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!

Birthday Invites going out soon!

Mommy had been working hard on getting your birthday party invitations out. You keep trying to help, but Mommy always says no, so mean! So many things to print, glue and craft. They are going to turn out so great though. I can't wait to see what the final product looks like. I am preparing about 70 invitations, yikes! You are one loved baby Genevieve...

Playtime in the yard

This week at work I am getting off at 5pm so we have lots of time to play when I get home. Daddy took you out to the yard and I joined you. You practiced your walking (getting so good! Can take 4-5 steps at a time now) and banging around mommy's camera bag. Your Nightmare Before Christmas oneise looked so cute on you. I bought it before you were born at a thrift store and the size was cut out. I kept moving it along with the different sizes until now when it fits you perfect.

Interleague Play: Angels and Dodgers

It is that time of year in baseball, interleague play! Angels and Dodgers are facing off over the nest week or so and since you outgrew all of your Dodger outfits this time you get to be an Angel fan! Daddy and Dave didn't like your outfit very much but Uncle Scott, Uncle Chris and Grandpa Gino love it.

Daddy is working on putting together a slideshow of photos from your 1st year. He is pulling a photo from everyday here on the blog and making a fun slideshow to play at your birthday party on July 31st. What a lot of work! But Daddy volunteered (or maybe Mommy volunteered him?!?) so he is working on putting it together. He showed us the partially completed show tonight and it looks great!

Meet Baby Lindsay

Today we got to meet baby Lindsay, Laura and Brians new baby! She is such a pretty baby and so good. Looks like you are going to have competition Genevieve for cutest baby around! Laura and Brian were very nice and let you play in her jumper and even use her high chair (she is too little for them right now). We had a nice BBQ and enjoyed the mild weather outside.

You use to not like your sippy cup and would mostly wave it around. Well tonight Daddy put lemonade mixed with lots of water in your sippy cup and you went to town! You drank almost the whole thing and wouldn't set the cup down all night! I guess the problem was before that you didn't like water in your sippy cup, not that you didn't like the sippy cup. I am going to buy some 100% juice for you tomorrow, a little better for you then lemonade! For dinner we went with Dave to Souplantation, we love that place! This is a photo Dave took of you and him before we left, he even made his Facebook photo.

Sam Maloof House

I was in need of a place to shoot your birthday party invitation photos. I am tired of all the same old locations (memorial park, our yard, etc) so I took you to the Sam Maloof house in Rancho Cucamonga to take some photos of you. It is hard to get you to smile and not cut off your head at the same time when I am by myself but I did ok! You even played in the dirt a bit and had a good time! It was warm so we came back to the house after we were done. Mommy will have to go back and do the tour another time when I am by myself. The photo we ended up picking is a surprise, check your invites to see which one was the best!

Swiming Time!

It was a hot day Genevieve!! We took you across the street to Adam and Judys pool when Daddy got home from work. Even though it was warm out the water was still a little cool and you didn't like it much. Hopefully the water will warm up a bit more so you can enjoy splashing around! You looked so cute in your bathing suit Grandma Terri got you, you will got a lot of use out of it!

Fun Game: Pushing Chairs around...

Genevieve you have come up with a fun new game. You love pushing the chair around the dinning room. It is really fun until you push to hard the chair falls forward, making a loud noise as it hits the ground. You get scared but then you are right back to pushing the chair again. I wonder how long this will keep you entertained before you find something new to do!

Climbing Up and Up!

Genevieve are you starting to turn into a climber. You realized you could see more things the higher you go and you consistently trying to climb up on things to get a better view! This outfit is one of the cute new outfits Grandma Terri bought you for the summer. I love it on you! It is perfect for summer time.

Summer Solstice

Published with Blogger-droid v1.7.2

Being that it was the Summer Solstice I thought we should take advantage of the daylight we have.This photo was taken at 8:00pm! We walked from our house to Foothill and back. You were a good baby and kept fighting sleep the whole time. When we got home you ate and went to bed early, what a treat for Mommy! I got to make my lunch with two hands, fold the laundry and watch tv. What a good little girl....

Fitting under the Table!

For now Genevieve you can stand up under the table without hitting your head. To get out from under you have to duck down a bit but you must be use to it because you never bump your head. It won't be long before you don't fit anymore, maybe we will have to buy a taller table!

Fathers Day

Today was Daddys 1st Fathers Day! You helped Mommy pick out and wrap Daddys gifts the night before. You had even made him a nice frame. Uncle Scott helped make your silhouette on the computer to put into the frame. After opening gifts Mommy had to get cooking! We had 9 people for brunch: Mommy, Daddy, Grandma Diane, Grandma Terri, Grandpa Gino, Aunt Teresa and Uncle Scott, Uncle Chris and Great Grandpa Fortune. We had a feast Genevieve! Cream cheese stuffed french toast, eggs baked in ham cups, quiche, bacon, fresh fruit and more. We stuffed ourselves full! Afterwards we went to the park and I tried to do photos of you and daddy but you were sleepy and not very cooperative. You were to busy pushing your stroller around to be bothered to pose for photos. I got a few good ones in anyway!

Genevieve says Duckie

Since you got into all the little shampoo bottles I moved them and took the duckies down to where they use to be. You love taking all the duckies off the shelf almost as much as you loved taking the shampoo off! Tonight you were in the bathroom and without me saying anything you looked at the big duck and said "Duckie!" I was so proud of you Genevieve! You said it a few more times as well as you played with the ducks. What a smart little baby girl. I love you so much Genevieve!

Grandmas Retirement Party

Today was my first Friday off since we started the 4/10 schedule at work. It was so nice to sleep in and relax! In the morning Lori came over and scrapbooked and in the afternoon we went over to Grandma Terri's school to her retirement party. The teachers there put together a nice party in one of the classrooms to celebrate Grandmas teaching career. Afterwards we went to her classroom and got ot look through some of the books to add to your library here at home. Mommy had to go down to Orange County so Grandma brought you back home to Daddy. Grandma is looking forward to watching you this summer and next year now that she is no longer going to be teaching!

BBQ Dinner Time!

Tonight I got some Mommy time inside the house (so exciting, picking things up, cleaning and cooking!) while you had play time outside with Daddy. Daddy was BBQing chicken and he moved your playpen outside so you could enjoy the great weather we have been having. You kept yourself busy for quite a while outside before you got bored. By then it was dinner time and you enjoyed chicken, blueberries, puffs and cheese, what a yummy dinner!

Genevieve Look Alike!

Grandma Terri got you this book a while ago with photos of babies and there is a Genevieve look alike in the book! A little more hair (is that even possible?) but the same face and hair color. The book must not taste as good as the Animal Friends Grandma got you at the same time. You barely even chewed on this one!

Making gifts for daddy...

On Monday we started our summer 4/10 schedule at work. Being that we are only in Day 2 I can't provide a comment if I like it or not but it is differnt. I have to take you up to Nancys at 6:30am, you are so tired little girl! Today I brought you up there sleeping but as soon as I set you down you woke up! So much for that experiment... Today at work my department won first prize in the centerpiece competition! I didn't do much of the work but it turned out great! We won $100 to use towards on campus catering.

You have been loving your yogurt Genevieve! You can't get enough of yogurt and cheese lately. I was worried to much dairy would hurt your belly but you seem to be handling it just fine. You love looking at the baby on the side of the yougurt container as well, you even say "baby?" point to the baby then yourself!

Tonight you painted a frame for Daddy for fathers day. I thought for sure you would make a huge mess and would try to eat the paint. Turns out neither happened! You weren't even that interested in the paint, more interested in trying to stand up in the bathtub and I had to hold on to you so you wouldn't knock yourself out...  At the end you got a little into it but hopeful next time you will embrace your inner artist a wee bit more Genevieve!
