First Birthday Party!!

We just had a great day celebrating Izzie's first birthday. Thanks to everyone who came to help us enjoy the day! We had a great day at Lindsay Gardens are some highlights...

The birthday girl in her awesome outfit. Her favorite toy was the water cooler and the ice.

So excited to see James again (also newly one year old)

It was fun for the mommies to catch up too!

They had fun together around hanging around the water cooler.

With Grandma Connie...

...and with Great-Grandma Karen.

Playing with the pinata before it was demolished.

With her cake.

She started off timid and proper with her piece...

...then had a little more...

...she especially loved the ice cream, which was hard to pick up...

...then she really enjoyed it at the end.

Isabel cleaned up and then started to open the loads of present (thanks to everyone!)

Very tired from the long day, but a very happy, lucky and well loved little one year old!!!

Stanford Girl at the State Fair

So it was almost 1 year ago that I went to the State Fair, walked around for 5 hours, and put myself into labor! We welcomed Izzie a few hours later! This year we went back to the fair with Isabel - she loved it. She was also geared in her Stanford gear (so she could watch them beat UCLA), and she wore some cute red shoes...

Visiting the goats...

the cows (she would say "mooo")...

...and the pigs.

Then she enjoyed some chocolate covered banana.

Surprise trip to California

We just returned from a great trip to Oxnard to see Franz's family. It was a surprise - actually when we got there Franz's sister Ashley came out and got Isabel and took her into the house and said that it was a friend's baby who looked just like Isabel...she believed it until we came in, it was pretty funny. A few things Isabel started doing - dancing for a few seconds (bouncing and shaking her head) with music, and walking just holding onto one hand...she will be there soon. Anyway, we had lots of good food and it was fun to see is a recap:

We finally got to meet Isabel's second cousin Cameron (Cami). They weren't too sure what to think of each other.

Her favorite game - the tupperware cabinet. Luckily she still hasn't found it at our house.

Bathtime at Grandma's

Hanging out with dad.

Back to the tupperware....

I love this picture -she loves her Grandpa Javier.

And of course she loved all the attention from Grandma Esther!!
