Fundraising For Eli's School

It's that time of year again. Eli's school is doing the wrapping paper fundraiser. If you are interested (no obligation) in ordering on-line please e-mail me and I'll send you an e-mail from the Sally Foster website. If you would like to order in person I have the order forms and books with me and would be glad to share them with you anytime. Thanks in advance for helping out.

Some Firsts In Our House

Last week was a huge week in our house. Jonah started Kindergarten and he started playing soccer. Below are pictures from both. Eli started school too, but Rob forgot to take pictures of him. Part of the new school for Jonah is a new routine for our entire family. Jonah starts school so early in the morning that Jonah & I leave the house just as Eli and Addison are about to wake up. Jonah loves loves loves his new school. He's so big and independent. On day 3 we were in car line and there was no one from the school there yet to get him out of the car. I told him that I'd have to go park and walk him in. He was emphatic about walking by himself like he does when there's car line (they walk the children to the gate and then the children walk to their classroom on their own). He demanded that I let him go by himself. So, I walked him to the gate and let him walk to his classroom by himself. Yes, I stood there and watched him walk until I couldn't see him anymore. I just couldn't believe that my baby was walking into school all on his own. He's growing up way too fast for me.

Jonah had his first soccer game yesterday, and it was OK. He really liked the idea of soccer, but wasn't very much into playing. He basically stood there watching everyone else play. He kept coming off of the field to tell us he was tired. I will say that they do practice before the game, so he had a reason to be tired, but it was kind of funny that he didn't quite understand the whole get back on the field thing. It was his very first time playing, so we'll see how it goes. If you're interested in coming to see him play please e-mail me or Rob and we'll be happy to share the schedule (he plays on Sundays).

Having said all of this Eli is having a really hard time with all of the change going on in Jonah's life. He has been needing a little more attention lately, which we are glad to give to him. He really wanted to play soccer with Jonah yesterday, but AYSO doesn't begin for him until next year. I think he misses his brother desperately and has to get used to the new way things are going. Otherwise, he has been his great bubbly personality that makes us laugh all of the time.

Just so you feel like you get a little Addison she's doing great. She started eating solids and doesn't get it yet. She still remains the happiest baby there ever was. We really don't know how an angel like her came to be in our lives, but we are the luckiest people ever.

Addison 6 Mo Old

Two weeks ago my photographer friend, Angela, came to take pictures of us at the park for Addison's 6 month portraits. As usual Addison was an angel. Eli didn't want to always listen or be in the pictures, but we didn't expect anything less. Eli is a free spirit and that's OK by us. We hope you enjoy these few photos. Thank you again to Angela from PBKisses.

As far as our summer the boys have been enjoying a great summer with camp 3-days a week and time with their Bubbe (my mom) 2 days a week. They only have 1 more week of camp, and then they are going to spend time with Nana & Papa (Rob's mom & step-dad) for 2 days. We're meeting some friends in San Diego for 2 days of Zoo and Sea World fun next week. Jonah is very excited to be going to the new school which he will begin the day after Labor Day. I promise to take a ton of pictures, and will post his first day of school. Have a wonderful rest of your summer.

My Newest Adventure

I wanted to share with all of you my new blog. Those of you who know me well, know I'm obsessed with organizing. One would not know that if you walked into my house right now, but that's neither here nor there. Anyway, I love organizational products and everything involved in them, so I decided to start a blog where I could review all things organizational. Best of all it allows me to share my point-of-view with the world. I know you'll say is the world really ready for that, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway. I'm going to try to add new things several times a week. Check it out: Fashionably Organized. Don't worry you won't get notified about new posts on that site. This blog will stay my family blog and I'll try to be more diligent here about posting news of the family, and pictures, as the babies grow.

Some New Photos To Share

I haven't been great on getting pictures of Addison out there to the world. I guess it's true what they say about 3rd children. OK not really! It's just been so busy that I keep forgetting to post pictures. Here's some recent pictures of our baby love! She is still every bit an angel. She is currently teething and we can't wait for that first tooth to come in. In true angel form she barely cries in pain. It's hard to believe she'll be 6 mo old next week. Oh how time flies...

The boys have recently taken to sleeping in bed together. This was the first night they slept in bed together. It melted our hearts.

Always a smile on her face no matter what.

A Few Pictures

Our new photographer does a great job, and she was kind enough to share some photos w/me, so I could share them w/you. We had a 3 mo photo shoot for Addison in the beginning of the month and here are a few of our faves. Sorry they are all different sizes. These pictures are from Angela of Peanut Butter Kisses so if you are in SoCal she'll come to you. She's so great and the kids adore her. Thanks again Angela for your FANTASTIC work!
