Daddy Dearest

I just can't get enough of these two together ...

Happy Birthday Uncle Richard

Uncle Richard and Miss Lindsey came down from San Fran this weekend to celebrate Mogwai's Birthday. We had a great time and even got Mogwai all set up with the Mobi so he could wear his mini Mogwai everywhere we went.  As you can see, Nico was quite cozy against his uncle's chest.  We also got to enjoy our traditional birthday dinner in at our favorite sushi restaurant Sakana!

A couple more pictures of Nico enjoying time with Rich & Lindsey ... come back soon!!!

Picnic at the Mission

Sunday afternoon we enjoyed a nice picnic with a bunch of Nico's friends from one of our classes. The weather was gorgeous and all the babies seemed to enjoy some time together on our blanket ... it is amazing to see them all growing and changing!

Taste of New Mexico

Mel and Ryan brought Nico this beautiful Navajo rattle from New Mexico.  It is the first thing he has really been able to hold onto by himself.  He loves shaking it around and is starting to gnaw on it quite a bit ... hopefully this is not a sign of teething YET.  Thank you both for the wonderful gift and fabulous time together - come back soon!!!

The Godfather

Nico's godparents came this weekend for a quick visit with us.  He just melted in their arms and I think we MAY have gotten the Don over his baby drool fears ... it is so hard being so far away from them and we cherish every second we get.  We love you both so very much!!!

NFL Lineup

While Celeste was here we went on  beautiful beach walk and had lunch with our friends Larissa and Grant.  It was fun to finally get the boys together and catch up with each other.  Based on size, it is pretty clear these lil' chunks are headed for the NFL draft!

Auntie Tina

Auntie Tina came to visit this weekend and we had a blast!  She was so amazing with Nico and we miss her already.  Thanks so much for coming down and helping while Bri is away ...

Daddy's First Trip

Bri had to leave for his first work trip on Saturday so Friday afternoon was filled with lots of Daddy time ... absolutely adorable these two!

Lovely Ladies

Nico got to spend time with lots of beautiful ladies this week.  Cousin Claire met up with us for a sunny walk and quick lunch before she headed back up north.  Bella Diane was the guest speaker at our PEP class so Nico got a quick cuddle with her on Wednesday and we stopped by the CC Studio on Friday so he could meet some of the team ... he can't wait for his Valentine's date with you Jaclyn!

We got a surprise visit from cousin Claire today and we really put to her to work.  She got to change a diaper and Nico's whole outfit since he decided to pee all over himself and her.  They then played together until nap time and Claire bounced him into dreamland ... she is already a pro with baby Nico! 

Coffee Break

We got a lucky few minutes with PoppaBear before our music group yesterday.  Nico adored being in his arms and really tried to impress him with his strong legs standing pose ... how fast he is growing!

Grandpa Perisho

... studying Grandpa 

Aunt Vicky and Great Grandma Jan

Saturday Nico got to meet his Great Grandma Jan and Great Aunt Vicky.  He had a ball laughing and playing with both of them.  It was so much fun to see him interacting with everyone ... what a lucky boy to have so much love!!!

Visit with Great Great Grandma Isha

Friday was a very special day for Nico.  We went on our first car trip down to LA and he got to meet his Great Great Grandma Isha who is 103 years old ... she has been so excited about his arrival! It was incredibly touching to see her with him and he just loves the beautiful blanket she knit for him (shown in the pictures above).  We are so lucky to have gotten some time with her while we were there and look forward to being back soon.

Nico has been incredibly spoiled with amazing gifts from friends and family since his birth (and long before).  He has just recently gotten into looking at things and two of his favorite objects to ponder over are  these beautiful hand knit pieces. Zeta the Zebra was made by Karen George ... Nico just loves laying in his crib and 'chatting' with his new friend.  Bert was given to us by Uncle Daniel along with a basket full of handmade family goodies for Nico to enjoy as he grows.  He can't wait to meet both of you!
