Weekend Away

We took a mini vacation. . . to Palmdale! We got to attend my step-brother's wedding. It was such fun and it's always great to see two people in love and eager to start their lives together! They look perfect together.

It was a bit interesting attending a wedding with a 2 year old and 4 month old... I had to quickly escape twice during the ceremony as Archer was very chatty, fussy, and terrified by applause! I was unsure how we would sleep that night (all four of us in the same room). Carter was so exhausted that he didn't make a peep but I had to listen to a snoring husband and deal with a hungry baby all night. It was great to see my dad--wish we could see him more!

Spring Is Here!

What have we been up to lately? Seems like each crazy day just blurs into the next. Carter has graduated into a booster seat and now sits at the kitchen table with us. Not sure if it is the new booster chair or what but he has definitely started eating more. (Still picky but at least he is eating!) He is obsessed with my camera and loves taking pictures. The only problem is when I get my camera back there are a million pictures of the ground, his feet, the couch, etc. Carter also started an art class this week. Today he got to use finger paints, sculpt with playdough, glue paper, sticks, and blocks onto paper, and color a picture with markers by spinning paper on a wheel. He was in heaven and I had to literally pry him out of his chair when it was time to go!

Archer is now 4 months old and is as tall (and weighs more) than Carter at 9 months old! He weighs 15 lbs 10 oz. We lovingly call him "Beast." He still has his dual personality--he is either smiley and happy or very angry. Luckily the very angry side only comes out once in awhile so overall we have a very easy baby!

I started taking a yoga class one night a week. Not sure Dave likes having both kids by himself but I am thrilled to have an hour to myself!
