It is a beautiful gray and rainy day here in Colorado. It almost never rains here and I do miss the rain. Elliot likes rain too. I had a hard time getting him to day care today because he wanted to keep standing in the rain. The whole time he was telling me about how
Happy second birthday, Elliot! Elliot turns two today. He has changed so much in the last year. He has grown from a baby into a little boy. Compare these pictures an you will see what I mean. Elliot and I a couple of days before his second birthday. Elliot at the beginning of this year
It has been a busy couple of weeks since I last posted. Audrey is doing great. She is a very easy baby. It seems that she and Elliot share a low key, go with the flow, temperament. (Hopefully I am not speaking too soon.) Catherine and I were a little worried that we might have
Audrey was born at 12:31 today. She weighs 6 lb 9 oz and is 19 inches long. Both Audrey and Catherine are doing great. Audrey has bright red hair just like her mother, but there is a definite resemblance between Audrey and Elliot.

We have sorted out all of the gender neutral baby clothes we had for Elliot and are in the process of washing them (and
Elliot has started to grasp grammar. This week-end he started constructing his own sentences. Previously he had only been repeating phrases that he had heard us say. Now he seems to grasp that a phrase is a series of composable words, rather than just one long word. Which is good because he does have a
Only five more weeks until my daughter will be born! That is not very long. It is a planned c-section so we know that she will be born on August 31. The schedule is quite nice with a toddler. He goes to daycare as usual and when I pick him up he will have a
My son slept in his bed (as opposed to his crib) for the first time last night. We got the bed last week-end and he took a nap in it on Sunday, but he slept in his crib on Sunday night. Last night he really wanted to sleep in the bed so we let him.
