Spring is here!





...or maybe it's summer! We're looking at topping 90 today, and the humidity is already at 68%. And it's not even 10 am. Today, we're packing up a picnic and heading to the park again. We have been out all week, and it's been awesome! It's motivated me so many ways - I'm working out again, dusting off the pilates DVDs and On Demand for a little variety, cleaning the house, bought everything to get my herbs planted... I can't wait for summer time again! Fresh basil, tomato, mozzarella salad, grilling every night, dinner on the patio Mmmmm!



Cole is getting outrageous! It's crazy to think that 3 months ago, he couldn't sit up. Now, we sit, stand, crawl, pull himself up, cruise around the furniture - I have never seen so many finger prints on one TV daily! - and he doesn't stay still for a second. We're on the move! We've also moved in to 18-24 month clothes. For cereal. The kid is a tank! We went to lunch with a friends 10 month old the other day, and Cole towered over him.

He is so inquisitive. Everything is exciting! We weren't a big fan of grass in the beginning, but yesterday he decided to crawl off his blanket and discover the wonderful world on pinecones. The verdict? Delicious.



He is also a swing man. The child has never been happier! We are about to deck in the back of the yard and turn the wisteria trellis into a swing area. I can't wait to be able to take him to the swings - in the backyard!

A tip for the mommas - It's all about the YOGURT IN A TUBE. Cole is obsessed! We went to Panera one day and decided to get him some mac n cheese. The side dish was the same price as the kids meal, and it came with a yogurt too, so why not? Well, it came with a Horizon Organic Yogurt Tube. I was terrified. I did not bring a bib. This was BOUND to be an outfit disaster. Turns out, it was a million times neater than the mac n cheese was. (And if anyone knows where to find the Horizon organic yogurt tubes, drop me a line! I haven't found them at the grocery store!)

On that note, it's time to pack up and get ready before the man awakens!

Ahhh!! 18-24 month clothes, you are KIDDING me! Glad to hear you are feeling a bit better, the warmer weather and getting outside seems to make my days much brighter too. Give Cole Bug hugs from Isla and me!

he looks so happy!! and 18-24 month? wow! emma's 18 month stuff is still big on her waist (and she's 19 months now!) - her shirts are 24 months though. i need to try the yogurt tubes; they sound so much cleaner than the cups!
