We're taking over

Okay, so mom has been so busy that she has been a total slacker on our blog. She makes excuses like work, life, chasing dad and us around now that we're all three crawling and almost walking, but we don't buy it. We want people to know what we're up to, so we are taking the blog over! We drew straws, and I (David) got the longest one, so I get to write our first entry.

We went out to breakfast with our friend Avery Davenport (you can check out her blog here) and learned all about this blogging thing. She said it was pretty easy, so we thought we'd try it.

Summer has been great. We were too little (and too in the hospital) to fully enjoy last summer....but boy are we making up for lost time now! Da put up these great swings in the courtyard so we can swing ALL THE TIME! How cool is that?

And look at the pool Ba got for us. It's like bath-time but better! We like sitting in our pool or getting in the big pool with the other kids. GAM (Great Aunt Mary) gave us each a floaty seat so we can float around the big pool and stay out of the sun. Mom still finds the need to slather us with sunscreen all the time, though. Ugh.

Margot wanted me to put in this picture of her with our soon-to-be cousins Braden and Calen. We have been able to spend lots of time with them this summer which has been fantastic. They are really busy with baseball, but they like to come over and swim with us, too!

In honor of father's day, Margot picked out some recent pictures of dad with us. Here's dad helping me use a rocking chair at Great Uncle Pat and Great Aunt Cheryl's. I told him I had it down, but he is such a worry-wart! Parents, what can you do?

Here's one of dad and Margot at the annual NICU reunion from earlier in the day. Between you and me, I think Margot had had enough of Mommy's camera wagging. We had a great time there seeing the kids we met in the hospital! Well, actually, we didn't meet them back then....but we heard a lot about them from mom and dad. We got to meet them this year. We also got to see some of our old doctors and nurses. Most of them still remember us, duh. I'd be surprised if they didn't! We think it will be even more fun next year when we can play in the inflatables and enjoy face painting and other kid stuff.

Sunday night we went to Aunt Martha and Uncle Chris' house for Uncle Chris' birthday. It was a blast. We got to eat pizza crust and play with Braden and Calen. Plus, Aunt Martha had just moved all her stuff from her condo and we found this cool mirror she had put on the ground for us. Don't laugh at my pilgrim outfit, you know you love it.

That's all for now. Margot is in charge for the next one, and she's going to try to figure out how to post videos because mom has been getting lots of good ones.

Catch ya later alligator,
