Josephine is One Month Old!

Wow where did this month go? Seems like just yesterday we were out for dim sum wondering how long labor would last. Josie's birth was a fun an exciting memory for both of us and we will look back at that experience with a big smile. This past month has been nothing short of the same.

Nicknames: Josie, Josie-Bird
Likes: Going for walks in the moby wrap, being held by mom or dad
Dislikes: Nakedness, sunlight, swaddling past 6am
Accomplishments: Sleeping for 4.5 hours straight, learning to suck on own hand
Nuisances: Hiccups, face scratching
Starting Weight: 7 lbs. 2 oz.
Current Weight: 8 lbs. 13 oz.

Disclaimer: We totally stole this super cute idea to track Josie's age from one of our favorite blogs Young House Love. It would be wrong for us to pretend we came up with it ourselves.

Dinner for a Good Cause

Last night we headed to FareStart for Thursday's Guest Chef Night. FareStart is a culinary job training and placement program for homeless and disadvantaged individuals open for lunch and Thursday dinners. On Thursdays they have a guest chef from a local restaurant come in and cook a three course meal. This past Thursday the Chef was Matt Dillion (James Beard Nominee) from The Corson Building and Sitka and Spruce. One of our favorite chef's so we had to go.

With Josie in tow, we headed to FareStart and enjoyed an incredible meal of smoked trout, braised lamb, and squash. A great dinner for a great cause!

Fall in Beacon Hill

Josie and I clocked 4 miles today. The weather was beautiful despite the fact that they have been calling for rain. We decided to take advantage of the sunny weather and walk down to Columbia City. Along the way, I took some great shots of the fall colors.

And this is what Josie did the whole time.

Introducing Josephine Rose!

On the same day as Rob's last post 10/23, I was in early labor and at 10pm on October 23rd, our lives changed forever as Josephine Rose joined our family. It's been two weeks and Rob and I have enjoyed every minute of parenthood so far.

This blog will not become a baby blog but rather just our family blog to journal our lives and have something to look back on one day. We're pretty busy right now so posting may be slow for the next few weeks.
