10 months old...

and big enough to push his own stroller!
My first "real" Mother's Day (although I agree with my mom: being hugely pregnant last year should count too!):

Hello, Spring? Are you there?

We keep getting faked out by Spring.
Last Monday it looked like this:Sunshine, 56 degrees, and daffodils blooming everywhere!
We even took off our socks and rolled up our pants to make some vitamin D (something we haven't done in way too long!)Then Wednesday it snowed and Saturday looked like this:Yesterday was our warmest day yet! 60+ degrees, sunny, and so hot that I even took off my sweater at the park and short-sleeved it for a while!We can always tell when the weather is good by how many people show up to watch the water show at the Gateway. Often it's just me and Noah. Apparently most people don't like losing all feeling in their faces by the time the show is over, but yesterday there were dozens of people!

Will it last though? The weather report says thunder storms tomorrow and rain/SNOW Friday. Argh the snow!! I don't care what the groundhog said! We're ready for spring NOW!!!

Mima's visit

Christian's mom came to visit last weekend! Due to bad weather (snow. ick!) we didn't get out all that much, but it was so nice to see her!

Our friends JR & Monica and their adorable little boy Bradley were in town this weekend! It was so fun seeing them and seeing our little guys play together!

Mom's visit

My mom came to visit a couple weekends ago! We had a blast!

Come back soon! We miss you!

P.S. Happy Anniversary to my mom and dad yesterday! 36 years! We love you!


My email inbox is empty for the first time since...well, probably since I got it over 10 years ago. I had over 2,000 messages in my inbox today (over half of which were unread). I hated to even check it because there was so much junk in there! I made a folder for keepers and purged the rest.

Though tedious, it was like a trip down memory lane:
pregnancy updates,
honeymoon itineraries,
wedding plan emails from my mom,
ticket confirmations from the first concert Christian and I went to,
3 seasons worth of Fantasy Idol updates,
European backpacking trip details,
letters from my Japanese penpal,
emails from a college classmate asking for the phone # of the high-schooler who stayed with me on her campus tour,
and countless emails from the relentless Slovakian exchange student from my junior year of high school.

Sometimes emptiness feels good!

P.S. Whenever I look at videos of Noah, he hears himself on the video and stares at me with the most serious hurt face that pretty much says "how dare you cheat on me with some other baby!"
