Seven!

The boys turned SEVEN years old recently! Seven really seems like the official end of little kid and beginning of just kid years. Six was a good year. They finished kindergarten and did great. Their academic skills improved a lot, they made a lot of friends, they had a lot of fun. They were definitely... Continue Reading →

Six Years Old!!

These boys are now SIX! Here's what they've been up to as five year olds. Lots of big milestones this year.   First huge milestone--they both learned to read!

Four! Fall & Winter 2016

We have four year olds! Big, giant, articulate four year olds. Who give spontaneous hugs and kisses, who fall to the floor yelling about not enough cheerios in their snacky cup, who scale couches and counters, who can entertain themselves and each other, who sometimes share nicely and who sometimes fight like dogs over jammies...

Life at 3.5: Spring 2016

The boys are 3 1/2! And man, we are definitely living with three-year-olds. (Though M says, "I'm thirty-five," because that's how much he weighs.) There are a lot of tantrums--most of them are about food, and most of them are when the boys are tired and/or hungry. Sometimes they're both having a tantrum at the... Continue Reading →

Two Years Old!!

Dear sweet babies, Ok ok, you are now officially, definitely, not babies anymore. You are TWO! I am trying not to refer to you as babies as much, at least not in public. I guess I have to just call you 'boys' or 'kids' now. Sniff. E, you are 34.5 inches tall and you weight... Continue Reading →

Here's what you did and learned as 21 month olds: You are picking up a lot more words, including: aunty, uncle, hello (both with and without the pronounced L sound), peekaboo (which sounds like...

21 Months Old

Dear sweet babies, You are 21 months old! You are getting more independent and opinionated--learning and growing and figuring out.        There are definitely more tantrums lately...mornings can be tough sometimes. Actually so can evenings. You have so many things you want to do and when you can't do them, you get very upset. But... Continue Reading →
