It was fun to look at these photos of last summer while there was snow on the ground here! (Back in February when I started this post, that is.) Continuing my catching up effort, I’m going to share some memories from last July. At the beginning of the month, Sam started saying “ball” and pointing… Continue reading July 2017, Sam at 13 Months Old
The day after Ari’s birthday was Father’s Day. This is a screenshot from a video I took of Ari talking about the card he made for A. I love how he drew his curly hair, green eyes, and beard! Later that day, we went to the Holgate Library, and look what we found there! I’d… Continue reading June 2017, After the Birthdays
Well, today Ari is 4 years and 5 months old, so I am officially five months behind on this blog. Sigh. Ari had been talking for a long time about wanting to have a birthday party with his friends from school, so we went ahead and invited all 20-something kids in his class, and of… Continue reading June 2017 – Ari’s Fourth Birthday!
When I picked Ari up at school one day, I think it was on Sam’s birthday, he showed me a “Joke Book” his class was making, and his contribution to it. Here is the title, referencing his favorite book at that time (made especially silly by his favorite clowns, Olive and Dingo, who had read… Continue reading June 2017 – Between the Birthdays (Sam at 1, Ari Almost 4)
June was packed with two birthdays and a camping trip! I started this post weeks ago and now I’ve finally got all the camping photos in, so I’m going to stop there and post about the boys’ birthdays later. Oh my goodness, I just can’t keep up! Lesson 1 of our first camping trip: We… Continue reading June 2017 – Our First Family Camping Trip
I am sooooooo behind! Ugh! It’s almost August and I’m writing about May. Well, here goes! Sam started the month out ON THE MOVE! Lots of crawling and climbing. A.’s parents visited and we went to the zoo! And scoped out venues for Ari’s birthday party. Here are some pictures from Brooklyn Park. Later, Sam… Continue reading May 2017, Sam at 11 Months Old
I ended my last post with the Peppa Pig show we took Ari to at the beginning of April, leaving Sam home with a babysitter. I worked the next two days, then took Sam’s picture a couple of days after he turned 10 months old. At the end of my last post, I also mentioned… Continue reading April 2017, Sam at 10 Months Old, Easter, and Vision Board 2017
Once again, I have so much catching up to do here! These are busy times, for sure. The day Sam turned nine months old, March 6th, I was in the middle of a 5-day stretch off work. Woo hoo!! Sam was feeding himself: We went to The Children’s Gym with friends. Now I’m thinking about… Continue reading March 2017, Sam at 9 Months Old
We came back from Reno at the end of January and settled back in to home and work at the beginning of February. Sam was moving around more on the floor but not scooting forward – yet! There was no activity on the house for a couple of weeks while the cement cured, so it… Continue reading Family Update, February 2017, Sam at 8 Months Old
Well, I have gotten WAY behind here! So I need to catch up on our trip to Reno at the end of January. It was both boys’ first time traveling to visit their grandparents there and it was Sam’s first airplane travel. In anticipation of the trip, I learned a new way to tie the… Continue reading A Trip to Reno!
