this was supposed to be a quick "dip in and dip out" for judah after an explosive diaper. little did i know he had matured from a baby to a fully sitting independent bather overnight. he was NOT letting me take him out that quick...he had some serious splashing to do!look mom! i have a beard like daddy (apparently some chest hair too:)
my clean (and happy) boys

seven months

hello! aren't i a cute baby? so innocent and adorable...
oh! you thought i was a baby laying there all cute and cuddly. just kidding! i get up on all fours and rock and i can do plank pose better than any yoga instructor. my baby days are over...i'm about to be on the move!
you o.k. with that?

no, judah. i am actually very NOT o.k. with that. but, you are leaving me little choice. although you still eat (no solids) and sleep (up every few hours) like a newborn, you move and interact like a toddler. though your mouth still flashes a toothless grin, you want to be a part of the action like someone years ahead of you. you are a whopping 22 pounds, so i guess you're technically big enough to be in preschool, but i just want you to be a baby a little bit longer.
so if i don't cheer and coo every time you attempt a crawl or grasp things with razor-like precision, don't think i'm not proud of you...i just want to hold onto these days a bit more. you see, i've had two other babies, and i know where this is going...

read this. now.

as you probably have noticed, i am not big on the passing on of long articles. i like my anecdotes short and sweet and i firmly believe a picture is better than a thousand words. not a fan of the "forward emails" or copying and pasting the entire work of someone else. i know as a reader, i'm just not that interested. or don't have the time. but this, my friends, is worth your time and your interest.

2010-2011 first day of school

the big transition to "all day"....1st day of kindergarten
big transition to a new school, providence hall, with new teachers, new rules and new friends
thankfully, with his grade tripling in size from last year, he won't be recognizable as the "new kid" :)
reports from the first day have been positive from both boys. Judah and i aren't sure how we feel about it yet.
