what our boo's do

 Yes, Conall I agree...I can't stand to look at this mess either!
Declan told me to come look..."I didn't make a mess Mama, see?"... oh yes, I see!
 Pretty sure that is not what our chair cushions are for:)
And this is a doozy, thank you Conall D for doing some gardening while I was making dinner!

14 months

Little Conall bear you're 14 months old!  My goodness you've had a big month...you now have 10 teeth, are only nursing at night, taking just one nap and are eating waffles for breakfast just like your big brother!  You love to go down the slide at the pool and pour water out of it too:)  You can sign for puppy, more, water and bird.  You still put everything in your mouth, even the sidewalk chalk this morning!  Your favorite thing to eat is strawberries, but you also like applesauce, grapes, pineapple and pudding a whole lot too!  It's crazy to me, but you won't even try pasta!  You are super friendly, always waving to people and flashing your sweet smile:)  You have one of the best laughs, it is a full on belly laugh and we love it just like we love you!

3 years + 2 months

Oh goodness Declan B, could you be anymore of 3 year old boy?!  We sure don't think so!  This past month has mostly been spent outside swimming at the pool, going for bike rides or just playing in the back yard.  You can go underwater all by yourself now and love to jump "way huge" off the wall into the water.  One of your favorite things to do is to build "boats" with our pillows (not my favorite, but it makes you happy).  You love to draw and color on post it notes and stick stickers on big paper too.  You are an amazing singer!  You sing all of the time and we love it:)  Waffles are still your morning favorite, but we think you might turn into a strawberry soon because you eat so many!  And you insist on having ice in your water, drives us crazy sometimes, but you love it.  Dada took you to see your first movie, Winnie the Pooh, and you thought the way big tv was awesome!  You start preschool next month and you have an open house later this month, you are so excited!  Your big brothering skills are coming along for the most part, we know it's hard and one day you'll get that it's pretty awesome to have a little brother.  My favorite part of the day is when you give Conall a hug and kiss goodnight...it's like all the pushing and non sharing didn't even happen:)  Keep being you boo, we love you!

Bye bye Towe family

 Last night we went to Canal Bistro to celebrate Maggie and Jim's big move to Germany (Lizzy and Catherine's parents)!  Lizzy and Declan (along with Mary, Tessa and Milena) have been friends since they were about 9 months old!  We are sad for them to move, but we know they'll have an awesome time living abroad...it might be one big trip for a playdate, but how much fun would that be!  Here's all the big kids...Mary, Tessa, Milena, Lizzy and Declan.
After a very loud and chaotic dinner, the dads took all 9 kids for a walk and for cupcakes so we mama's could chat, sip wine and eat cake!
Here we all are for one last time...Laura, Maggie, me, Ali and Alison:)
 Lizzy:)
 Little sister Catherine:)
 Tessa:)
 Big brother Jake:)
 Milena:)
 Mary:)
 Conall and little brother David:)
 Big brother Declan:)
