July pictures

In July, my cousin, Tommy, which is Summer's favorite uncle, came to visit us. He took Summer swimming and she had so much fun. We went to have dinner at Eddie's mom's house and my Aunt and Uncle came to visit Summer and meet Baby Solana for the first time.

Ariel's Grotto at California Adventure

Since I got a 2-fer ticket when I took Summer to Disneyland on my birthday, I decided to make the most out of the trip to California Adventure and take her to Ariel's Grotto. It is a restaurant where you have your picture taken with Ariel and a bunch of other princesses come out during your meal to chat with the kids. The food looked better than it tasted but it was definitely the best meal I've ever had at the Disneyland parks.

Summer was really excited, but she got a little shy when she met the princesses. I think she was a bit overwhelmed because she barely ate anything. It was hard snapping photos and shooting videos at the same time. The best moment (which I did miss on video) was when Summer asked Cinderella where the mice were. To my surprise, Cinderella stayed completely in character and responded, "Well they're back at the castle probably making a mess of things."

Summer's 3rd Birthday Party

On Friday, May 29th, Summer celebrated her 3rd birthday at the LA Zoo with all her neighborhood friends. We had lunch at a picnic area surrounded by the sea lions, and alligator exhibits. We all had a great time! These pictures were taken by 3 cameras: mine, Eddie's and my mom's. That is why there are so many. All the shots of people eating are taken by my mom. :) Sorry, some of the pictures are a little out of order due to slightly different time settings on our cameras.

Baby Solana Finally Arrives

On April 21, 2009, we went into St. John's hospital to get induced. I was already 4 days over due. This time the delivery was very fast, easy and pain free. When we went into the hospital I was already 4 cm dilated, I first got my epidural, then the pitocin to start the contractions. I was very comfortable and didn't feel any labor pains. The anesthesiologist even gave me a button to give myself extra doses of the epidural in case I felt some pain. Two hours later, I was fully dilated. I didn't even get a chance to sleep, I was getting nervous. Then it was time to push. I only pushed for 9 minutes and baby Solana was born! Here are pictures taken from the first few days Solana was born.

Pictures on my due date

On my due date, April 17th, Eddie took these pictures of me and Summer.

Gimma's 87th Birthday

On Jan 10th, 2009 we celebrated my grandmother's 87th birthday at my mom's house in Whittier. My mom and grandma cooked a delicious vegetarian lunch.

Summer making pizza

On Jan. 30th, 2009, Summer and I made pizza from an organic pizza kit I bought from Whole Foods. It was a bit messy, but we had a lot of fun. We put mozzarella cheese and meatballs. Summer's funny, she thinks all meat is chicken and she thought the dough was play-doh.

Lora's 4th Birthday

On Jan. 9th, We went to Borami's house to celebrate Lora's 4th birthday. Summer had a lot of fun playing with all the kids and we had delicious Korean food.

Baby Lizzy's 1 month celebration

On March 15th, Dave & Helen had their new baby's 1 month celebration lunch at Todai. We were very excited to meet Baby Lizzy. She looks so much like Dave! Summer had a lot of fun playing with Samantha and she loved meeting Baby Lizzy. Towards the end, Summer took some pretty good photos with my camera.

Disneyland with Angie, Adriane & Nicky

On March 25th, I took Summer to Disneyland without Eddie and it was so wonderful that Angie (Eddie's cousin) and her two kids, Adriane (our flower girl when she was 2 yrs old) and Nicky could met us there. Angie and Adriane were so super sweet and helped me so much with Summer. Summer LOVED Adriane and had such a great time! Thanks so much Angie and Adriane!
