Vintage Us.

San Diego. A week after 9/11. Tag alongs on the first date of another couple. Paradise Point, trolley rides, Night and Day Cafe. The human flag. Did we really look THIS young?

4 years.

2 states, 2 houses, 2 babies and 1 crazy, busy life. I may forget to tell you sometimes, but I sure am happy that we're in this together. It was no mistake that I married my very best friend.

Happy Anniversary! I love you.

7am. Groggy. Wrinkled glowing bone jammies. Some pretty intense bedhead. Snuggled up together with Bout and Blanks. Willing her to go back to sleep for just a few more minutes...

"Mommy, I'm Uppppppppppp!"

I walked over to her window to open the curtains as she stood underneath me. She took one look at the thick fog surrounding us, let out a deep sigh and said

"Hurry! Get the fan!!!!!!!!"

No way.

Seriously. How in the world have 3 months passed by so quickly?

Such a joy this little boy is.

Once eager to rush through the infant stage, I find myself wanting to drag my feet at this point.... to hold on to every bit of his cuddly, grabby, just ready to laugh, drooly-ness.

My experience before was that things really began to be fun closer to one, but this guy has made me a fan of babies. That whole "sleep like a baby" thing? I get it now. So does Mike. We stop at least once every day and say "is he a good baby or what?!"

I'm amazed at how much personality one little person can possess at 3 months old. He growls and plays "dinosaur" with his daddy. He is thrilled to get Lil's attention. He sends her into giggling fits with his squeals while we read together. (I'm pretty sure we're going to have another book lover in our house.) He babbles and coos constantly and is so darn expressive. He just makes us laugh.

Squishy little man. He rocks those arm and leg rolls.

We can't get enough of him.
