New things

I so enjoy observing my kids mastering new things. Like Ryan (my almost-7-month-old) playing with his Nuk... he pulls it out of his mouth and tinkers with it for awhile, then sticks it back in his mouth and has even learned to suck on it upside down (that is, the pacifier is upside down, not him). Or Brandon (my 2-3/4 year old) folding his hands as I work on teaching him to "wait patiently"... ah, if only I could master that myself (waiting patiently that is, not folding my hands)...

Life is good

I love my life! This morning I've been in the kitchen chopping up fresh produce for a couple of soup recipes...makes me feel so domestic. :) Meanwhile, Brandon goes back and forth with his plastic lawn mower, humming and pretending it's a vacuum cleaner... and Ryan has been sitting happily in his high chair (this has been a long time coming!) playing with links. Ahhhhh. Life is good!

Spring has sprung!

Oh Mylanta, it's been a long time since I've posted. Well praise the Lord, I think spring has finally sprung in Minnesota! We had a beautiful day yesterday—sunny and in the upper 50s. Brandon and Daddy played in the yard much of the day (well, Daddy raked while Brandon drove his trucks up and down the driveway). Hurray for springtime!!!
