A New 'Do and a New Trick

Sam's hair got the chop. He wanted it to look "like Grace's dad", so this is what we came up with.

An Miss Mary thinks she's big. 

You can't make her stand. She has to do it on her own. But I always catch her practicing.

This Boy Turned 3

  Yep. This one.

 And just like his 2nd birthday, he loved every second of his special day.

We celebrated by taking the family to one of the big pools and just playing. Sam got some cars and some Little People and he was one happy kid.

Looking handsome.
Big sis helping with the packaging.

First glimpse.

"These are all MINE Widdow Peopow???"

 Happy boy.

Then the next day we ate cake with my family after Sunday dinner (at my parents' house while they were out of town).


We love our Sam.
We're so glad he's a part of our family.

1st Day of School 2012

It's Kindergarten time! Sophie is beyond excited. She has been counting the days on the calender since preschool let out last May. ("Mom! Only 46 more days til Kindergarten starts!")

Today was finally the big day. She got to wear her new school clothes, pack a lunch in her new lunch box, and carry her big new back pack.


We got to school, dropped her back pack off at the door, and she ran off into the sand to play, never looking back.

 Two Sophies, a little nervous before school

Lucky for you though, I stuck around for a couple more minutes to capture some photos.


See how she's grown in a year here.

No Teeth? No Problem!

 A mouth full of gums has never stopped this girl from eating whatever she wants. And this girl can eat. She ate more than her brother and sister the other day at breakfast (waffles, strawberries, and blueberries that morning).

I think never having teeth helps her cause - a classic study in opposition. She doesn't know what she's missing.
