After a long hiatus, it is time to return to Cleo's blog. The little person she has become amazes us daily, and we hope to share Cleo vignettes on a more regular basis. 


Christmas Eve at the Rapier Home
Cleo really dislikes the paparazzi. She at least let Daddy (Markie) get a couple of shots.


The Christmas nerds at your service.


Cute cousins. Will is so sweet and patient with Cleo.


Christmas Day: let the present frenzy begin!!

Here is a link to the journal of Mariano Friginal. He is a local photographer and we had a "15" minute urban session with him on Saturday. He posted a few of the shots on his site. Just scroll down to the 12/14 date -- under the Romeros (sorry, Markie). Wish he had been around when we got married.

Cutie Cuterson

Mommy's favorite . . . Daddy took this picture.

Heehee! I was having fun with Mom. Look at my new teeth!

A-ha! I see you!

There are more photos . . . Check back in a couple days . . .

I love my Daddy. . .



Mommas and Daddy did a special photo shoot of me last Sunday morning. Mom wanted the morning sunlight. . . Of course, I wanted to play and check things out, but I at least let them get some good shots.


Ah, one last stop before we headed home. This is Sunday, and we are in Union Square. We look a little weary. It was a fun family trip. Can't wait for the next one!

That's me lookin' all cute in my play yard. You cannot see anything out the window because of the fog.

This is us that afternoon after we walked from Whole Foods to Japantown; over to and up Fillmore; then down to Union Street; back up the steep incline on Fillmore and over to Japantown, then to the hotel. . . Uh, Mom's hair did not like the weather. She looks like a '50's chick.

Here I am all ready to go out. It was about 50 degrees cooler in the City than at home! It was pretty foggy all day on Saturday.

Mid-Summer 2008

So, Mom had this totally girly pedi party at Polished (Auntie Steph's place). Of course, I went. And, while Mom and her girls were having fun and sipping champagne, Auntie Stephanie gave me my own pedi. Love it!

Another lazy Sunday morning. I love those days.

Okay, so this is my "play pen." I am super crawling, cruising around the furniture and into everything.

Heehee! I am definitely my mother's daughter. That is a fourth generation booty right there.

Check me out!

July 2008

I look so innocent . . .

Momma and I playing around on a weeknight evening. Superstars!

I snuck in a picture of Mama on her 34th birthday. That's old, but she says it's not as old as Daddy. ; ) That was a fun day. We went to Le Parisien for breakfast. Hung out at home. Mom and I met up with Auntie Becs. Then Daddy and I took Mom out to dinner. There was another baby at the restaurant. He kept yelling and I heard him. So, I yelled back. Ha!

Oh, this is on July 5. We went to Morro Bay and then to SLO. Good times . . .

Moms and I a little over-sunned and windblown. . .

I was having a great time. I even ate a few fistfuls of sand. Hmph! Pretty good. . .



Ah, the beach! Love it! That's me and Dad. There's Morro Rock in the distance. . .


Dad and I in "downtown" Cayucos -- among the crazy fun and yummy food.

Letting Mom take a picture or two.

Getting ready at the beach house in Cayucos. We are headed down to all the hoopla.

First Swim


All done for the day. My cous', Em, was chilling with me.

Me post swim. I was a little tired.

I know what I am doing.

My first time in the pool!! I absolutely love the water. Mom let me splash around . . .

June 2008


Yep, I have some teeth making an appearance, but I'm not letting ANYONE see them!

I am trying to figure out how this sippy-cup thing-y works. It makes a great toy!

Dad's first official Father's Day. Isn't he cute sitting there with his daddy?

This is me and Dad on a lazy Sunday morning. We were trying to see what Mom was doing.

May Flower

Nice quiet time at home with Mom and Dad. I like rolling around. . .

Mmm-mmm good. I love sweet potatoes. Can't you tell? 

These are some more pics Dad took of me. I think he sent one or two to Mom at work.

Mommy says I look "yummy" in this picture.

Hi Mommy!!

I can sit on my own for a long time now, at least an hour at a time. Mommy and Daddy can't believe how big I'm getting.

These two are from today, 13 May. Mommy likes getting these pictures since she misses me during the day. Daddy and I miss her, too.

Daddy has been taking pictures of me to send to Mommy while she's at work. Here's the first one from 12 May. I'm drooling a lot right now. :)
