2 months and 3 weeks old...the first 100 days

We're nearing the end of my maternity leave...something which makes me sad, but I knew the day was coming. Chechi and I have had am amazing time getting to know each other and exploring the city together, meeting friends and growing together. Here are some pictures of what we have been up to... Chechi with her two godparents. Now that the date is set, preparations have begun for her big day! This was taken after her first mass service at St. Philip's, we went so I could get my birthday blessing...and because we want to start making it to church on Sundays again as much as possible. In the coming weeks Chechi is going to have another new friend, John Charles. Sarah (in the black) is due with her third on January 31, just 2 days after my birthday. Here we are at Sarah's baby shower with our friend Jessica who opened her home up for the event.

All we're missing is Julia in this picture. It's hard to believe Olivia will be 5 later this year...time flies, and I know before we know it, Chechi will be in her shoes...literally.
This is my new favorite picture of Chechi and's now my facebook profile picture.
Pretty girl is all dresses up and ready to go to a baby shower for our friend Michelle. She discovered her hands over the past few weeks and she will not take them out of her mouth. I tell her it's not becoming, but she won't listen. We'll have to work on that...'s Chechi in a tub!!!

Here we are with our friend Michelle who is having a little boy in a few weeks. Chechi is surrounded by baby boys!

We helped Coco celebrate her 6__ birthday this month. After spending the day with Coco we put on our cutest ensemble and went over to her beautiful home to celebrate with family and friends.

Spending some time with Daddy on Coco's birthday. Sweet girl is all smiles these days and enjoying her time with us...when she's not hungry, cranky or sleeping.

The Coral Gables Farmer's Market also kicked-off this month. Every Saturday in front of City Hall, tents pop up with treasures and goodies and neighbors come out to enjoy the day. This is Chechi on opening Saturday.

Our friend Melissa spends her Fridays with her baby boy, Miles...on this particular Friday she invited us to come with them to Fairchild Tropical Garden. Here is Chechi napping next to this sheep sculpture. Baaaaaa
The ladies at the Island Shop said if her picture was taken holding a $100 bill, she'd always have money...naturally we believe them, so we took this picture. Don't worry, we returned the $100 to the register.
So that is what we have been up to these past 2 weeks. We are now starting my "Birthday Week" we'll be spending a lot of time with family and friends in the coming days. Pictures to come!
