Life has been pretty busy around our house lately, but I thought I’d take a break from the more serious topics I’ve been blogging about lately to give you a pictorial update (all taken with the point & shoot).
We had Grandma (my mom) out for a visit in April. I was having camera burnout and, thus, didn’t take many pics, but here are a couple.
And here are my movie stars:
Our family on 4/21/07. Check out Jody’s new specs.:
And Julian, just being cute:
Ava with Jody on “Take Your Daughter to Work Day” – 4/26/07. Jody was told by one of his coworkers that they took an informal poll and Ava was the cutest kid there that day. ;) :
Here’s Ava with her dear friend “Roger” the worm. She named him herself. I had no idea a girl could become so attached to a worm over the span of about 15 minutes. She was carrying it everywhere, then putting it back in the dirt, then getting it back out, then putting it back, getting it out, etc. Then the crisis happened. She dropped Roger in a crack in our steps and thought she couldn’t get him out. I had stepped into the house because Julian woke up and I was just picking him up when I heard her start crying, “Roger!” I thought one of the dogs ate him. I hurried outside to find that he had fallen in the crack and I was easily able to get him out and give him back to a very thankful and relieved little girl. What a heart that kid has.
My cutiepies playing together on the floor 4/29/07:
This is what happens when mommy tries to go out for a couple hours to help with a fund-raiser for our AP group. Ava falls asleep on the couch. Why can she do this for daddy, but not for mommy? In all fairness Julian had a very hard time with my being gone, so Jody didn’t have an easy night. I ended up leaving after being there for an hour to come home. By then, both kids were asleep. Isn’t that always the way?
Julian’s first time in the grass – and he liked it! 5/2/07 He’s sitting up on his own kind of well these days. He still topples over occasionally, but it hasn’t upset him yet.
We’ve been spending a lot of time outside, either in our yard or at the park lately. It’s been great and definitely helps break up the monotony of the day. Here are the kids having fun together outside:
Yep, life is pretty good. :)
