I’ve received several emails inquiring about our family since I haven’t posted since our February Disney vacation. Thank you to those who were concerned! We haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth but have been keeping very busy.
In March, my best friend got engaged so Justin, the boys and I headed down to Cape May, NJ to celebrate with her and her family. It was Nolan & Luke’s first time on the beach this year!
Nolan and Luke will turn 3 in June so, as with all other boys this age, they are full of energy and opinions. They’re like little Vikings and can destroy their bedroom in 3.4 seconds. My couch cushions? They think that they are their “pirate boat” and any time my back is turned, those cushions are off the couch and on the floor.
“Get those cushions back on the couch, boys,” I’ll say. “But mommy, it’s our pirate boat and we need them.” Oy.
They play together so well and have really been using their imaginations to invent their own games.
Both of them are still napping for 2 - 3 hours every day and have a bed time of 8:00 p.m. They haven't budged from their 27lb and 30lb weights. I went to Old Navy this past weekend and spent a small fortune on summer clothes. Luke is in a 2T pant, Nolan is a 3T in pants, but 2T for shorts. Luke is in a 3T shirt and Nolan is in a 3T or 4T shirt depending on the style.
Potty training has been hit or miss with Luke. He'll do it when he feels like it but Nolan wants nothing to do with the potty. Once the weather gets warmer, I'm going to have them forego pants around the house and concentrate on getting them to actually begin using the potty every day.
I'm still working 3 days a week in the city and am home with the boys for 4 days. I've been growing my photography business and things have been going well for me. I've been photographing families, babies and engaged couples and have 2 weddings booked for this year.
Justin and I have a little getaway planned with friends in the beginning of June which I'm looking forward to. After that, we'll be having a pirate-themed 3rd Birthday Party for the boys. We have season passes to Sesame Place and The Philadelphia Zoo that we will continue to use - just like last summer.
