Josie: Climber of Things

Well, we knew it wouldn’t take long when she was walking at 10 months to be climbing and causing trouble around the house. The time has arrived! The couches and kid chairs were one thing, but on May 18th, she showed us just a couple of weeks ago that she can climb up on the […]


Update: Josie

“We’re gonna have to keep our eye on this one!” No long stories for this update. Just short and sweet, like its subject. She’s smart, and cute, and cuddly. Who could ask for more? It was about this time two years ago when this little cutie-pie made her existence known to us. I can hardly […]


Update: Vivian

Oh, there is SO much to share about Vivian these days. She is doing incredibly well with her speech development and is learning so quickly these days! First, to follow up on all of her speech and social development, since my only other post about it was in January with a short update in March… […]


Update: Mac

The opening scene of the movie has WALL-E watching “Hello, Dolly!” where they are singing “Put On Your Sunday Clothes.” […]


Mother Nature… You’re Fired!

It’s been more like this… April 11th: Some of our schools farther outside of the city had a SNOW DAY! April 19th: A Winter Storm Warning delayed a weekend trip […]


April 2013 Videos

March 7, 2014 I finished some more! I don’t know why I must post them like this. Oh wait, yes I do… I hesitate to post this one, but it’s just so darn cute. I even had to look back in my calendar to find out where we had been. We were returning home from […]


Turf Tots

A mom in our ECFE class was talking about a place in Hopkins where kids can play inside and run around. I was curious, so we checked it out. SO worth the $3 per kid to get them out in this crazy winter-like spring! Take a hockey rink, set it up for indoor soccer, and […]
