Day 5 and 6

(I'm counting the days of Spring Break in case you were wondering)
Day 5: I took the kids for a walk and then Kai and I went `swimming'. I forgot that when you go to the pool with a 2.5 year old, you are basically standing in water up to your knees the whole time. At least everyone got a view of my new bathing suit?! Awkward. Kai was really brave and went up to his neck without even thinking about it but was not interested in swimming. He said he wanted goggles to dive down to the bottom so maybe we will get some. We put our feet in the hot tub at the end and he jumped right in.
(Isn't Kai the cutest kid ever?!)

Oh ya, great whole wheat pizza dough recipe that I made yesterday. We made a pesto chicken pizza. SO YUMMY.

Day 6: We brought Kai to gramma's this morning to play with all his cousins and we'll head there for dinner tonight. I took Koen on a run and I totally forgot how hard it was to run with a jogging stroller. He slept the whole time though which was nice!

His feet are so wrinkly because they are always sweating regardless of the temperature.

Chubby fingers

TIP: if you ever buy a present for someone who has a kid with zippered sleepers. It's the clothing that can be changed the quickest and that's good because:
a. they can't be on their back for long while changing them
b. you change them a lot.

I've started reading `The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency' series and I'm enjoying it. Nice, light reads that can be finished in a couple days. Gary and I are feeling like we don't have a lot of time to just relax or read or run because Koen requires a lot of time right now. We were talking last night about what we thought about having kids before we had them. I don't think we even really thought about how much work it is to have kids. Kids are exhausting and we only have 2! It's the newborn stage that kicks our butt. Totally worth it. Koen's giggles and smiles are awesome.

And of course, another picture of my big boy who is now wearing underwear everywhere we go (except for at nap or bedtime). I can't wait til my purse/bag is just full of my stuff and no more diapers and wipes!!


  1. Sounds like you are having a really nice spring break. I hope you are getting lots of family time!! Cute pics! Zippered sleepers are definitely great inventions. I have one sleeper that is buttons?? I have never put it on her because I can't imagine trying to do buttons at midnight.

  2. I hate to break it to you but it may be a while before you don't need diapers or wipes, as Koen is only 2.5 months old. Glad you are having fun. I definately need to take ani swimming again.
