Swimmin fun!

We went to our community pool last weekend with the Stathams :). Here is my naked boys in the parking lot getting ready to swim.

Well we did something that I am almost regretting. This is the after photo. We decided that we had been to the pool a few times and Jude was really liking it, so lets just try a quick dunk.
He hated it. He came right up crying, with the lip and everything.
I feel like a horrible parent, but I know that it did not hurt him and he will not remember it at all.
So we are just going to wait a while to try it again.

He dosen't hate me :)

It was a good day all together!

I am just waiting for the teeth to come in.
Any day now....

well were home

but while we were gone we hit another milestone. Judah got his first taste of semi-solid foods. He loved it! This is his first taste of peas.

And this is our set-up at home. Put him on a place that is easily cleaned.

It might not be as messy if he didn't have to touch every bite :). Notice the finger painting with carrots on his tray.

This is the way he is carried up to the bath tub. Somehow he manages to get it everywhere! Even in the chub rolls on his legs.

We are in Cali

Back at home! Here we are with our family just laughing and chatting!

My brother is married!!!!
It is so weird, and I think it is weird because I was such a big part of both of my sisters weddings. It turned out very well and we had a great time introducing Jude to his whole family.

This is Judah's wedding outfit. He had a white button up shirt and his cute new hat. He got lots of attention for that hat :).
He did look cute if I do say so myself.

And right now James is at home all by himself, Jude and I are coming home tomorrow. We miss you Daddy. I will miss my sweet Cali. See you again in December. Now it is your turn my family to come and see us.

A few more pic's of things we did this week

We went to the pool with the Stathams and the Whittakers (and I got to test my new camera's underwater function)
cool ha!

we hung out at home,

we played dress up,

and we went to COSTCO :)

He did it!!! for reals

Jude slept 8 hours in a row last night.
If only I could convince James to go to bed before 11 :) we might get to take advantage of this sleep.
You see since we have a new baby we have had to readjust our together time.
We call it date on the couch.
After Jude goes to bed it is our quality time together, usually talking and watching movies.
Here's to another good night.

Quality time with Daddy

James and Jude got some quality time today while I went to the Doctors. I have a sinus infection :(.
3 hours, 2 nose sprays and 1 antibiotic later I got home to a happy baby and a wonderful Daddy!

We Love You Baby Culin

My brother-in-law and his wife, my best friend (Eddie and Cheryl Culin) ARE AMAZING!
Here is where you can read their story.

goodbye to our little one:
We are crying tears of selfishness that we did not get to know you.
We love you without even seeing you. These little ones are you family.
We will teach them about you so that you will not be forgotten.
Say Hi to Jesus for all of us. I know that he will take care of you.
We will see you both soon.
With Love,
Auntie Lyssa, Uncle James and Cousin Judah

He did it!!!

Jude has been sleeping so well!!!!
James had to re-situate him a little last night, but then he quickly put himself back to sleep.
He got up next at 3. Let me re-cap: he slept from 8:30 to 3 then again until 8. I am so excited!
I feel so rested, even though I had to get up early to go to work :(.

It was a long night

so we did a lot of napping today. I slept for 2 1/2 hours together :). It was amazing.
Well this is how it went. For the past few nights Jude has been getting 2 hours of sleep then he wakes up and is not able to put himself back to sleep because I have such a hard time letting him cry. So, I had made a monster. After a few nights last week of getting up every two hours Mommy and Daddy decided that this weekend was the time to adjust all the bad habits we had created. I really have a hard time letting my sweet baby cry, so I cried with him. It took 2 hours to get him back to sleep last night, but we did it. Lets hope tonight goes a little better.

who am i?

I am not just a loving mommy, I am a softy!
Look at this face, but don't let it fool you.
Tonight we have decided to start being tough and I am not excited about it.
I have made a monster.
Last night Judah was up every 2 hours crying, hungry, and moving all around.
We need our sleep. Its time to get tough.
I hate this.
I will let you know how it goes.

The TV babysitter

I watched the Whittaker Kids yesterday and couldn't resist snapping this photo. I try as much as I can to keep the TV off, but they know that Mr James has a large DVD collection, so it seems like they come in picking the movie. They were all glued to the Lottle Mermaid, even mine :).

Jude really likes fish :)

Like Father Like Son

Whenever I work, James gets to pick up Jude a little before I get off work for some quality Daddy-Son time.

This is an example of what they do....
look at the top sports scores and sports breaking news :)

The funny part is Judah seems to really like it.
