The kids (Alex, Nate, Zak, and Bella) were downstairs playing in the Fisher Price kitchen, feeding me and Puder fake food. What a treat, yum yum. Nate's play still consists of bringing me stuff and saying "mmmmm." Then my expected reply, I am supposed to pretend to eat, say "Wow, Nate that's a yummy ______" If I don't say "Wow" He says it for me.So Alex star[...]

A New Brother?

Before I stat this post... No, I'm not pregnant. Not even trying.We were riding home today and Alex said "I'm big. Nathan is getting big too. He's not little anymore.

Bella, however... about 5 minutes into the maze, she started complaining "My belly h[...]

The best part: Alex says he's not afraid of the firemen or the smoke detectors anymore. I think this was the breakthrough we needed in our fear of all things fire-related. As they say, knowledge is power!

Little Summer turns 2!

One of Baby Nate's friends had her 2nd b-day party today. She's a cutie. It's funny to think of Nate having friends. Oh well, he enjoys them all!
