It was WILD!!

We went out to the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park a couple of weeks ago just for a couple of hours, it was lots of fun. The park is huge, it's pretty spread out so we didn't get to see too much in our short visit, but I think we'll try to go back before we go home. Peter loved this play area they had, he could have stayed for hours!
The gorillas were really cool to see without any glass between us and them, just a mote!
Pete loves the Flamingos! He could also spend all day just watching them.

Bath Time

Elyse is enjoying her baths, I love this time with her she smiles and talks to me as I give her a bath. Wow, she's growing every day so much!

SD Living

We are enjoying our time here is San Diego, actually we're about to leave, but it's been a great month down here! It has been really fun to see how much Elyse has changed in the short time since we've been here. And now we have a 2 year old, wow we still can't believe we have 2 kids at times!
Here is Pete enjoying the swing at the park and a great smile from our sweet little girl. More highlights from our time down here to come...soon.

I know, I know...

Here are some pictures from the hospital. I know that she's 3 months already and I will post new pics of our cute little girl soon and some of Pete, he's 2 now! Oh, how fast life goes with little ones. Enjoy some of these pictures, Elyse was just a few minutes, hours and days old.
Still in a little bit of a shock that we had a girl! Oh this is going to be a whole new adventure!You can see that Pete wasn't too sure about his sister, or maybe he just wasn't excited about taking a picture with her. He really does love her, he gives her kisses and makes her smile. I can already see that they are going to have a sweet relationship.
Here is the first picture of our little family of four. We are enjoying our little ones, life is busy but they make us smile and we are so thankful for each of them. I promise to post more pics soon!

It's a Girl!!!

Lauren Elyse Carey
March 27th, 2009 @ 1:06pm
7 pounds 13 ounces and 20 1/4 inches long
I do realize that this is pretty old news, but I wanted to have a post with her stats! Everything went great with delivery, nothing was as bad as I had remembered with the c-section (well a few things were) but the most important thing was that she made it into the world safely. She is so beautiful and we sure are enjoying having a baby girl. Peter loves his little sis and we're just adjusting to life with 2. It is great fun! I love this picture and the little smile she has on her face, I hope it's a sign that she'll be one happy little girl. For those that don't know why we're calling her Elyse, it's for a couple of reasons, #1 it's the name we really love and wanted to name her in the first place, but we couldn't come up with a middle name that we liked and that flowed nicely. So the #2 reason is that Cliff goes by his middle name and why not have a cool connection with her father. So her name is Lauren Elyse, but we just call her Elyse!
