BBQ #2

Tuesday was the last day of our heat wave and I think it reached 95 degrees so we checked out another park for one more BBQ. Ths park was secluded and had a chinese garden....it was perfect. There were also tons of bunnies and ducks for Fifi to chase. Unfortunatley i think we came close to a nest because this one Canadian goose came after me and Fifi ....it was scary but hilarious because i was carrying her and running so fast .......she was of course laughing the whole time. It followed us all the way to where we were eating ans stayed about 20 feet away the whole time to make sure we didnt come any closer. It even chased Alberto when he was carrying Fifi. I have a video of it which i will post later!!!

Looking for animals ....that mean goose is in the background!!!

Alberto couldn't come because he was working but we had a great time. i got to see my best friend Sarah who is expecting a baby girl. Her name will be Rosalyn Sofia Ruiz.....and we'll get to meet her somewhere around 9/23/09!!!!!! We also went to a birthday party and had a wonderful time seeing abuela !!!!!

NO MORE BOBO!!!!

Sorry I have been MIA and sick all week since Tuesday so I havn't been doing anything online :( but hopefully this week will be better.

Anyways I wanted to announce this .....


SOFIA IS OFF THE BOBO (PACI) OFFICIALLY!!!!!







This took so long and trust me lost of tears from her and myself but we finally did it and she has been off the bobo for 8 days and she has not even asked for it in the past few days. Its so much easier not looking for it or having to take it out with us. There are times though that i miss it ....but tantrums are part of toddlers soI will get through it !!!!

Fashion Friday

Baby Bells



A centuries old tradition stands behind these darling jingling anklets.... For thousands of years Cambodian mothers have adorned the feet of their babies with silver anklets that have small bells attached to them. Traditionally, it is believed that the delicate jingling sounds would protect young children by warding off bad spirits. They also served a safety functional purpose by providing auditory clues to their children's movements, activity, and whereabouts.

"I have been in love with these baby bells ever since before i had Fifi. I've always seen them on the ankles of indian babies and asian babies and thought they were gorgeous so I have finally decided to get some for Fifi. I love love love the silver ones .....I just got her this one on ebay ...pure silver ...and only $12.99. This one is the bangle style but i also want to get her the regular style anklet too"







Here are some more pics and sits you can purchase them:
