Love that they love books and that the library has these window cubby holes to keep them contained.
Preview to fifteen years from now when Brooks and Edwin are cruising the hood in their red truck, with a "PLAY" vanity tag.
When naps will only happen in the car seat or in the bed with mom. Wishing so badly he would nap in his own bed when it's happening, but miss it so bad when the phase has passed.
Not so sure about the whole slide thing just yet.
Holy cannoli, how has 11 months passed already (four days ago)? And don't mind Andy's webbed toes sneaking into the frame. These pictures are only successful when he's around to help run Leena interference and make Edwin smile.
Best Craigslist purchase I've ever made: these kids. JK. The stroller.
Bare bottomed in a wire chair when it's a little bit chilly. Whatever floats your boat, LB.
I'm anticipating a call from LuLaRoe to become a consultant so we did some major rearranging. We also though that Edwin should start sleeping in his crib instead of a pack n' play before his first birthday. Not pictured: the box spring we had to saw in half and screw back together once we got it upstairs. (We know you can buy ones that fold in half for not that much...)
Cousin Boys and Cousin Girls doing cousin things. Kiki's in town so it means lots of cousin time.
Sitting in traffic for a day trip to IKEA with three adults and three kids. Seems manageable.
Meanwhile, Andy got to work with robots.
I can't remember the last time I experienced a brunch out. Probably when I was hungover and single and lived in New York. Okay, not that long, but still.
I don't remember the details of the day, but I do remember this moment being the saving grace of the day. It's all worth it when they share a smile and a giggle.
We kept seeing bees in the sunroom (no less than fifteen by the time it was said and done) and for a minute couldn't figure out why. Then we realized they had burrowed into the wood we had brought in to burn and we thought they were gone. Then there were more when Andy was at work. I, of course, had visions of nighttime swarms and immediately called my neighbor to come help me throw the wood out. Thanks, Ben!
Photo cred: Andy. Look closely, you can see the bee butt sticking out of one of the holes.
Attic, now Master Bedroom/LuLa Room
Part of the great switch was going through clothes. It's safe to say there are some things worth getting rid of.
1. Sorry Kiki wasn't featured more. She left town this morning. Just in time, too. 2. The first of many oatmeal baths because these two picked up a nice case of Hand, Foot, and Mouth somewhere along the way.
Sorry for the graphic. This was our day. Couch sitting and sleeping and trying to keep this guy happy.
Oh, here we are again doing the same thing. What a way to spend a five-day.
Finally feeling better and definitely needing some fresh air.
Not completely over the couch phase though. Love a passed out baby, am I right?!
Spring brings birdies! And these guys stayed entertained for way longer than I expected just watching them out the window.
Photographing things we are trying to sell. Anyone want to buy this hookah?
Getting back at it! To be honest, he really stayed pretty pleasant throughout this whole ordeal.
A visit from Ducky is the best.
Sunglasses, poncho, and sparkly shoes. I can't wait to meet this teenager.
She's finally not completely afraid of her balance bike! I think she just likes to wear the helmet though.
That's definitely Edwin's favorite part.
Cousins at the garden building towers.
My little Jazzercise master.
LuLaRoe crafting! All the pretty colors to make a sign I haven't even used yet. Ha. I did get the call to be a consultant one of these days and now I'm just waiting, waiting, waiting for a giant shipment of clothes to get to my house!
The first batch! This isn't even half of it. At this point, I'm thinking, "Holy cow! I hope I'm ready for this."
Story time with Molly and Alice.
We really frequented the museum this month...
He decided that since tomorrow is his birthday, he better up his skills game and decided to sneak up the stairs.
