As of late...

Saturday was a fun day. We rode the TRAX to Gardner Village, which is decked out with fun Halloween/Fall decor. Isla enjoyed watching the scenery pass by the train windows.

We also stopped by model home that I've been eyeing on my walks around the lake. It was A-MAZING. I'm going to find some way to make it mine in the future...

This weekend we started sleep training Isla--the whole crying it out method. After multiple nights of very little sleep and some advice from other moms, I was more than ready! It was hard and still is, but she's adapting to it really well and last night I got more sleep than I have in months, so it's here to stay! And, even though she cries herself to sleep, she still wakes up happy. Yay!

California knows how to party.

Our trip to California in a nutshell: beach, shopping, food. Can't beat that. Here's some documentation.

Date at Cirque du Soleil in LA, thanks Dana & Beth for watching the munchkin! PS, yes I really am that pale. Very sad.

Isla enjoying the comfy bed at the Marriot in San Diego.

No pictures, please. LA has turned her into a diva!

Room service at the Marriott, YUM.

She is two things in this picture: chubby & very excited to be feeling the sand at the beach.

Oh, that face.

Mid-shopping snack--Mom's shoulder.

Love this! She is in awe of Daddy.

Relaxing after returning home! Notice the rolls on the belly & legs...I think we all gained a few pounds on our trip!

And if you have time...here's a video of Isla's first beach experience (at least her first one awake). She was just a little excited!
