And, a happy Monday morning to all of you!
First of all, I want to thank you all for reading my little old blog! It is a pleasure to write it and chronicle this stage of my family’s life. I hope you are enjoying it as much as we are!
This morning I am going to be a little random, but we are eventually going to get moving!
Last night we had some fun snuggling before bed…
Baby girl is still sleeping…it’s 8:30 in the morning! I took her to Urgent Care yesterday because she has had a bad cough for a couple of weeks and I just wanted to get it checked out. Everything checked out clear and normal, so it’s just a darn cold. Last night was the first in about 4 nights that she did not cough her way through sleep. I think we all slept better last night. Well, except for the fact that the little guy visited and stayed in our bed for half of the night. He has woken up the last two nights and ended up in our bed due to scary noises and scary dreams.
Today we’re going to a swim lesson for the little guy. He took one session of swim lessons when he was about 6 months old and since then we haven’t been in the water much. We will have the outdoor pool to go to at our heath club this summer so we thought it would be a good idea to get the kids in swim lessons. We will also be visiting Ryan’s family in Rochester, NY this summer and his sister, who lives across the street from his parents (yes, like “Everybody Loves Raymond”), has a pool that I am sure we will spend some time in!
This morning I also made the reservation for our 4th Annual Playgroup Birthday Party! Since the kids (all of our oldest kids) turned 1 year old we have had a group birthday party for all of them. The first two years one of the families hosted it at their house (we hosted the 2nd Annual) and since then our group has grown so much due to new additions that we have done it at a local park. Everybody brings something to eat and drink, the kids play, and we do a gift exchange. It is so much fun! I am already hoping for perfect weather!
This week is going to be rainy! As the old adage goes…April showers bring May flowers! Or, if you live in the Pacific Northwest…November, December, January, February, March and April showers bring May flowers, and then more rain until our official start of Summer…the 4th of July!
home is…Monday mornings that are not rushed.
