Baby's First Halloween

We are about to head out to Long Island but first we had a trial run with Leona's costume. Cute as a bug!

Happy B-day!

Yesterday was Anthony's first birthday as a dad! He turned 32 this year and we hid his gifts around the apartment. He was not crazy about the one hidden in the bag of dog food, I guess it kind of smelled. Here is a picture of his monstrosity of a birthday cake, it's chocolate with peanut butter frosting and covered in reeses pieces. Josie really wanted some, I think she gets confused when we use her peanut butter. Happy Birthday honey!

Last weekend Leona and I hit the playground with our good friend the de las Heras's. It was Leona's first time on a swing! Thanks so much to Stephen, Nicole, and Griffin for a lovely day...and for recording this moment for us! We had tons of fun.

Dirty Bird

Anthony took Leona to the grocery store yesterday, here she is in her little shop n' play cart cover.  She looks miserable, right? Anthony thinks she looks filthy but I think it's just a little dark and blurry. I'd asked him to buy the ingredients for his own birthday cake, is that bad? It's so nice when they go to the store because then I get a ride from the train station AND I get to carry Leona Belle upstairs from the garage while Anthony carries the groceries.  It's a win-win-win. (Not for my poor hubs, I guess.)  I love taking LB out of her car seat when she is tired, she gives the best little sleepy baby hugs.

LB Knows Whats Up

New Rug

Leona seems to enjoy the new rug, there is plenty more room for her to squirm and roll. I know the crawling and walking days are coming soon but I love this time. Maybe if we don't teach her to walk I can carry her to her prom.

Hanging with my girls

Happy Weekend!

Leona is starting to really show us her personality lately. She loves being up on her dad's shoulders, it makes her smile immediately. She also loves applesauce, the remote control, and Josie's ears.

Welcome Maple Elizabeth!

Maple Elizabeth Kunz was born on Friday the 22nd at 6:29 a.m. Congratulations Johann and Angela! We're so excited to meet her!!! She is beautiful! I can't wait to see little Leona and Maple play together one day. That warms my heart, congrats you guys.

7 months

Leona turned 7 months on Sunday! Over halfway through her first year, I can't believe it. Anthony took her to the 7 month doctor's appointment on Friday. She weighed in at 17lb 6oz, but they didn't get her height this time. The feeding is going pretty well, so far she has tried apples, bananas, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. She hasn't really shown a preference for one over another as far as I can tell, but I'm looking forward to seeing how she feels about pumpkin pie once Thanksgiving rolls around. And one last thing, she has 2 little teeth stumps poking out of her bottom gums! This picture was taken right before she fell back on to Josie's back then tried to steal her bone. Those two.

Sitting Up!

Leona is pretty much sitting up now, though it's very new and we have to prop her up in a corner or near pillows so when she gets tired (or overly excited) she can fall back. It's so cute to see her sitting up and reaching for things. Of course we usually have her sitting on the floor or in the pack-n-play so she won't fall off the couch, this was just for the sitting up photo shoot. :)


These little blocks squeak like dog toys so when Leona plays with them she has to be in her crib. Poor Josie goes nuts, she wants them in a bad way.
