School Bus for Sophie

Sophie started her new preschool last week, and today, the bus came to pick her up for the first time. Sophie was beyond excited to ride it.

Climbing Aboard

"I can do my buckle all by myself."


It was a little harder (for one of us) than I thought it would be.

Sammy Boy is Sick

My poor baby boy is sick. He's been throwing up since 9:00 last night, and doesn't have much of an appetite at all. Of course, he's still my same happy Sam. He can puke and squeal in the same breath.

I noticed that it's been a while since he's had a wet diaper, so I set him on the floor of the office to do some internet research on the symptoms of dehydration. One of the signs that your baby is seriously dehydrated is having hands and feet that feel cold and look splotchy. I looked down at Sam to examine his feet and this is what I saw:

I continued reading, but the article didn't mention anything about excessive blueness around the fingers and mouth. I think I need to do some more research.

It's Almost Pool Season

The pool is blue and the weather hit 90 for the first time this year yesterday. The kids decided to give swimming a try. They both absolutely loved it.

Daytime pool season is short around these parts. Soon it'll be too hot (yes - too hot to swim!) and we'll only be able to head out in the early morning or after sundown.

And have I mentioned lately how much I love having this kid around?

Cause I do. He's such a joy! He's always just a pleasure to be around. I'm a lucky mama.

Easter Egg Hunts

Sophie enjoyed hunting Easter eggs at both sets of grandparents' houses yesterday. She was very excited to see what the "Easter Wabbit" brought her.

The boys had fun too.

And, here's Sam in his Easter outfit.
Cute scrunchy-faced kid.
