This Face

is awesome.
I'm so glad I caught it on camera :)

We have been busy around here...
entertaining guests
playing at the beach
cleaning and packing boxes
soaking up our last days of summer on the central coast
spending time with family & friends
scouring craigslist for part-time jobs
working (that's for Matt)
& raising a very busy baby girl!

I still have lots of catch-up blogging to do...but don't know when the mood will strike to do so. 
I've had a Kauai post saved for a while, but the pictures are all wrong.
Anyone else having trouble in blogger? I think it's the new publishing format.
It's not letting me drag and drop pics like I want to.

Anyway, we are moving next Wednesday.
Matt & I make a good team, he likes putting boxes together & I like packing them. 
It's like a game, to see how well I can make things fit. Like a puzzle. Anyone with me on that one? It's like rearranging to see how many dishes you can fit in the dishwasher at once

It feels like we just.did.this.

Santa Cruz here we come!

Ada is 8 Months Old!

Ada loves pulling herself up on the umbrella!
Suddenly I feel like she is growing up way too fast. She is hitting some very exciting milestones, and they are bittersweet! 
She is becoming so mobile. Crawling everywhere & pulling herself up on anything in sight (mom's legs included)! She's standing, walking with one hand held, balancing while holding onto things, and walking around while holding onto couches and coffee tables. 
She is loving her rice cereal & purees, especially blueberries, applesauce, carrots & yams.  Zucchini and spaghetti squash are just okay. She loves the little puff cereal, which I bought after she mooched one off Hudson at the beach last week! She picks them up with her pointer finger and thumb and sometimes ends up with two or three clenched in her chubby fist.
This morning she woke me up with her own little jibber jabber language, jaw flapping up and down, making those squishy cheeks bounce away. I opened my eyes, said good morning, and was greeted with the biggest smile, squinty eyes, and flapping arms you ever did see. Oh how I love my baby girl :) 
This was how last Sunday's nap looked :)
