In the last week... Wallace began swim lessons, Skyler is sitting up by herself, Gypsy had ear surgery, Rian got a tattoo, Wallace caught a summer cold (and coughed so hard he threw up all over me. And the couch. And Skyler's foot.), Skyler began eating real food, and I... well I don't know what I did. I took care of everyone. Actually, I also read through all the Twilight books, got to go off on my own a couple nights to get a massage, do some errands, grocery shop (alone!), meet some friends, etc. I've been well taken care of too. Beyond this week, here are some pics from the month of August.

Rian, Dave and Colby went to watch the Dodgers beat Atlanta ("In dramatic fashion", Rian says, "with Andre Ethier, Meg's crush, belting a 3-run walkoff homer!")

My mom with her 2 favorite grandkids.

Me and my sweet baby after a bath.

At our ex-neighbors house (they moved a year ago) Wallace LOVED playing dress-up with Dustin and Brandon's halloween clothes. He came out as a cowboy, pirate, and army lieutenant. And then he went and helped himself to a banana in their kitchen.

She loved this bite.

We watched Molly Jenson play at a house concert in Santa Ana.

"Faithful" in Japanese.

Rian's Tuesday night summer softball team.

Skyler sitting up (yes, like a monkey).

Paradise Point 2009

This weekend was our annual Wallace Family trip to San Diego with Mimi, all my Aunts and Uncles, my cousins and all their kids. Wallace had a blast playing with all his second cousins and having constant access to the sand and bay. This year everyone was able to be there except for my sister and brother-in-law... who are on a trip to Egypt and Croatia. They were super bummed to miss out. Rian and I love this weekend and look forward to it each year. We're so fortunate to be part of this big family who loves tradition and spending time together. Until next time...

Wallace was a little sticky after dessert... so we threw him in the pool.

Skyler update... She loves her hands.

She loves her feet.

She loves using the middle finger.

She loves sitting in the Bumbo.

Wally likes to read to Skye before bed.
