Ribs, Pumpkin, and TWO!

Steve took Grandma, Grandpa, RJ and I to Texas Roadhouse in Tracy, CA on Saturday. I had been sick for 4 days and starving the whole time. Rebecca LOVED the ribs, rolls, and sweet potato.

Then after dinner, we went back to Livermore for the Trunk or Treat. We went with Rich, Ashley, Crewe and Dayne (as well as granma and grandpa). Rebecca got to wear her costume for the first time.

Then Sunday night, Steve got the mail and in it came the second dolly. I bought another off of Ebay so we could have a back up to the ORIGINAL. Rebecca was so delighted to have TWO dollys. She hugged, cuddled, bit, and played with them both. My I love that cute little baby of mine.

Play Date

Rebecca's friend Cadence came over to play yesterday. They had so much fun with each other and didn't hurt themselves or the other. It was a good play date! Aren't they adorable!

This video is kind of long a little over 2 minutes. But for those who don't live in California, I thought you might enjoy it a little more to see some of RJ's personality. She is so funny with the faces she makes.

Best Weekend EVER!

I had a Girl's Weekend this weekend. Ashley invited Crissie and I to go with some of her friends to their "lodge". Check out Ashley's website for pics; I didn't take any. I did get 4 pages of RJ's scrapbook done.
So much fun!

Look What I Made!

Yummy! Vanilla Spice Cupcakes filled with Pumpkin Butter. If you want the recipe...check out the recipe blog link on the right under blogs. If you don't...don't tell me about it.


Rebecca has been crying a LOT lately. I think she might be teething again. Anyways, I've gotten some cute crying pictures.
I love it, especially because there is no noise with a picture.

Last night she crawled under her exesaucer, which she has done before, but this time she started crying...

Then she started laughing....

And she got herself out...but not through the leg holes.

Aptos, CA

We went to our friends beach house again (in case you don't remember the old post) on Friday night we drove down there. To get there you have to go on Highway 17 which is a winding two lane highway. It was rainy and a power line was apparently covering a lane. It was so SLOW!! Rebecca started crying and I had to pee. And the crazy thing about this "highway" is that you exit right into a neighborhood, so I could pee in lots of places, but I didn't know any of the people. Anyways...Saturday we went down to the beach at 11ish and Rebecca wouldn't take a nap before then.

Steve wanted me to point out that he has a shirt on even though we are at the beach.

After being at the beach, we went to Santa Cruz. We went to the pier and saw a bunch of sea lions. Daddy did RJ's hair before we went to Santa Cruz.

Such a cutie!

Then yesterday, Rebecca was wanting to play on the computer so badly, so dad got out my old laptop for her to play with.

Such a nice seat.

I Love It!

I'm hooked on this song. The only way I found that I could share it so you could listen was this 30 second clip of it. If you can find another way post it as a comment. Check it out!

Taking a Sip

That second picture cracks me up everytime I see it. The way her mouth is shaped. Rebecca started using two hands to get her cup up to her mouth and is able to get water out if it is very full.

Is the poll on the right working?

Conference Weekend

Steve didn't want to stay in the house sitting all weekend long, so Saturday we....


It was such a gorgeous day to go, and at the beach, Rebecca ate rocks.

And yes, Rebecca is fully clothed at the beach. It was still a little cool in the morning, but it warmed up quick and she got down to just a diaper. There were rocks in her pants, shirt and diaper, as well as the mouth.

On Sunday, we had our friends, Whitney and Dan, over. For the afternoon Conference we had fondue!! Rebecca thought it was quite tasty.

It was cheesy fondue that we dipped ham and bread in. We also had fruit ~ HUGE grapes, mango, peach, and raspberries ~ and veggies and dip. Yum! And for you Bebe, Rebecca is wearing her Little Pumpkin shirt and the socks (though you can't see them).
Oh and Friday, we went into San Francisco in the afternoon and watched the Blue Angels who were here for Fleet Week. Sadly we didn't bring the camera, so there are no pictures of that. Rebecca would watch the planes and then she would watch all the people walking around. They were so LOUD and it didn't even seem to bother RJ for the most part.

"It's a Compromise."

Dad: “I want to cuddle with you, but you don’t want to cuddle with me. If I give you the remote will you cuddle with me? It’s a compromise.”

Rebecca: “ya. ya.”

Beach and Tomatoes

Tuesday was a beautiful day and so I emailed Steve "can you get off early and we could go to the beach?" He replied with "not today." But then 30 minutes later he called to tell me he was on his way home because he couldn't focus at work. So we went to the beach! While at the beach, RJ was strapped in (as you can see) and she was opening her mouth really wide and putting it against dad's back and making funny noises. Dad thought it felt weird. What was bad was we were in a place that there wasn't a lot of sand. We laid out our towels and maybe 30 minutes after being there a big wave came up and soaked our towels. So now we have wet, sandy towels that we had to haul out of the beach, plus we didn't have anything else to sit on. Rebecca was covered in sand and in was in her diaper too. We washed her off in the cold ocean and then had no towel to wrap her in. So dad used his shirt to wrap her up.

I took a picture of my home canning! Crissie is awesome! So those are the tomatoes and applesauce we made and canned. I opened my first tomato jar yesterday. I did a home made marinara sauce to go in my baked ziti! YUMMY! I am in to baked pasta dishes right now, so delicious.

Then after dinner, dad and I were on the couch and Rebecca was playing. When I looked over and noticed she had climbed up on the bouncy chair. The climbing has begun, just like Bebe predicted, except she isn't on top of the fridge...yet. We have had this chair over by the bookshelf because we keep meaning to put it in our car to get back to Rich and Ashley, who let us borrow it. I think we definitely need to get it to them now. She is so ADORABLE!

The Teeth are Here!

RJ's top two teeth are both through! I just felt both of them! Its been maybe 3 days since I last felt and there was nothing and then *WAH-LA* teeth!


The last page of my wedding scrapbook has been completed! It only took me a little over two years. But I love it. Now it is time to start working on Rebecca's. I also did a quick video so you can hear how Rebecca's Swahili is coming along.

I forgot to turn off the music in the background so that is a little bit of Pete Yorn's EZ for ya.

Also, Steve and I watched the final episode of Rock of Love. Anybody else been watching that or is just Steve and I the only ones addicted to this silly show? The point though is that I am SO glad that he chose Jes. She was definitely the coolest. But its kind of funny how the other chick has his name tattooed to the back of her neck. haha!
