Summer got off to a slow start around here.  We had a few teaser days of warm weather and a lot of cold rain this spring.  True to Colorado weather overnight everything changed and we are now enjoying hot summer days and cool nights.  We bought this kiddie pool last year but Edward is much more into this year.  He loves getting naked, going pee pee in the grass and then climbing in the pool to splash around.  Austin was a welcome playmate but he had enough of the splashing and really enjoyed watching Edward from the sidelines.

6 Months

ht. 28 1/4 (95%) wt. 20 lbs 11 oz (92%) head 18 1/2 in. (99%)

Halfway through the first year, hard to believe. You have brought us immeasurable joy, you have brought us to our knees in prayer, you make us laugh and you still don't let us sleep (much). You can roll over from your back to your tummy but not the other way. You love the exersaucer and can bounce up and down in it like a ball. You are fascinated with your older brother and love your dog. You have a good appetite and like peas, apples, bananas, squash and cereal. You don't like avocados. You squeal when you get excited and laugh when we hold you upside down. The doctor keeps telling me that the spit up will get better, I don't believe him- I owe half the laundry pile to you. You sit like a big boy and are showing some signs that crawling is next. You are snuggler and would be happy for me to hold you all day long. I love you, happy half year birthday.

Title 9k


We celebrated Mother's Day in Boulder. Theresa and I ran in the Title 9k (really 9.9 k, why not call it a 10k?because the name wouldn't be as catchy) and were cheered on by our men, big and small. This was a really challenging race for me because I barely trained. I haven't been that unprepared for something in a long time and I was really nervous. Just before pulling into the parking lot Edward choked on his breakfast and threw up all over himself and his carseat, of course we had no extra clothes for him. After an emergency stop on the side of the road to wipe him off, Andy dropped me at the race and took off for the nearest Target. They made it back just as T and I finished and we hung out and enjoyed the beautiful day. Thank you boys for giving me a reason to celebrate.
