it's another girl!

finally @ 6 1/2 months pregnant (26 weeks) we were able to do our first ultra sound! (due to insurance issues, of course!) clint and i guessed right, we are having another girl! it runs in the family to have more girls than boys so we weren't surprised. but we are so excited, and i'm glad i can keep going with my everything pink themes! poor clint totally out numbered!

we are torn between two names: Cierra or Che (shay) (I'm sticking with the C names). so please cast a vost on the side of this page, i need help...but i think i am leaning towards Cierra!!!

zoo & berries & friends

a few things we have been up to in the last few weeks since we moved to sherwood...berry picking, hitting up the zoo, & hanging with new friends joel & brittany scarioni & their daughter maggie, just 6 months older than carly...brittany is 6 weeks ahead in her pregnancy than me & is delivering with the same midwife as me...we met at the park a month ago and hit it off instantly, so did the girls!
it has been terribly hot if you can believe it in oregon and we were dying at the zoo! as you can tell from carly's expressions!

ps carly only cares about the elephants at the zoo!

first haircut!

my poor little girl, takes after her mom and has little to no hair! we really don't expect much until 3 years old...but, she got her first haircut ever a couple of weeks ago! i would have loved to save a lock of it, but there just wasn't enough hair even for that! sad! believe it or not she did need a trim though. so she got a GOOD one from roshan my hairdresser and it was just so cute!

my goal!

i saw these french macaroons by paulette in instyle magazine. they're sold in LA, and i decided that i must learn how to make these, just like this! well, or close to it!
i have already made 4 batches, messed up a lot but i am trying again tonight. kinda of a crazy project, but how cool it would be to be able to make something that looks this good! its not easy! unless someone out there already does it, you have to let me know!
