Sophia’s 15 Month Check-up and My Week in Instagram Pictures

First things first…Sophia had her 15 month check-up a week after her 15 month birthday.  What a good girl she was!  She stepped right on up to the big girl scale for the first time, and weighed almost 21 pounds!  They measured her height (32″!) and her head circumference, then we waited for the doctor. Her height is in the 95th percentile for her age, her weight is in the 25th percentile, and her head circumference is in the 95th percentile (you can blame her daddy for that one!).  That means she is taller and has a bigger head circumference…

Travel Recap: Our Summer Vacation Part 2

Skaneateles, NY On Saturday morning, we got up and drove to Skaneateles.  We walked around downtown (which was absolutely packed) for a couple hours, then ate lunch at Johnny Angel’s for lunch, which was pretty good and cheap.  After lunch, we went to check into our hotel, Holiday Inn in Auburn, to start getting ready for the wedding.  When booking our hotel, there was hardly anything available, but almost everyone else we knew attending the wedding was staying in the same hotel, so we were pretty happy with it. In the early evening, we attended the outdoor ceremony then went…

Travel Recap: Our Summer Vacation Part 1

When Sophia was only 2 months old, Cesar, Sophia, and I took a trip to the mountains in Tennessee.  At that young of an age, Sophia couldn’t have been a better traveler for our 10 hour drive up to our cabin.  A year later…not so much.  At 13 months old, in planning our trip to upstate New York, we new good and well we wouldn’t be able to cross the Florida/Georgia line before we had one cranky little girl on our hands. In the past, when traveling up to New York, we have flown several times, but most of the…

My Week in Instagram Pictures

We live in a day and age where we practically need our cell phones to breathe.  I am no exception to this rule.  Not surprisingly, I use my cell phone camera more so than my point and shoot or DSLR in my day-to-day life.  I must admit, too, that I am 100% on board with the new Instagram craze and have far too many pictures on my Instagram account than any one sane person should.  Sooo…what does all this mean for you? I am going to share with you my week…through Instagram pictures I took. 1. My poor sweet little…

My ISR Graduate!

Before I even had Sophia, Cesar and I knew we wanted to put her in swim classes as soon as she was old enough.  Not just any swim class, though…we wanted to put her in survival swim lessons.  After some pretty thorough research and more than a few recommendations, we settled on Infant Swim Resource. To be short and sweet, the idea behind ISR is to teach babies (beginning at 6 months old) how to float.  It is really hard work for the child, but it is a huge commitment from the parents too, as these are just a few…

Sophia’s 1st Birthday

Well, hello there, strangers!  I guess there’s no other explanation other than…I stink at blogging.  It has been months since I last posted, and there have been so many things happening since then!  I’m going to try to catch up here, starting with Sophia’s 1st birthday. At the end of May, my sweet little girl turned a year old.  How it happened that quickly, I’ll never know.  As cliche as it sounds, it seems like just yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital.  It’s been the best year of my life, but a crazy one too.  She is…

Sophia’s First Easter

Well, a couple weeks ago was Sophia’s first Easter, and a fun Easter it was! We had about 10 cousins from New York come down to visit during their spring break, so my Nanny had a houseful.  It was agreed upon by everyone that we’d have a low-key Easter…so beach it was!  We all met at Nanny’s church on Easter morning for Easter mass.  We went back to Nanny’s house for everyone to get changed into their beach gear and see what the Easter Bunny left for Sophia at Nana and Pop’s house (yes, the Easter Bunny visited Sophia at…

Cesar’s Birthday

So, it’s official…Cesar’s getting old!  27, to be exact! His birthday was Friday, and we’ve been celebrating ever since. Friday night, Cesar got to choose what he wanted to do for dinner.  I told him I’d make just us dinner, I’d make dinner for everyone, or we could just go wherever he wanted.  He chose Chili’s.  Um, ok.  Those 2-for-1s will get ya every time, I guess!  So we met Cesar’s parents, my parents and siblings, and Cesar’s cousin and family at Chili’s after everyone got off of work.  We were quite the rowdy bunch, I must admit.  Between Sophia…

Sophia’s First Trip to the Beach

Cesar and I have been wanting to take Sophia to the beach for a while now.  But until yesterday, it just hadn’t happened yet.  Last summer, Sophia was only a couple months old, and we didn’t want to bring her when she was that young.  Then, it was way too cold for a few months (you know, like…in the 60s!).  And after that, we’ve had something going on every weekend.  Finally, a nice day coincided with a Saturday that we had nothing going on, so to the beach we went! When we got there, we put Sophia in the sand…

The past few months…

Well, hey there!  It’s been a little while, huh?  Well, I really have no excuse other than that life just got in the way over here.  Strange how that happens!  I guess I have a lot to catch you up on…you’ve missed a lot. I’ll do a quick little run through of the past few months. Sophia’s First Halloween The weekend before Halloween, we wanted to take some fall pictures of Sophia, so we took her to a local church that had a pumpkin patch, gave them a donation, and snapped away.  We got such cute pictures!  For Halloween, Sophia…
