 Happy Mothers Day
Hanging out in Grand Rapids 


Way behind, way behind!! So here are the highlights from April.  We celebrated Charlie's 2nd birthday, started soccer with Maggie and Caddie (Coach Rob and Coach Brendan :), and Maggie had her first dance recital. 

Charlie had a small family party and owl cupcakes with some of his baby friends while Sissy was at preschool.  He is an active, silly little guy who always makes us smile.  He LOVES all sports, especially football and baseball and is constantly throwing, kicking or hitting something.  That's not always a good thing!! His language has exploded in the past month and he is really able to communicate now.  Its been so much fun to hear his thoughts finally.  He is still a great sleeper though doesn't want to go to bed before the sun these days. Who can blame him though? His favorite movies are Finding Nemo and Rio, he loves peanut butter, cheese and any kind of baked good.  He is still a little tiny thing coming in at the 2% for weight and 10% for height.  What a guy!

Maggie seems to enjoy soccer but really loves going to dance class.  Imagine that! Her first recital was so super cute and made me realize just how much time my own Mom spent waiting for me as I danced through my childhood.  Thanks Mom!
