Weekend in Review

Here are some recent pics. Eli decided yesterday (while Mommy wasn't home) to pull up to stand for the first time in the bath tub of all places. Grandma and Grandpa and Daddy were here to witness it and they were thrilled. He also says Duck which is adorable. Sometimes it is du-(he then pauses for dramatic affect)-CK and other times it is du(pause)T but either way it is precious to Mommy and Daddy. We had a play date today with Stephanie who has 5 kids of her own and that was lots of fun. It is really nice to get together with other Mom friends and "talk". I use that word loosely because we speak broken sentences in the midst of crying children (mine, of course) and telling them to stop this or that and yet it still so worth it just to have some adult conversation and change the scenery a bit.

Eli took advantage of his 4 teeth yesterday and enjoyed Daddy's apple!

Alex is so proud of himself that he can sit on the couch like a big boy and on this particular day he was the first one up from nap (which is why he looks a bit sleepy) so I could let him sit there without being distracted. Eli found a great play spot under the table.

I am realizing now that we are not in survival mode (1st 6 months) it is an important part of motherhood to get OUT!
