half birthday

little man, you light up my life. It is truly hard to believe you have been in our lives for a year and a half now. you are also too big for your britches, imitating and doing things that are well beyond things you should be doing. you are at a age that we all watch in amazement and absolute adoration...even Cole. for the first time this week, you said your brother's name. so cute. speech seems to be right around the corner but for now I adore the babble and noises you always seem to be making.

please stay this little...and cute...i can't bear to think of you any bigger :)

oopsy daisy

Yikes a month has passed and I'm not sure I've ever been this much of a slacker! I've definitely thought of writing on the blog but in the midst of home improvements, being mom, Easter, preparing for Cole's birthday bash and oh yea, being a wife and throwing in a little time for myself, the blog has taken a back seat. The boys and I ventured downtown last week to experience the Cherry Blossoms. I knew it was an ambitious field trip but I insisted that we would pack a lunch and do it, no matter what it took. Well it wasn't easy to trek 2 boys, a stroller, lunch and a diaper bug up a shuttle bus' steps but I did it! two times :) I am so blessed to have 2 very behaved little guys that would even attempt this with me.
Brooks continues to grow into a little man at an amazing pace. I discovered tooth number 10, a rear molar, today as we played. He seems to want to speak and babbles as if he really is, but doesn't have many real words at this point. Cole got his first "shiner" while visiting his cousins this weekend. That is injury number 4 to his face in the last 3 weeks. Ugh, what I have to look forward to as the mother of boys!
