Some Manly Stuff

Demitri and my dad are BFF's. They love to do boy things together like play with tools and dig and talk about things that I don't understand. My dad has really been a wonderful support for Demitri since Joe has left and I will never be able to thank him enough. Demitri LOVES construction. Loves does not really explain his obsession with all things construction. He has a DVD about a construction site and he knows most of the names of the trucks and he just LOVES trucks and dirt and rocks. There is a new Home Depot being built not too far from us. My dad has been taking D to the site every Saturday to monitor the progress. The second picture is them looking in at the Home Depot. That day a digger drove over to them and lifted the bucket with rocks in it and waved to them. The third picture is D showing me what happened when he got home that day. D is still talking about it. D treasures his time with Pa. Thanks Pa! We love you.

Demitri and the "Eazy Bunny"

Demitri was very excited to see the Easter Bunny or as he calls him the Eazy Bunny. He had a bunch of goodies to show the bunny including a Santa ornament , a backhoe and last years picture. I dont know what happened, he was smiling until the moment he sat on the seat.

Haircut #2= Success

The haircut went much smoother this time. Demitri remember where we were going. He remembered the cool train set and he remembered Jessica, who is so good with him and who I really like. I also think she does a good job on his hair. He cried a little bit but we brought his own DVD from home so he watched his construction dvd and was happy. He actually stayed in the firetruck this time.

900 Days Old

We did not do anything special like somebody (Jess) I know but I tried to take a picture at the exact time of his birth (7:37pm) and I missed it by 5 minutes. He was enjoying a late night snack of turkey and cheese.

Wish Us Luck

We are going in for haircut #2 tomorrow. The last one was a disaster, D cried the whole time. Fingers crossed that tomorrow is smoother. Will update with pics afterwards.

Word Cloud

Thanks Margaret for this cute idea. I had this word cloud made from the most common words in my blog at

Playing in the Jungle

Demitri has named the patch of dirt and trees in the backyard his jungle. He likes to spend as much time as possible digging in his jungle. D requested the gloves because he does not like to get his hands dirty.
The man in the second pic is Uncle Jeff (Joe's bro).

OMG! Too embarrassing.

I can't bring myself to write what he is describing here. If you want to know just message me and I will tell you the story.

Demitri Teaches Firetruck To Drive

They really do go everywhere together.

Demitri's 1st Shot Behind The Lens

D decided that he wanted a turn at taking the pictures. After so many months at behind the one in front of the lens he decided that he wanted to be the one in control. I think that he did a pretty good job for his first try.

Gratitiude Week 3: Musicals

My mom took me to see Wicked for my birthday. I have always loved musicals and this was no exception. Wicked tells the story of Elpheba, the future Wicked Witch of the West and her relationship Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. The story will make you laugh, cry and leave you wanting to see it again. It is playing indefinitely here in LA so if you get a chance you should go and see it.
