Just Two More Days

Jack turns one in two days!  I feel like I have not given him much attention in recent posts, so this post is devoted entirely to my almost one-year old.  
Favorite foods: chicken noodle soup, pears, watermelon, carrots, popcorn, baby cheetos 
Favorite book: Ten Tiny Tickles
Favorite toy:  Any toy that his sister is playing with
Favorite movie:  Baby Einstein fan, particularly likes the puppets
His moves:  He is beginning to climb and spin
His language:  First word "momma," maybe.  Puts his hands up when he wants to be picked up.  He will retrieve toys and pass out items, when asked.  He thinks the word "no" is funny, uh oh.

San Diego, You're Broken

It has been cold and rainy since returning home.  Last night, it poured.  San Diego may be broken but Lydia's leg no longer is.  She is cast free and hopping in puddles. Megan

Preschool Photo

Lydia's preschool photos arrived!  We splurged on the Christmas ornament (and passed on the mouse pad, grocery bag and pretty much every other possible thing imaginable).  Lydia now hangs next to a photo of me as a child on the tree.  Quite a resemblance.  Megan

We are now home in San Diego!  Our drive to New Orleans was easy, followed by a non-stop flight that was completely the opposite.  A week from turning one, Jack's behavior on the plane was completely on par with a toddler.  Megan

Hello Santa

We made a quick stop before heading to the airport for the kids to meet Santa.  This is a classic example of what we love about Navarre.  Santa arrived at a local restaurant on a fire truck.  No huge crowds waiting to meet him.  Lydia even got to sit in his fire truck.  When he asked Lydia what she wanted for Christmas, she replied "Tom and Jerry movie."  Megan

Gulf Breeze Zoo

I know the San Diego is world-class but when it comes to entertaining young kids the Gulf Breeze Zoo may have them beat.  The petting zoo and bird feeding was such a hit with the kids today, particularly with Lydia.  She spent over a hour feeding the birds.  I kept encouraging her to move on to other animals.  She grew angry at me asking and snapped, "MOM, I'm almost there!"  This was her way of telling me to not rush her fun.  Megan

These Crazy Kids

Our vacation is sadly winding down.  This means John and I have gone into "work mode," fixing up the condo.  Entertaining two kids while trying to do projects is not easy.  Everything seems to take three times as long as it should.  John reminds me, "They are just kids being kids."  Megan
