Sunday Dinner September 4th
Pretty much every Sunday we host what has become known as “Sunday Family Dinner.” It is not only family, it is whoever shows up! On this particular Sunday we ended up with a huge group.
Layla and Nanny were goofing off in her play house tent!
Layla and “Little” Joey, the next door neighbor’s nephew, enjoyed some popcorn and a movie at the end of the night!
Labor Day & Layla’s First Slip & Slide Experience September 5th
The next morning was Labor Day and “Little” Joey spent the night at Aunt Diane and Uncle Todd’s next door. They came over and told us the slip and slide was all set up and ready in the back yard! This was Layla’s first Slip and Slide experience and it was so funny to watch! She just could not grasp that she needed to run, dive onto her belly, and slide. The two of them spent more time in the warm outdoor shower than they did on the Slip n’ Slide!
“Little” Joey showing her how it’s done!
She ran on it,
slid down on her knees,
on all fours,
on her back side,
and finally with a good running start… ( notice Joey running for the hot shower, they both spent more time in the shower between each turn down the slide than they did on the actual slide!)
figured out how to slide down on her belly!
There was no stopping her!
Gotta love that Slip and Slide smile!
They decided they were done! All bundled up in their towels.
Going to Preschool with Nonna September 6th
Before UCSD classes started and Donna had to be at work every week day, she spent a morning with us. Nonna met us at swimming lessons and got to see how much Layla has progressed in her swimming skills since she last came to watch. Then we took her to gymnastics so she could watch Layla there, next we went to Beach Break for lunch and finally Nonna got to come to preschool with Layla, see her classroom and watch her play and learn for a while! It was fun showing Nonna what a busy Tuesday is all about in Layla’s little world!
Meeting Baby Avery Jayne September 7th
Layla and I went up to Temecula to meet beautiful Baby Avery Jane, Melissa and Dave’s new baby girl! Layla was in love and just wanted to hold her kiss her sweetly! It made me tear up knowing what an amazing big sister Layla will soon be!

Painting Layla’s New “Big Girl” Room
Layla moved out of her pink room with the wainscoting and into the larger front bedroom. She decided she wanted it pink and yellow. Here are some pictures of Guy painting her pretty pink walls and converting her toddler bed into her big girl full sized bed!
