Victoria Day Post

So it is a stat and I am not getting paid for it ... Weird! I have been off work for almost a year and I am still not used to it.

So last night we went to the May 2-4 BBQ and fireworks extravaganza in Lawrence Station at Bill and Mary's and despite the single digit temperature we had a great time. The bonus to it being so friggen cold was the fact that we didn't need coolers for the food or the drinks :) We did however cut the fireworks short because it was getting too close to freezing for all the kiddos. The main downfall of the evening was the fact that Daquiri decided that she needed to roll in something dead... So she is now carrying the beautiful aroma of death... Disgusting!

This was the first year of the fireworks when everyone had a kid... I guess that means that we are all growing up.

So I made a new Potato Salad it was awesome... Highly offensive but damn tasty... If you are interested you can find the recipe here.

So there are a few new milestones this week on the Hannah front, Thursday she cut her 3rd tooth, front top left, and the front top left eye tooth is right there as is the front right, needless to say she is not the happiest camper. Infants Motrin is the shit though... After days of battling with Tylenol with no real success one does of Motrin and she seems to feel better, and I think she may have actually slept a bit last night. She is also standing and pulling herself up on things... Mostly her toys, a box and the coffee table( which looks hilarious since her armpits are level with the table... This makes the clean and sweep a much easier task). We tried meat for the first time... Well lets say that didn't go over so well... We will try it again in a few weeks.

If you are staying up to date with the pictography of all things Hannah you will see that she got her first set of wheels, she is much more enthralled with the box at the moment , but she is finding the car more entertaining everyday.

Other than that things are typical in the day and the life of new parents...

That picture of Hannah is hilarious. Like she's doing a one-arm-Jack-Palance pushup!

It's amazing how fast they grow! My little guy is starting to like meat a whole lot now but not without the initial fight! Hannah is gorgeous!

Once they start pulling up, it's game over for Mom and Dad :)

Ah, just kidding. I love watching our little people motor their way around the world. Exploration is the driver of growth.

May they always have that fire in their eyes; may we always be able to witness it.
