Uh… a little help?

We have deep window wells on one side of our house. Sam threw the green rake (and a ball) down into one. Then he decided he wanted them back. Apparently I wasn’t offering assistance fast enough, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. I didn’t see how he got in there,...

Spring has sprung!

Today is the first official day of spring. To celebrate, Wendy & Sam decided to play a little croquet. Despite the 30mph winds, they seemed to have a good time … right up until Sam clocked himself in the head with a mallet and decided he had enough.  Here are a few pics, prior...

Sam Loves the Layered Look

I blame daddy for this one. He is always putting the kids in layered clothes – long sleeve shirt on bottom, then a short sleeve on top. Not because he thinks they will get cold, but because he thinks it’s a cool look [Edit:  Mike says the cool factor is only part of it......

Adam had his two month check-up today. He got FIVE shots, poor baby! But he was a trooper, he cried, but was quickly soothed by momma’s milk and then settled in for a 4+ hour nap. Here are the stats: Weight: 13lbs 1oz -> 75th-90th percentile Height: 25″ –> 97th percentile Head: 15.5″ (39.5cm)...

Wendy’s First Report Card

Wednesday March 12, 2008
By

I had my first parent-teacher conference today, to review Wendy’s progress in her first year of preschool.  She came home with a “report card” the day before so we could see how she had been assessed.  She received all Ms and Ps, which stands for “Mastered” or “Progressing.”  I, of course, zeroed in on...

Home Improvement?

Mike is the “project guy” in our house. I freely admit I contribute little to the effort. He’s good at it, generally knows what he’s doing, and the outcome is always positive. The same cannot be said for me. Despite, this, I decided it was time to give the nursery a makeover. We never...

Visit Daddy at Work Day

Last Friday, I took the kids in to meet Mike at work. He had fun showing them off, they had fun running amuck through the cubicles, and I had fun eating lunch at Chipotle afterwards. Note: this is not to say that I didn’t enjoy meeting Mike’s co-workers — they were very nice and...

Wendy’s Big Adventure

Wendy experienced another milestone in her young life … her first sleepover! She & Sam have spent the night with relatives, but this is the first time she spent the night at a friend’s house.  Yesterday, after preschool, I dropped her off at the Buttemeres, so she could spend the night with her friend...

I get by with a little help from my friends

Tuesday March 4, 2008

One of the reasons our transition to a party of five has gone so well is that our friends have been overwhelmingly generous in bringing us food. And since I’m not one to say no to a free meal, we have gratefully accepted *many* meals. I am blessed to be part of many great...
