Now that you have been fully informed on the details of our wonderful vacation, it’s time to give a little update on the kids.


As of yesterday, Lance (19 1/2 mo) weighs 19 lbs, has 8 teeth and wears underwear all the time now.


Ivy (4 mo) weighs 16 lbs, has rolled over once and wears size six month clothing.


Lance loves his fire truck book and will “read” it by making siren noises. One night after he was put to bed I caught him up by the door –where the light was better – reading his fire truck book in his fire truck pj’s. Had to go around the corner and laugh before telling him to get back in bed.


Ivy loves to smile and laugh. She does her little “sit-ups” all the time, often holding them for 10-15 seconds at a time! She’s on a good schedule now, sleeps 11 hours at night and eats only four time a day. Wonder baby!

Lance is developing new skills every day. Once I was sitting at my computer when I hear a sound that was his equivalent of “ta-da!” and turned to see him like this:


He can climb the ladder at the park and by pulling a pillow off the couch to give him a boost, he can climb up there as well. Saturday night I was folding laundry while we were watching a movie and Lance figured out how to put on his own shorts. he was so proud of himself.


Ivy does her share of the tricks too. She can also blow bubbles until she has a beard. (such talent, eh?)


Lance loves his little sister and spends much of his time trying to entertain her…even if she’s supposed to be napping. This particular time Lance loaded her crib with toys – who could sleep with all that fun going on!


Sometimes his constant attention isn’t appreciated.

However, when it’s all said and done, these two have a blast together!
