Eleven Months...already!

From this...

to this...

in 11 short months! It's pretty amazing. I'm not sure if this is really baby's 'first steps' since he is doing it with the help of his wagon...but it sure is cute. In typical first-time parent fashion, we are forcing everyone to watch video of Nate walking. He is really proud of himself. Happy 11 month birthday baby Nate!!

Techie Love

Happy Monday! I really really love our Dropcam aka the camera in our playroom/living room that I can watch from my computer or iphone. I'm not much of a tech geek, but how cool is it that I can watch little Nate play in real-time all day long?! Well, my employer might not think it's as cool as I do : )

Nate's hanging with my mom (Mimi) and sister (Auntie Courtney) today. So far he has had some pancakes, shopped in Berkeley, went out to lunch and done some playing. Tough life...

Nate and Daddy

Nate and daddy are hanging out today while Nate recovers from Croup. This is how Nate feels about the new gate in his playroom. Our sweet little baby is developing more and more of an attitude. I am not in the least bit surprised. Not one teeny tiny bit.

It's time for my little baby scrufamuffin to get a haircut. His daddy is going to go crazy if I dig my heels any longer. I think Nate's scruffy hair looks precious, but hubby is traumatized by pictures of himself as a baby with long, curly hair. I will say that Nate's hair is nowhere near as long as his daddy's was!

I returned from Palm Springs this weekend (that's where I was, if you didn't guess!) to find a slightly under the weather little boy. By Sunday morning (2am to be exact), poor baby Nate was coughing something fierce. By Monday morning we found out we had a case of Croup on our hands. Luckily, Nate seems to be much better today. Poor guy.

Hubby and I (along with Bestie and her hubby) are going to see Dave Matthews Band tonight. I can NOT wait. The hot weather seems to have followed me home from Palm Springs. Even San Francisco is blissfully warm. What a perfect night for an outdoor concert. I am off to the Ferry Building (pretty much the best marketplace ever) for some French macaroons (pretty much the best cookies ever) to enjoy at the concert tonight. Try not to be too jealous! XOXO

Leaving on a jet plane...

So, San Francisco is a bit foggy right now. This is the view of the Transamerica building from my office...buried in clouds. The temp is 54 AUGUST. Now, this isn't all that unusual for San Francisco in the summer, but it sure is dreary!

I am off to a sunnier locale. Somewhere where the high today is 111 degrees (no joke!) The good news is, it drops to a balmy 99 degrees by 9pm. The next couple days will be spent in the pool...hey, it could be worse. Any guesses where am I heading? I'll give you a's not Vegas.

Hubby is off to Tahoe and Baby Nate is having a slumber party with grandma and grandpa. Looking forward to a girls weekend and then a reunion with the hubby and baby dude on Sunday. Have a great weekend. XOXO.

Family Resemblance?

Since day one, I have been hearing that Nate looks just like his daddy. Last night I came across a picture of my youngest sister (who is now 21, I know, I'm old!) and I think she looks a bit like Nate?

Prince Nate:
Princess Caitlin:

I wish I had a better baby picture of baby sis, but I had to make due with pics stolen from Facebook. Please excuse our 80's gear in the family pic - I distinctly remember the Guess jeans I was wearing had zippers up the side.

So what do you think? Did Nate get some of the Davidson family genes?

The Pioneer Woman Rocks!

I made the Pioneer Woman's Mac and Cheese a couple of days ago and it was yuuuummmy. I consider myself a bit of a Mac and Cheese connoiseur, meaning I eat large quantities at all possible opportunities. I figured since I had mastered the recipe for Kraft Mac and Cheese, it might be time to move on and test my kitchen limits. The roux was a bit scary, but I went for it and it was actually pretty darn easy. The result - sinful, cheesy, two thumbs up. It even looked like the picture from Ree's website! Now how often does that happen?!

I'm back!

Ok, so I know my blog hiatus was long. Too long. I could give you all kinds of excuses, but what it boils down to is, I have been busy! With what you ask? Enjoying our sweet little boy!

Nate is already 10+ months (almost as long as my blog hiatus, coincidence?)! So let me take a moment to recap and gush about all things Nate. Nate has SIX teeth and eats almost everything - he even chowed down on spicy mexican rice and carnitas from Tacolicious earlier this week. He started crawling last weekend during his first camping trip, though he has been doing the army crawl for quite some time. He says ma ma and da da, though never on command. He gives the cutest kisses, on demand! He loves water, swimming and the bath. Any chance he gets, he races to the bathroom at top speed to pull himself up on the bathtub.

He has also started pulling himself up on the crib. Last night after he went to bed, I took a quick peek at the monitor to ensure that he was in fact sleeping. I was thoroughly confused to find the picture not of the crib, but of his room. And to make things even more confusing, the picture was moving. WHAT?! Next thing I know, Nate's giant face has filled up the screen. He had managed to stand up, grab the camera, and was peering right into the lens. So of course, we proceeded to run back to his room laughing hysterically. I can safely say that seeing his big eyes peering into the camera was the highlight of my night.

As you can see, we are in love. And boy is it fun. I am going to try to make some time to post so that ALL of my followers (Nate's aunties and grandmas) can stay in the loop on all of the cuteness.

Happy Friday! Maybe I'll even be back Monday.... Enjoy what will hopefully be a sunny summer weekend.
