Children's Museum

We had a wonderful weekend last weekend!  Olivia, who Drew now calls "Oweeeee" came to visit for the weekend and it was a great time.  We decided to go to the Children's Museum - it was Drew's first trip.  He had an absolute blast!  We ended up buying a membership and I can only imagine the use we will get out of it!

Now that we are spending more and more time in public places with other children I am amazed at the sheer LACK of parent involvement that we see.  I can't believe the number of parents sitting back, letting their kids run wild while the parent talks on the phone, texts, or reads a book.  Come on people - kids need to be parented!  Besides, they are missing out on the moments in their kids' lives that they can never get back. my soapbox for now! 

As you can see from the pics below, we had an absolutely amazing time!  We can't wait to return.

Oh, and one other thing - Little Man has finally decided that walking is for him and he now walks all the time - everywhere!  He has been this way with every milestone - technically a little behind the books, but once he decided to take off - there is no turning back.  That's why we love our little independent soul!

Poor, Neglected Blog

Oh, this poor blog has been quite neglected since Little Man has entered our lives! In some ways I feel bad, but I love the busyness brought on by being a Mama. I wouldn't trade it for the world! Here is the quick rundown of what has been happening arond here:

*Words.....boy, oh, boy does Little Man have quite the vocabulary. We are astonished at he amount of words n his vocabulary. Some of the list includes: kitty, cookie, up, push, thank you, tractor, eat, all done, choo choo, santa, truck, wow, light, uh oh, and many more. He also knows many, many names as well as what sounds a dinosaur, cat, dog, and pig make.

*Ever since "crib bootcamp" at the end of November, he has slept from 7 PM to at least 6 AM in his own bed, no problems.

*A couple of weeks ago Drew decided to take his first steps. He hasn't really done a whole lot of walking since because frankly crawling is much faster. We aren't worried, and we aren't in a rush either. It should be noted, however, that the dude can clmb a flight of stairs in no time!

*We are currently at the tail end of hand, foot, and mouth disease. Not fun, but Little Man has been such a trooper and some extra snuggles have been a great cure!

*We absolutely adore being Drew's Moms and he continues to amaze us each and every day. We can't believe how he seems to grow literally overnight and he learns something new every day.

*We can't wait for some warmer weather to come our way so that we can enjoy some new outdoor adventures as a family!
