The New Baby

Well it has been 4 weeks and 4 days since I gave birth to our little baby boy Devin. What a world wind of an experience it has been. The first week was the hardest just trying to deal with the lack of sleep and zombie like feeling. Now we are starting to settle in with a routine and things are getting easier. I wanted to share some pics with family and friends to see our new addition and because I think he is supper cute.

Handmade goodies for the baby

When I was a baby my grandmother made me a handmade blankie that I still have today, it has been resorted twice but it is something that I keep dear to my heart. It is tucked away in my closet, but the thing that makes it so special is it was hand made for me. As it is almost time for our new baby to come into this world, I wanted to share some of the handmade items that were made for him.

I just finished this painting yesterday that I drew for the baby, this is not my typical style but I think it will go well in his room.
Luna Leda made this special blankie, and if you know Luna you know this is not her gig, but she spent many hours, sometimes in the wee hours of the night to get this blankie finished. She said there were times when she would ask her mother to help guild her in the making of this blanket. My grandmothers spirit lives on.
Aunt Ling made this special safari blanket that is just so soft.
Aunt Katie made this very colorful and playful blanket with a special soft cube toy that the baby can play with as he gets older.

Miss Jody T. made this oh so multi colored blankie and it even has a swan on it. She also had her crafty uncle make a Canadian sock monkey.

Jen Jen made this cute blanket with needle work all wrapped around.

Doretta made this plush blanket that will be sure to keep him warm this winter.

James old neighbors Karen & Dave crocheted this soft blue blankie.

Joann a good friend of the Millers made all sorts of cool and useful goodies including a body bib and changing pad. All the things that will come in handy.

Murder of my beloved Tomato plant

About 1 month ago there was a crazy green, almost weed like plant growing in the front yard. As the day's passed I looked at the plant and realized it was a tomato plant. Wow!!! how did this get here? This mystery is still not solved, some say crows leave it behind. Anyhow this was excited since I have always wanted a tomato plant. Soon enough this plant was thriving and growing the best tomato's I have ever had. Every other day I would pick my tomato's and sing to the beautiful green weeds with the bright red fruit.

On Tuesday morning I walked outside to see if the fruit was ripe and ready for another picking, sure enough, ready to pick. I would pick my tomato's after work. Ready with my picking tongs I went outside... This is when I realized there was a murder in my front yard and my plant was the victim. My heart cried out, I think I heard it crack. Such upset to find out that the gardner hacked my plant. :(

You can see by the picture below, the red beauties just lying on the ground. :( :( that is double sadness.

Summer Fun

So much fun this last summer I do not even know where to begin. All I know is I can no longer wear white shoe's even if I am in California, and labor day has passed. My one goal this summer was to get better at wake boarding, and boy did I try and try and fell many times. I can say by the last trip out to the lake I was good to go and have conquered my goal for the summer. The Mr. also got very good, it was fun seeing the leaps and bounds. Here are 2 pics below, both at the beginning of the season.

Earth Wind & Fire

Do you remember a time when a song brought back such good memories? That is earth wind and fire for me. The Mr. and I went to the Greek theatre with some of our close friends and we just danced the night away. Great people watching and the beautiful weather to top off a great weekend. Here are some picture to share.

The River AZ

We went to Lake Havasu this last weekend for some R&R but got cold and rain for the first two days we were there. When Sunday rolled around; the sun was half way out and we were able to go out on the water. I love it when it is about 100 degrees and my body is in the water. It only got to about 80 but I got some great pictures that I wanted to share.

Are these clouds Chem trails??? Ever listen to Coast to Coast... No actually I really like this picture below there is such contrast from the water to the mountain then up to the sky.

Odd Quirks

I was so delighted to find that I was tagged by Snow White's Legacy to share my 6 unremarkable quirks. Here they are:

- I dry off completely before stepping out of the shower "no wet floors in my bathroom"

- When I am thinking I take my thumb and touch it to each my fingers and go back and forth... I think this helps me concentrate

- When ever the ice cooler gets full of water I must remove the water from the cooler - kind of like rainman "yea water".

- When ever I go to the grocery store I always search for the use by date and if it expires soon I will not buy it. I also will reach in the back because that is where the best dates are found.

- The toilet paper always needs to be over the top not under... I have been known to go into peoples houses and change it to the right direction.

- I love Naps, I mean I really love naps; I look forward to my weekends where I can take a nap. I have been known to nap while at the river, in a car, or just about anywhere that I can lay my head.
