Josephine is Two Months Old!

Another month down. This past month was a big one for our little girl. She met both sets of grandparents, celebrated Thanksgiving and also got to go to out for lots of diners, walks, and fun times with friends. Lucky for us she sleeps through most loud environments which makes going to dinner fairly easy. Josie does suffer from what we have identified as F.M.O. which is the Fear of Missing Out. Just like mom!

Nicknames: Josie, Josie-Bird, Miss Bird
Likes: She still likes going for walks in the moby wrap the best. She likes to face out in the sling to look around, she LOVES her owl mobile above her bed and likes to have a massage every morning. She also really likes Casper BabyPants.
Dislikes: Being left in a room alone or when mom and dad are not paying attention to her.
Accomplishments: Big Smiles, lots of cooh-ing, looking in the mirror, stronger head control.
Nuisances: Hiccups, gas pains
Starting Weight: 8 lbs. 13 oz.
Current Weight: 11 lbs. 7 oz.

Merry Christmas from the Museum of Flight

A couple of weeks ago while looking out my office window, I saw what looked like a shrink-wrapped B-29 being towed from the north to south end of KBFI. When it got closer, we noticed it was indeed wrapped, complete with gift wrapping bows on the forward fuselage and propellor spinners! Today, while running errands, I noticed it is now parked outside the Museum of Flight. Must have been a memorable Christmas!

Christmas Eve Walk

We were blessed with beautiful weather on Christmas Eve this year. It was sunny and in the low 50s. We had to take advantage of the weather by heading out for a nice walk around Mount Baker and Lake Washington. We covered about 4 miles. The walk made us feel a little better about all the cookies we ate later! Merry Christmas!

A Merry Sunny Christmas Eve!

Today was gorgeous in Seattle. Might have hit the 50s, and it sure felt like it in the sun. A great day for a nice long walk with my girls.

Merry Christmas!

P.S. I won those sweet slippers (pictured in the last posting) from last night's white elephant exchange party.

Merry Christmas from Our Home to Yours!

New Restaurant in Beacon Hill!

Newish that is.. Bar del Corso opened in July and has quickly become a really popular restaurant for those of us who live on Beacon Hill. I also believe some recent favorable write ups in the local press has also increased popularity because we need to get to the restaurant right at 5pm in order to get a seat.

We were just there last week for the third time and the pizza is outstanding, they have wonderful seasonal specials and great sides. We love it.
