Long time


It has been a long long time. Do I have an excuse? Nope. Just life in general. That and being deliriously in love with my little man and well, just kept putting things off and putting off until you feel like if you do post, well then, who would still be reading?

We've been busy being busy. Went to PA in May. Visiting family. Took an airplane. With a 20 month old. Ugh. He kept trying to kick the seat in front of him and screeching when I wouldn't let him. DH put his head in his hands as if to say "I'm not part of this". Pissed me off! After the first 45 minutes or so, S fell asleep and that made things much easier.

Packing to travel on a plane with a toddler is a PAIN IN THE ASS. There is way too much stuff needed. Way too much. Even when you are going to a place that has stuff for the child to play with. So we had one large suitcase (weighed in at 49.5 pounds), and 2 smaller one's checked AND the bag with the toddler toys for the plane.

S is doing great. His vocabulary and putting words together is moving at amazing speed right now. He is 21 months old now. He says things like, "no more please" and "TRACTOR!!!!" (he loves tractors), "dat's my car" "kitty eat". Fun stuff :)

I hope that all are doing well..

Hi Kellie:
It is hard to believe our little men are growing so fast. 21 months already. It was so nice of you to come over and comment. I have often wondered how you are all doing. S is a very handsome little boy and he has a lovely mischievous twinkle in his eye. Keep the posts coming every now and again

I just cannot believe that it has been so long. Your guy has gotten so big. And don't scare me about airplane travel. We are planning a trip to Portugal in September with Zara. Yikes!
