It has been a week (or two rather) of firsts in our house!! The biggest news being Troy started to crawl...finally. He's been scooting around for quite a few weeks now, but he took the plunge and started crawling the "correct" way. He's still pretty hesitant and content to just sit in one spot and play, which is fine by us!! But he does get curious once in a while and ventures to new places. He has already shut his fingers in drawers several times. Time to get more child locks! Life will never be the same. Bring it on! :)

3-0. Oh yes, I'm excited! I will be expecting lots of chocolate, flowers, MONEY, gift-cards, condolences, you get the idea. So mark your calendars for May 4Th 2010. This year was a great birthday. My two favorite girls surprised me with breakfast. Then the kiddos and I met Erik for a little birthday lunch at one of my favorite lunch places, Panera Bread. Erik brought home Chipotle (another favorite!) for dinner, along with a HUGE double chocolate cake, and strawberries. We had cake and ice-cream with the Rigtrups and Bakers. It was our first "get-together" in our "new" house! Fun! And there weren't even any casualties, so it was a success. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures. Ahh well, there's always next year!
Blowing out my candle on the yummy coffee cake!Today for a little break from unpacking and yard-work, we took advantage of the beautiful sunshine and headed down to Coulon beach. Brooklyn and Troy had a fun little joint adventure in a swing (I'm sure all the parents were wondering what the heck we were doing). But the kids loved it! Tandem swinging is the way to go, you only have to push one swing! Oh, and we were taking a walk on the dock and passing the boats "moored" there and Brooklyn spotted a ski boat with some kids in it, proceeded to say "my boat" and try to climb in. She really thought it was hers. It's destiny. Time to get a boat I guess. Whatever Brooklyn wants, she gets!! :)
Double swingin'!They loved it!Check out that hair! Weeee!So there's our week in a nut-shell. We have our first overnight guest this weekend ("Uncle" Troy). I hope he doesn't mind sleeping in the midst of boxes. But we're very excited to have him! Erik is like a giddy little boy before the first Yankee's game of the season. What? Not every little boy gets giddy before the Yankee's play? Hmmm, thought that was normal. :) More to come on all that later, I'm sure. It's always a party when Troy is around!
