Happy Friday!




Posted by Picasa

The boys and I have terrible colds - so am posting these photos to remind me of a happier week! Hugh's favorite word right now is airplane. He loves to send things flying saying "Airplane, Airplane, Airplane" or to make the space shuttle blast off. They both "helped" Mommy make fudge and cookies for Jack's teachers and the doctor's office. And couldn't help including the sweetest smile ever.

Hugh had his 15 month check up on Tuesday. Everything looked great!!!

Baby It's Cold Outside...




Posted by Picasa

It has been too cold for playing outside for an extended period, I draw the line at freezing. Above 32 we are bundled up and out walking and running and swinging. I have a hard time with the 20s, can't see the point in trying with the teens, and don't even want to think about what we're going to do when we soon hit the single digits. (Not far below 32 its really too cold to even snow, which takes a whole dimension of fun away.) But, it has been a challenge to think of enough to do inside to replace what we are usually doing outside. Yesterday I brought in the riding toys, that was a huge hit! The tight space makes good practice for backing up and steering :-).

Catching up...for real this time!






Posted by Picasa
I do mean the title - I am going to try and keep up with the posts about and pictures of the boys!! I did not mean to let time slip away from me. I've told people I kind of stopped blogging because I used facebook instead, but that's not really the reason. Its just as easy to update blogger as it is to update facebook. We just had a pretty rotten Fall last year, I could never get around how to write posts with everything that was going on. I truly dislike over sharing on the internet and it is so easy to do, I just couldn't get my head around how to post without doing it, so I did nothing. Then it seemed so daunting to catch up that I put it off! But I do like updating about the boys as best I can and I know there are some who look at this who do not use facebook :-). Above are some recent photos to start. I will try and update our web albums and write some posts on what the boys are doing now. We'll see how long it takes me!!!

Catching Up...Again!

It has been almost 3 months since I've posted, given everything that has happened since then, it feels like a lifetime! I am going to make an attempt to get caught up (It is a New Year after all!) so be on the look out for multiple posts. The boys are wonderful and growing up so much. Jack especially changes more and more each week and truly enjoyed Christmas. I'll start catching up by posting the two monthly "birthday" photos I missed for Hugh.
Hugh at 4 months, being dragged along to see the Christmas Lights at the Zoo, 20 degrees F, at night, he was not impressed!
Hugh at 3 months, smiley! During the weeks we were at Great-Grammie's. In spite of the situation, I think they both benefited from the time there. They both got to know and interact with Great-Grammie more and Jack got to play outside for all of November (never would have happened in St Louis!).
