Boreing Kiddos
Here are the highlights of May, June and July for our family:

Birthday
The boys and I prepared daddy a mini birthday party. We made yellow cake and homemade whipped cream and they were so excited for their daddy!
Sleeping Little Folks
And, this is what our bed looked like during the month of May. Weston was cutting his 2 year molars and some nights we’d have all 3 in bed (and John David would bring them back to their beds or just go get in one of their beds!)

  1. Both my husband and I enjoy your updates! This Old House is an absolute favorite here, too. Our first baby is one month older than Ceclia and we spend much of our evenings after she is in bed watching. 🙂 We'd much rather learn to do things ourselves than pay someone to do it for us; even if they aren't doing projects we want to do, it's still fascinating!
