How Time Flies

Saturday, December 11th, 2010

I’m almost certain I’ve posted something with a very similar title before… but the truism is even more true when you’re taking care of two little time-suckers – I mean children. Much has come and passed in the past three months.  Desmond is now a full-fledged walker.  The grin on his face when he toddles […]

Don’t forget the tooth

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Adding to Miranda’s post, Desmond has his first tooth. He’s crawling and is teaching himself to walk… lets see if he figures it out in the next 6 weeks.

A Photographic Frenzy

Friday, August 20th, 2010

Well, really just quite a bit to catch up on, since life has been busy enough to take many pictures, thus leaving little time to upload them.  Totally understandable. There are many more pictures in the July album, cataloguing a few birthday parties, a great visit from Grandmere, some birthday cakes, outdoor fun, and much […]

July Photos

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

This is just a quick post to let you all know that there are some new photos up in a July Album in the gallery.  There’s one of me, doing my best to show off my new hairstlyle, followed by many pictures of the two little ones, as usual.  Desmond has now started crawling meaning […]

The Travelling Annetts

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Another long hiatus, and many more details in our ever exciting lives… We returned safely from Orlando, tired but intact. It was my first -certainly not last- trip where I truly realized that travelling with children is all of a sudden not very relaxing. Well, there are relaxing moments, but it is definitely not restful. […]

We all know how time can fly…

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Well, well. Another month gone by. I honestly mean to post more often, but time is a pretty valuable commodity. It’s not that I’m run off my feet (most days) but to find a chunk of time when I can sit quietly and put together a narrative is not so easy. Life is busy, caring […]

That look in his eye…

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

It’s so amazing, the pure and simple concentration evident in a baby’s eyes.  When he is breastfeeding, I could stare into those two beautiful, bright, unblinking orbs for ever.  He’ll stare at me and I know he’s drinking it all in, completely absorbed in the moment.  He’s not distracted by the day-to-day tedium of running […]

Almost 4 Weeks into the Latest Experiment

Friday, January 22nd, 2010

Yesterday I got to experience the difficulty of trying to cook dinner with a crying baby who wants to be held and a 1 1/2 year-old girl who wanted to be held, fed, played with, chased, and read to.  Dinner did get made, though in a slightly more distracted way than usual. Sophie does love […]
