Another day in paradise...

Life has been crazy since the baby was was crazy before she was why does our current craziness surprise me? I don't know.

The annual Hector Bonfire was this past weekend, so our suitcases were packed up again, and once more we found ourselves singing, "On the road again...". Daniel, Christa and Joshua came up from the L.A. area to party with us. After a relaxing weekend up in the mountains, we made our way back home and settled in for another week.

It's Monday again, which means my baby is 3 weeks old now. She is currently sleeping on my lap and I've been learning how to type with one hand. I have the computer propped up so that I can use both hands, though, because I'm hoping to get this finished before she wakes up. So, I guess we should get on to the pictures....

Ben's shoulder still hurts and moving his arm only makes it worse. He hasn't been able to push the lawn mower, much to his dismay, so he went out with some scissors to get rid of the tall weeds growing in our yard.

And here is the BIG fire. For more pictures of the party, click here.

Look at that cute face!

Aunt Christa holding her niece for the first time.

Baby is all bundled up in the adorable outfit that Aunt Lindsey made for her and is ready to head out to see the bonfire.

Ben making his S'mores. I just ate the chocolate.

Boys and a baby...

...girls and a baby.

Christa took this picture, and it was too cute not to post!

All cozy in her favorite blanket.

Aunt Christa soaking up some cuddles.

Joshua and his cousin, "Elfafa."

Chilling on a Sunday afternoon.

A caption for Aunt Jessica.

Grandma bought this adorable dress for Shapirti, and she was so cute in it (I'm still trying to figure out when she isn't cute) that I couldn't resist taking a bunch of pictures of her.

She's getting so big!

Each day she becomes more and more interactive, more expressive and, of course, cuter.

Ben had to leave for a business trip, and she wasn't thrilled about that. You should've seen MY frown...

And one more before I sign off. Baby is squirming and wants some "Mommy time" so I'll bring this post to a close.

More pictures next time!

She is so cute! And expressive! A sign of genius, I'm sure! :) One of my girls was so expressive that our midwife at a check up said "I wouldn't get anything done, if I were her mommy. I would be so busy watching her!"

Thanks for sharing all the photos!


Jill said...

Adorable!!! Wish we could be there for the baptism, really missing you. Can't wait to meet the baby :D

Lindsey said...

It looks like Aunt Lindsey made her a Jedi cloak ;)

She is so crazy adorable! Thomas and I just spent the last 5 minutes looking (and laughing) at all of the photos. We can't wait to see her again!

She is sooooo cute!!! The bonfire was a blast and having baby Gus there was an added BONUS. I cannot believe how vigilant and aware she is.

I love the third picture. She is especially adorable in it.:) Love you all! Thanks for the post!

If I may, a little piece of advice, if you are breastfeeding, NO MORE CHOCOLATE! Unless you want to have a wired up baby!

She is adorable, Tiffany! I LOVE that picture Christa took... tooooo cute!!! I am having a hard time not knowing her name... :-) Amazing how much older she looks in just 3 weeks, isn't it?!

*laughing* I'm sure it's a sign of genius! My midwife said something very similar when she was here last week! The baby is smiling more everyday, too. It will be fun when she smiles at me...


I wish y'all could come out! I was SO bummed that we had to miss the wedding... July will be here soon, and you and James will be among the first people to hold her! Love you!


Ben and I LOVE the "Jedi cloak!"

Isn't she, though? I love watching all of her facial expressions... See you tonight!


That is one of Ben's favorite pictures of her...she's soooo cute! If you thought she was aware on Saturday, wait until you see her tonight!


Chocolate doesn't seem to bother her, curry and beans on the other hand... :)


Thanks! She does look older... *sob* My baby is growing up soooo fast! She gets a name on the 15th! It's coming up preety soon! ;)


I know.


I can't wait! We're going to have so much fun! Love you!
