chloe: the bigness of big


:halloween & stuff:

although a bit early for the costumes, we decided to dress up chloe a bit early in a little outfit miss angelica gave us. it says, "i take after my mummy."

jared, myself, grandma and grandpa went to the mission yesterday, for delicious breakfast. sweet corn tamales...can't beat them.
the last 2 days have been truly relaxing. we always talk about taking a sabbath, but it can be very difficult, especially with the added work of having a child. we certainly love her, but there isn't really any true rest, especially for me, as i wake up every 3-4 hours at night to feed. but, i must say i feel blessed to even have 4 hour blocks of sleep. i really shouldn't complain.

last night, jared and i had our first date. grandma and grandpa were kind enough to watch chloe so we could have a romantic dinner at the prado in balboa park. i dressed up, probably more than i needed to, but it felt so good.

we both need haircuts, desperately. i basically live with my hair in a pony tail, even when i go out for a fancy dinner. we walked to the fountain at the park, chatted and laughed about life and how much it has changed. only 2 years ago, we'd barely just met. life goes quickly.

this morning this happened:

look closely under her bum and notice the glistening stream of pee. jared insisted that i take a photograph. i told him she's gonna pee and he said she wouldn't. oops. it was awesome. she's our little hippo.

jared, chloe and i took a lovely walk in south park/golden hills this morning. we went to the 28th & B starbucks and lusted after all the adorable craftsmen homes. maybe someday we can have the dog and the house and the kid...maybe even a little garden? chloe was an angel, sleeping for the entire time. it was almost like having another date, save the giant stroller.

this afternoon, we headed over to mission beach and the grandparent's condo. grandpa tip is in love with chloe.

we made cookies, watched the sunset, stared at chloe. all in all, another relaxing day with family. you really can't ask for more than that.

basically, it's all summed up here:
