I love my boys

I know I might vent from time to time, but these boys amaze me. It is so gratifying to see them learn new things, hear "please" and "thank you" from Isaac, and get hugs and kisses from both.

Isaac is still super musical and wants to sing, dance, or play music all the time.  He's surprisingly good at making up tunes. He is silly and wants to do everything quickly, like run somewhere or sing Mary Had a Little Lamb at top speed.  He also takes after his Daddy and tries to make me laugh.

Asher is getting all his molars at once.  He is also going through another growth spurt.  All he does is eat and sleep.  One of the few foods he doesn't like is eggs, but he eats everything else so well, that it's okay.  He is a happy boy who is very curious.  He will run to you and give you a hug if you have your arms stretched out. It melt my heart every time.

Last weekend we were so relieved that we had sun again that we took a family trip to the zoo. It was great and nice to go all together.  Here are a few pictures.


  1. Awww. I love this post! I love the grateful heart you have, and the beautiful boys you admire even while giving so much of yourself to them! I'm glad you all got to go to the zoo together. When you have preschoolers, I think that there is sometimes a glut of family time so much so that it is hard to make time for "family time," if that makes sense. Your boys are amazing! They melt my heart, too!

  2. Heidi, So much fun at that age. So cute. Thanks for posting things so I can love my grandchildren from afar. Love Mom

We're still in recovery mode from a cold last week.  We're a bit run down, but still managing to run around.  That's the way it goes with a toddler and a baby, though.

On the plus side, we are having fun through the coughs.

Isaac is having a wonderful time at school.  His teacher sent me these a few days ago.

Isaac continues to amaze me.  He's smart. He puts things together. And sometimes, he says really funny things.

We went out to a restaurant recently. On our way out he said, "We ate the restaurant!" He then corrected himself and said "We ate IN the restaurant."Me whispering to him before his bedtime "Say night-night to Daddy", "Night-night ice cream" and he waved to his empty bowl.  We know what's important to him. He's really into Thomas books, but doesn't really watch Thomas and Friends on TV much.  He's still all about the elevators on YouTube.  Almost every night he requests the book Strega Nona. I think he…

Nine Hours!

Asher slept nine hours straight the other night. This was the first time ever. It was wonderful.  At that time I fed and changed him, then he slept another 4 hours.  What a life. It was great for me, though. I slept in until almost 7:00am, so I'm thrilled.

We've had a pretty good week. Last weekend my parents came to visit us for a quick trip. It seems our visits are always centered around food. Next time I hope they stay longer and we can do more activities. You know, more food. :-)

They brought presents that we couldn't fit into the car and they brought a train table that wasn't being used by my nephews anymore. It's been an instant hit!  Isaac loves playing and Asher loves being destructive. It's at a good level so Asher can walk around it on his own. I find that I'll put the track together and am happy with what I've done, then Asher comes and ruins it. I think I care more than Isaac. :-)
We've been enjoying the weather as well. We get out as mu…

Back to work

I started half-days on Monday, except Tuesday was super long as I went to a conference two hours away and presented.  It worked out well.  The conference planner was very accommodating of my making-milk-for-baby needs.

I cried on Sunday in anticipation of going back to work.  I cried a little when I got home on Monday and finally got to hold Asher.  Tuesday and yesterday were better.  Today I missed him acutely. I just have a need to hold him when I get home and I'm doing okay. I would have loved to take a bit more time in order for Asher to be on a better schedule, but it didn't work out that way.  I'm lucky I had as much time as I did.

Alex has been wonderful.  He's sent me pictures of Asher while I'm at work, which is helpful.  Here are a few.

Isaac and Asher seem to be doing well.  I come home and they are happy.  Isaac needs more snuggles, but I'm happy to oblige. Asher was super happy today. You can see his skin tag in his nose really well in this video. …
