It Never Gets Old

Hiding in this cardboard box just never gets old to Lydia. Simple fun. Megan

San Jacinto Mountain and Ice-Cream

John investigates new places to explore just outside of San Diego. He navigates and drives. I pack up for the kids and take care of them along the way. Point being, we make a great team. Yesterday we headed a few hours northeast to Palm Springs. We rode a rotating airtram up the second highest mountain in California to 8,500 feet. The tram thrilled Lydia. Jack caught up on his beauty sleep. The day ended with a drive around Palm Springs to check out the architecture with Lydia in the backseat asking "Ice-cream? How about ice-cream? I want ice-cream. Ice-cream? How about ice-cream?" Megan

Our Budding Artist

One of my favorite things about picking up Lydia from preschool is seeing all the beautiful artwork she gets to create.  Megan

The Good and the Bad

The Good:
Sleep training worked!  Jack is sleeping through the night from 7 pm - 6 am flat in the crib.  To celebrate, he rode in his first grocery cart.
The Bad:
Jack is uber cranky and not napping well because he is cutting two bottom teeth.  The grocery cart provided a much needed distraction from his misery.

Future Body-Builder???

Here is Jack doing his morning exercises.  In an attempt to crawl, he typically does maneuvers only seen in the gym, planks and push-ups.  Megan

Gotta Work Son

Jack, time to go to work. No more lazy days of bottles and dozing in your favorite bouncy chair at your leisure. John and I have started down the rough path of pushing Jack to sleep flat in his crib. Once we get past this hurdle, it will be time to say good-bye to the four a.m. feeding. I am also encouraging new foods, as I feel my early trepidation contributed to Lydia's feeding difficulties. Jack wasn't sure what to think of the finger foods at first but eventually came around to the cheerios. Megan

I Promise You!

The other night I read through old postings, reminding myself what Lydia was up to when she was Jack's age, and it really struck me that my blog has gone downhill. My promise to you is to bring D and DD back to its original glory! So here is my first blog photo of Jack using my good camera, rather than my phone. Megan
