adam's first triathlon

We spent the weekend in the San Antonio area visiting our friends Matt, Meghann and Miss Molly Bee.  We had a blast.

On Saturday morning, Meg and I loaded up the babies in their Bobs ...

And headed to San Marcos, where we happened to find these two about to jump in the river...

While the guys competed in the Aquarena Springs Tri, we spent the morning in the beautiful Texas Hill Country as spectators.  We cheered on our husbands and let the babies play on a blanket...

Look at those hineys!  Meg made them matching onesies just for this occasion. 

Luke passed the time by trying to pull the bow off of Molly's head and playing in eating the dirt.  Little rascal. 

The guys did great!

And we had a wonderful time hanging out with our friends. 
We miss this family so much and just can't wait for them to move back home!  ;)

sneak peak

On Friday morning, we loaded up the car to take a little trip....  

And on Sunday afternoon, we came home.

Somewhere between Houston and San Antonio, we made a little pit stop to let Luke and Daisy get some fresh air. 

Details of our adventure to come...

week in review

That sums it up.
Don't know why but this little man was so happy this week. 

This series is for you, Honey.  We know how much you love the mohawk. 

Waking up happy.  Enjoying the tub.  Little stinker can't wait to get his fingers on my computer!

Diaper changes are like wrestling a cat.  He rolls over the second I've got him naked. 

Made a few batches of baby food.  Blueberry+Pear is his new favorite.  :)

Had a tiny little plumbing issue in the master bathroom.  Don't worry, it's all better now. 

Luke got a rash.  Caused from a virus, I believe.  Didn't bother him a bit but it sure was nasty looking.

Honey, Luke and I took a trip to Houston for a Just Between Friends event.  We came home with lots of winter clothes, a few toys, sippy cups, and a shopping cart cover.  We ate at Chick-fil-A on the way back and Luke had a blast. 

Here's to a happy week!

week in review

So I totally stole this idea from another blog that I read ... thought it was a great way to capture the everyday.  So often, I don't take pictures or blog about something because things aren't perfect.  Maybe Luke had spit up on his onesie, or my hair hadn't been washed, the house was a mess, or I didn't have the "good camera" ready to go.  But I want to remember the messy moments too.  The everyday.  So I'm going to let go of my perfectionism and post some iPhone pics every now and then.

So we can remember these days. 

This past week, the high temps were in the 90s and we had much cooler mornings.  What a relief! Luke and I spent several afternoons out in the backyard, watering the plants and enjoying the breeze.

Little man has officially learned to feed himself Puffs.  Took a few days, but finally, finally, the fist made it to the mouth and successfully released the tiny little crumb of banana-flavored air bubbles ...

He has a new splint for his left foot, so he can safely play in his exersaucer with both feet touching the bottom.

Daisy.  Long runs with mom.  Floor time with dad.  Homemade chocolate syrup.  Delicious. 

Adam and I got a date night.  Dinner.  Movie.  Marble Slab.  Yahtzee.  Wonderful.

I didn't take pictures, but little man had two doctor's appointments this week.  He had his six-month check up at mommy's office and it went well.  He weighs 14 lbs 6 oz and he's 26 1/4 inches long.  This puts him around the 40th percentile for length and just over the 2nd percentile for weight.  In the words of Dr. Robinson, he's not the chubbiest kid on the block.

And we saw his orthopod, too.  Good news!  The x-rays show about 7 degrees of straightening of his left tibia.  Progress.  Slow, steady progress.  Please continue to pray for complete healing.  The next six months are pretty important, as we'd like that bone to get as straight as possible before he wants to start walking.
