Fun at Tortuga

The weekend of October 17th we headed up to my parent's house in Pioneer (my parents have named the house Tortuga) to celebrate my mom and Vanessa's birthdays. We also celebrated Beau's first birthday (better late than never). Mia and Beau had a great time together.

6 months

Mia is 6 months. She can sit up on her own for a short period of time, is eating pureed vegetables (we have tried carrots, sweet potatoes, yellow squash, peas and cauliflower...so far so good), is cooing all the time, and saying "mama" and "dada" (or so we like to think) and getting bigger and bigger each day. She doesn't look like a newborn anymore. Where did the time go?

Here is my attempt at a photo shoot in Mia's room.

We started the photo shoot on the floor...didn't work out so well. Mia loves to put things on her head (we think it is so funny)! We decided pictures may work out better with the support of her crib...

Jumpy, jumpy, jumpy!

Mia got a new toy that she loves...a JUMPER. She can jump in that thing for a good 45 minutes.

About a month ago...Mia decided that she was not tired and that she was going to be up from 2 to 5 in the morning. After trying EVERYTHING and when she was still wide awake we decided to put her in her jumper to let her burn off some energy. She jumped for a 30 minutes before she started getting tired. Here is a video of her at about 4:30 AM.

Vegas Vacation Baby!!

Joey turned the big 3-0 in September and we celebrated with a Vegas Vacation themed party. We gambled, ate, participated in an auction and had good times!

The AMAZING cake that Olivia made for us!

Have you seen the movie National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation? We all made our fake IDs as Nick Pappagiorgio.

Mia wasn't part of the party. She stayed with Olivia (babysitter and cake maker). But she helped clean up the next day and helped daddy open his presents. Thanks everyone for helping make Joey's 30th birthday one he will never forget!
