Da-Da is in L.A. today-if you are checking this- we miss you! Someone who shall remain nameless has been walking around the house all day yelling "Da...Da...Da" and I think he's quite dissapointed that "Da" hasn't shown his face. We played a mean game of peek-a-boo on the bed this afternoon and H was quite pleased with his hiding abilities. H was a hugging machine with his new friend Sophia today-he's already laying the charm on the ladies! Time to put the little man to bed! See you tomorrow Da!

Here goes it...I'm exhausted, not gonna lie. I've been cleaning like it's my job for the last 3 hours straight. Oh wait, it is my job:) I have company coming over for coffee and muffins tomorrow morning so I'm off to the land of nod, pronto. Look out for what's promised to be a wicked supah post tomorrow!

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

I took Hunter for a drive to the beach this afternoon hoping it would help him fall asleep and nap. It worked. I snapped this shot of the sun starting to set. It was lovely. I was getting excited because my husband was on his way back from Chicago...not too much longer until he's home. The best part of my day is having both of my boys tucked in my house with me.
What fun we had today! Two of my girlfriends came over with their kids for a playdate/momdate. The kids all had a blast and so did the moms. It really is hilarious having conversations these days while simultaneously watching kids. It's communication chaos...in a good way though. While attempting to keep an eye on your child you try and have an adult conversation... and in your excitement to be talking about something other than diapers and naps you spew out a million and one topics, all the while realizing that you've turned into a multi-channel conversationalist. That's just how it has to be done though, otherwise life happens and I get sidetracked and/or I completely forget what I wanted to mention. All in all, we had lots of laughs and I'm looking forward to our get together next week. After our company left Hunter and I were playing and I couldn't resist taking pictures of him-he just laughs at everything and smiles like he's constantly being tickled. He tickles me.

I do. Most every day in fact. I don't know how I got so lucky (and I do mean lucky) but I truly couldn't have a better family or friends. To me that's everything, icing on my (preferably vanilla) cupcake of life. I have to admit since having my son Hunter, life became much clearer and my focus less blurred. I won't lie, it took a few months to adjust to mommyhood. It's harder than any job I've ever had, but more rewarding than I could ever dream. Everyday I look at my little man and my heart melts. Two days ago, when "H" awoke, I carried his sleepy little body into bed with me to snuggle, as we were lying next to eachother with our noses almost touching he leaned into me for the first time, smiled and gave me a kiss. Ahhhh, the joy. This past year and a half has been a wild ride. I became pregnant after years of trying, left my job in Advertising, became a mom, we bought our first house and moved cross country when our son was 4 months old leaving sunny San Francisco to move to the suburbs of Boston. Changes galore. You know what? Everything is falling into place. I'm missing my SF girlfriends like crazy (thank God for the internet and cell phones) and I miss SF, but not like I used to. As of late my husband and I have really started to feel settled. Our families are close by and we are meeting new friends. This is the good stuff. The really good stuff.
