Berkeley at 3 months . . . sorta.

A few weeks ago when Berkeley turned three months old, I decided to commemorate the event with a fashion show of her in a bunch of her "0-3 month" clothes that she was fast outgrowing. So I took pictures of her everyday that week, but am just now (at closer to 4 months) getting to posting them. But anyway, Happy Quarter-of-a-year to my lil' fashion model.

Sneak peek of The Stent Fam

I know this is only a third of you guys here (2 more people and 2 more dogs) but I just wanted to give you a tiny peek from our wonderful warm afternoon together last week! Lots more to come soon.

Betsy and Steve and the bump, now known as Charlie {Maternity}

Back in July when we were both very pregnant, I spent an afternoon with these guys, waddling around, directing Betsy where to waddle.
Since this lil' bump has caused the casa de Santos to take up residence in the East Bay, we thought we'd get some shots of all their hangout places in SF- South Park, their old rooftop, their walk to the bridge . . .

Rebecca's Bridal Shower

And speaking of showers (the wedding kind, this time), here's another one from this summer. The premise of the whole thing was a science experiment to test the compatibility of Derek and Rebecca. But really we mainly tested foods- cheeses, chocolates, honey, ice cream, root beer, cheetos, etc. We blindly ate a gourmet brand, a common brand, and the generic store brand of tons of different goodies, and then felt low-class when we found out we had chosen Hersheys over Valrhona (not me, of course). So anyway, tons of fun.
I missed Becca and Derek's wedding because Berkeley was 2 weeks late and I just didn't have the courage to take a 10-day old to L.A., but luckily I'd eaten enough cookies and Cheetos at the shower to totally make up for the plate of food I missed out on at the wedding.

My Baby Shower

A bit out of order, and not a ton of pictures to share since I was busy being the center of attention and didn't have a ton of time to take many, but here are a few shots from my wonderful baby shower back at the end of June. Courtney and Heather, with Liz and Maria, and I'm sure many others, threw me the most fabulous shower. There was lots of flowers and cupcakes and everyone made me one-of-a-kind onesies. I felt so so special!

Holly and Amber visiting from Oregon.

Jamaica is kinda like Tatanka in that she just keeps tilting her head to get cuter.

Crafts are not my mom's strong suit, but she wasn't gonna let that stop her from "making" something for her first and only grandchild. Oh no!

Can you believe how much stuff that girl got?! And she wasn't even born yet! How do people even know if they'll like her?

Berkeley looks like . . .

This is a completely silly post, but for the last two months, I find myself saying "Berkeley looks just like x" or "y", so I'm sharing some of my observations. . . .

Mostly, it has been a baby monkey I keep seeing in her.

And she's filled out quite a bit now, but in the beginning, her legs were so scrawny

Then when she started wearing cloth diapers, it turned her into a funny pear-shaped Tweedle Dee/Dum. This literally made me laugh out loud every time I picked her up for like a week straight before getting used to it.

Just the other day she had on a seriously stylin' David Brent outfit

And her pinky nail grows suspiciously faster than the rest of her nails resembling that of a certain population . . .

Anyway, clearly a very talented and multi-faceted young lady!

Family bbq

So much to catch up with on the ol' blog!
Starting with a little family BBQ that Brad and Candice hosted last month to celebrate my and Jack's birthdays. Lots of cute kids at this shin-dig, but I think Berkeley got held and cooed at more than any of them.
