We've hit some milestones around here this month.

Here's Naomi on the day she turned ONE in her birthday sweater from Grandma :)

Happy Birthday Mo!!!

I reached the 3.9 decades mark (and the daffodils are blooming in our yard).

And, the station wagon hit the big two-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh...

The Great Park Balloon

A couple of weeks ago, we went and rode the Great Park helium balloon. It is large. It is orange.

It was hard to decide whether to look down at the ground...

...or up.

We rode it twice and some of us still wanted to go back and ride again.

Fruit Loops vs. Cherrios

Naomi likes Fruit Loops. Naomi does NOT like Cherrios. If we put Cherrios in front of her, she fusses. If we put Fruit Loops on the menu, she is happy. If we mix them together, she sorts through them and only eats the Fruit Loops. Here she is doing her "I have Fruit Loops" happy song and dance.

The other day, I was sharing my chocolate yogurt mixed with Cherrios with her. I would try to give her only yogurt, but if a Cherrio was hidden too well, she'd spit it out after sucking all the yogurt off it.

This morning she hit a new high on the caution scale. She would eat ALL the Fruit Loops except the yellow ones. Those she'd sort out and banish them to the "Something That Looks Too Much Like a Cherrio" pile.

And to close, while we were documenting this behavior, Michael said, "Take a picture of ME!!!"
