"pre-4th of July" Beach Trip

We headed to Ocean City, MD for a "pre-4th of July" vacation with Grandma, Marty and his kids: Ruth & Will and Josh, Nicole & Mo. It was really great being together. Adam and Mo are a little less than 1 year apart and are so cute (and mischievious) together, as seen below:
Looking for "ghosts" in the closet
Adam is definitely a beach baby (or "big boy" now)! He LOVED playing in the sand, jumping the waves, etc. From early in the morning till late at night, he was happy as can be just hanging out on the beach (we all were)! Here are some more pics from the beach:
Here's the beach crew: Mom,Marty, Ruth, Will, Nicole, Adam, Mo & Me (minus Josh and Steven, who aren't in the photo)
We are already looking forward to going back next summer!

"All about Adam" is BACK!!!

We're baaack!!! Yes, it is true... All About Adam has returned after a very long hiatus! My goal is to get all caught up from the last 6 months in Adam's life. I will be "backtracking" and adding lots of posts that highlight the spring and summer. We took a lot of trips! One being to Birmingham to visit Bobbe, Zaide... and Zebe, the cat (pictured above). Adam really took a liking to Zebe this time... spent lots of time talking to him, petting him, and trying to sneak him into Bobbe & Zaide's house! :) Lots more to come, I promise...

in the meantime, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the moms out there... most especially to mine... the best Mom/Grandma EVER! Love you, Mom, SOOOO much!!! xoxoxo

Passover in Birmingham

We spent Passover in Birmingham with Bobbe & Zaide this week. Adam, my Passover Baby (since he was born 3 days before Passover and had a "Passover Bris") did awesome this year. I was so proud of him! He very proudly sat next to Zaide during the Seder on both nights. He took it *very seriously* and really listened to the Passover story. Well, for the first 30 minutes at least... and then he colored peacefully. :) His favorite part was "hiding the Matzoh (afikomen) from Zaide and getting 5 dollars since he couldn't find it!" - so cute. I also loved it when he said "good job, Mommy" after I read a part of the Seder. He also said "Mommy, you look very pretty in that shirt" when he saw me all dressed up. He is a charmer!!! Here are some pics from the Seder... not too many since it's apparently a faux pas to take photos at the Seder. ;) The little girl next to him is Ellie Mac (or, as Adam spells it, L E MAC), Pam's sweet granddaughter who colored with him. There were 2 great Seders filled with delicious kugels and Matzah Ball Soup (which Adam enjoyed)! :)

Matzoh Making & blueberry pankcakes for dinner!

Adam's 4th Birthday Party (in photos)!

Little Love's 4th birthday party was a couple of weeks ago and was so very fun. We had a "" theme (Adam's favorite movie) and Ms. Nichole from KinderDan.ce joined us again for dancing/obstacle course/parachute fun. We finished the party with pizza and birthday cake. We used the banquet room at the rec center across the street... a perfect location except for the 5K they were hosting that morning (Wow... is all I will say... I'm just glad I didn't pass out from stress when I wasn't allowed in to the rec center - due to the 5K - that morning. OMG!). Fortunately, the race was over by the time the party began and the rest of the party went off without a hitch... all's well that end's well, right?!? ;) The only thing missing was Grandma (who was at Aunt Hillary (to be) Bridal Shower) and Bobbe & Zaide. Marty was there to represent the grandparents! :)

Here are the goody bags... check out the label! :) Adam literally stuffed all the goody bags himself... goldfish, fruit snacks, a lollipop, sunglasses with fish on them, bubbles with a fish top, fish stamp, sticker & tattoo. I get really into the goody bags! :)

The afternoon ended with LOT of wonderful presents to open. Adam was very into his birthday cards this year and looked for his name on each card. After opening each present, he wanted to play with it... so the opening presents act took a long time! :) Immediate hits were the Magna Ti.les from Marty and the the Train re.mote from Riley. That being said, Adam LOVED all of his presents! :)

All in all, a great day. When I asked Adam what the best part of his birthday was, he replied "chasing Roshan with the balloons" and "My Nemo cake". Sounds like a successful party to me. :)

P.S. More pics from his actual birthday coming soon! :)

Adam's 4th Birthday (the actual day)! :)

Adam's 4th Birthday was celebrated in style! Adam woke up to lots of balloons and smiles. The day continued with a special celebration in Mrs. Nalika's class with friends. We concluded Adam's special day with a Carvel ice-cream cake (of course) and presents. Hard to believe our Little Love is 4!!! Here are some photos from the big day:
