Resolution Update - Months 2 & 3


It's been a sad past two months on the reading front. Stuff came up. I was tired. I got lazy. Blah blah blah. In January I was done with my four requisite reads early on in the month, and sadly I'm now way behind. Will try to get back on track next month. Plenty of time to get caught up!

The Thirteenth Tale - can't remember where I originally heard about this book, but I ordered a used copy online and polished it off in just a few days. Eerie, magical, a book about books, a twisty story within an even twistier story. Good stuff.

Anne of Green Gables - an old favorite, which always makes me think of Miss Kristen Tuculet, an enchanting little Anne Shirley in her very own way. Now I'm really yearning to go back and re-watch the movie as well.

Charlotte's Web (read aloud to Graham during bedtime the past two months) - forgot both how personable the characters are in this story as well as how terribly sad it is at the end. Ups and downs, life goes on. Content aside, it's such a nice treat when both of us are home at bedtime to be able to read a chapter or two while G has his evening bottle.

Cross your fingers for better reading vibes next month!

How Big Is Graham?

Thiiiiiiiis big!

A little bit late for our 15 month visit (made it at 16.5 months, whoops!) but all is well in the health department for (not so) little G! He weighed in at 25 lbs 9.5 ounces and has grown another 1.5 inches since his last visit. He's still about average for height and weight, but top of the charts for dome size. All the better to house his giant brain.

He showed such an interest in the doctor's tools that I went out and got him a kit that same day.

Who needs a checkup? Doctor G is in!

G is for Green

Spring is in the air!

Starting to get warm enough to wait for school pickups out on the stoop...


and  stare wistfully at big kids  roam around the park without a giant parka on.

Starting to get brave / cabin feverish enough to get into trouble...

and strong enough to manhandle items larger than he is

Time to get outside and get those wiggles out!

Happy Easter!

We had quite a few Easter treats thanks to some very thoughtful grandmas!

Though we had zero colored eggs, because I had my heart set on doing this whole shaving cream tie dye thing and couldn't find the right food coloring for it so just bagged it. Next year Graham will be ready for both dying and hunting eggs!

Later we had an adventure to Brooklyn, 
to visit Aunt Soph's new apartment and BRUNCH SO HARD.


Despite a nasty cough, G loves being out and about in the city.

Hope your Easter was full of giggles and grins!

G is for Growing Vocabulary

This little imp is talking up a storm!

New words in his rapidly-expanding bank:
hi, bye bye, water, Grampa ("bopbop"), shoes, Leigh Leigh ("yaya"), apple, Nonna, balloon, pizza...

We're drilling him with flashcards!
Just kidding. :)

But seriously...
