Downward dog?

Don't you even think about taking any


Over the long holiday weekend I focused on catching up on Flickr. I believe I posted close to 430 pictures in total for our time to date in Ireland. It’s been fun to look back at our initial 4 – 5 weeks and I’ve posted some highlights below. I do have approximately another 100 pictures to download off our camera that represent the most recent week or so. I anticipate more regular updates moving forward to both Flickr and this lovely blog! And now to what everyone really wants… pictures! Be sure to add me as a contact on Flickr if you wish to see more since I keep the pictures of the kids mostly private.

The new playhouse has been a hit!

Some people do Wordless Wednesday, I think I may declare Sunday our picture day. Now I make no promises that I will always remember or that I will always have a noteworthy picture, but I am going to try!

First off, my favorite picture from Reagan’s birthday party day, She is very happy to be 1!
Rock on birthday princess!

And covered in cake:
May I have a bath now?

Reagan just loves cups with straws, now if only she would drink the water and not spit it out:

Obligatory princess picture:

Want to know what happens when mommy is not home? Apparently Star Wars happens…
Help me Obi Wan Kenobi... you are our only hope

This is what happens when mommy is not home

The girls had their last day of day care on the 24th, Caitlin’s class made her a going away card! Very cool:

We we absolutely miss them!

And that’s it for pictures this Sunday. Hope you enjoyed them 🙂


Yikes! It’s been more than two months. How did that happen? I guess time gets away from you when you have a 2.5 year old and a 6 month old.

So what’s new?

~ Muffin rolls around like it’s going out of style. Look away and she’ll be across the room.
~ Bug asks more questions every day and responds more often (with answers that make sense) when asked questions
~ Bug transitioned to Toddler II today!!!! Such a big girl, next fall it will be preschool.
~ Muffin is eating solids. She now has rice cereal and baby food of some sort daily. She seems to like the high chair.
~ Bug loves to play with Muffin. She likes to show her how things work.
~ Bug also likes to trad toys with Muffin. She knows that if she takes one from her she must give on in return. Admittedly I have to sometimes remind her of this rule.
~ Bug loves tickling Muffin, it cracks me up probably more than it does Muffin.
~ We have spent many weekend mornings at the splash park, play grounds, touching trucks, and trying to to outdoorsy stuff before it gets too hot in the day. I can’t wait for fall and evening walks or trips to the play ground.
~ Bug is almost ready for some serious potty training. Day car has already started the process, but she is starting to give us signs that she may actually be almost ready for really giving it a go.
~ Muffin is gigantic. Official stats on the 7th.

And I’m sure there is much, much more. For now I will share a funny moment from the weekend:

Bug was sitting on my lap watching a movie, Muffin was rolling around on the floor next to us. Muffin kept touching Bug and Bug would get upset. Bug finally was over it and went to stand up and go sit on the couch. In doing so she banged her head as hard as a toddler possibly could on the underside of my chin. my head may still be reverberating. As much as it hurt me, it hurt her as well and tears were flowing. I went to give her a hug and she said, ‘No mommy! You hurt Caitlin! NO THANK YOU!!!’ and went to daddy for a hug. Then cam back to me and again say ‘No thank you, mommy. No hurt’. I felt horrible, but started laughing anyway because of how adorable she was when angry. Clearly she thought I did something on purpose when she actually did it to herself, btu I apologize anyway and gave her a gigantic hug. Silly Bug.

And I leave you with these:
