The PYO Pottery Party in Review

Wendy turned six a little before Thanksgiving, and to celebrate, we had a birthday party for her and some kindergarten friends at a local Paint-Your-Own Pottery place.  In years past, I have done elaborate themed parties, both at home and in rented spaces, and I was ready to take it down a notch.   The...

Six already?

Hard to believe my oldest “baby” has turned six years old! Look at how times flies. Newborn: One: Two: Three: Four: Five: and now SIX! We celebrated – first with a paint-your-own pottery party with kindergarten friends, then with a family dinner at home.   It was a wonderful celebration of a wonderful not-so-little girl....

You Say It’s Your Birthday…

It’s our birthday too!   Tis the season when the birthdays come fast and furious in our house. Daddy had his earlier this month and we celebrated by going to one of our favorite restaurants:  SweetWater Tavern.   Daddy’s most favorite-st thing on the menu is their flourless chocolate waffle dessert, so of course we ordered...

Good Thing He’s Cute

Adam has been keeping me on my toes these days.  He is so busy and so full of life.  He is constantly cracking us up with his silliness. He often runs full speed with his hands tucked into his armpits, elbows flapping like an albatross.  I have been unsuccessful in getting it captured on...

4yo Well Visit for Super Si Guy

I forgot to mention that Sam had his 4year old well visit in early September.  Had to get that appointment in before school started — needed the doc to sign off on those health forms! The 4yo visit is an exciting milestone (at our practice) because they start to treat you like a big...

Back to School

This is our first real “Back to School”, since it’s our first year with a kindergartner.    After a lovely summer, fall made it presence known – our first day of school dawned cloudy and cool, threatening showers.   With a squirmy toddler, I didn’t succeed in getting the group shot, but did get individual shots...

Oops, she did it again

Since we celebrated one of the high points of summer yesterday, it seems only fitting to share this low light today. Question  (in the words and tone of Dr. Phil): “What was she thinking?” Answer:  Bangs are in! Wendy tearfully explained that she wanted bangs, a desire she has NEVER expressed to me before. ...

Adam at the 18 Month Mark

Adam had his 18M check-up, so I guess it’s time for an update on his progress (or else I’ll never remember).  First off, the stats: Weight: 27lbs 7oz Height: 33.5″ Both stats put him around the 75th percentile.  He has always seemed “normal” in terms of his size, so that’s not surprising.   Developmentally, he...

Happy Birthday Dude

How in the world did this happen? Newborn One year Two years Three years Four I can’t believe it, but Sam is 4.   The birthday is today, but the party is Saturday, so we’ve had much back and forth about what is happening when.  When it finally sunk in that his special day was...
