Over the river and through the woods

To Grandma and Grandpa's house we go! While Jacob was taking the WREBs (dental licensure exam) Matea and I headed to the Tri-Citites.

we played with cousins

Visited the great grandparents- My moms side

my Dad's side

Played some more with cousins

Went on walks around the lake

Look at that face!

Snuggeled with grandpa

Attened her cousins first dance recital (she even got to wear a tutu too)

Lovely ballerinas

It was sad to leave but we really missed Jacob and couldn't wait to get back

See ya in a couple of weeks for Jacob's graduation

UOP"S 2011 Crawfish Boil

Jacob and I aren't huge fans of craw fish but we figured it was our last year to attend UOP's craw fish boil. Matea seemed pretty interested in the little crustaceans.

Rub a Dub Dub

Matea loves bath time and I love the smell of a clean baby

Take me out to the ball game!

On Wednesday Matea attended her first baseball game! She was pretty cute decked out in her Giants gear.

She was a little fussy at the beginning but then calmed down. I blame it on the fact the the Giants were losing the first few innings.

In the end the Giants pulled out a win against the diamondbacks.

Go Giants! Torture never felt so good!


On Tuesday Jacob got inducted into the Tau Kappa Omega honor society. This means he is in the top 30% of his class. When they invite you into the honor society they pull a prank. Jacob got pulled into one of his teachers offices and was given a letter from a patient of his who was very upset with the service Jacob was giving him. After making him sweat for a few minutes they let him in on the joke.

It was a great induction ceremony at the War Memorial building. When they get inducted a fellow student who is already in the honor society shares a little bit about the inductee. Jacob's friend Eryn was the one to present Jacob into the group. Eryn and I teased him by saying I had told her an embarrassing story about Jacob and she was going to tell everyone. He was greatly relieved when this didn't happen.

Jacob is pretty amazing. He was ADEA chapter president his 2nd year , has been involved with ASB, has gone on two dental mission trips, set up an unofficial UOP soccer team (that won the championship one year) and participates in the Future Educators group. He does all this while still being in the top 30% and being a great dad/husbnad.

Jacob is a TKO, total knock-out (yeah i know i'm cheesy)

First Mothers Day as a Mom

What a great day. Jacob took care of all the night feedings then woke me up with waffles, yum! He even bought me some beautiful flowers. He's such a great husband that he changed all the poopy diapers and cleaned the house too! I sure love him.

One of my favorite meals is chicken parmesan and in the 4+ years we've been married Jacob has perfected his recipe.

Jacob also made this slideshow for me to say I'm a great mom. Made me cry. I love my husband and baby girl soooo much. My life has definitely changed in the past 6 months and I love it.

I'd also like to say thank you to my mom for all she's done for me. Thanks for the great role model of what  a mom is. And last but not least, thank you Jacob's mom, Tara, for raising such an amazing son.

On a side note- is it Mothers or Mother's Day? Both work, hmm.

Family Photos

On Saturday we had family photos taken by our friend Alex. I wanted some famly pics of us in San Francisco before we move in June. I think they turned out pretty dang good. Thanks Alex!

Now I have to decide which ones to frame.
