Not Ready!!!!

He can pull-up, but he still needs to learn how to crawl. No skipping steps, Buddy!!

Thank you, Nonni!

The kiddos loved their puzzles and socks, August is modeling his St.Patty Day accessory.


I am in love, again!

Vera's appointment didn't really happen. We were all set to have her checked out, when the receptionist informed me that our appointment had been scheduled for an hour earlier. Say what? Ugh! Since it is already March, the next available appointment would be in June, I decided to skip it this year and catch-up at her 7-year appointment.

Big Yellow Bus

It started on Monday with, "I'd really like to ride the bus to school." A quick check with the office and her teacher on Tuesday to realize that there was literally nothing we had to do. I thought I would at least have to sign a form or initial a document. Nope, nothing. Vera rode the bus for the first time last week on Wednesday! She loves it. After the first day she describes it as relaxing and kept repeating over and over that riding the bus was the best part of her day.

If I had realized how easy it is to schlep her to the bus stop instead of three kiddos to school in the minivan, this day would have come a whole heck of a lot sooner. Three days riding the bus and she is already having long debates over who to sit with and whether or not the person she doesn't choose will get their feelings hurt.

6 Month Check-Up

Gus's 6 month check-up happened at about 7 months, but what the heck. At 6 months, Gus is scooting + getting on his knees and rocking back and forth. He is so close to crawling. His other talent, giving the biggest smiles to everyone who smiles at him and just being a super happy baby.

Darn you Costco, you get me every time! This was $20 well spent, I think.
