Lena wanted to say hi


Today was a busy day! We went disc golfing at the MetCenter with Brendan, Roger, Chris and his cousin, Jeff.  We found this cool mottled bird egg. Then swimming! Yay Saturday!

Yucca is yummy

From Friday afternoon...

Momma and Poppa took little Lena out to lunch at a Cuban sandwich shop and discovered baby thinks yucca is yummy!

Not only were Mom and Dad's sandwiches delicious (the best we've had since we lived in South Florida) but baby loved the fried her yucca! (Mom and Dad did too.)

How many 8 mo old Americans do you think have eaten yucca? I love Austin food!

Post fail

Neither of the 2 posts I tried to post this weekend went through.. Boo!

Let's try again! Here they come now.

Happy Father's Day!

Ok, so we actually start with kitten Harley - the newest addition to our household!

Love that tongue!

My future's so bright, I gotta wear shades

Thanks, Oma, for these awesome sunglasses.  Lena is going to be the coolest baby at the pool!

PS Yes, still with the massive drooling. No, no teeth yet.

That's right!  Last night, Lena looked right at me and said it.  On purpose.  Ok, so I'm not sure if she was talking *about* me per se, but she was definitely talking *to* me, so I'm going to take it.  And blogging about it makes it official! Right?

First word = Momma

Next word will most likely be Dada since those Poppa "P"s are a tough sound for new little mouths to master. Stay tuned!

Zilker park

Went to Zilker park today. It was hot! Gotta stay hydrated. Had a great time with Grammy and Grandpa.
