Caught him with a little smile
Nate's wishing mom would leave him alone and let him nap
Uh oh, Nate's temper kicking in
Nate opened his eyes for about 30 minutes on the night of Halloween. I'm not sure if he actually noticed he was dressed as a penguin, but it looks like he knew mom and dad were up to something.

Here is a picture of Nate...he is sleeping at this very moment! He is tuckered out from his late night of drinking (milk, of course) and partying with mom.

Nate likes: Eating, peeing on mom and dad, pulling mom's hair, sucking on everything, warm baths, and staying up all night
Nate dislikes: Being made to wait to eat, having his diaper changed, and of course, sleeping at night

Hi everyone, this is Auntie Heather. I feel so lucky to be the guest blogger today to introduce you all to Baby Nate!
Nathan Cooper Lederman was born today, October 2nd at 11:51 am!!!
He weighs 6 lbs, 12 oz and is 19.25" long.
He is healthy and beautiful (though I haven't seen him yet). His new mommy and daddy are ecstatic and doing wonderfully.
Love you Dani and Mike! I can't wait to see this little fellow in real life :D

Family Style Dining and Twinkle Lights Artfully Hung by Mike & KevinMy sweet husband and fabulous BFF Haav threw me a fabulous BBQ and Bonfire for my birthday. My family (minus baby Cait who is spending the quarter in Florence..poor thing) also came into town for the weekend, which is always a nice treat. The food was awesome and I even had a small sip of wine (I swear it was a REALLY small sip). As Mike would say, there goes 10 points off Nate's SAT score. Sorry Baby Nate. Thanks to all my friends and family who made my birthday so special!!
S'mores Bar and Bonfire

Some of the other bloggers I read do this thing called Mighty Monday where they talk about all of the things they just might or might not have done. Since I happen to have time today, I am going to participate in my very own Mighty Friday (doesn't have quite the same ring to it, oh well).
I might have bought an entire double cream lemon meringue pie from Marie Callender's last night and had it for dessert and breakfast today.
I might be looking a little bit silly in my dress today because the front comes up a good two inches higher than the back due to my baby bump.
I might have bought an inflatable pool last night that I plan to beach myself in since we are STILL on the waiting list for the local swim club.
I might have opened 3+ boxes of online orders from Amazon and Target for Baby Nate last night. I might love online shopping.
I might have forgot to put on my stand-in wedding band that I borrowed from my mom since my other rings are too small for my puffy fingers. I might look like I am single and knocked up...sweet.
I might have turned our nice, neat nursery into a complete disaster zone by unwrapping all the shower presents and leaving piles of baby laundry all over the place.
I might have panicked slightly (ok, maybe a little more than slightly) when I was forced to hold ice in my hand for 90 seconds in our childbirth class last weekend to test my ability to stay calm and breathe during labor. It might have really hurt my hands. Mike might be worried about my ability to handle pain.

Thank you also to all of my family and friends who attended. You thoroughly spoiled baby Nate and I. This baby is going to have everything and then some!
Grandma and Grandpa Lederman and Mimi and Grandpa Davidson spoiled me and the baby by surprising us with the super cute stroller we wanted!!

Josh is obviously trying to scare us...but what he doesn't know is that we didn't buy a white couch (it's gray-ish, thankyouverymuch). So yes, I guess we are ready.

In the past three weeks, we went on our babymoon, I co-hosted an engagement party for baby dude's godmother and my bff (Haav), I went to Ojai on my friend Wren's bachelorette party, I was a bridesmaid in Wren's wedding in LA, we received and put together our crib and we bought a new car.
As I regularly tell Mike when he is cooking dinner, doing the dishes, cleaning the house (ok, letting the housekeeper in to clean the house), etc., I have also been growing a brain and lungs and various other complicated pregnancy tasks. No wonder I haven't had time to blog!
So without further ado...long overdue babymoon pics.
Pic of our happy hour at the bar at Madera at Rosewood in Menlo Park. I highly recommend these yummy tempura green bean things. And I felt really good about myself because I was eating vegetables for the baby!
The menu with the name of my mocktail. How perfect is that?
Gorgeous pool at the resort at Rosewood. We didn't stay here, but I would like to sometime soon. Hint Hint Mike.
Here is our lovely room service breakfast at the Four Seasons. I really love eating breakfast in my PJ's, not cooking and not doing dishes. Bliss.
The gorgeous Ritz.
And kicking back by the firepit. It was a bit chilly, but luckily I brought my uggs.

We are spending Saturday night at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay and dining at their restaurant Navio. Hopefully we will also get the chance to enjoy the fire pits and have some s'mores (another one of my favorite things - can you figure out who planned this trip?)
You too can have a babymoon, all you have to do is get morning sickness, gain lots of weight, give up alcohol and oh, have a baby.

In the words of my good friend, Chip, I hate painting. Less than 48 hours after this picture of Chip & Jenn's son, Connor, was taken at the Harmatz House in Sacramento, I spent the day painting the nursery. It was not fun, but now it's done, and if I do say so myself, I did a damn good job! The problem, though, is that now Danielle knows that I can paint, so of course she came up with 2 or 3 more projects. I had already painted Baby Dude's changing table, so I think I'm retired from painting for a little while.

One of the higlights of the trip was hanging out with Katy's three month old son, Brennan. He was one of the best babies I have ever been around. He posed for pictures, barely cried and was just all around a super sweet boy. On top of which, did I mention how totally adorable he is? My fingers are triple crossed that our little baby is as much of an angel as Baby Dude's future BFF, Baby Brennan.

I should probably apologize in advance to my friend Wren who has asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding come August. I promise, I will stop eating cookies. Ok, no I don't....
As my stomach grows I have become more and more obsessed with the scale. I have never really been that weight obsessed, but there is something fascinating (ok, who am I kidding - petrifying!) about seeing the numbers tick upward every time I weigh myself. I am getting dangerously close to a number that I have never seen before - even after my college Euro-binge. I guess that's what happens when you eat a whole bag of Mother's Animal cookies. But really, how good are they? And I thought I was never going to be able to have them again with the whole going out of business fiasco.
