day 1

Summer is making its eminent arrival very apparent here lately with temps flirting with 90, roads nearly free and clear of "winter visitors", and the start of swim lessons. Today was Alex's first day back with the fabulous Miss Shelley and well, let's just say he wasn't nearly as enthusiastic about it as I was. But nevermind because by the end of the summer I can almost guarantee he'll be swimming the length of the pool, she's that good. For the next few lessons though I think I might be bringing ear plugs for poor Miss Shelley, my fellow moms, and the neighbors...

water baby

Avery loves water. The kid goes nuts the minute he hears the tub start to fill, then splashes and kicks in a state of pure euphoria until he's completely water logged. So it was no surprise when he wanted in on the splash pad action at the zoo the other day.

Although I'm not sure you really get the full extent of his excitement from the photos so here's a little video too...

It was a good thing I actually remembered an extra outfit for him!

You might be wondering where Alex was while all of this was going on. Well, he was off "monkeying" around.

back to blogging...again

That's it. I'm a blogging failure. I've fallen so behind I don't even know where to start. So I think I'll just start fresh. Wait, I've said that before? Sure I have. But you keep coming back, don't you?

Things are crazy around here. Ben has been gone a lot since Christmas. Like probably 80% a lot. I started working full time back in January and am really enjoying the job (and working from home!). Alex started an Early Preschool program which he loves and Avery is TEN MONTHS OLD which means I'm working on plans for two birthday parties in the next two months. Sigh.

Avery is funny, lovey, voracious, wiry, and dare I say a bit mischievous (I can see it in his eyes!)

Alex is vibrant, exhausting, silly, dramatic, and proving to be quite imaginative.

Stay tuned for more on these cute boys...
