March in a Whirlwind

March had been a crazy month.  I took the kids home for a quick trip while Cliff worked on our delightful popcorn ceilings.  I attempted to grab some pics when I could.


Urgent Care

It was bound to happen sooner or later.  Our little Noah dove head first onto the cement off of a riding toy and split his head open.  Unlucky for me, I was in Oklahoma City traveling home when it happened.  My friend Heather and I rushed him to urgent care and luckily found out it wasn't too bad.  5 and a half years later, we are still broken bone and stitch free!


St. Patrick's Day

Our church recently hired a new minister for our young adults.  I was thrilled to learn that their kiddos matched our kids' ages.  We have been able to spend quite a bit of time with them in their first month.  They came over on St. Patrick's day.  Natalie planned a fun craft for them and a cute little lunch.  I grabbed a few photos.

Noah and the Sink

This video is a LITTLE glimpse into our life with Noah.  Noah is a different toddler when we are out of the house.  He loves to be on the move and get out.  At home, however, he is full of temper tantrums and moodiness.  At this point, Cliff and I just have to laugh at it.  We already decided that he will benefit from two days of preschool next year.  We try to get him out as much as possible but the unexpected cold weather in Austin has made that difficult this Winter.  He doesn't really like to play with his toys here at the house which basically means he just wants to get into everything that he shouldn't.  Here is a video demonstrating that.  I had been battling with him over this for about an hour and then stood back, took a deep breath, and grabbed my video camera.  As Cliff and I always say, "Good thing he's cute."
