Almost a walker…

Standing on his own!

MOM!!! Here I come!


He took 3-4 steps many times yesterday and today he’s started standing up out of nowhere and just standing there for up to 1 minute at a time!

Dog food??

So I’m not sure what this says about our family’s eating habits but we were heading down the cereal/breakfast foods isle at Target last night and Addyson said, “Mom, look it’s dog cereal.” I turned to see what she was pointing to in the cereal isle and this is what she was informing me was dog cereal.

Dog Cereal - according to Addyson

Needless to say my attempts and explaining that that was in fact NOT dog food or dog cereal were null & void to her ears.

Garage Sale Prep

Bookworm in training

So I’ve decided that since staying home with the kiddos that we are going to make reading a HUGE priority in our lives. So the kids & I have gone to story-time at the library over the last few weeks & each week we get at least 5 new books. This past week we read the following:

Make Way for Ducklings

Olivia forms a band

Library Mouse

Max's Bunny Business

Angelina, Star of the Show

Arthur's Mystery Envelope

Wizard of Oz...we read the "Illustrated Classics" version with pictures but we read the WHOLE big book!

Happy Birthday Charis Galanos!!

Happy Birthday Charis!!

More summer fun

I LOVE that our new house (almost a year old) is so close (3/4 mile walk) to an elementary school with 2 playgrounds. Here are some pics of our “big” boy playing…our BIG girl is too fast to catch in a picture πŸ™‚
