Sunshine – a 9 month old’s request

March 3, 2017

img_6051It has been a very soggy, snowy winter here. We are definitely ready for some sunshine. The boys are doing really well.

Brandon – He is still playing ultimate most weekends with some snowshoeing thrown into the mix. He has a weekly game night with the guys and is back to swimming and running as well. Sleep is amazing! He is planning a Jonen/Daddy Friday for some quality time. He gets Wednesdays with Samuel, so thought he would show Jonen some daddy love as well.

Jonen – He is a big brother extraordinaire. He is learning new words constantly, tremendous, ferocious,  and enormous are the latest. We started reading him the original Winnie the Pooh chapter book thinking he might be a bit young, but he LOVES it. He just laughs and laughs and sings the Tigger and Pooh songs. He even picked the book over his daily tv show once! His imagination is going full force and that is really fun to see what he likes to explore (mostly space, baseball, and airplanes). It is Hinnamatsuri (Girls Day), so Jonen is excited for the special food they get to eat at school. What else? We got him and Samuel passports, so we can go on some adventures in the future.

Samuel – He is such a blessing to the world. This child is so excited when one of us walk in the room. He starts waving his arms for me or Bran to pick him up. His new move is to pat me on the back each time I pick him up. He will crawl backwards if you put him on all fours. He will stand if you put him next to the couch. He doesn’t really care to do it on his own though. He is most content sitting next to a bin of toys and pulling each toy out and shoving it into his mouth. He now has 6 teeth! His favorite foods are roasted eggplant, avocados, cucumber, tomatoes and mango. He also loves a piece of bread. He is in the 50% percentile for height (29 inches) and weight (19 pounds 8 ounces). He is liking books more and more.

I am really enjoying my part time jobs. At one, I got to hear about the lives of students from China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam and Indonesia. At the other, I organized a panel of doctors and city officials talk about what they are doing to help the opioid crisis. I feel like I’m doing good things for the world again. I’m really looking forward to some time with my kiddos and girlfriends this weekend.
