Welcome to Genevieve's life!

Welcome to Genevieve's blog! My goal is to post a photo everyday to remember and document just how fast she is growing up. We don't want to miss anything!

Happy Christmas (War is Over)

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

My holiday wish for you....

Happy Christmas (War is Over)
By John Lennon

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear
War is over over
If you want it
War is over

Christmas Tree Shopping

After several attempts to get out and get our tree we finally managed to get it! It was Daddy's turn this year to get the kind of tree he likes, a noble fir. We got our tree from the Home Depot- I know not exciting but they have cheap trees and they are good quality! When we got home it was to late to get it set up but soon we will be able to decorate it!

Photos and Aunt Teresa's Birthday

Tonight we went out to dinner to celebrate your Aunt Teresa's 25th birthday. You wore your "Elf in Training" outfit for the first time- you looked so cute!! We had a busy day- I tried to do some photos of you for our Holiday card but they didn't come out as good as I hoped. On second review I did get some good ones! Still no decision on which one to use though....

Thanksgiving Part II

You had a second Thanksgiving and it is still 2010! The Hernandez family decided to do Thanksgiving on Saturday. It was just you and Daddy because I had a wedding I was doing so I couldn't go. Aunt Christi made a wonderful dinner and you enjoyed a nice bottle of milk! I didn't get home to late you and were already sleeping so I didn't get much Genevieve time, I will make up for it tomorrow!

Your 1st Hockey Game

Mommy took you to your 1st hockey game tonight! Your Aunt Christi and her boyfriend Danny also came along and we watched the Reign lose a close 1-0 game. We bundled you up because it is so cold in there!!! You fell asleep at the start of the 2nd and didn't wake up till 1/2 way through the 3rd. You made for a quiet baby! Can't wait to take you to more games, you loved watching all the people and seeing all the action on the ice.

Happy 1st Thanksgiving!

Today was your 1st Thanksgiving! We had Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma and Grandpa Di Donato's house. Uncle Jim, Uncle John, Great Grandma Theresa, Aunt Teresa and Uncle Scott were all there to help celebrate. Next year you will get to actually eat the food but for now your feast of milk seemed to make you happy.

Earlier in the day cousin Nirl and Ari were able to stop by on there way to there grandparents house in Palm Springs. It was the first time they were able to meet you! They couldn't get over what a happy and smiling baby you are. You got tired 1/2 way through their visit and had to go take a nap but enjoyed playing with them. Cousin Gina sent a nice gift over for you as well, some cute socks, boots and a little gift book for me. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and can't wait till next year when you get to have your own seat at the table!

Dark so early!

I hate that it gets dark so early!! Today Grandma was off of work and she watched you most of the day. Grandma likes to play and when your over there you don't like to sleep so you are always tired when you get home. I got off work an hour early so I went and picked you up from Grandma and Grandpa's house before it was pitch black out. By the time we got home and had dinner I was ready for bed! In the winter I will be in bed by 10 and summer I can stay up to 11, I really need my extra hour! We both shut it down early...

So cold!

The temperature dropped and it is chilly! When I say chilly of course I mean in a SoCal kind of way, high 40's over night and 50's during the day makes all of us break out our jackets, scarves and turn on the heater! We have you sleeping in your hat to keep your head warm over night. At least you start off in the hat, you seem to lose it in the middle of the night from your twisting and turning. We need to get you a hat with little ear covers on it next!

So Cranky...

You have been so cranky, tired and hungry this past weekend and looks like you are extending it into this week! Usually at Nancy's you eat 8 ozs and you are ate 12 today! You are a growing girl Genevieve, I am trying to keep up with feeding you but am glad I have a small store of milk in the freezer until I can catch up.

This time last year...

About the above photo- You and Daddy were sporting your Dodger Pride today! I think like Daddy you will bleed blue (at least if Daddy has anything to do with it). Daddy got you this outfit last year for Christmas even though you weren't here yet! We had barely known you were on your way and you were already getting gifts, what a lucky girl!
It was on this day last year that we found out for sure you were in my belly. We had a strong sucispsion that you were in there but it wasn't until the Sunday before Thanksgiving (today) that we found out for sure. It took an extra week because Aunt Teresa and Uncle Scott had got married the weekend before and your cousion Gina and her family were here staying with us. Then Daddy got sick and we had work, well, anyway, a week after when I could of taken the test I finnally did and it was postive! I got up about 7:30am to use the bathroom, got the results on a digital pregnancy test and woke up your daddy to tell him what we thought was true was indeed true. Daddy was still sick so we didn't to much jumping around but we were so excited! I had tickets to see How the Grinch Stole Christmas in Hollywood at the Pantages. Since Daddy still wasnt feeling well I took Gwyn with me. The next day I called the midwife to make an appointment for use to come in see what you were up to in there. Now a year later it is hard to imagine you were just a set of tiny cells dividing and dividing in there. Love you Genevieve...

Thanksgiving Warmup

Well it was a warm up meal for Thanksgiving! Our friends Denise and Austin had a test run of Thanksgiving meal at their house in Ontario and we went and had a wonderful feast. Ham, chicken, salad, rolls, vegetables, and lots of other goodies kept us full. You were a hungry little baby and ate several times when we were there- you must be headed for a growth spurt!!

Sleepy Night

Tonight I went to a Mommy's night out meet-up and left you and daddy home alone. You were already sleeping when I left and still sleeping when I came back, I guess I didn't miss much! Daddy was so tired and he was asleep to when I got back, two tired buddies! I got you up at 9:30 and let Daddy sleep. By 10:45 you were so tired again so you and I just went to bed (thank goodness for tivo!).

J'adore Genevieve!

Your Aunt Christi keeps you well clothed in so many cute outfits! Today you wore your onesie with the Eiffel Tower on it, it matches your G oneise Christi got you and your wipes case for your diaper bag. It is a still a bit big on you, but bigger is better then to small! Maybe one day me and you will go to Paris and see the Eiffel tower in person!

Super Baby, Part II

You got to be a super baby again! You wore your super baby outfit to Ms. Nancy's house today and you got to fly around the house again tonight. You look so cute in this outfit, hoping for warmer weather so you can wear it some more before you grow out of it!

Dinner with Dave

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.3

Daddy has school on Tuesday nights so instead of sitting at home alone we went out to dinner with your godfather, Dave. We met at Souplanation (Dave's favorite!) and had a yummy dinner. You were well behaved (as always!) and let mommy eat before you started making noise that you wanted someone to hold you. I am sure we have lots of trips to Souplanation in the future!

Monday Monday

Well, it is that time of week again, Monday. Monday is always a sad day because I have to go back to work and I don't get to see you all day! You also have been taking a 2 1/2 hour nap every night when I get home so I hardly see you at night either! I look forward to the weekend so I will be able to spend time with you again!

toys, toys, toys!

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.3

Today was the first day you seemed interested in a toy for the first time. When we held a toy in front of you, you reached for it with both hands and shook it.Of course you tried to chew on it as well, straight for the mouth! Time to break out all the baby toys I stored away, so excited to see you reach a new milestone!

Harvest Celebration

Tonight Mommy and Daddy went to an event for Mommy's work. Grandma and Grandpa watched you for the longest time for them so far! We went to the Renaissance Hotel on Hollywood and Highland for a fundraising dinner. It was super fancy and we had to get dressed up. Of course we missed you but we had  a wonderful night eating fancy food and enjoying the ambiance. Grandma ran out of games to play with you but you were a good baby and didn't mind.

Super Baby!

Aunt Christi bought you a very cute Superman/baby onseie complete with cape! The weather warmed up a bit and you looked so cute wearing it! Daddy had a good time having you "fly" around the house. I love the expression on your face in the 1st photo! I hope the weather will stay nice so you can wear it again!!

Maggie Simpson, Part II

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.3

We got a second use out of your Halloween costume! The sleep sack is perfect for night time, although it won't fit you much longer. It is size 0-3 and barely fits you now! I thought we would try to get our $1.99 out of it and have you wear it a few more times to bed. As you can tell by the photo, it must be comfy!!

Beautiful Girl

Well the song is Beautiful Boy by John Lennon, but we will just substitute Boy for Girl, and Sean for Genevieve! 

Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy) By John Lennon
Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He's on the run and your daddy's here,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It's getting better and better,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we'll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it's a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling Sean.

Peacock Hair

Somehow (not on purpose, I promise!) you ended up with a little peacock hair do. It was cute, though Daddy said the kids at Ms. Nancy's said your hair looked funny... funny in a cute way! You will have to wait for your next bath for your new hair do!!

100 Days old!

Today you turned 100 days old! Hard to believe 101 days ago I was still pregnant! Harder to believe 365 days ago you were experiencing your first days in my belly... Some of my favorites from this past 100 days are:

- All the smiling you are doing now
- When we did your newborn photos
- Your birth and the entire birthing experience
- Finding out you were 10 pounds 2 ozs!
- Having you meet everyone for the 1st time
- Your lobster costume for Halloween
- Bath time

I am still in love with cloth diapering, it is so easy and it is wonderful to know that you are not generating so much waste! Breast feeding is so easy to, I am thankful you are such a good eater! I love you so much Genevieve!!

Eating is such hard work!!

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.3

After you eat you have a tendency to fall asleep! Sometimes I can wiggle out and place a pillow where my leg was to support you so you can keep on sleeping. I can get things done and you enjoy your nap, it is a win win!

Jones Baby Shower

Today we went up to Molly's Souper for Eric and Lisa's baby shower. They are having a little girl, Athena around December 7th. A new playmate for you! You were a good baby, took 2 naps, ate and were so interested in looking around at all the people there. I can't wait for you to have another little girl so close for you to play with!
