when i finally managed to climb off my schedule high horse & resolved to accept the fact that the entire first floor would not be impeccable by the time my parents arrived on the 21st i took a deep breath & i found these to be some of our most cherished times yet in our little home. here is a wrap up of our dear december, starting with the most exciting news, baby “bean” is a baby girl!! (that is her darling little profile picture we stuck in the christmas tree) we are just sooo very excited!
(we got a little carried away with pictures after the sullen ultrasound lady (who told us not to take pictures) left the room..;) i wish it wasn’t blurry, but i was laughing too hard!)
here are a few more snaps of the rest of our time together.. strolling down town, getting bagels & walking pikes market..
breakfast at portage bay, a mocha sevilla at café fiore & a view of the locks.. (incidentally, i just realized how many pictures i take of food! it’s just so fun to photograph! really, we did a lot more than just eat.. though, we did a lot of that too!)
christmas day & mom’s homemade snow cake!..
the rest of our time was busily spent on household projects ranging from a new gas line for the stove, a new organized face to the kitchen, painting & a new railing for the stairwell. whew! we even managed to squeeze hiroki’s and a fancy dinner at mccormicks before they left . we are soo grateful for their help & miss them already..
oh, and lastly, here's a prego shot at 20 weeks! :)
