Sweet Sound of Silence


For the first time in over four and a half months I'm in our house ALONE. Sweet sweet blissful silence. If our bird Molly dares a cheep she might be banished for ruining this moment.

I'm scrambling to do some tasks before a trip but who cares, Chris took the boys out and I have no bums to wipe or mouths to feed or tears to dry. Sweet sweet silence.

Happy to have landed in DC!

While Ethan seemed more than content to climb on and cuddle with his mom for 6 straight hours in an Economy seat, we were BOTH happy to be back home!  The nearby passengers that literally cursed upon seeing a baby seated near them came over and complimented how good he was!

"We made it Mommy!"
Stories and pics from our trip to LA coming soon!

We have the greatest friends and family- and a pretty cute kid too!

Thanks to everyone's votes, facebook posts, and emails, Ethan won a $1,000 prize for being an "Impossibly Cute Kid- Fan Favorite"!  That money will be gone one day, but the sense of support from our family and friends will be a lifelong memory.

Now the voting site shows this headline:
Wow, if he kept this up, Ethan would start paying for himself!  A heartfelt thank you to everyone who put in all that effort!

Yes, he owns another shirt

As I was writing this post to share with you the last bit of our Easter adventure visiting the cherry blossoms, my dear sis wrote me asking, "So, does your kid have another shirt besides that Obama one?" (I bet my Grandpa was wondering the same question!) Why yes, he does, but he did grow out of most of his short sleeve shirts so it is in heavy rotation! So here's the disclaimer, these three posts are from the same day, I do cloth my child, but I also do need to go shopping now that it's getting warmer.

Finally, here are our pictures with the cherry blossoms!

(testing for pollen allergies apparently)


When your kid becomes a tourist attraction

When we last went to the National Mall to see the cherry blossoms, we stopped by some beautiful tulips for a couple of pictures.  Little did we know what would occur...

We snapped a few pictures...

 Ethan wanted to eat a flower...

And while we posed... it happened. 

 A small line started of people.  Asking to take pictures with our child.  Really?!

This woman borrowed someone's Easter balloon to get a smile for her photo op. 

Needless to say, we found it hilarious!

If Ethan starts getting vain though, I'm telling him it was only because of his Obama shirt.  (See what your gift started, Caroline and Frank?)
