Tuesday ECFE playdates were always more fun when Jori could make it! Not only did Hank like having her around, but the other babes did, too!

This was our last playdate at Allison and Elise's house. There was a water table, a pool and Elise's super cool birthday car! Hopefully, Jori, Hank and I can visit on a weekend and go for a spin!

Our First Summer

As I begin to land from my year off flight, I'm still enjoying the pleasures of my children and our town. Henry, Jori and I hit up the aquarium yesterday and this time Henry only wanted to be carried by his sister. At one point, he got so excited by the fish and sharks, he screamed out in glee and was pointing around.

I'm very fortunate to have had this time to connect and grow with Hank, but also to be home this summer with Jori. Though her and I would spend each and every day at the beach if we could, we know this time has been priceless.

I love my children, love my husband and love this incredible time in my life.

On our staycation! This is the MOA aquarium where Hank really liked looking at the sharks, jellyfish, a girl with an owl on her shirt,  sister, and stingrays. It turned out soooooo well, we'll be back for sure.

What is this white stuff?

We haven't seen much snow this year. It's been an easy winter, especially having a baby. Didn't need to bundle Hank up much and his car seat cover actually kept him toasty warm.

Fell asleep last night to the beautiful, big snowflakes falling and couldn't wait to get outside for a few minutes today. I pulled Hank around the yard a few times, too. Not sure if I can upload video here, but it's pretty cute because he seriously cannot move a muscle in his snowsuit.

Lots has been going on over the past few weeks and months, and sadly I'm behind on my blog! I better go back and as some stuff!

Hanky Panky meets Kris Kringle

I took Hank to meet Santa; the same Santa I brought Jori to when she was little! He is so awesome and I will admit I think this is the best photo I've seen with a baby and the guy in the red suit! Merry Christmas!

Pals 4 Life

Oliver loves Jori so much! He jumped ship when I brought Hank home and hasn't left Jori's side since. I gotta say that I kinda miss his snuggles, but I gained the drooler, so life is still a'ight.

I know, I know... You are not supposed to have favorites, but Oliver is my favorite gray kitty and Jori is my favorite daughter.

These days my hands are full with Hank (literally) and I know someday soon I'll get to hang more with my favorites.

It's 4am really, but day light savings just occurred. I guess this is what happens in the middle of the night.?? I'm just glad he's on the dirty side of the sink...
