We love you more than you will ever know, Ms Daddy. Happy Fathers Day.

I would really love my wardrobe to be just half as stylish as my 2 year olds.

Just When You Think You Have Them Figured Out

 Liam has a sensitive heart. He's a normal kid and does normal kid things. But he has always been a bit more conscientious when it comes to... well, everything. Since he seems to think everything out and what the consequences and risks are of everything, I find he ends up taking the safe route most of the time. Having 3 boys down the street that he plays with often seem to help him take the more adventurous path more often than I think he would otherwise. It took a couple of years to get him into the pool of his own free will and without a shirt.

Once in a while, he surprises me. Might just be that he is growing up and as he has more interaction with the world, has decided that it's ok to try new things. All I know is that I saw MY boy squeal with excitement when he saw baby frogs in his best friends pool and insisted on picking up every single one of them. Normal boy behavior, right? Not for this boy. But it made me smile. I am not sure why. Could be because I was a bit afraid of trying new things growing up and started a little late in that department. Life is short and I want him to be able to enjoy it and experience it. Maybe I don't have anything to worry about. I suppose time will tell. But for now, it's nice to see him a little carefree- even if only for searching for baby frogs.

Memorial Day

Seems to be becoming a tradition to spend 3 day holidays with the whole fam up at my sister's house in Orlando. And each time we go up there, I am always surprised by how different the kids are and how much they have grown. Every time is a whole new experience. This time, Eli and Liam did a lot more imaginative play and alot more time was spent quietly in Eli's room sharing toys. But of course, the word "poop" was still repeated constantly with giggles to follow. Zoe is old enough to start interacting with Livi even though Livi insists she is still a baby. And everyone just adores Hope. The lone baby. There were so many around for so long, but these days they are becoming more of a rarity and Hope gets alot of loving because of it (oh and also because she is ridiculously cute).
