lately

It's been a while since I have done a lately post.. truth be told there has been a lot going on around here.. and I am still playing catch up.

D started pre k!


We have been making weekly trips to our library and reading all kinds of fun new books at bedtime.


H is growing and learning everything so fast.. he is becoming quite the trouble maker


This past month we had family visit and took a few fun day trips with them which I will hopefully share soon.. and spent a a few days at Niagara Falls.. details to come. Have you seen all the other places we have had the fortune of travelling too? Places We've Been

We are also getting started on a few more house projects.. M and I are DIYing one room while a contractor has been hired for another.. exciting times with a little frustration. Take a look back at some of our other house projects and my tips for hiring a contractor. Inside Our House


My in laws are in the process of making the transition to becoming a permanent part of our home. They spent the last five month with us and just left.. the house is quieter, emptier and feels incomplete.. most of all D lost his favorite play mate.. his dada.

100 Hugs

When I was pregnant with H, D started this new thing.. huggy time. Ten.. Twelve times a day he would come up to either M or I and state that it was huggy time.. during dinner, while driving, in the middle of the night and pretty much all other times in between. Now as his vocabulary has increased and his thoughts are evolving he requests 100 hugs. He likes to hear us whisper the count. Now while I am all about hugs.. and I want to squeeze in as many huggable moments as I possibly can in the short time that I have before my hugs become 'embarrassing' rolling eyes they are not always convenient to give especially when I have a fussy H in my arms or I am feeding him etc.. so sometimes.. more often that not we may skip a few numbers.. Well our little smarty pants has caught on.. and now he insists he do the counting.. plus three kisses on each cheek. :) 



If I could I'd hug him forever... Little H on the other hand doesn't comprehend the concept of a hug as of yet.. so while D tries to envelope him in a great big bear hug H kicks and screams trying to break free.

Parked - This little gem was an unexpected find while taking a ferry ride from Delaware to New Jersey. I can just imagine it up on a wall in a man's office.. blown up and enlarged and beautiful.

We were 10 adults and 7 children under the age of 10. This was our first trip together.. and we had so much fun we may just make this a yearly event.
