34 Weeks


Favorite activity: Dinnertime!
Favorite food: bananas! We've finally gotten the hang of them! We also are fond of mama's spring green risotto and cheesy broccoli casserole. And strawberries!
Favorite spot: Playing on the blanket, for sure!
Naughtiest moment: Rubbing snot all over mama. Ewww.
Cutest moment: Laughing at Jaime's mustache!
Important milestones: First cold :(
How Mom's Feeling: Pretty good. Lorelei got her first cold this week, which was a bummer--both for her and us. We had stuff PLANNED for this weekend! She did pretty well, all things considered. She had a minor fever, a little fussy, didn't want to take her morning nap, and was fairly snotty. But her mood was fantastic! We had to forgo a playdate with some friends and a trip to Sacramento. But we did go to dinner in San Francisco and went to Happy Hollow for the first time! 

Happy Hollow was blast. I haven't been since I was about 8 or 9 years old. The high points of the trip: petting the goats in the petting zoo, playing in the playground with our friends and seeing the meerkats in the zoo!

And a little nighttime reflection I wrote last night:

Growing up, before I got married, got pregnant, I always assumed I'd be a working mom. I wanted to be a working mom. I didn't want my life to be defined by another person. I didn't get it. I didn't understand. Those other things don't matter. I mean, they MATTER, but they don't define you. My job doesn't define me, and I'm happy about that. Looking at my daughter tonight, sleeping in her crib, I realized this is what matters: My perfect girl, my amazing husband, my two goofy dogs, my perfectly imperfect family.

THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE.

And now for some photos!

Hanging out at home!

Oh, did you say I SHOULD put this shoe in my mouth? Okay!
