Ashley+Brad's Wedding

We spent the past week in Los Angeles for Brad & Ashley's (Rustin's sister) wedding.  We loaded up the car with everything we could possibly need for a 10-week-old baby and took a road trip.  Lucca was perfect in the car!  We stopped every couple of hours to feed/change her and she didn't seem to mind the long drive one bit.  Thank GOD.  The wedding was beautiful!  We called Lucca the "honorary flower girl".  It was so fun to spend time with the entire Chao family.  Rustin's mom rented out an amazing home in Manhattan Beach for us all to stay together.  We hit up a few of our old stomping grounds, including our favorite breakfast spot, Uncle Bill's Pancake House (twice!).  Such great memories!!  




A huuuge thanks to my parents who helped out with Lucca during all the wedding festivities (not that they mind holding Lucca!)  But I don't know what we would have done otherwise since Rustin and I were both in the wedding :)
All partied out by the end of the night!  
A big highlight of the trip was "Mema" meeting baby Lucca for the first time!  Lucca's middle name Elizabeth was chosen to honor Mema, who is such a special part of Rustin's life.  Mema got Lucca to smile quite a bit and assured us that Lucca is a "very intelligent girl" ...

Bjorn Bouncer, I love you.

The Bjorn bouncer is Lucca's newest fave (thanks Dana!).  She spends about 15 minutes in here spinning the flowers and little guy in the middle, which gives mama 15 minutes of hands free time!!   



Feet are cool!

Lucca recently found her feet and she thinks they are pretty cool!

1st Mother's Day

We spent Mother's Day weekend in Seattle with my sister and my parents.  So fun to have all the moms and babies together for our first mother's day!  We had a delicious brunch at Chambers Bay Country Club and all the babies were good the whole time....which is always a plus :)  Everyone thinks these babies are triplets!
