Life

Just for the faithful 1 or 2 of you who I know want to see some updated pictures.....


First- the big brother
We signed Tallon up for swim lessons starting next Saturday ( he is going to be in a class with 1 of his friends ). so I wanted to make sure he was not afraid of the water- last summer- it took him a while to warm back up to the pool! I was glad we did this... sure enough.... it took about 15 min of Tallon watching several boys throwing a ball around and swimming and Daddy coaxing him to get in and finally- he found this little duck thing that he could hold onto and off he went. IT was not long and he was ALL over the pool-kicking and completely free of daddy's hold (although daddy was nearby!!) It was nice to do something as a family (although Tess and I just watched from the sidelines!! He was worn out and is already asking to go again today...
We have had a good week overall- still working on trying to get some sleep around here, but as I have been told-- we do have a newborn so what do we expect!! Thursday night was rough, but I managed to keep Tess awake for several periods during the morning and afternoon yesterday and last night was actually better- she slept from 10:30 until 3 and than went back down at 4 and slept til 7 AM. not too bad- she seems to want to wake up after her middle of the night feeding for some reason!!


Daddy with his kiddosand because I realized I don't have very many pictures of Tess and me !


Look who found her Thumb!!!!!
and.... She smiled at me several times ( well, THREE TIMES) yesterday afternoon!! It was absolutely the sweetest smile and I am already ready for some more!!
