Down Time

After 3 exhausting weekends we finally had a weekend at home for some good ole down time. We spent 3 glorious days doing just about nothing and it was great! Don't get me wrong, the little one keeps us running (literally these days!) but after continuous weekends of being away, it was just good to spend some time at home. Craig and I did get to scoot off to a movie for our anniversary, thanks to the Reed Family for keeping Cole occupied for an evening. We also took Cole to the pool. He was a little timid of so much water but I think he'll warm up to it after a few tries. Otherwise it was just time at home...blowing bubbles, reading with Cole and running after our new walker :)

Go Team Gram!

It's hard to believe that it has been an entire year since Cole's Gram, Nancy, left us. Their spirits passed each other as Gram was on her way to heaven and Cole came into our lives.

We remembered her with a family Chinese take-out dinner that even Gram would have been proud of (we sufficiently over-ordered so there would be PLENTY of left-overs!). We also participated in a walk in her honor, the Walk for the Whisper, held in Reston this past weekend. We made t-shirts for Team Nancy and Cole strolled along in her honor. It was great fun and even better to have everyone together. Thanks Team!

Happy First Birthday

Our little man hit a HUGE milestone today...one! We celebrated this weekend with a big party and lotsa cake. I think Cole had fun?

Spring has Sprung...

and the Little one is loving the outdoors. For the past two weekends, we've had glorious weather in DC and we've taken full advantage of it by spending the majority of our days outside. Last weekend Cole assisted in remulching the planting beds by plopping himself right in the middle of them and eating the mulch. Then he helped to wash the car and ensured a full supply of soapy bubbles by playing in the water while mom and dad did all the work!

He's also full swing into ALMOST walking. It's his favorite day time activity and when the big people are too busy to assist in his activity he is likely to throw a HUGE fit. Thank GOD for toys that help with this, although the big people have to help steer them :)
