Arlo is so in love with Finn these days. Its adorable! And Finn is actually really tolerant. I'm starting to see the payoff for having them so close together. They really keep each other occupied and play pretty well, considering Finn is three.

And hanno, Arlo is a skinny little thing too. I was just looking at your pics of Ion, and they seem very close to being the same body type. And when Arlo was sick those couple of weeks, I was getting nervous too, because they just don't seem to have that much to lose. But he has put it back on in no time now that he's feeling better. He will never be rolly polly though!

Great shorties!

So I was just making lunch, and I hear from the other room the sound of a glass hitting something (not breaking). That's odd I think to myself, since the only place there were any glasses was up on the table, and there is no way Desmond could have climbing up there... So I look through the pass through and who do I see sitting happily on the table playing? Yep Desmond. I couldn't find the camera in time to take pictures so I took him down. After we ate I recreated the scene for everyone's enjoyment though. So here is Desmond and the great table climb.

He used the boon potty we bought him as a step stool to get up tall enough to climb on the dining room chair, and from there it was an easy reach to climb onto the table. I guess I need to move the potty somewhere else now.

nothing is safe now!! Caroline stood up on her rocking zebra the other day!!! oh no she is learning to climb!!! lol oh and i love the Columbia yarn!


Caroline has at least 11 words- mama, baby, kitty, hi, bye, LALA( Isla her little baby friend) and Lara( Islas mom!) , Clap, thank you, no.... i think there is another but i can't think of it right now!


I have been sick, nasty cold for a week, then Thursday it turned in to a sinus/ear infection and my ear was clogged that turned to horrid pain, went to my dr got antib's cause it was so bad, well then my ear drum burst friday night pain went away but my ear is still so clogged! so my dr ( nurse practitioner) told me to try candling i haven't done it yet though i did go buy the ear candles but i am nervous about doing it with having ruptured my ear drum... anyone know anything about it? can i do it after having had it rupture... and can i do it no since its been 4 days? i am feeling much better but its annoying to have it feel like i have a sock in my ear!!


My Hailey wants me tell you all that she got glasses for reading on thrusday! she looks so sweet in them!

The ear thing sucks, I have no clue about what to do once the ear drum has burst sorry.

I bet Hailey looks greatt in her reading glasses, I am always pro glasses (of course wearing them for 29 out of 30 years makes me a bit biased).

If Caroline's birthday is Sunday you probably aren't up for coming out and meeting us at South Mountain Creamery on Saturday. They are having their open house this weekend, so we figured we've drive up Saturday after Gymboree and arrive around 2:30/3pm for awhile.

Sounds like a plan. We figured Saturday made sense since Desmond can nap in the car on the way up so he should be nice and rested when we get there.

Crud. we just got an email about a birthday party I *should* go to on Saturday - two of my friends are turning 30, and they came to my 30th party. I had planned to go, but DH really wants to get started packing since we move out in ~3-4 weeks. So, I went from a fun family outing to packing to party, and now I find out that you all might be going!!!

Oh, Abby is still not a walker, but last night she stood up on her own and took 3 steps. She's ready, but not confident. She has no clear words, but says Dada, and has a noise for dog and has been trying to say fish. In the last few days she has been trying not only to walk, but has been *obsessed* with putting things in a container, closing it, and then opening it to take them out. It is nice because it keeps her very occupied.

Oh, and I have to say I am more and more admiring my 5 yo, Ari. 95% of the time she is helpful with Abby. she is very good at alerting me when Abby is up to no good, and they play happily together for as long as it takes Abby to get into something she shouldn't! It is oh so cute

Happy Birthday Seamus!!! Sorry, I missed your post yesterday lunabelly...

Sophia had her app't today. 21# and 29". Wowsers! None of her sisters were even close in weight at this point. They all hit 20 somewhere around 15 months.

I lied or something. After I posted, she practiced walking and walked from me to Ari several times - maybe 5 steps each time. While she prefers to crawl still, she was laughing the whole time, so I think her confidence is greater.

Awww, you should come if you can, but if not life gets busy quickly I've found so I'm sure we'll all meet up again somewhere.



So I tried for WCW shorties tonight, DH had the purchase now button on his screen, but it had logged him out, so they sold out since he couldn't get them with having to log in. They were sold out by the time I got the page loaded, sigh. Oh well, not a huge deal, but we do like the pair of longies we have.

I'm sure we will! If I don't find a house in Columbia we will move in with Mom in Silver Spring, just off 29, and I'm not working this summer! My first summer off since.. 98? I went to Ecuador that summer, but it was for school so maybe it doesn't count.

Living with Mom...

You know my in-laws live in Silver Spring not that far from 29, we take 29 to get there. I am sure you will find something in Columbia, hopefully fairly soon!


In other news my brother and his girlfriend are moving to Maryland, they aren't sure where yet, but probably Laurel. He has a job interview next Tuesday (he's spending the night here) and he is hopeful about getting the job. His girlfriend just got a job in the area. It will be nice to have him around. They're moving down after they graduate from college towards the end of May. It will be nice to have more family in the area.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!

I haven't posted pics of Ronan recently. Flickr now has video storage, so I uploaded a vid of Ronan playing his new piano.

And while my babe still seems short (and stout), I cannot believe he's big enough to do this.

One year ago Monday.

Sweet Newborn Ronan!

Just a bump to say hello.

Scarlet has taken to shoving large pieces of food in her mouth - thinks it's hilarious! Amazing, she chews it all up and swallows - no choking or gagging - this girl is hungry!

He just loves his sweet mumamilk - but I'd be frustrated, too.

Back to the world of living. Somewhat.
Saw my doctor yesterday, I have pharyngitis and laryngitis so she gave me a week off from work. Yep. I started work 2 weeks ago and only worked 3 days
Now Romi woke up with fever.


Kris: hope Zenon is feeling better, poor thing.

Hanno: did Ion get fatter after his little non eating stint?

Happy birthdays to all the babies I missed!!!

And I'm guessing my gift still hasn't arrived

He'll give me his spoon if I ask for it, hold with two hands if I tell him too, come to us, bring things to people. Sometimes I do wonder if he doesn't know he's human and can talk like us. Communicating with him is very similar to with the animals. We use english and they use body language, gestures and their own language.
Evangeline has a few words, but they're not always consistant or recognizable. Mama, dada, kitty, teddy, bunny, all done, up...that's about it. I think the key to deciphering them is recognizing that they probably are talking, you just don't catch it. They sure do understand more than we give them credit for. I just love how Evangeline goes on and on so sure she is talking with various intonations, but it's all babble. She has the cutest 'ooohhh' when she's delighted or intrigued by something, I need to catch it on camera. It starts low, then pitches high and back low again.
Hanno- don't forget we use body language too- just not that we are always aware of. Although- I don't blame you one bit for not wanting him to talk yet!

This sounds just like Eva too! She's very similar...she does walk but it's not always confidantly, and she takes these short little wobbly steps and goes halfway, before giving in to her wobble. I had to laugh today, though because here she is just learning to walk, and she had gotten a hold of one of my dh's chips, and she's wobbling all the way across the room, eating the chip at the same time! It was so funny- yep, she's a girl. Multi-tasking right from the start!

Oh, hon- the pair I was going for stocked at 8:31, and I hit it at 8:31:02 and it was gone. That was so freaking fast it was unbelievable. I've been trying for weeks!
