Funny thing happened. Dots is going to be a big sister. (Guess I’ll have to change the title of this section) And to make it even more fun, it’s twins – the identical ones – Say hello to the new additions ‘A’ and ‘B’: Yes, I realize this is crazy and with all our construction going on it is going to be a hectic couple of months, to try and get everything done, livable, and ready for when they decide to make their debut. We’re still not sure how we are going to handle having 3 under the age of 2 (holy cow!), with a minivan search underway we are plowing ahead and hope to have   somewhere to put them in March – our new closet is the #1 choice so far. Wish us luck! (we’re going to need...

Everyone always says time passes by quickly when you have kids – they are all right. Little miss Dots is 10 1/2 months old already. She’s got 6 going on 8 teeth, crawls, is on the verge of walking, plays hard, loves music and being tickled. She also LOVES reading. And climbing. And playing in the tub – whether it’s inside or out...

  Yes, yes yes, I am a tad behind. The snuggle bear above takes up quite a bit of my “free” time. The last few months have been full of new things. She sits on her own and can stand pretty well as long as she’s leaning on something. Rolling over is a piece of cake now a days. It’s the actual moving part that is still very hard. She scooted herself into a corner the other day and got “stuck” since she can’t go forward yet 😉 We discovered 2 teeth coming in (i have yet to be able to get a photo of them – she’s too wiggly) just about the time we broke down and gave her some real food. She was trying to steal anything and everything off our plates, so we figured she might just be ready. So far i think she’s more excited about the prospect of playing with the spoon than actually eating. But i know some gets in there as her poo has peas in it…hahaha. She’s adding food to her list at lightning speed: acorn squash, butternut squash, sweet potato, apples, banana, avaocado and peas. Made some teething biscuits today – bunnies for frank (yes he’s still here – but getting mighty old) so far i think they are a hit It’s starting to get warm outside and we can’t wait to spend our days outside...

We were racking our brains trying to think of a good costume for Dots this Halloween. And we had a lot of good ones, but in the end we went with the cheap target sleeper route. I’m glad we did as she was only wearing it for 3 hours and we never left our porch. Halloween was cold and rainy and she was being a bit of a fuss-pot. We sat on the porch and handed out candy until the wee hours (aka 7:00) which is when bedtime starts and trick or treaters don’t bode well for sleeping babies when there’s a dog around. Needless to say we had a lot of candy left over and are still picking through it. Now it’s November, geez. you’d think time would slow down when you’re not sleeping, but somehow it goes by even faster. Sadly it was time for me to go back to work and start sending Dot’s off to daycare (which is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do). I’ve got it worked out so i’m not working full days and can leave by 2:30 which leaves the afternoons for some fun. 3 month Loves: Taking bathes, having long conversations with all of the fans in the house, eating, smiling, funny faces, “sitting”, and munching on her hands. In honor of her 3months we took her into the studio for a quick photo shoot. Behold the many faces of the...

Wow time flies, I can’t believe it’s already been 2 months since Dorothy Mabel made her entrance on August 15th 2:18am –  9lbs 4 oz, 20″ long. Now that we’re getting a bit more sleep (knock on wood) we’re able to get a few more things done, like update this blog, and introduce her to the world. She is quite the little stinker with loads of personality already. We’ve been setting up photo shoots with her around the house and she humors us for now and I’ve only been peed on once during (so far 😉 She’s already had so many 1sts: 1st visit from grandparents: (Mimi and Pops) (Nan and Grandpa aka Mad Dog) 1st Snooze on the porch: 1st Bath (this little one LOVES her bath time): 1st Smiles: 1st Plane Ride: (She was such a trooper. We had a 7 hour flight delay and didn’t hear a peep from her) 1st Play Date: (Gemma Clark – 4months and Dots – 2months) We give little Dot’s a lot of guff – but she’s a pretty awesome baby and we love her a ton already and can’t wait to see what the next year brings. Per Kent’s request here is “where’d my weekend...

At 21 weeks we got another sneak peak – finally starting to look like a human: So this week the family is out boating in the BVI. Being 6 months pregnant (and really needing all of my vacation days for when the munchkin arrives) I opted out of going. Working while everyone else is out on the ocean isn’t fun, but at least I have plenty to keep me busy. I’ve started clearing out the guest room and yesterday put together the crib. It’s all starting to get real and still a lot of work to be...
