back east with lots of great pics to come. Lonan was a great little flyer and charmed all the flight attendents. Merry Christmas everyone.

Baby Love

Went to dinner last night with Keith, who lives downstairs, and his girlfriend Mitra. She wants to set Lonan up with her 4 month old niece. They gave him a book for Christmas.
Daddy comes home tonight after 3 nights in LA & Sacto... we missed him.
Tomorrow we leave for Florida at the crack of dawn. Lonan's first flight! Gone for a week.. will try to get some posts up while we're there but pics will probably have to wait til we get back.

Good Thursday Morning

Lonan in his bouncythingy.
Had his 6 month checkup with Dr. Anne last week and he's doing great.
16 lbs
24 inches long
2 bottom teeth coming in!
He was supposed to get another round of vaccines but had a little cold so Dr. postponed til tomorrow. Then we learn about this vaccine recall! I called the pediatrician and it turns out he's already had one round of this at 6 weeks. Yoiks! But if there had been a problem it would have happened then so we're clear. But still...

He sits up on his own now (for about 10 seconds before capsizing, but it's a start). He screeches squeals loud enough to shatter my glasses when he's happy. Eating 2 solid meals a day (likes everything but peas) and still chugging 5-6 bottles.
Sorry the posts have become so sporadic. I used to send pics directly from my phone to the blog but then someone (Daddy) put my phone through the washing machine and I'm having a hard time getting the new phone set up to photoblog. So for now I have to use the digicam.. upload to the PC then upload to the blog.

Random Picture Dump

Lonan's godmother Saffa sent a few pics she took while she and Tim were here over Thanksgiving. Such a dapper little man.

OMG how cute is he?

Lucy always bundles him up went they head out.

The eyes have it.

Poppa multitasking: baby, Scrabble, cocktail.

We decorated the house for Christmas over the weekend.

Tree skirts are hot this season.

It was a lot of work.. Lonan passed out afterward.

Lonan's First Thanksgiving

It was quite a week -- fun and bittersweet.

Doug's father died the Saturday before Thanksgiving after many years of poor health. Doug flew to Pittsburgh Sunday and came home Thanksgiving day. It was doubly nice to have Tim & Saffa here while he was gone for company and help with the baby!

Wednesday night Other Dennis had us over for dinner and we got the meet his family, in town for the holiday from Chicago. They made a delish Greek meal and gave Lonan beautiful jacket.

Daddy arrived home Thanksgiving around noon and we went to Michael and Brad's house for dinner.

Michael's mother Sandy was quit smitten with Lonan, who enjoyed a nice box of foil.

Kristen and Morton and their family were there. Lonan and Axel are already buds.

Friday night the Saffa's parents hosted a dinner in honor of her 40th birthday and her sister Lisa's 50th birthday. Chad came over to watch Lonan - only the second time we've ever left him with a sitter. Needless to say everyone survived.

Saturday - shopping in Union Square.

We met up with Chad and Brad.

Saturday night our friend David got to met Lonan for the first time.

Sunday was Tim & Saffa's baby shower at her cousin's house in Petaluma. Poppa failed to get a decent picture, but here are Tim, Daddy and Lonan enjoying a nice fall day in the backyard.

Sunday night we were up to our ears in laundry.
