LA Auto Show & Tummy Time











The first pictures of are Kira's Tummy Time. She hates it! She seems to spit up everytime we put her on her tummy, so I'm looking for alternatives.
Kira went to her first auto show on Friday the 23rd. She slept most of the time. We had a good time looking at all the 2008 cars and the future spec cars.

Kira sure is getting big, she insists on sitting up when she's done eating and still loves to tell us lots of stories....( see video below) Hope you enjoy the pictures and if there are not posts between now and Christmas..... Happy Holidays!!!

She is getting so big!!












I can't believe how big Kira is getting! We went for her two month check up on the 31st and she is up to 11 lbs 11oz and is a whopping 23 inches long!!! She also got her shots which was not fun for either one of us. It made her Halloween not so fun. We did get to see her cousins all dressed up together and it was so fun!!!





Kira has started to smile and likes to talk to her mommy and daddy. It's hard to believe that it's only been 10 weeks but she is such a part of our lives.





Enjoy the pictures.....





Love to you all!

Nothing to Report

For those who are keeping track via blog.... there is not too much new going on. Last Dr's Appointment I was dialated to a 1.... woo hoo.... the doctor is telling me to walk which I am trying to do but my feel are so swollen I no longer fit into any of my shoes... so it's hard to be motivated. I see the Dr on Tuesday where she will try to talk me into inducing. Unless I can get some kind of valid medical reason for doing so that will not be an option until Kira is officially late.
I will keep everyone posted when we hear something. Keep me in your prayers..... I'm feeling good but starting to fear the labor.......
Bye for now

Bye T.C. We'll miss you!




TC.... what a crazy cat. Named from Top Cat, the cartoon, but soon the intials were changed to stand for Terror Cat. Brought all the way from England... he actually needed his own plane ticket to come home with us, and even delayed the flight because he had made a mess in his kennel. He was 13, not very old for a cat, but he certainly had a full life. Born in England, he was the runt. We brought him with us to California, where he ran away for about 6 months(my sister found him), then to Ohio( he hated the snow), then to Utah, then back to California and finally to his own place in Utah (so what if my parent's paid the mortgage, that place was his). That's a lot of traveling for a cat who hated the car!!! Anyway, TC was put down on Sunday because he was ill and after weighing options my parents thought it best to let him go. We all knew the time would come more sooner than later so it seems silly to be so upset by it... after all he was only a cat right?
T.C was a weird guy who loved to be brushed, who would say Hi to you and then tell you about his day when you walked through the door, who always reminded you that it was time for snacks and who loved to sleep right on your chest because that's where it was most comfy (one time I found him laying on top of my head). Yeah sometimes he would bite and he would always sit on your lap when you had something to do like read, cross-stich, if you wanted to pay cards or when my dad wanted to work on an engine.... but there is always a little bad to go along with the good.
There are some of my favorite pictures of him.... the first when he was just a little thing trying to catch the motorcycles as they came around the corner, (he was a racing fan!) The second is of him sleeping in his basket(stolen from my mother's collection) .... I never could figure out how that was comfortable and the last sitting in the sun.
.... to some it maybe silly to send a dedication out to our cat but to me it seems right to commerate a long standing member of the Winfrey Family. Bye TC... we'll miss you.

Baby Shower



















My baby shower was the 23rd and it was so fun!!! Auntie M and Cheryl did a wonderful job with everything.... we had a wonderful cupcake tower.... the cupcakes were wonderful. I got to see so many people I hadn't seen in a while! Just wanted to thank everyone that helped and came and ate and had fun! We got a lot of wonderful things but moreso I got to see people that I love. Austin helped me open most of the presents but was a little disappointed with their outcomes. It was good to have Mom and Hanni come with Austin and Michael... it was a long trip for them but it was much appreciated. The count down is 56 days.... I'll keep you all posted.

On the 6th we got to ride the new Finding Nemo ride at Disneyland! I won tickets through a passholder contest! It was so fun. Jacob and I took our sister-in-law and our neice and nephews. It was a hit all around!!! The kids loved the ride ( the old kids and the new kids) My niece (4) said it was her new favorite ride! We're so glad we got to go before the summer rush, they are estimating the wait to be 4 hours this summer!!!!

Memorial Day

We spent Memorial Day in Paso Robles. We had a great time looking at all of the old cars and I spent a lot of time people watching because being on my feet for that long is making my hips hurt. After about 6 hours at the show we drove down to Pismo Beach and took a walk along the water. Then we drove up to San Luis Obispo for dinner and had a great Tri-Tip. (Jacob of course had the ribs). On Sunday we drove out to San Simion to see the Elephant Seals. They are crazy!!! Fighting with each other all of the time. Pictures of the cars aren't loading but it's only 84 days until Kira is here so I hope you enjoy her pictures.
Will keep you updated as things go along!
