Due to an incredibly generous home teacher of my parents, we are headed to Oceanside, CA very soon, and we're excited! (Let's hope my strep clears up by then) The last time we went to San Diego/the beach, etc. we were traveling with 2 under 2, which was another adventure entirely! I couldn't resist putting up a few pics I looked up of that trip. 70 degrees, here we come!

Missing Nolan

It is getting very hard to think of my baby boy without thinking of his brothers at the age he would be. He would be 17 weeks old tomorrow, and I just love that age, where they are all smiles and learning to get around and sit up. It has been a long time since I had a little one- E is almost 4 now and it is just so different. It is hard to try not to live in the past when I am supposed to be raising a little baby. I looked up a picture of each one at around this age.

At this age, M was about 25" and 16.5 lbs. He could stand up when he was leaning on something and could sit and scoot on his belly. He had started to say "ma ma" when he was sad or hungry. Here he is standing in his chair:

Here is E at the same age. He was 20 lbs. by this age and 26" tall. He could roll all around and sit up. He was SO strong and big, it was hard to just hold onto him sometimes. He was smiley and fun and so silly.

Happy Groundhog Day!

The great groundhog found our new house, I guess he's a smart little animal. The boys were very excited about their new ant farm and their Lego Star Wars Wii game. (can you tell who the boring, educational parent is?) Not bad for a little rodent.

Checking out the porch to see if he'd come.

What is it Dad?

He knew what this one was!

Here is a link to last groundhog's day. I know, this is weird, but we're supposed to carry on family traditions, right? And DH will carry on any excuse to go to a toy store.
