Best buds

These two have SO much fun together. My sis and I just love watching them play together. Every week their friendship seems to grow and it's just like sisters. <3
The other night Michelle and I were able to sit and finish our dinner while the two of them played nicely in the other room. We're hoping that was the first of many times like that!

Happy Birthday Grandma

Eliana helped Grandma blow out her birthday candles! Happy Birthday Grandma, we LOVE you!
(We forgot the candles... so we improvised!)

Happy Mother's Day!

I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to be a mamma to Eliana! We had such a lovely day - I'm declaring every Sunday is Mother's Day :-)
The morning started off with a sleep-in and waking up to Geoff and Eliana returning from an outing with flowers and starbucks... already a perfect day... and it got better. First we took a family bike ride down to the market to pick some things up for the week and enjoy the morning sunshine. Then, Auntie Mo came over and hung out with the baby while Geoff treated me to brunch (and unlimited mimosas.... yum!) in Los Gatos. It was heavenly to not worry about the time, enjoy our meal slowly and spend some uninterrupted time together. Geoff came back to be with Eliana and I escaped AGAIN to do some shopping! In the afternoon we all hung out and then went over to Grandma and Grandpa's house to celebrate all the mom's in the family. What a perfect day!

More, please!

Eliana officially does three signs- "more", "all done" and her newest one "please"! What a smart girl!

Happy first birthday Eliana!

Celebrating Eliana's first birthday with the whole family was absolutely perfect. We were so happy to be able to spend her birthday with the people who matter most in her life. It was a lovely brunch celebration, complete with mimosas!
