So why the long break? Well, first the computer was filled up with pictures and I couldn't put more on until I backed them up on the external hard drive, but I didn't want to do that until I had the time to organize them.
Then the camera broke.
And blogger had problems.
And I started as a new consultant with Usborne Books.
And I took on new piano students.
And my baby grew into a toddler who climbs. everything. all. day.
And...life just got crazy! I got out of the habit and by the time I was ready to revisit blogging, I didn't even know where to start. But I'll try valiantly to stick with it!
For now, here are some pretty cute faces I get to see on a regular basis. :)
Mr. Wesley enjoys raiding the pantry. The buckets of flour are the perfect height for him to stand on and get into things to his heart's content.
This table has many good uses. Wesley especially enjoys treating it like a jungle gym.
It's so cute to see him learn things from Talmage! He started "pretending" at just over a year, although I'm sure he's mostly just copying Talmage. He pretends pans are his trains, and his doggie act is hilarious! He crawls around on all fours with his mouth wide open, panting.
We made Christmas cookies back in December. Somebody loved helping with the cookie cutters!
Talmage is quite obsessed with his bristle blocks. They are strewn about the house during most of his waking hours. He builds truck after truck with them. I loved this grader he built!
I just loved this scene the boys set up out on the patio. They play together so wonderfully! (except when they don't...)
First day of Sunbeams!!! That tie's just a bit too big still.
Wesley's chubby cheeks sticking out the sides of the safety goggles crack me up.
And so does this.
Sometimes when Talmage hears Wesley wake up from his nap, he buys me a bit more time by going down to his room and climbing into his crib with him to entertain him. This day he kept him entertained for quite some time and when I came down this is what I saw! Big brothers are the best! :)
Like I said, Wesley treats the table as a jungle gym (it's a counter-height one), and he knows he is not supposed to climb on it. But even though he was blatantly ignoring my instructions, I couldn't help but take advantage of the picturesque moment of him reading on the table. He's a little bookworm these days!
