Day 89, 3-29-12

Steamed carrots were a hit!

Day 88, 3-28-12

Lew's first time in a swing:
Lew's first time in a swing

It was impossible to get a good picture of Chuck
because he was in constant motion.
It was hard to get a good pic of Chuck because he wouldn't stop moving!

Love this.

Day 87, 3-27-12

These books claim to be indestructible. I have a feeling
Lew is going to test that claim.

Day 86, 3-26-12

Eating success! After refusing all finger foods, all purees,
and all cereals that I had offered, one of my mom friends
suggested rolling avocado in parmesan cheese to make it
easier to hold. He loved it!

Day 85, 3-25-12

I just can't decide what I love most about this picture.
Is it the fact that he put a hat on in the house? Or the
fact that his one ear was sticking out? Or his expression
as he goofed around with his brother? Or just all of it!

Day 84, 3-24-12

The three of us on the carousel.

Day 83, 3-23-12

When I woke up this morning, this is what I saw on the
monitor. Yes, my 3 year old had climbed into the crib with
the 7 month old. They were having a grand old time together.

I *think* she was surprised by her gift

Lew in his kilt with a baby faux-hawk:
Baby faux-hawk

Chuck in his kilt watching the parade:
Loving the balloons in the parade!

Day 76, 3-16-12

Today was a major milestone. Chuck learned
to pee standing up. In the big potty. So now
he goes all by himself and I don't have to worry
about cleaning out the little potty! YAY!

Day 75, 3-15-12

A couple of days late, but I did Lew's 7 month
pics today in the chair. I cannot believe my baby
is 7 months!

Day 74, 3-14-12

I am a huge fan of the Pop-A-Tot.
Lew played for a while and then
passed out. Letting me play with
Chuck and get some raking done.


Day 73, 3-13-12

The weather has been wonderfully we have been going outside.
Here is the windup....

And here is the swing...

Day 72, 3-12-12


Day 71, 3-11-12

My child does. not. sleep. Like EVER.
So eventually he gets tired enough that he
just passes out wherever he is.

Someone turned 38 today!


Day 67, 3-7-12

It warms my soul to see them playing together.


Day 66, 3-6-12

After 3 straight 5am shifts and then a day at the firehouse and another 12 hours at the exhausted Marc.


Day 65, 3-5-12

Loving the "hat" he discovered.


Day 64, 3-4-12

Lew has outgrown his infant car seat. Here he is in his new big boy seat!

Day 63, 3-3-12

Missing the point of the mesh feeder entirely.

Day 62, 3-2-12

It *may* be time to retire the Rock'N'Play. This is Lew trying to climb out of it even though he is strapped in.

Day 61, 3-1-12

Daddy is an expert at getting the non-sleeping child to sleep.

As a bonus is Chuck 4 years ago today.
