worth a thousand words

Here is how we spent most of the rest of the day after returning from The Little Gym.  Can you spot his favorite letter to write?   Imagine that. Hmm, things seem to be entering dangerous territory, but he assures me it’s just a little harmless finger painting. (Looks like ‘hand’ painting to me) I [...]

SAHMO2B

Okay, I made up that last part, but I do know that SAHM stands for Stay at Home Mom, so I assume ‘Of Two Boys’ would be ‘O2B.’   Yes, today was my first day all alone with my two little boys.  My husband went back to work today AND my Mother-in-Law left.  It was a [...]

worth a thousand words

I just realized the last few posts/photos are a little John Xavier heavy.  I need to show you the tough little New Yorker (wearing a Cape Cod sweatshirt and a Red Sox hat…obviously) that is being the best big brother I have ever seen. Love this kid.

Uh, I’m not so sure about you, Mr. Elephant.  Are you sure you’re supposed to be purple with green spots? I swear my big brother said elephants are gray…I’m just sayin’- I’m keeping my eye on you.

Can you spot the baby?

Even though John Xavier is our second baby, we were still unprepared for how little he is.  It’s amazing that you can completely forget just how tiny a newborn is.  When I was putting away baby clothes a few weeks ago I remember thinking that there was no way our new baby would be small [...]

Have I mentioned I love the grandparents?

It seems as though I am healthier pregnant than not pregnant. I had this uncomplicated pregnancy, perfect drug-free birth experience, welcomed an amazing, healthy baby to this world…and then BAM! post partum has just smacked me in the face…with a stinking two-by-four. First there was the Mastitis, then some more Mastitis, then a THIRD bout [...]

John Xavier with his namesake.  If he grows up to be the same height, we just might have to worry about both boys being forced into being in the NBA…

memories of my father

Warning: If you happen to be drinking an orange seltzer you might want to put it down before reading this post. My husband has been out with my son since 9:00 am this morning (it is 1:30 pm as I write this.)  Carlitos had swim lessons and then they stayed for an Earth Day  art [...]

body math

Pride in numbers Pre-Baby: 36-24-36 Pride in numbers Post-Baby: 7,4-6,13-7,10 The first row of numbers, well, is there really anyone who doesn’t know what that is referencing? The second row of numbers are John Xavier’s weights at birth, a day and half after birth, and then at a week old. My body might not be [...]
