17 months old

Curtis James is 17 months old! How did it happen? He's getting so big so fast!
He is so amazing - he learns something new every day. He says lots of words now - Daddy(probably his favorite word), bunny, kitty, moon(oooon!), mommy(if I'm lucky), Taco, just to name a few.
But the word he's been using with the most gusto is "NO" with a shake of his head. I try to answer with "Yes!" and a nod and he humors me with a "esh!" But more and more when we ask him to do something it's "no". He's also learned to stomp his feet and throw(flail) himself on the ground in protest. Fun times!
But it's so fun to see him develop and explore his world and watch his personality come out. He is still the SWEETEST boy! And he is learning to give kisses which melts my heart every time. Even if they are snotty and slobbery.

Ahhh... Mexico!

We made it home from Mexico - all of us with a few more freckles but luckily no bad sunburns. It was beautiful and relaxing! We had such a great time. We mostly hung around the pool and enjoyed doing nothing. It was great to get to re-connect with our old pals Albert and Melissa! Here we are at the Hotel California in Todos Santos where we had really yummy chili rellenos and one strong margarita!
Curtis took to the water like a duck takes to ...well, water! He loved it.

At the beach in Cabo - the water was so pretty and clear!

I finally got my tequila sunrise on the last day :)

Curtis and his dad in the ocean. Uncle Albert swimming to the pelicans.

He really did like the pool.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Is this what we're in for the entire plane ride???Curtis has his passport and we're all ready to go to Mexico for Thanksgiving. I hope he is happier than he is in this picture on our flight. We have an arsenal of toys and goodies to keep him occupied. Wish us luck!

Since we will be gone for about a week - here's some pictures of what the boy has been up to lately. We all had a really good time with the Truckee Testers. Curtis thinks his cousins Ross and Alan are pretty much the coolest things ever. He had a lot of fun trying to keep up with them.

We made a trip to Train Town with Cousin Alan and Uncle Dan. Curtis liked the train ride - except going through the tunnels.

Curtis helping his mom sell her wares at the craft fair last weekend.

Trying to stuff as many Cina-Bunnies as he can into his mouth.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!!

Happy Halloween ... Ha Ha Ha!

Our little salty sailor had a great halloween!

He didn't stand still all night long. And he didn't even get any candy.

On our way to trick or treat with Hannah and Leo and Kevin and Katie.

Hannah scored on the candy! But she could have used more Skittles.

Curtis and Leo playing.

The Hamburgler and curtis out trick or treating.

Where's that good boy?

Waahhhh!! We've missed you.

Curtis has been checking for updates on the good boy blog - but alas, there has been nothing. On our Mendocino vacation, we got knocked over by a wave at the beach and our camera was the unfortunate victim.

Our last picture before our camera's untimely departure.

But, we are happy to say we now have a replacement and will have more pictures up on the blog!
Yay! Just in time for halloween!

Friends and good times

We had a busy week. We went to a Giants game (they won!), met some new friends, and re-connected with some old friends.

I know I've been bad at updating the good boy blog. Blame it on my new job. Or the heat. Or just the fact that curtis is so dang cute and fun I can't find time to sit at the computer and post pictures. So, I'm sorry. I know you all are chompin' at the bit to get a little cute boy fix.

Curtis is walking like a maniac. He is so happy to be mobile - he walks like a pro. Luckily he hasn't caught on to running!

Here we are at Armstrong Woods on Labor Day.

At the beach to escape the heat! Curtis ate a lot of sand that day.

I just developed a roll of film that was in my camera for a long time. Here's Curtis still in my belly. I forgot how GIANT I was.

Psst... new pics

Curtis is a climber!

Auntie Rikka got Curtis to go in the famous Solvang shoe!!
