Judah, practising his Blue Steel look....

As most of you know some of our dearest friends: James & Elizabeth along with Trey & Michelle Nemeth have opened Wonderland, a children's boutique.... Elizabeth was sweet enough to ask Judah to be one of the baby models. (He was such a diva that day too... he kept asking for bottled Evian and organic bananas!) Here are a couple of my favorites. In case you're wondering who the tattooed man holding Judah is: that's his Uncle James. These were taken by Liz Duren (

Family Picture

It's that time of year again... family pictures for my parents Christmas card.... let me just tell you... it's almost impossible to get a family of 10 to all look at the camera at the same time, much less everyone looking happy and having a normal smile. Not to mention, you just pray that you don't look like you weigh 800 lbs (next year I'm wearing a Santa suit, that should really cover up all the chubb chubb). Anyways, We did get a few pics and I wanted to share....

At work.... Criminal Intelligence Unit hard at work! What what...

Judah & I wore our colors at the Gangsta Party!

I eat real food now. I'm currently eating prunes and really like the food ALL over my face. Now someone better offer me a role as Homey the Clown!

I grow. And grow and grow.

Almost 4 months old.....
Pretty soon he won't even stay still for a kiss from Mama.

Mr. Bumbo

At a month and a half Judah loved sitting in the bumbo. He had a funny little look on his face, like he was proud of being able to sit on his "own".

How a baby changes!

Judah would smile and smile, when babies are not supposed to smile.. they attribute it to gas... but I think when you're born with super powers you can do things like Smile early!
At 4 weeks old Judah was already rolling over. I'm not sure if it's because he was just coordinated at a young age, but more so because he Hated being on his stomach and was determined to change his situation!
Judah has mischief in his eyes and everyday does something new! He's our little monkey.
Judah 2 days old!
We found out we were having a baby and I think we walked around with smiles on our faces for months. Judah was a week late (I thought I was going to go insane!) but worth the wait. After 52 hours (yes, 52!!!) hours of labor, going to the hospital twice and being turned back, Judah was finally born at 9 am sunday morning: 8lbs 10oz., 21 inches long. Judah explained he was so late because he was practising his martial arts skeelz incase he had to drop kick anyone that tried to slap him when he came out! Judah was so alert and strong even from day one. Judah was a spitting image of Courtney's baby pictures for about the first month.

In the beginning... God joined.... the Soler's.....

We got married on December 16, 2005. Everything about the day was blessed and Perfect. We had the "rock star" wedding of our dreams. All of our friends and family are so awesome and helped so much to make our day amazing!
Things we'll never forget:
1. Setting up winter wonderland the day of the wedding at the reception site at JI County Park
2. Brand spanking new Chuck Taylors: EVERYWHERE!
3. A metal version of here comes the bride thanks to some Real rockstars, Ryan, Ryan and Jackie.
4. Beautiful Bridesmaids in some fishnets!
5. Guillermo saying Courtney's lines.
6. A Very inappropriate get-a-way car.
I could go on and on... but I won't.... last but not least....
7. Ivan's toast!
