I had the privilege of being pregnant with my good friend, Shae. She was six weeks ahead of me so I got a sneak peak into what to expect. Now our babies are here and Johnny and Leif are so cute together. Here they are at around 3 and 4 months and at 6 and 7 months.

Evan is such a good father. Johnny has brought out a side in him I didn't know was there. I now hear him say words like "sweetheart" and "cute" when talking to his son. Evan is typically a private and very introverted guy, he isn't one to wear his heart on his sleeve. But when Evan holds Johnny, you can just see his love for that child all over him. It's beautiful. Here's to you,Ev.

Aaah, motherhood. I've got dark circles under my eyes, messy hair and probably need to shave my legs, but look how happy we are.

This is Johnny in his tummy tub. My mom brought it from England for me when Johnny was born and it has been one of my favorite baby things. Unfortunately, Johnny has out grown his tummy tub so it is now on loan to his buddy Basil. May he have as many happy baths in it as Johnny did.I did find an exciting replacement and Johnny is still enjoying his bathtime.
Tough guy.

For Christmas Evan's mom got us zoo passes. San Diego has one of the most beautiful zoos and I couldn't wait to take Johnny. Monday was an unseasonably warm coastal day, perfect for a stroll around the zoo with my friend Syra and her three kids; Esther, Sophia and Basil. My favorite exhibit was the orangutan. They are so interactive and one was especially interested in two month old, Basil. Motherhood has brought out the sucker in me and I bought Johnny a cap at the giftstore by the ape and monkey exhibit. I didn't get any great shots of the animals but the kids were cute as always.
