Courtney is walking

Our latest development is that baby Courtney is now starting to walk. At 10 1/2 months, she's determined to walk and despite falling on her face time and again, she just gets back up and tries again. She is so mellow and happy and only cries when tired or hungry. She loves her big sister, Bridget, who cracks her up in the car nearly everyday. What a pair those two are!

Bridget wanted "to go to Mommy's office and meet Mommy's friends", so I brought her into the hospital to have lunch on Tuesday. She was on her best behavior, shook hands, remembered everyone's names, ate all her lunch, and then insisted on going back to daycare for her nap. She was just perfect!

Courtney had an additional photo shoot with Jamie (of I See Beauty Photography) and she did so good. I know we got some wonderful images of her in an antique pram. I'm so excited to get these gorgeous photos in the house...Jamie has such a gift. I'm hoping to get a great black & white set of prints for a big wall collage. I am so excited! (Stay posted for a little peak!)

Pictures from the Beach

Last weekend the whole family had a wonderful holiday at Avila Beach. We stayed at the Avila Lighthouse Suites which is right on the beach and it worked out great. We were right across the street from a nice park an were right at the beach as well. We were able to walk everywhere and had a lot of fun.

Of course, with Bridget being 2 1/2, it's always a challenge everywhere we go, but she loved the beach and had so much fun. Courtney was perfect as usual.....how did I get so lucky to have such an easy-gong baby? Well, here are a couple pictures....

My blog...at last!

So here I am, a webmaster for 10 years and not much web presence! Add in my passion for writing, and it's really about time that I started a blog. Now, I am a busy mom, wife, and professional trying balance a full-time job with late-night feedings and staying active and maintaining some sort of social life, so it's not so crazy that I've dragged my feet on this blog-thing.

But here I am now...yay! We'll see how long this lasts. I don't know who will read this or what I'll even write, but I'm going to give it my best effort. I did start too late today though....it's bedtime already (not a good start).
