It is a tradition in our family that when the grand-babies lose their cords.....I give the babies their first bath! So...when I got that call on Tuesday night....I smiled big and said, "I'll be there after work tomorrow night".

So....this is Phoebe's first bath...and she loved it!

Phoebe Josephina Piccirilli

Baby Phoebe arrived on 10-5-2010 at 8:32 a.m. and weighed 9 lbs. 7 oz. and was 22 inches long. Phoebe was by far....the biggest baby that Kelli has had. Her labor was 15 hours.....a shorter labor than a couple of her other deliveries. Mommy & baby are doing great! They arrived home on Thursday afternoon.

Thank you Jesus for another perfect baby that has blessed our family!

Cute little guy!

L.J. spent Saturday night with me. He initiated it himself...saying earlier in the week that he was going to stay with me in "three days". I wasn't sure he would...but when the weekend came....he was ready. And I was so happy! I had such a good time with him. I'll spare you all the things we did....but just know that his stay was fun and we stayed busy. I can't wait for the next over-nighter!

I didn't know these were so easy to grow. I didn't grow them.....but my sister's husband did. Aren't they beautiful?

Tea by Two in May

Tea by Two 001, originally uploaded by Mamaquita.

These are my three favorite girls in the world! Aren't they just beautiful?

One of the fun things we like to do is to go to Tea by Two......a couple of times during the year we make reservations and look forward to going until the day arrives. This was to celebrate Kelli's birthday and also it was Gianna's first time of having tea with mommy & mom-mom. We had "High Tea" while the girls had "Cambria Tea". A fun time was had by all.

If you are local and haven't gone to Tea by Two......make a date for you and your little loves! You will be sure to enjoy your hour or two there.

L.J.'s 5th. Birthday Party

L.J.'s 5th. Birthday Party 015, originally uploaded by Mamaquita.

L.J. just celebrated his 5th. birthday. He will start Kindergarten in the Fall and is all ready to go! He is such a cute little guy.....and stingy with his smooches. What is it about those boys? They don't like sharing the the girl's do. That's okay....I'll keep trying to get it anyway. I heart him!

Elijah, originally uploaded by Mamaquita.

Elijah is now 28 months old and is a happy, healthy talkative toddler. He speaks clearly & precisely and knows all the letters of the alphabet and the primary colors. He's really into dinosaur's and knows what species they are......and can pronounce them.

Would someone please tell me how these kids are so darn smart? I guess we should say that mommy, daddy & sister's are doing a great job with teaching.

He's still a little McStinker to me.....and always will be!

L.J. and Rocky the Robot Truck by Matchbox

This is L.J's new favorite toy......and it's mine too! It just arrived this week.....Uncle Chad returned another robot that he had gotten him for Christmas that came "not working" and he quickly replaced it with Rocky. Good choice!

Look at that smile and his new haircut! Where are those curls???? I love those curls.
