Sleeping Through the Night!

Our little girl has slept through the night the past couple nights! Yay! Last night it was 12-7 am and the night before it was 11-6 am! I wasn't going to get excited about it, but since she has done it two nights I am hoping for a pattern! Keep your fingers crossed!

On another note, we went to the jazz bar, Jimmy Mak's, with friends last night and it was thoroughly enjoyable! It was nice to sit there, with adults, and listen to some fun music.

Labor Day

For Labor Day, we took a little family trip up the Gorge. First we went to the Portland Women's Forum lookout point (random name for such a place, I know). Then we traveled up the mountain to Larch Mountain where we took a little hike to the summit, which is what you see here.

Heath had to carry both kids up the mountain because he loves to be "THE Dad".

After our little hike, we met up with my parents for dinner at the Edgefield McMenamins in Troutdale. If you have never been there, GO! It is so cool! Here Zion is picking flowers and offering rocks to anyone who would take them.

Here are some pictures of the kids with their cousins on my side:

and on Heath's side. This is little Boston Cole and Eden. He is seven weeks older than her.

She is bigger than this now. We had an appointment for he a couple weeks ago and my guess is that she is 10 1/2 pounds now. She is fun to have around and Zion is adjusting to her too.
Just a couple random thoughts:
-If you have not eaten at The Screen Door Restaurant on 24th and East Burnside, you MUST! It is my new favorite place! It is southern food, and let me tell you, it does speak to the soul!
-We found our new place during the Street of Dreams in August! :) We'll let you know when we're moving into a Pearl District Penthouse!
-I forgot how much I love pedicures!!
-Being a mom of an infant (and breastfeeding said child) IS work, but is so rewarding!
-If possible, have your children more than 14 months apart! I am managing them on my own, but they are not both always happy. ;)
-If anyone knows how I can get my "Other Blogs I Read" section back on my blog since I updated the background, please let me know! I think I just need to change the font color, but I am not sure how to do that. Help!
