Old Friends and New Ones

Katy, Meghan, and I have been friends for about... gulp... 25 years now. We've stayed friends through different schools, different states, marriages, kids, and everything else that life has thrown at us. We drift apart for a while and then when we talk it's like no time has passed. Meg now lives in Chicago so it's been a long time since we have all seen each other, over 5 years to be exact. So when she decided to come East to visit there was no option, come hell or high water we would get together. And it was so much fun!!! Just like no time had elapsed... we might have been sitting on Katy's bed in middle school giggling over some boy. I hope it's not another 5 years before we can do it again!!!!
And our three munchkins played so well together. Linds is exactly 9 months older than J who is 9 months older than Riley so they're all in the terrible twos and threes but they did really well for never having played together.
**It was REALLY hard to get the three of them to stay still!**
I hope that someday they can appreciate the power of friendship that has kept their moms so close for so long! Love you guys!!!!

So Fast

I look back on the last two and a half years and can't believe that it's already been that long. Jumpin' J used to be my itty bitty baby and now he is such a big boy with his own thoughts and opinions.


And then I look back just 36 weeks and think that I now have an almost full term baby in my belly and marvel at how fast that has flown by too. I am such a lucky mom to have such a wonderful big boy and a new baby on the way.


Happy 2.5 years my big boy! I love you!

I think this question might be every parent's worst nightmare. It certainly was mine. Jumpin' J is officially using it for everything now. And I try to answer him honestly as much as I can. But after the fiftieth "Why" I found myself answering this age old question with an age old answer...

"because I said so".

I guess this makes me an official parent now!

Happy Birthday Auntie Laura and Cousin Jeff

Happy Birthday to two of our favorite people. We hope you both have a wonderful day today and always. Here's Jumpin' J enjoying the wonderful weather your birthday has brought to Massachusetts!!!


Check out the Cookie Monster shoes!! (Almost like Jimmy Choo's right Auntie Laura?)

Only 6 More Weeks

Jumpin' J is such a funny and smart little boy, he constantly amazes me.
Today in CVS I was getting a little frustrated looking for iron supplements which I need for the pregnancy. And J pats me on the arm and says "It's OK Mommy, only six more weeks."
I burst out laughing and gave him a big smooch.
Just think, in about 6 more weeks I'll have another little child to love and hug and give big smooches too!
Only 6 more weeks!!!
I love you Jumpin' J!!!!!!!!
