10-10-10=Pat turned 80!

On Sunday, October 10th Pat Klingensmith turned 80 years young! We knew we wanted to make the day special for her and decided a family surprise party would please the woman who has everything.  Everyone contributed something to pull it off and it was an absolute success! Happy 80th to Grandma and thanks to everyone who helped to make it happen! Enjoy the pictures
Everyone! (except JP, Solange and Avery)

The birthday girl and her kids

Italian-themed dinner provided by everyone

Happy birthday to you!

Just in case anyone was wondering...

Avery got some Crocs from J, J and O!!

She was surprised!
Thanks to Grandpa for helping us fool her!

Avery is 3 months old!!

I know I am a little late on the 3 month photo shoot, but just go with it :)
Our little girl continues to grow and change before our eyes, and literally every day brings new and fun things she can do.

  • We don't know exactly how much she weighs now, but we know she is getting up there because our arms ache after just a few minutes! 
  • She is "talking" a ton and smiling at everything and everyone (my favorite thing to do is poke my face over her crib when she wakes up in the morning and watch the biggest grin spread across her face!) 
  • She can reach for toys and almost always successfully place them into her mouth 
  • She is wearing size 2 diapers and fits into all of her 3-6 month clothes 
  • She has moved on from the Soothie newborn pacifier to a regular Nuk one
  • She is getting strong enough to sit up in her Bumbo seat and enjoy her jumperoo
  • Her hair is getting lighter but is still pretty fluffy
  • She is still exclusively breast-feeding and eats about 5 oz 5-7 times a day
  • She is sleeping 7-9 hour stretches consistently (woohoo!)
We recently took Avery and Roo to a big park near our house for our little photo shoot. One thing remains the same about our little girl as the months progress: She is beyond adorable and so fun to photograph! Enjoy :)

Kid Catalina Trip

We had another great weekend in Catalina with my dad, the Annaloro family, the Cann family and part of the Gracey family. Enjoy the pictures!

Dinah and the almost-birthday-boy, Phoenix
We had to pay a visit to Luau Larry's, but something was a little different this time around (note the strollers with sleeping babies in it "parked" right outside!)
Dinah is a bad (good) influence
