Our Life in Pictures
Owen’s first pair of little chompers! The first broke through on Mother’s Day and now there’s a second. Maybe this explains all the thumb chewing, late-night grumpies, and drool-soaked shirts!
We had such fun with Maw Maw & Paw Paw. We played card games, snacked on peanuts, attempted crossword puzzles, ate loco pops and downed milk shakes, enjoyed girls outings and boys trips to the park, admired ancient photos of dad as a handsome young guy, bought books, read books, enjoyed the Museum of Life + Science (butterflies! dinosaurs!), and looked for hiding kitties.
Thanks Paw Paw & Maw Maw! Your turn to drive up here!
Spring Break ‘13 and we all piled into the car for our first road trip as a family of 5 to see Paw Paw
& Maw Maw in North Carolina. What a trip!
First stop: the Beckers in Philly!! Pizza, playing, a sleepover and little boys who stayed up too late.
Second stop: Barack’s in DC! Walking, lunch, protesters and a lesson on the First Amendment from mom.
Destination: Durham, NC! Paw Paw & Maw Maw’s house.
(We had so much fun there we’ll have to do a separate post)
After three days in NC, it was time to get back on the road…
Final pit stop: Somewhere in Maryland, where we got to stay in a hotel and do lots of things we don’t usually get to do – watch Sponge Bob Square Pants, eat chocolatey cereal and even get free soap and shampoo! Then of course a dip in the pool before getting back on the road home.
Can’t wait for the next trip!
By now, Anna is used to waiting for mom. Like her Paw Paw, she’s starting to bring a book everywhere she goes. Here she is waiting to play tennis with me and mommy.
Owen has been occasionally rolling over for a little while now but he just did it during a nap at Paw Paw & Maw Maw’s for the first time. Back to worrying and sleepless nights for Mom!
Mom & Dad make us wait until 6:45 to get up. Will’s clock turns green when it’s time. When he’s not busy going in and out of Mom & Dad’s room asking when his clock will turn green, he reads – or so it seems when he empties his shelves of his 50+ books and makes a book mountain.
What a nice morning treat.
Little brother is growing up!
And went on his first plane ride! [3/28/13, en route to cousin Pete’s wedding in Napa, more on
that fun later] Mom note: what better way to pass a 6+ hour flight with a five month old than
to take self portraits in the teeny plane bathroom? Hey, he was happy.
The bigger little brother is growing up pretty fast too. He wowed mom and dad by successfully completing his first true big boy haircut (buzzers and all and getting a spikey ‘do on request) and his first dentist visit.
Good job, boys.
Following on the heels of Dad’s b-day, we celebrated Mom’s b-day on Friday with dinner at a Japanese steak house (it was awesome but Chipotle is still better) followed by a severely undercooked cookie/cake on Saturday.
