Splish - Splash Adin's takin a bath!

Adin really loves taking a bath. He loves kicking and splashing. Most recently, he has begun to enjoy his bath toys as well. Miah called me in the other day to show me that he had managed to grab onto two at the same time... I just couldn't resist a picture. He wouldn't take his eyes off his ducky, which is just as cute!! I had to throw in a picture of Adin in his bathrobe, just because I love it too!!

The Wedding Planner

As most of you know, Maria is getting married here in less than one month... holy moley, I know, its crazy!! I am super excited, and super busy at the same time! Although I am living in a totally different state, I have been busy helping Maria get everything planned and put together. It is pretty fun and exciting... especially since for my own wedding I was so blissfully in love, that I was pretty oblivious to everything that was going on (thank goodness for wonderful family members who put a lot of time and energy into pulling everything off beautifully!!!) I am so excited for her - being in love is probably the most wonderful feeling in the world!
Just to give you a little taste of what is to come, I created a little mosaic (yes, my first...thanks Kerri and Tasha for the inspiration, and the know-how), featuring the cute couple (picture taken and edited by Tasha), and a sampling of the ideas we are working on! It should be a beautiful wedding.PS I can't wait to see all of you in Seattle... so soon!!!!

Adin's Nursery

We are loving the extra bedroom in our apartment! Room 2 doubles as Adin's nursery and our desk/work area. It was so fun to finally put up his crib, along with the crib set we got for him. I haven't really done much else in terms of decorating the nursery, but this alone has been pretty exciting for me! Right now, his stuff only takes up a small corner of the room, but I know as he gets bigger/older, he will take up more space.What's amazing to me, is how well the crib and changing table match... both were given to us... by two different people! We really lucked out, and I couldn't be more grateful for their generosity!!!
Here is a closer up pic of the crib, although I am just realizing that I didn't even get the matching quilt in the picture... oh well, you get the idea - it is all boy!!

Baby Hippopotamus

Adin is such a big baby (as mentioned many times before), that about a month or so ago, Miah started calling him our baby hippopotamus, and the name has really stuck! The great thing was when I was getting him dressed last week, I noticed that a friend in the ward, who had made a few onesies for us, made one with a hippo on it. How perfectly appropriate!

Just yesterday, Adin started blowing raspberries! He is pretty excited about it, because for the past 24 hours, it is pretty much all he does! It is so fun to see him grow and learn new things... I love it!!!!

Adin's First Halloween

Adin dressed as a Bandito! Ariba! Ariba!
To celebrate Halloween, we went to Miah's sister, Shawna, in Glendale, for her ward's Trunk-or-treat. In order to get there on time, Adin and I met Miah at his work, which was fun, because his coworkers were able to see him all dressed up (which, mostly being Mexicans, they LOVED it!).

Adin with his cousin Jonathon.

Shawna gave him a baby-sized pumpkin bucket!!

Adin even helped me pass out candy!

And Adin did a little Trunk-or-treating!

All Done!!!
