my very first birthday!

i had my first birthday! i woke up pretty excited. as i drank my milk while watching sesame street i wondered what one does on a birthday...i dunno about you, but here is what i did:
my grammy came down with some presents! i was excited to open them:)

what is it???

golf clubs!

look out tiger!
then daddy came home early from work and we went to target to pick out a new many to choose from
ooo..that one please!
i like this big red ball
mommy got me a cupcake, but i did not want it
the next day i decided to give the cupcake a try...and only had a couple bites because someone (mom) kept nibbling at it all day!

i'd say it was a pretty fun day...except for the part where i went to the DR and got a bunch of shots, but i won't mention that part.
can't wait for my party this weekend!

classic ollie

some ollie snapshots for your viewing pleasure:)

ollie's "i dunno" face

all smiles

ollie plays hard and crashes on the couch- his favorite nap spot.

poor ollie has bumped his head 3 times on the exact same spot! why do kids do that?! unfortunately the last one was a doozy! he pulled away from me and started running and fell outside of our apartment. immediately, he had a giant goose egg- imagine a golf ball cut in half and stuck it to his head! he cried pretty hard for a little while, but recovered and was laughing again in no time. he's a pretty tough little man!

he looks a little better today. we had fun at breakfast where he tried to eat most of it himself and did surprisingly well! i tried to get some good photos if the injury. it actually looks better in the photos. his forehead is still a little puffy, but at least it doesn't look like he has a golf ball coming out of his head anymore.

5 years!!!

cheers!! jonthan & i have been married for 5 years!
it's been a great and challenging 5 years, in which we've both learned a lot and grown together. i find it funny when people talk about breaking up or getting a divorce because "it's not working out, we just weren't on the same page" or "it's not the same as when we first met." sometimes i feel like jonathan and i aren't even in the same book, let alone on the same page! and of course things aren't going to be like when we first met- things change, people change, circumstances change. but at the end of the day we are best friends, we love each other and enjoy being around each other...most of the time:)

so for our anniversary, j's parents offered to watch ollie for us. friday morning we dropped ollie off and headed up to santa monica to celebrate. we stayed at the viceroy hotel santan monica, located a couple blocks from the peir. the hotel was pretty cool; i love decor and we got complimentary champagne upon arrival, which is always nice:) check out more of our photos on flickr ( i am still working on uploading more photos there)

the pool scene- they offered $2 drinks @2pm, $3 @ 3pm and so on, so it was pretty crowded. our room was right above the pool, so the only bad part of our stay was loud music late into the evening, but we did get to sleep in!

j relaxing watching some tennis

cool yellow chairs:)

i love the plates on the wall

the library

even our hotel keys were cool.

we walked down to the peir and then to the 3rd street prommenade, where we had a fancy burger dinner at johnny rockets:) yum!

i love santa monica, because it is always good for people watching.

us on the beach...
