Mia's My Gym Birthday Party!

Mia celebrated her birthday with some of her friends at My Gym today. She had a lot of fun on the swings, riding the train, jumping on the trampoline and zooming through the air on the rocket! Thanks to all who came and helped celebrate!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

The Yamada families (Shuji & Yuji) all went to a baseball game at AT&T Park. We couldn't ask for a more perfect day - clear, blue San Francisco skies. Well, the Giants could have won and that would have made it a truly perfect day. But we had lots of fun nevertheless. And it was Mia's first trip to a baseball game!

Hawaii Preview (6/30-7/8/09)

We went to Hawaii for Mia's 1st birthday and our 2nd wedding anniversary (and snuck in a concert to see Eddie Vedder at the Hawaii Theatre). We had a fantastic time taking Mia in the ocean for the first time, in the pool for the first time, and we ate our way through the island. Here is a preview of our vacation.

A Great Family Day!

We had a great family afternoon today! We started off at City of Hope's 33rd annual Bone Marrow Transplant/Stem Cell Replacement Reunion, celebrating Dad/Grandpa's 10 year anniversary being cancer-free! It was an inspiration gathering of BMT survivors. Here's a link from last year's event.

Then we wrapped up the evening having yummy Italian food at Pizzera Mozza. Mia was deciding what she wanted and she anxiously waited for her slice when the pizza arrived. I want a piece! Shall I have a slice with egg and pancetta or the tomato, mozzarella, sausage, salami, bacon & guanciale pizza??? Someday soon Mia, it'll be your turn!

Visiting with my family, the Yamadas

Mia's aunties, uncle and cousins came down from the Bay Area to visit and check out the new house. We all had fun hanging out in the backyard on a sunny and very windy day!

Visiting My Cousins

We went up to San Francisco President's Day weekend to celebrate Kari & Evan's birthdays.

Mia showed off her "My Favorite Auntie" PJs with her favorite Auntie Kari.
Mia got to spend some quality time playing with her cousins. What is Evan doing?

Nolie and Mia hanging out.

Evan gets Mia interested in Hot Wheels. She must be a Yamada!

Mia eating solids!

Oh boy! Mia get her first taste of solid food, rice cereal. She really likes her rice cereal. Of course, solid food leads to other solids. Oh well, that's Mommy and Daddy's problem now!

My two front teeth!

To Mommy's surprise, Mia's two front teeth started poking out today. Needless to say, Mommy got a bit emotional that our baby girl is growing up...
