First zoo trip of the year

We went to the zoo for the first time this year. What a busy day to choose!  We had to stand in line for about 10 minutes (ordinarily there is no line!) and there were about 8 field trips. 

After the carousel, Daughter did not want to leave. I'm thankful that we had cousins there and her cousin was able to convince her to leave. 
We went to the library after the zoo. It didn't go exceedingly smoothly when we had to leave, but no fit!

First tooth!

Bottom left

We had a play date out here this morning. So fun!  One of the boys found a worm that became beloved by all by the time they left. He placed the worm on the play set (his mom said he couldn't take it home 😉) and told Daughter to watch it. 

As they pulled away, Daughter said "I gotta watch the worm!"


It's dead. But she's watching it 😜

4 month check

He's teething. His bottom teeth are really popping through. 

Last night was rough. For the past two days Son has been fussier than normal, but last night he was up 7 times 😩. I really was expecting to sees tooth this morning!

Today was his 4 month appt so he got shots on top of the teething pain. He's a tough little guy, but boy is he fussy!  

I brought Daughter with to the appt. she did wonderful!  I really wasn't expecting her to do so well!  


Afterward I was able to get a smile out of Mr Smiles 

He's off the charts for weight (21 lbs 6 oz) 
And 81% for height (26 inches)

First foods!

He's tried oatmeal cereal and peas 😊


He's not really great at actually eating.... he pushes more out than he swallows but that's normal, right?

Mother's Day/ birthday gift

I got a strawberry garden!

Mat and Daughter put it together and planted the strawberries 😊


So excited!

Garden time!

My three perennials are doing good!  Rhubarb, raspberries, and cilantro. I hope we get some raspberries this year 😊


Daughter and Wasabi wanted to ride with me to add the weeds to the brush pile 😊

Unofficial homeschool

We just do a bit here and there, no structured curriculum yet (we already purchased My Fathers World pre-k for 4 year olds)

Some days go like this...


And then other days....

And then Daughter asks for ice cream....

We're going to start the MFW curriculum in August when she is 4. For now, just working on her attention span 😊
