We Did It…

We set out on our walk today and I felt like there wasn’t going to be a better time to try a longer walk than today.  So, we did it. We walked past the turn off for our “around-the-block” walk and just kept going.  2.1 miles.  No crying, just enjoying the morning.  Not a bad start to our walking/jogging career :)

8 Weeks Old….

Chomp is 8 weeks old today!

We love our happy, smiley, laughing little guy!


We haven’t been doing much walking because it’s been a trillion degrees out and Heather hasn’t been feeling all that great. Last night Little Chomp was pretty fussy so Josh decided to give him a change of scenery and take him out. He made it to the end of our street before he started crying. Heather thought that she’d try it again this morning and hoped for the best. It worked. He was awake the whole time and made it around the block without crying! YAY!!!! If this becomes a part of our routine maybe there will be hope for brisk walks and jogs in our future!! :)

By the way, it was 67 degrees during the walk…YAY! That might have had something to do with it. Hopefully it won’t hit 100 this next week.

Here’s Chomp chillin’ in his stroller enjoying the trees and smelling the fresh cut grass.

I’m a Cute Smiley Face…



What use are diapers…

The pictures say it all!


Front: Perfectly dry and clean!


Back: How did this happen??? (And, yes, I’m sadly for Little Chomp, that kind of mom who would take this picture before changing him). Poor guy!

Fun with the Canon Rebel…

The beautiful baby boy!


Foot on my momma’s hand!


Love my Lips :)


Cutest ear ever!

Burritos and Market Night…

So, as most of you know, we get together with our community group on Thursday nights each week. Usually during the “school year” that means dinner, games, laughs and being Survivor addicts.

Well, during the summer, there is no Survivor and we vary things up a little more.

This week about 25 of us met at Chipotle, ate a great dinner and a bunch then walked over to Downtown Redlands for Market Night. Market Night is about four blocks long and is filled with food venders, crafts, and produce galore. It was really fun to just walk around, be outside (and not be baking), people watch and chat with friends. Chomp did pretty well through the night and seemed to like the lights on the street and noises.

It’s been too long…


Collin has a lot of growing to do :)


I’m just too cute when I sleep :)


We have had lots of visitors again in the last few days.  Papa E., Grandma E., Danielle and Christina came to visit on Saturday.  I was on my best behavior and played and let them all hold and cuddle with me.    Then, today,  Tia Kimmy, and cousins Ashley, Brandi and Cassidy got to meet me for the first time.  It was so fun to play with the girls.  (Mom and Dad keep forgetting to take pictures-shame on them!).

Papa E. brought some pictures that he had on his camera.  So, here’s some additional pictures from the last few weeks.



Me in the NICU.  I’m sooo glad that I busted out of there.


Hanging out with Dad is by far the best!




Another family shot at Descanso Gardens.

Week #6…

Little Chomp’s Six Weeks Old Today!!

So, of course, for his sixth week birthday we went to Forest Home. We hung out at the Lake with the Holzer and Blanck families. We then went to Adventure Mountain and introduced “Crusher” to the AM staff, and his “uncles” Cayman and Sporx, and “auntie” Alissa. We had a great time and think that we may make lunch at the lake a weekly event!


Hanging out in my safari hat and outfit!


My first trip to the lake!


Adventure Mountain Rocks!


I love Camp!


I like my uncle Cam!


It was a beautiful day on the mountain!

We went to Descanso Gardens today for Jacqueline and Sergio Sais’s 25 anniversary wedding. It was a warm day, but so beautiful. Little Chomp got to hang out with lots of people who love him. Here’s some pictures from today!
