Papa's Back on the 'Net

Nohli loves the new couch.  I've been impressed with the way spit-up seems to bounce right off the couch.  Good looks scotch guard!

Pucci has been acting a little weird lately.  I think she is finally starting to get jealous of Nohli. She has also become kind obsessed with Nohli's car seat, every time Pucci gets in the car, she jumps in the back, and right into the car seat.

Nohli and Moms putting the Christmas tree up. We got our tree down on Atlantic and Flatbush. We decorated it with red lights and gold balls. Straight GUCCI, baby.

Early Morning bonding by the fire w POPs

Happy Holiday everybody!  We have been super busy lately.  We have so much to do in such a short amount of time.  We are already into December and it feels as tho Thanksgiving was just last week-uuuhhhh!!!!  So far its been 3 weeks since Nohli got her ears pierced.  In another week we will be able to remove her starters and put in her real earrings! WooHoo!  They seemed to have healed rather quickly w no problems what so ever.  So i would definately recommend getting your baby's ears pierced YOUNG!  Today was a rainy and windy day in the big apple.  Our lil family cruised around downtown Manhattan running errands w papa and then picking up some things for Nohli at Babies R Us.  We have gone up one more size in the seventh generation diapers.  Nohli is now a size 2!  "They grow up so quick" Yes! They sure do!!! The next couple days will be busy too.  We are getting our (long awaited) couch tomorrow, we have to get our Xmas Tree!  Not to mention our landlord who is forever renovating EVERYTHING-is having some pipe work done from within OUR apt. Soon our beautiful kitchen will be a construction zone!  I just pray all the work is done before Yerania's bday on the 23rd.  Which we will be hosting here!!!! OohyVey!!! Well my head os spinning, our baby is sleeping and Im about to have some tea!

March 12, 1926 - November 26, 2008

Grandpa died in his sleep early Wednesday morning
My mother was at his side when he passed
His impact on our family and those who had the privilege to know him will be felt forever
Our memories of him will never fade
And his love is still strong

Nohli's last picture with her Great-Grandpa.
She was very lucky to have meet him 3 times in her short life
