A Year of Ofi!

12 Months
The muffin is almost 2 but things have been busy over here and blogging hasn't been on my radar. Here is my angel in a suit(!) on his first birthday. He was a ring bearer that day to celebrate the occasion (as well as my cousin's wedding) and enjoyed cake pops and dancing. Our little boy is truly the light of our lives. His little happy face makes our day every day. Here's to the first year with our first born. We love you to pieces Ofi! XOXOXOXO

12 Months of my Love! 

His First Birthday Party

9, 10 and 11 Months

Well I waited long enough to post these didn't I. My little man is just 17 days away from his first birthday! There has been so much growing going on that it's hard to keep track! When Ofilito hit 11 months he had 7 teeth with an eighth about to pop through any day, started talking (Mama was his first word thank you very much), gives kisses (highlight of my days), walks with ease when holding on to furniture or hands, eats EVERYTHING that is offered to him (and things like dirt and sand if I'm not careful) and waves hello and goodbye. His personality has started to shine and my guy is a determined little rascal who likes to get into everything and anything. Unfortunately he doesn't understand the word "No" yet but nobody's perfect. 
While this should go on next months post I have to tell you now...last week my baby started WALKING! So proud! Ofilito you are the best thing ever and I love you more and more every single day! Happy last month as a baby muffin!

Casa de Fruta

Our little fam on the little train
Growing up, my parents took my brother and me to a lot of fun spots in the Bay Area. I had happy memories associated with those places and as I got older, I went back to them with friends or boyfriends hoping to again have a great time. Sometimes this worked (An alcohol fueled night at the Brookdale Lodge with my girls was more memorable than the family trip), and sometimes it didn't (The pumpkin patch in my twenties was kind of boring), reason being some places are really best enjoyed with a kid. Now that I have a family of my own, I have a list of destinations from my childhood I want to visit to recreate happy memories. One of those places was Casa de Fruta, so when my parents suggested we go to this roadside stop on our way back from Carmel, just like I did as a child, I was on board with my camera ready.  Little Ofilio may have been too young to enjoy everything this spot has to offer but the photos alone got me more than excited for whatever our next family outing may be. Any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

Months 7 & 8

Month 7 
Month 8
Hard to believe but 2/3 of my muffin's first year are in the record books. He now has two adorable little teeth, crawls all over the place, sits unassisted in shopping carts and high chairs, eats real food (of the baby jar variety), loves the swing, had croup and his first fever :( and pulls himself up on anything that he can reach. This means that baby proofing is a must, as is constant supervision, because this little guy gets into everything! It's been so fun and honestly amazing to see him go from a baby to the start of a little boy. I can't wait until we can show him more things and experience this world through his fresh eyes. Happy 8 months Ofilito!!! Love you, love you, love you!!!
Side Note-These pictures are increasingly harder to take because he doesn't want to sit still:)
