All is looking up!!

Well, it has been a crazy couple of days here in So Cal! With the winds and then the fires and my daughter deciding sleep is not important anymore, it has been challenging. I am however glad to report that there looks like they are making headway on many of the fires as the winds have died down today. It appears that the cabin was spared although we do not know that for sure but it looks really good. Mia did well last night as I just let her cry it out. I put her down the second time as I was writing my post here and she cried for a good 20 min and then nothing-- she had fallen asleep THANK THE LORD!!! I expected her to wake up a bunch of times but she only woke up once at 1:30am. I gave her a bottle and she slept until 8am--- YAAAA!!! I wanted to show pics that she indeed made it through a night of crying and came out the other end just fine.

The first set of pics are of her cute new Gap shirt. I just love this shirt. Not sure why I love it so much but it is just adorable-- love the winter blue and the snow flakes-- too cute!! The second pics are of lunch with Kevin and Mia decided she loved to eat crayons. We just had to laugh as every kid in the history of time have ate crayons so we figured this was a right of passage. Anyway, enjoy!!!


  1. Love her two little teeth poking through. She's adorable.

  2. I found you through Kim (3peanuts). Your daughter is beautiful.

    So you know, I am hosting a blog makeover contest. One winner each month gets a free blog makeover (all the winner has to do is donate a little something to a charity). I recommended half the sky but anything works.

    You can find the link at in case you want to enter.

  3. I can see why you love THE shirt ~ its adorable! I also love the GAP!! I'm glad she slept after the 20 min. cry-out. I bet tonight it will be even less crying and then the next night less and so on... (It's so hard though)

  4. Be strong Mama! It is truly harder on you than it is on her.

    Thanks for the B-day wish.

  5. So glad to hear that the cabin looks like it made it through the fire. You've all been in my prayers.

    I'm also glad to hear that you got some sleep. Life is always better when well-rested. I hope Mia doesn't cry for you at all today!

  6. I love the pictures...and Mia's new shirt! How cute is she?!?!? I am SO glad to know that the fires are getting more controlled and that your parents cabin may have been spared. Praise God. I've just been so concerned as I watch the news. We will continue to pray!! Thanks for the great pictures!! Keep them coming! Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Cute shirt and love the little face after she just ate the crayon....
